What is Bitcoin?

what is bitcoin?

Both small and large retailers are now starting to accept the digital currency called bitcoin, so what is bitcoin and how does it work? Well bitcoin was started just a few short years ago in 2008 by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto who created the Bitcoin Core software and helped to set up the virtual network required to use and mine bitcoins. It is a peer-to-peer payment system with no central power structure or administrator lording over the minions in a central bank fashion. [Read more...]

List of Wholesale Clothes Suppliers

wholesale clothes companies

One of the larger and more popular categories on the Wholesalers Network website is the clothing and fashion category. I’m currently going through it to delete companies that have closed down and to add new wholesalers that haven’t been listed. If you’re not already listed in the Wholesale Clothes section or you use a great clothing wholesaler that isn’t listed, let us know about it. [Read more...]

New Year’s Resolutions for 2014

new year resolutions

How fast did 2013 fly by?! I can’t say it was the best year for me financially, personally or physically, so I’m looking forward to 2014 coming around. I’m going to make a plan and work the plan well. My new year’s resolutions this year will not be something I think about at the start of the year and forget about by February! They’ll remain on my work desk and be reviewed daily or weekly, depending on the goal. [Read more...]

AliExpress Complaints

aliexpress review

I’m in two minds about AliExpress: I like it because you can connect with suppliers to buy cheap products in small amounts but I dislike it because they just don’t have the dispute system worked out properly. Dealing with a wide range of manufacturers and suppliers in China can be a nightmare! I have used them quite a few times now and most suppliers I have bought from have been honest and fair but I have also dealt with thieves. [Read more...]

Chocolate Factory to become Marijuana Farm

hershey chocolate factory

I was just reading an interesting story about a chocolate factory possibly becoming a marijuana growing farm and had a good laugh. The Canadian factory in Smith Falls, Ontario previously made chocolates for the Hershey’s company for decades. Tweed Inc has now applied to grow medical marijuana in the location. The two businesses would probably compliment each other well; as after the customer has had some of the marijuana he or she will inevitably get the munchies and then go looking for chocolate bars ;-) [Read more...]

List of Wholesale Food Suppliers

list of food suppliers

I have been working on the list of wholesale food suppliers on the WholesalersNetwork directory and have noticed that quite a few smaller food producers have closed up shop over the years. I guess it’s in part because of the larger food producers and processors buying up the smaller players, but I’m also sure there’s a lot failing to adapt in this new economy. [Read more...]

400 richest americans

Bill Gates has topped the Forbes 400 richest Americans list again in 2013 with an estimated net worth of $72 billion dollars. That’s a lot of zeroes. It is the twentieth year in a row that the Microsoft software billionaire has claimed the number one position in the United States. The Forbes business magazine has said that Bill Gates has also regained his title of the richest man in the world from the Mexican billion Carlos Slim Helu. [Read more...]

Wholesale Blogs

list of wholesale blogs

Wholesale blogs are few and far between when compared with shop front blogs or e-commerce blogs, but things seem to be changing. Same goes for social media and b2b, it has been a neglected area for many companies. More and more companies are starting to see that it’s about building relationships with current customers and an offshoot of this relationship building through blogs and social media then leads to creating new customers.
