How do you have businesses order from you? I don't have a fax machine and have taken some over the phone, and some e-mailed in. I was thinking of setting up a store just for wholesale, with a password permission setting.<br><br>
What do you do?<br><br>
Thanks!!<br><br>

do you do most of your business on the web? If so, then you may want to have a password protected page for stores. I don't do web sales but get most of my orders via phone, then fax. usually stores call wanting to make contact with an actual person, ask questions, then they fax in their orders.

You could create a wholesale catalog in word or something and have a link from your store that says<br>
Wholesale<br>
then it will direct the people to email you for wholesale information <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><a href="http://www.beantreesoap.com" target="_blank">www.beantreesoap.com</a> has a similar page<br><br>
seems like a simple solution <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I wholesale my book and here is what I do:<br><br>
I have a secure online order form they can use to send me an order with their credit card number.<br><br>
Or they will call me and I'll take their order on the phone. Then I let them know if they want to reorder they can use the order form online.<br><br>
I don't have anyone fax me anything.<br><br>
A lot of places will email me first, but most call.

I have password protected wholesale pages on my site. I also bought afax machine which has almost paid for itself with the number of faxes I've sent and received.
