It's understandable to have a minimum order amount to be able to purchase wholesale. I can even understand a minimum yearly amount, BUT to be able to become a customer of tierracast, com, you have to supply even the invoices of other wholesale purchases (each has to be over $500) among other things. So I guess, they are not interested in smaller, developing business.
You also have to apply for a wholesale account FIRST, before you can even see their prices. So - you give up all your info, take all the time to supply everything to them and then you find out, that their products are hopelessly overpriced and you are not interested anymore.
I don't think so.
PS - I have read the representative's comment to which I would like to add: I did not experience frustration with the 'qualifying process' (not important enough). I simply stated that I cannot recommend this site and the reasons. And no - I won't buy retail because those prices are way too high for a business and no - I won't come back to apply. There are plenty of businesses around that appreciate new customers and make them feel welcome - I will go to those instead.
