UK Wholesale Directory

The SimplyWholesale wholesale directory was first published as an eBook by one of our directors, Richard Grady, way back in 1999. At the time the directory contained details of just 50 suppliers. Since then, the directory has grown to a large database which contains details of over 1000 genuine UK wholesalers who can supply you with just about any product you care to think of.

For your convenience, the wholesale directory is split up into different categories so that finding a wholesaler for a specific product is a quick and easy task. The current categories are:

  • Alcohol
  • Books
  • Catalogue/Chain Store Returns
  • Childs/baby equipment
  • Clothing
  • Computers
  • Cosmetics/perfume/healthcare
  • DVDs/Videos/CDs
  • UK Drop-shippers
  • Electrical equipment
  • Fancy goods/giftware
  • Food
  • Furniture
  • General wholesalers
  • Household/soft furnishings
  • Jewellery/watches
  • Mobile phones & accessories
  • Novelty/fun items
  • Pound lines
  • Sundry wholesalers
  • Tools & hardware
  • Toys & games
  • XXX adult products

Full contact details are supplied for the wholesalers listed including web and email addresses if applicable. Please be aware though that a large number of the main UK wholesalers still do not have a website and although many have email addresses listed, they are notoriously bad at responding to this method of communication. We advise buyers to telephone or ideally visit wholesalers in order to obtain further details about what they can and can't supply.

The wholesalers listed in this database are supplying eBay traders, shops, mail order businesses, market traders, party-planners, car-booters and many similar traders across the UK right now - there is no reason why they can't supply you as well.

The range of products that you can purchase at low, low 'trade-only' prices is huge but here are just some of the products you can purchase from suppliers in the SimplyWholesale directory:

  • eBay top selling products
  • Playstation/console games
  • PC games
  • Sports/fitness equipment
  • Mobile phone covers
  • Televisions
  • Fancy goods
  • Novelty items
  • Videos/DVDs/CDs
  • 'Latest craze' items
  • Designer clothing
  • Furniture
  • Computer equipment
  • Giftware

The above list contains just a fraction of the products being offered for sale by the wholesalers listed - there are tens of thousands more products just like them!

Remember, every single wholesaler listed is based in the UK - there are NO overseas suppliers that you won't be able to contact or that won't want to deal with you.

Don't be fooled by other websites that offer lists of '5000+ UK suppliers' - most of these directories are fluffed up with details of discount stores and other cut-price outlets. These are not wholesalers at all and are included merely to allow the seller to claim that they have more wholesalers in their directory than their competitors. The fact is that there are NOT thousands and thousands of wholesalers in the UK and the best suppliers can be counted only in their hundreds.

Why pay for pages and pages of names and addresses that you will never use and that will just bog you down as you search for genuine trade suppliers?
