Import/Export Start-Up Company, Hi
Be happy to provide general info IF and WHEN you give us some.
Go to Members page and share some info.
Do you have a Business Plan??
Do you know about SCORE?? SCORE is FREE
Yes I do have a business plan and thanks for the SCORE info. I will be glad to share info once I learn a few things first.
Well, I can provide one tidbit of hopefully useful advise:
If getting a merchant account to process credit cards is in your
plans, you are in for a very difficiult time. Your industry fits
virtually every high-risk criteria there is, and as a result import/export
busiesses are on the prohibited list of virtually every US
processor I've ever heard of. Your only viable option
would be an offshore merchant account provider.
If you need such services, please contact me and I'll
be happy to point you in the right direction for a offshore account.
Good luck with our new business.
What are you planning to import and export?
First, find yourself a good freight forwarder/customs broker.
Second, do your due dilligence before you send money overseas. IE visit the company you're planning to buy from, ask who else they sell to and check up on it.
For import/export I would suggest the following sites:

Would you like the name and email for a import sourcing specialist? He can help you find the items you are looking for. I am not a big score fan, they do nothing for new businesses that are starting out.
