Google, Shopify, Alibaba, eBay, Walmart and others are all building marketplaces and you can find millions of products on them that used to be available exclusively from distributors. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, right? Well…maybe. The Wholesale Change crew will talk about how, why and if you should build your own marketplace to fight back.
