you have to contact one of the mods and pay a certain monthly fee to obtain and maintain retailer status. you also get your own retailer page.

I think he's asking more about becoming an importer / retailer, and not how to get retailer status here on ASC...

dude no offense, but none of the current retailers would tell you because the last thing they want is more competition.

I don't think it's fair to characterize all retailers like that.

However, if one is serious about going into airsoft (gun or parts) retailing, be prepared to do your own original research and establish your own suppliers, rather than what amounts to the so-called "spoonfeeding".

i dont mean to say that in a negative light, all i am referring to, is that from a strictly business perspective, i wouldn't want more competition to take money away from me. We all want a monopoly unless we are not part of it kinda thing.

ILLusion told me they define a retailer as anyone who sells new goods on a regular basis for profit. So if you just sell parts you'd be still considered a retailer if you do it all the time.

Kind of related but what about group orders? Are those considered "retailing" if it's a once and only once type thing? What about a once a year group order?
