Bwanaz Partners with World Depot to Provide Unbeatable
Bwanaz (JJFK Inc.), an online fusion marketplace platform that combines wholesale and retail, announces today that it has partnered with World Depot, a global supplier that boasts 65+ warehouse locations worldwide and a 500 million dollar yearly-revenue, to make wholesale affordable and easily accessible for small businesses. This gives small local businesses the opportunity to expand and grow in the marketplace. Big companies have unmatched buying power and ample resources to beat out small competitors," says John Xie, founder of Bwanaz.com (JJFK Inc.) "That's why these big companies have monopolized the market. To this day, it's been next to impossible for small businesses to flourish because they simply don't have the means to purchase wholesale in bulk the way large companies can, so wholesalers always work with the big players. It's like the rich grow richer and the poor get poorer!" John Xie continues. "But that's all about to change. With Bwanaz partnering with World Depot, we now have a way to close that gap! This partnership makes it possible for small businesses to purchase items with shockingly low wholesale prices and with small MOQ's- as little as two units! Even when combined with shipping, the total wholesale cost will still be 30% to 35%, or as much as 50% lower than what the big companies can get.

"This is revolutionary! This will change the entire existing retail and wholesale structure of our current marketplace because this will even out the playing field among the big and small players. Anybody who has tried starting a small business knows how difficult it is to promote and maintain its growth. This partnership between Bwanaz and World Depot is the solution to helping small business owners get their big break!"

Terry Tan, co-founder of Bwanaz.
