    So my customer's business area is textile. (Curtain etc.) We will ship products from Turkey to everywhere in world. So i have some question about it...

    - Is this a problem that shipping from Turkey for you?
    - What should be rate of comission
    - In house affiliate program or network (cj, linkshare etc.) Which one is ok for you?
    - Do you interest if i launch a program like this?


    My other ideas is about this program,
    - %100 parasite free
    - datafeed
    - creatives and more

    i'll happy if you have any ideas and recommendation about it.

    Thanks

    I am not sure about the price of your product - but for low ticket items(<$50) international shipping costs is a major issue

    I was looking for new canadian programs here. An international company was adding $46 - 100+ dollars for shipping on posters/prints. No one in their right mind will pay that much when same products are condsiderably cheaper elsewhere. Freight costs wil definately be a concern for many.

    Are you gearing more towards wholesale? If you just want to sell curtains etc. to the international community, then you really are going to have to have incredibly low prices to offset the shipping costs.
    I personally woulnd not buy from Turkey as I am sure I could get cheaper items from here in the USA. (once shipping costs have been taken into account)
    Therefore, I would find it difficult to promote your company. As you sell heavy items, ie curtains are very heavy if they are of good quality, then it will cost a lot to ship them. I am not sure my visitors would buy items from Turkey.
    However, it may be that people associate Turkey with quality fabrics and textiles, and are willing to pay the extra.

    - Are these "Curtains, etc.." so special that they are only produced in Turkey?

    - Are "Curtains, etc.." of Turkey world-famous that people in the US (which will be your major market if you are going to sell it on the internet) will want to buy it direct from Turkey and not mind 8-10 extra dollars for the shipping?

    If your answer to any of the above is "yes", then go for it!

    Start with a B2B marketplace where you can tap into the wholesale trade. List your curtain items and even the raw materials to get at reapeat buyers. Then from that list find some stocking distributors in the major world markets who can do drop shipping from their stocks to eliminate the huge per order shipping bill on retail sales.

    Our products isnt cheap. But its 100% polyester tulle curtain. Also this company already is a manufacturer, wholesaler and exporter. They are exporting 70% of the production to 30 countries mostly european and USA...

    So my target is not the visitor who is looking for cheap products. if visitors looking for best quality and exotic designed curtains (1500+ products range) price is not important for them? Because i think curtains are one of the most important thing for home decoration

    emphimy-

    On a side note, does this manufacturer create cotton duck roll goods?

    Why don't you fill a container/half container with different items, ship it to the US and mail the items directly from the US, it would be much cheaper and more appealing to customers.

    Yes, That's a nice idea, ship some stock in bulk to the US first, then ship it internally as the orders come in.

    I have a low tolerance for complication, and this one sounds way too complicated for my tastes...
