    I don't understand.

    This discussion seems like a little guy just works with his tools, some aftermarket parts and knowledge.

    Can't someone become authorized through a manufacturer, sell a few machines and get access to OEM parts, manuals and firmware?

    Maybe I am naive, is it like 100k to become a dealer?

    It depends upon the vendor-if you look at second tier vendors, like Sammy or Muratec, you may be able to sell their line without a quota, no strings- If you look at some distros, like Carolina Wholesale, ACM, or Nuworld, you can resell the KMs, Ricohs, or Toshi, along with many other lines, up to a certain speed, again with very little commitment. To make a deal with a major vendor is like signing a contract with the devil- could be good, but you will feel the heat.

    Katun.com can help on some of the copier suplies, but like someone said before google is your best friend for looking for parts, toner, etc. Hang in there.

    Dont take out a loan; Save 4-6 months expenses before attempting to start business.
