    Lambda-tek are a dropship etailer.

    The operation works by taking a distributors feed , put maybe 1-3% profit on it,list live prices and product info.

    Essentially the company model- is a website, a database, someone employed to answer and process customer/ supplier issues.

    When a customer puts an order to Lamdatek , their system puts a direct ship order to a wholesaler/distributor .


    As their are minimal overheads the business exists by providing large volumes of kit at low profit margin . The negative is their is little value attached/customer service.

    For Consumers/IT manager who know what they want can get low cost IT hardware which is supersweet! providing the stock feed is upto date you should have no issues. The problems occur when the feed is incorrect , out of date or someone at a wholesalers makes a mistake.

    The only issues I have had are -

    If there is a stock feed issue
    Customer service
    Returns can be a pain
    No credit lines

    Ideally if could have a company that can do the same pricing , provide payment terms , have the same product catalogue and offer customer service then that would be awesome ! .... I'll drop you a PM .
