Profile


Today, GiftsWholesale.Com has more than 50,000 registered buyers. We specialize in the wholesale gift industry and are past gift industry reps and distributors ourselves. GiftsWholesale.Com is intended to help buyers for retail businesses find wholesale vendors.

GiftsWholesale.Com went online in February, 1998. It was the intent of founders Toni1 and Gary Ivey2 to create a gift industry portal on the World Wide Web, where buyers for retail businesses could find wholesale vendors and order their products, as well as helpful information about products, trends and events. Many manufacturer lines are accessible through GiftsWholesale.Com’s Alphabetical Vendor List, representing hundreds of thousands of products. You can also search by Product Categories to find which vendors have products you want.

GiftsWholesale.Com is one of several portals created by OmegaNet, Inc., the developer of the CAMEO© (Complete Automated Electronic Ordering) and CAMEO EZ© software and Content Management System. OmegaNet has built hundreds of wholesale (B2B) websites on the CAMEO EZ platform.

Other portals include:

The concept of delivering catalogs electronically came to the Iveys in the early 90s, before the World Wide Web became the phenomenon it is today. When the Internet became a practical delivery system for pictures, the Iveys added web design to their experience in gift wholesaling and media production to create GiftsWholesale.Com .
