That is a business basic, you need to learn things like that before spending any money.
Buy some business-books off the internet and read them.

I'm not an expert, I would only Google "business book" or "economics book".

Be extremely careful how you use and give credit.

As a specialty shop you will be putting together 3 machines for a reseller
who pays on the spot.
Then 15 and pays again, one day he orders 60 and as you finish he 
informs you he will only pay half as much :-(
What will you do ?

Know your product. Don't be afraid to help someone install something, or fix something for someone. Don't buy cheap products... even if you are more expensive, people will come to you if your products last. The only way a small computer store will survive is if you have a good personal touch. If you have the same attitude as the big chains, then everyone will go to the big chains, because they will be cheaper than you can afford to be, and they will have a better selection than you will. The only way you can survive is if you have the better business ethic.

I wish you the best of luck! :)

thanks for your answer ! I will keep this in mind.
No problem! :)
Don't buy "cheap" products, buy "low cost" ones - the difference will be fewer irate customers.
