Actually I think GreenToe is more of a "broker" meaning they partner with a variety of suppliers. They just provide a universal gathering spot on the internet where buyers can search product, offer a price and then those requests to buy get filtered to their partners. Those partners can either ignore, accept or make a counter offer back. My guess is that GT then takes a small slice off the top for making the connection and brokering the sale.
Also, when I spoke to the GT rep, they explained that some of their suppliers just ignore really low ball offers. The way she made it sound was they had a "filter" of sorts on their side. My interpretation
of this was maybe they had the ability to only see offers that were no more than 20% below MSRP, or 30% or whatever number they thought was reasonable and fair. In other words, they wouldn't even waste their time reviewing a $1 offer for a $2,000 product. But they may consider a $1,700 offer. I do know with the C9 I purchased, I only got a (counter offer) response from ONE retailer.
The supplier that I purchased from was from the USA. I am not certain if they have overseas partners. They may do so, as long as they are AUTHORIZED dealers, as they state that is a core requirement. And something you want anyhow, so you get full warranties, etc.
I would try emailing them your question. Please report back and let us know the response. I'm sure there are others that would like to know for sure.
