Actually, Worldpac will set up anybody to sell their parts retail for them. In the long run, this strikes me as a bizzare business practice that is going to make a lot of people unhappy. They've already lost a lot of wholesale customers that have found out they're selling retail. Besides that, Worldpac is encouraging new vendors to actively compete with established "Worldpac Web Partners" such as FastLane and Benz Bin. Ultimately, most of these "partners" will fail. There are already at least 50 vendors competing with each other with absolutely identical product lines (prices vary slightly from vendor to vendor, depending on the multiplier they're using). I can only assume that the Worldpac management has lost their collective minds. They may be reaping profits now, but these business practices are going to backfire sooner or later.
