While the reasons commonly given include wishing to avoid conflict with their distributors, or the inevitable logistics headache of going direct to consumer; the two that always come up are: The prohibitive cost of entry, including the technology and additional personnel; and the business' lack of experience and understanding of what it takes to successfully run and grow a customer facing business.
