Every owner of a reselling business is aware about the importance of establishing a good business relationship with a reliable dropship wholesaler. However, finding such is not a very easy thing to do. To guide you in your search for a company that will meet your standards, some tips are listed below:
Use Search Engines
Using search engines is normally the starting place in finding a dropship wholesaler. All you need to do is type in the relevant keyword or key phrase. You may try using some combination when searching like typing “dropshipper”, “dropship company”, “wholesale distributor”, etc. Patience is required because you might have to look through so many links until you find a good offer. Keep in mind that most of the time, the best offer does not come from dropshippers but from middlemen. Therefore, don’t make hasty decisions to avoid disappointments.
Post on Forums
This is where you can get some invaluable information from real people who judge by their own experience. You can simply read the posts or, alternatively, post your own question and wait for the community help. Normally, people are glad to share the information.
Of course, your competitors will never disclose the information on the dropship wholesaler they use. But what you can do is to make a small purchase in order to trace the manufacturer (look for shipping labels and/or return address on the package). You may need to perform additional search to get the contact details of the company, but it shouldn’t be a problem
Look Through Classified Ads
Quite often, dropship wholesalers advertise in local and national newspapers. Check classified section regularly (classified ads of popular national newspapers are published online as well).
Check on Exhibits and Tradeshows
However, don’t give up because you can visit exhibits and tradeshows as an option. Although it might take some of your time, you might be able to get recommendations and tips from people that you would meet there.
Look from Dropship Wholesaler directories
A good genuine directory can be a golden mine for any re-seller as it lists even those drop-ship wholesalers who are not indexed by search engines (some don’t have a website at all), as well as the range of products and prices, making it possible to compare and find the best deal.
