Looking For The Best Wholesale Sources And Suppliers Online

Apr 24, 2008
With more people having access to the internet nowadays, there are larger numbers of people who are searching online for information on particular products that they wish to buy.

One of the best ways you could run a profitable business is to find wholesale sources that would drop-ship these items to your customers when they visit your website looking for information on a particular product. You might also set up auctions of eBay to sell these items.

However, all the wholesale source e-books that you see on the internet, offering you a list of about 10,000 drop-shippers are not all they appear to be. Either the price is too high to make a profit, or they have many links which lead to websites which are active no more, or lead to wholesalers who sell junk items such as dollar store products or as-seen-on-TV items. Most of these wholesalers who find in the e-books are only lists of what we might call 'middle men'. They buy from the real wholesalers and resell the items to the customers at a higher price in order to make a profit.

The best thing would be to be able to do away with the middle men and find the actual wholesalers of brand name items at prices which will enable you to make a profit. You can do this, but not if you keep depending on the obsolete drop-shippers lists and e-books.

You shall have to find these sources on your own. It might even be as simple as finding a product supplier or manufacturer and asking them whether they will drop-ship the product directly to the customer. Otherwise, you might have to negotiate some kind of a deal to make them drop-ship for you. Whichever way you work this out, you will be able to make a profit as you can get the brand name products which are in demand at a price which is reasonable to you.

If you are wondering how you could find wholesale suppliers, you can find almost all the wholesalers in the United States listed in the Yellow Pages. You should use the 'Search by Word' option and type 'wholesale' and also select your state from the drop-down box. You could also do a nation-wide search.
