3. Find the right supplier
Suppliers are the backbone of your dropshipping business, and you need to spend good time researching and finding the right ones so it runs smoothly. .
To start with, you can find suppliers by running a Google search for wholesalers or manufacturers in your niche.
Here, make sure to search extensively—go through several pages of Google so you can explore different suppliers and shortlist the best ones for your business.
Another way to find suppliers is to browse wholesale directories available on SaleHoo, Worldwide Brands, and Wholesale Central. These directories give you a database of vetted dropshippers—you can sort them based on your market or product and easily find suitable suppliers with their contact details and reviews.
Besides these, you can even look up niche suppliers on websites like Amazon and Alibaba.
No matter what method you choose, make sure your suppliers:
- Have experience in this business.
- Are reliable and easy to contact.
- Offer quality products at the best price.
- Have suitable policies to handle returns or damaged goods.
- Offer favorable shipping costs and times.
Before finalizing your supplier, you can even place an order with them to see how they work and check the product quality for yourself.
