Do You Need a Wholesale Dropship List?


Visitors: 223

Do you need a wholesale dropship list to be successful with dropshipping? There are quite a few services out there that offer list of wholesalers that offer dropship services but do you have to use one or can you find the information yourself and save yourself a fee.

In theory there is nothing to stop you finding your own companies that offer dropshipping services but it is riskier then using a safe list which has been tried and tested and it is also more time consuming. However it can be done.

One of the first things to do is use the search engine and type in terms like “product name dropshipping" or “product name drop ship" and see what comes up. This is risky as anyone can get near the top of the search results with good marketing so it is important you look into any companies you find this way thoroughly. Also look further than the first page of results as you may find a few hidden gems.

Another thing you can try is contacting the manufacturer of the product directly as they may provide there own dropshipping service. Even if they don't they may recommend a distributor that does.

Trade magazines are also worth checking out as you will find plenty of advertisements in these from both manufacturers and distributors. This can be a nifty way of building your own wholesale dropship list.

Finally if you don't want to use a dropshipping directory then your last place for help may be one of the forums related to dropshipping that is on the internet. You will often find links to dropship wholesalers on these. The problem with this however is that people only tend to share average dropshippers as they keep the best ones to themselves.

In my opinion it is easier and safer to use a wholesale dropship list provided by a directory but if you really don't want to pay a membership fee then it can be done, it will just take a while.
