Find Wholesale Drop Shippers
If you've been trying to find quality wholesale drop shippers for selling on eBay or your ecommerce store, here are
some tips that may help; specifically, what to look and what to stay away from.
Find A Reliable Payment Method
When you can pay your drop ship supplier via a reliable payment method, it means you have protection against
them scamming you by taking your money and running.
Payment systems offered by PapPal, PayMate and Google Checkout are some of the best and most reliable.
Look for Competitive Pricing
Drop shippers must charge their retailers anywhere from US$2-US$5 per item in order to cover their costs of
storing and shipping the item on your behalf, so it's important to make sure that the prices they offer will be
Look for Exceptional customer service
The Wholesale dropshipping business
revolves around good customer service, just as with any business. You need to offer exceptional customer service to
your customers and you should expect this same service from the drop shipper that you use.

dropshipper has a clean record.
To do this, enter the URL of a supplier you are looking into. Look under 'Registration Record' and see when the
site was created. If it is less than 2 years old, I would recommend you find another supplier. Don't be tempted to
give them a try because they are the cheapest you can find. New suppliers are much more likely to be questionable
than established ones.
Secondly, check their contact details. Look for email addresses that end with @companyname. If you are buying
patio supplies from PatiosRUS for example, expect to see an email address that looks like firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't go with dropshippers or suppliers that use free accounts such as hotmail.com or
It's unlikely that a reputable drop shipper will invest thousands of dollars into a wholesale business and

Find a drop shipper that help you grow your business.
A good dropshipping supplier can do a lot to help you grow your dropshipping
Most importantly, wholesale drop shippers can help you generate more sales by providing additional services such
as inserting your provided brochures, discount vouchers, thank you notes, and compliments slips.
This will personalize the items you sell and help foster a good relationship between you and your buyers.
Be sure to ask potential suppliers about whether they are able to do this for you. Many of them are more than
happy to do this, as it means they will gain more sales from you in the future.
