Any supplier listed on any given directory should be able to give you a clear indication of what their product conditions are. It is very important to determine the quality of the products that you're purchasing before you invest.
It is also based on what your demographics is, If you are okay with selling refurbished products because the demand is high for such goods - then by all means, look for distributors that can help you find good condition refurbs that come with warranties.
As a distributor of goods - I can tell you that it is crucial to build relationships on both ends. We truly feel that it is absolutely necessary to really get to know your customer's needs before offering products.
We let our customers know that we stand behind our products 100% for authenticity, being brand new, and directly from the manufacturers in their factory sealed condition.
We have about 10% of our customer base that is in the market for refurbished products that come with warranties but they are all within the US. How these warranties are handled through the manufacturers once the product is in a different country - it's very hard to say.
Keep in mind that when you're doing drop-shipping, there are a lot of costs involved with the transaction. We have found that depending on the level of business you are running, if it is feasible to purchase wholesale - do so. This way you are in control of the inventory that you are buying, shipping costs can vary based on your location and the location of your customers. We have over 700+ 3rd party Amazon sellers that use FBA in the US as well as sell on multiple channels within Amazon.
Not sure if I addressed your question properly - but just some thoughts. Happy Selling. Feel free to reach out and ask questions if you have any.
