Hi everyone!

I'm currently selling on eBay using Amazon as my dropshipper; however, is not eBay where I've been wanting to sell, but Amazon itself. Since I don't have much capital to buy in bulk from suppliers I have to stick to dropshipping for a while. I've been doing lots of research on this subject and has been very difficult to find reliable dropshippers to sell on Amazon. Any recommendations?


Thank you!

Hi Marjorie and welcome to the forum

I can't really recommend any particular dropshipper personally because I don't deal in that particular market. That said, all of the suppliers have been fully verified in the directory.

What sort of unreliability problems are you having exactly?

Hi Marc,

Thank you for your prompt response. Here's the deal, I haven't found a dropshipper that doesn't sells on Amazon himself, not that I've had any particular unreliability with any of them. I understand that buying in bulk from wholesalers and contacting manufacturers to brand myself is the best way to go, but currently I don't have a decent capital to start with. Having said that, I chose dropshipping, because I can start off with less amount of capital.

I was hoping to have a better insight from people who are currently utilizing dropshipping as their method of doing business, and have been successful with it, and if they can recommend wholesalers that would also drop ship, considering the fact that is Amazon my platform of interest.

Regards,


Marjorie

Hi Marjorie,

That's a problem right across the board, even wholesalers are now selling at wholesale direct prices to customers through the large outs like Amazon and eBay. Online business of course allows them to do that, sometime using a completely different brand so as not to be discovered and upset their usual customers.

It's hard to compete against dropship suppliers that do it, but pretty much impossible to compete with actual wholesalers selling individual items and volume discounted prices. Just another hurdle online sellers need to try and jump, no shortage of those these days unfortunately.
