Hi,

I am thinking of open a new store to store halloween costumes and masks. Could anyone provides me with some links for the drop shippers that ship internationally? I am staying in Singapore and I hope to sell it to the local market.

Thank you so much.

This close to Halloween, you would be much better off just promoting on an affiliate basis. As a general rule of thumb, you need tobe 60-90 days out when sourcing seasonal stuff ie. July and August are the right times to be lining up suppliers for Halloween-themed items. There are various reasons for this, not the least of which being that unless you have a massive advertising budget you aren't going to be able to build meaningful levels of traffic to your site/listings in just a few weeks.

All the big retailers are out in full force with sales, most of them have affiliate programs -- BuyCostumes.com is a great one to promote (available through CJ.) I've promoted their products every year for the last few and done pretty well with it, in some cases on sites that have nothing to do with Halloween at all. Their commission ranges from 10-25%, which is easily on par with what you'll net dropshipping anyway, so there's no real tradeoff in my opinion.

Hello Jumper18,

I'm afraid Frank's perfectly right about your timing being quite late as it is now the end of the 1st week of October and we only have 3 more weeks before Halloween unless you will be selling these offline.

Last year we also featured Market of the Week Blogs with Halloween related products -

You'll find featured suppliers towards the end of each blog :)

All the best!

Hi, thank you so much for the answers! Appreciate it. After some research, I think I have to give up on this due to time constraints and limited order amount.

Thanks again.

On Behalf of Frank, you're welcome! Always glad to be of help :)

But you might keep this idea and save if for next Halloween.

Cheers!
