hi guys,

i have been a member of salehoo for a few months now and have been looking into dropshipping, however as of yet haven't committed to a supplier due to fears that they are untrustworthy; u could say im scared to take that leap of faith!

i am looking at selling health and fitness related products, mainly dietary supplements such as protein etc; can anyone help me please? i would be grateful if anyone could recommend me a supplier that they feel trustworthy :D

thanks guys!

Hi Kiss,

I just want to highlight that drop shipping is a great way of starting an online business without upfront capital. You list a product for sale at a selling platform, such as eBay, and you don't have to spend on anything until after it gets sold and a buyer pays you for the item. Risks of financial loss is comparatively low as compared with sending big amounts of money to purchase products in bulk. But of course bulk purchasing has its own virtue, and I just would like to address the fears you are feeling in dealing with drop shippers. Simply put, at single product order/delivery you can already tell if a drop shipper is trustworthy, and it is not like you will be hopelessly stuck with a bad one. As with all business endeavors, some level of risk will be present but we shouldn't let fears prevent us from getting into the action. :)

I wish you the best, Kiss. :) I'll try to search for drop ship suppliers for the health products that you prefer and I'll get back to you shortly.

Hi Kiss,

I agree. With drop shipping, you don’t need to spend lots of money upfront to buy inventory, thus minimizing your risk.

I do understand your concerns about purchasing from a new supplier, what I can suggest is, before you begin using a drop shipper, test their shipping time and presentation by placing an order addressed to yourself. This will allow you to see how the supplier really is to work with and whether they are value for your money. Then continue to carry out occasional test orders to make sure standards are being maintained.

All the best!
