Okay,
I've been hunting through these suppliers for a few days.
I'm trying to find one with low priced products to sell on my eBay Store.
I have plenty of space on my eBay Store about $3.5 million.
Im having a hard time finding a supplier that's not competitive as Amazon (just being honest)
I'm currently searching North American dropshippers with no tax id.
Where do I go from here? What should my strategy be?
I prefer to dropship directly online because I don't have much room to store bulk products in my house.

Help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi James,

What type of products are you looking at drop-shipping exactly?

Drop-shipping is an ultra-competitive market to deal with in general, but some fast turnover hot selling markets are completely saturated and near impossible to compete in when using a drop-ship model.

I'm looking to dropship anything. My store is more like a flex store.
Okay, so what strategies can I use to search for hot selling, low competitive niches other than your Market Research Lab?

I guess I'm willing to wholesale as well.

Well there really isn't any such thing as a hot selling, low competitive niche. Hot selling markets are always the most competitive and the reason why drop-shopping in those markets isn't a good idea is because of the competition you face from large volume wholesale buyers. In fact, some wholesale suppliers are selling direct and at wholesale prices as well.

So if you're going to move into a hot selling market, then wholesale is most definitely the way to go.

If you want to stick to drop-shipping in those markets, then your only real option is to run with a bundled marketing technique. That can actually take a competitive disadvantage and turn it into an advantage in some instances. With bundling, the objective is to package 2 or 3 drop-shipped products together, from the same supplier if at all possible for ease of shipping.

What you do it make your profit on one item only, then sell the other items in the bundle at cost. This can then give you the price advantage over other's selling each item individually. You have to make sure that the items all compliment each other, no good throwing in two diamond rings and a fishing rod for example.

That's one technique that can get you an advantage with some customers, not all of course because most will only be looking for the single item, but if you can bundle smart, you can create sales.

In regards to other market research tools, Terapeak is a very highly regarded tool to use.
