I'm looking for Drop shipper of camera brands - Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony
I found their prices but it is impossible to be competitive on eBay, Amazon and other ....
Do you know of a Drop shipper with a good value for money?

Hi and welcome to SaleHoo, Bir!

Electronics is actually one of the most competitive markets online. The electronics industry has always run on very low margins from wholesalers to end users and marketplaces like eBay have only tightened the margins even further. Most electronics sell at the wholesale price or below wholesale on eBay. That's how intense the competition is. The point is, the number of sellers present in the electronics market is deceiving. It's much more difficult to make money in this market than it appears. If you do wish to stick with the electronics industry, then here's what we suggest -

* Use liquidation suppliers to get bulk lots at prices well below wholesale.
* OR: Purchase from wholesalers in very large quantities to drive the wholesale price down.
* Increase your feedback and get powerseller status BEFORE entering the electronics market. This will give you more visibility in the search.
* Sell via your own website or your eBay store if possible, as buyers generally pay more from these venues than eBay.
* Add third-party extras and up-sells to your orders. These will help you bump up your margins to a much more acceptable level.
* Better still - consider selling accessories for electronics rather than electronics themselves. Accessories are very popular, have less competition, cost less to ship and have much greater margins.

Here are a few related posts you might be interested in reading. The suppliers mentioned aren't all drop shippers, there are also wholesalers and liquidators.
