Im a new member here at salehoo. I have found a couple of interesting items to sell, but I only wonder how to start. Should I just find a supplier who accept dropshipping? And what should I do next? Which questions should I ask, and how should I do this? Are there copies of messages made by other members which I could look at and get some inspirations?
Sorry for my bad English skills :)

As for dropshipping, you need to find a reliabler one.

My suggestions is that you can buy some (small quantity) hot products you like and have profit to start online sales.

Hi Ida,

Welcome to the forum!

*Should I just find a supplier who accept dropshipping?

-Yes. There's a way to filter your supplier search to show only dropshippers. To do this, simply click on "more options" (found under the listed categories) at the bottom portion of the categories. Please click on the link to view how: Link hidden: Login to view

*And what should I do next? Which questions should I ask, and how should I do this? Are there copies of messages made by other members which I could look at and get some inspirations?

-You can start by contacting drop ship suppliers directly. We have ready-to-use templates to make things easier for you. Just follow the step-by-step guide below:

1. On the Members' Dashboard, click on Wholesale Directory found on the upper left corner of the screen (please see link to view).

4. Click on Contact supplier button to view our email templates (please see link to view).

Hope this information helps.

Hi Ida,
My company does drop shipping to all US addresses and it is included in the price of the product. We can certainly be a starting place for you. I was a new seller just like you a few years ago. You'll want to build as time allows, bringing on product after product. Get good at researching the products potential before you spend a lot of time setting up a listing. Make sure that the product will move at the price you need to make a profit. Also, plan to make small margins. As a drop shipper you are only out your time and maybe a listing fee. For pushing paper, you can't expect big margins. Volume is the key to real income in dropshipping. A good goal is 50 products that move consistently. For example, lets say you have 50 products and half of them move every day and that you make 3.00 profit per item. 3x25 is 75 per day profit. multiply by 30 days and you've made 2,250 in profit that month. I hope that this helps!

Hi David and welcome to the forum,

You can search for specific drop ship suppliers in the directory, follow this link for navigation advice Link hidden: Login to view

I think it might also be a good idea to run through our Seller Training Centre for some helpful tips as well. You'll find the link to that in the black title bar at the top of the page.

Of course we're always also available to help out where ever we can, so just give a shout out anytime you need advice on anything.
