Hi I am new to drop shipping and was planning to sell products on my own website. However it has occurred to me that I will only be able to use one supplier or else if one customer chooses products that come from 2 or more Suppliers they will receive many different packages.

Can anyone advise on this? Any ways around?

Hi and welcome to SaleHoo REP :)

Nice to have you with us!

This has been discussed a number of times on the the forum and I'm sure on other forums as well.

Yes, your customer will receive 2 packages whether you like it or not. But it is also advisable that you mention in your listings where your items will be shipped from so your customer will pretty much have an idea that they will be receiving separate packages :)

The key thing there is having a shopping cart that will allow you to facilitate the check out smoothly for multiple suppliers and I think the following posts will help you with that -

You might ask your suppliers. It would seem reasonable that this is an issue that would have been brought to them many times before.
