Hello treeof life,
I'm sorry for the late reply. It's been a bit busy here lately with the new site just launched.
Not all wholesalers dropship but we do have reliable dropshippers in our directory that can help you with your business. Here are threads with lists of dropshippers that may have what you are looking for - Link hidden: Login to viewLink hidden: Login to view Link hidden: Login to viewLink hidden: Login to view Link hidden: Login to view
If I understood your concern correctly, you're asking what makes dropshippers different from your everyday brick n mortar retail store where you can buy items one at a time. The catch is at your regular everyday retail store you pay everything you purchase, when dropshipping you only pay your dropshipper when the item actually sells -
It works like this: You find a dropshipper and set up an account. Different dropshippers have different setups but usually you can choose to credit your account, or, you can simply leave it empty and pay for each item as you sell it. Once you've created an account, all you need to do is grab the dropshipper's provided photos and product descriptions for the items you wish to sell and list them on eBay or your website. After you make a sale and receive payment, log into your dropshipper account, select the product you have just sold and take it through the checkout and pay for it. Enter the buyer's shipping details, and the dropshipper will package it up and post it. Basically, the big advantage of dropshipping is that the dropshipper takes all the responsibility for handling and managing stock, saving you a heck of a lot of time!
Why we have DH Gate? Well both sites offer a big marketplace for you to choose from. Yes they are a big mix of good and bad suppliers but we have many members who have found success by selling products that they source from Chinese sites like DH Gate. It may take long before you get to weed out the bad ones from the good suppliers but once you do you can use that to your business advantage. Lightinthe box as well has some steal offers that many sellers can take advantage of.
Hope I have addressed your concerns correctly, if I missed any please let me know.
