Hi josephine2606,

Welcome to SaleHoo!

The first thing we suggest you do is decide what type of products you want to sell. Generally it's best to start selling something you are interested in because you are going to be spending a LOT of time thinking about it! Do you love fashion or movies? Perhaps you feel excited about the thought of new gadgets and technology? It's likely that there are plenty of other people who also share your interest - giving you an instant audience for your product. Check out the following blog posts for ideas on what to sell:

Once you've thought of a couple of ideas, it's time to start researching suppliers. When you've found the supplier who fit the bill, set up an account. Different drop shippers 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 drop shipper's provided photos and product descriptions for the items you wish to sell and list them on eBay or your website.
