Hey Marc, I'm new to salehoo and have a desire to drop ship eventually. I checked the sources in salehoo but couldn't find Nooks to sell. I had a few that I recently sold that I got from a customer giveaway and we had some left over. Any idea where I can get them? Also, is there a fast start step by step instruction section to start using salehoo? Need to find products and drop ship or minimum up front money. Thanks!

Hi Vernon and welcome to the forum

Nooks?

Excuse my ignorance, but what are Nooks exactly lol. I'm guessing we're not talking about general nooks and crannies here?

Hello, I also am new to salehoo I've been looking for about 2 days straight and can't find any cheap item's.All the items I've checked on are the same price I pay on ebay.also I called 2 suppliers and they said they do not sell wholsale.1 even called me back because they had no idea that they were on salehoo?? the other retailer had lamp's $30.00 higher than amazon?? when I search for manufacture's half the suppliers are not manufacture's.I did find 1 drop shipper but for a item that cost $4.32 it cost me over $11.00 to ship(this should be no more than $4.00 to ship?? this is the biggest question why does the salehoo search not look like the 1 on youtube when reviews show how to search.I also searched for telecom products and can find them but -the retailer is not a wholesaler so they did take the item I was looking at down from $24.00 to $18.75 if I bought 100.take into count I was selling the same thing for $20.00 on ebay.Am I doing something wrong.thanks for your responce

Hi Michael and welcome to the forum.

Looks like there are a few points that need addressing in your post, so bare with me and I'll do my best lol

1. Supplier prices the same as eBay - OK, give me a day or two on this one as I'm going to do an entire post on this subject.

2. Suppliers not selling wholesale - Our directory includes both Wholesalers and Dropshippers, as well as Liquidators, so you have to pick which ones suit your business model.

3. Not knowing they were in the directory - Despite what they have said on the phone, the only way into the SaleHoo directory is by application and then undergoing and passing a verification process.

4. Dropshipping delivery charges - That's an area where you have to be careful with Dropshippers, you need to make sure their shipping charges are viable or that will ultimately impact on you.

Let me get this other post up over the next day or two and I'll link you to that. I think that will answer any of the other points.

Cheers

Hi Austin,

I have responded to several points in that post, if the answer isn't there can you be more specific as to your question so I can assist.

Cheers

I am having the same problem and I have paid high dollar for drop shipping directories and I been on those directories for about a month now from sun up till way past sundown and its the same thing, they are selling cheaper on ebay than what I can buy for and then add the ridiculous shipping fee and i'd have to pay people to buy it.
