Hi,

New to this business, only sold a few things online and just joined Salehoo, looking for some pointers if anyone can give some! Looking to mainly drop ship as opposed to wholesale.

Thanks in advance

Hi Franakamura, welcome to SaleHoo.

You'll find quite a lot about starting out written throughout the forum, but a great place to start is reading the information we have available in our Education Centre. Just select the Education Tab in the red bar above to get started.

When you have time, read through some posts on the forum in regards to just getting started, best products to sell and so on.

You're welcome Frank! Glad I guessed it right :)

That's a good plan you've got there Frank, and to make it even better I suggest by starting with the small stuff you find in your own home. Look for things you no longer use - check your closets and cabinets, I'm sure you'll find plenty to sell.

This way you get to test your market with a lower risk factor since you didn't (recently) pay for the products you will be selling, plus you might even under cover a niche!

Also, this gives you the chance to work on your feedback while you hone your skills in selling :)

Hope this helps.
