Hey every body, I have just joined and I am really excited to do drop shipping the beginning, however, I am not sure how to use the resources in this website.

I thought that I will find all the products listed in this website, however, I realized after joining that I can only see the directories of the suppliers and information on their websites or their emails.

That's fine, I just need a kick start here to what's going on. I am an IT guy for the last 12 years but I have decided to get into the trading/selling in my part time and to let my wife lead this business.

Okay, please help me to understand the following :

1 - Is this website designed to inform you about the suppliers only and not to list their products specifically ?
2 - How can I know which supplier is a drop shipper enabled ?
3 - I have went to some of the website listed in the directories but these suppliers are also selling online so they are competing with their distributors ? I am sure that there is a trick here
4 - How can I access the products as a retailer and see the original/agreed value from these suppliers ?
5 - Are these suppliers going to know that they have been referred from salehoo ? what is the nature of connection between salehoo and these suppliers ?

Thanks
Ismail

Hi Ismail and welcome to the forum

In regards to your questions

1 - Yes, we are a directory of suppliers who have been fully verified as safe to trade with. We do not list products ourselves.
2 - Most will clearly identify that they are dropshippers, but even if they don't, I would suggest it's always a good idea to ask them if they will.
3 - No trick, it's quite common from many dropshippers and wholesalers to use platforms such as eBay to also sell their products.
4 - This is a question that would need to be directed to suppliers individually.
5 - Entry into our directory is through an application process only and only those that pass our verification process get listed.
