Hello I live in the UK and havnt really got any idea what to sell.

I have tried a few sites, I like the idea of dropshiping, but there dosnt seem to be very many in the UK, and the only other ones I found had charges of like $50 shipping which totaly wrecks any chance of a profit.

Any help? What are the best UK sites if there are any? or what international ones are there that are viable for ebay?

Hi there,

Did you look at our bonus book of UK wholesale suppliers? "Link hidden: Login to view

Trade Shows and liquidation sales are a great place to get ideas as well as establish relationships with wholesalers.

Outside of the UK, China is the cheapest place to find wholesale stock.

As far as drop-shipping concerned, it is often cheaper to take care of shipping yourself when you first start out - if at all possible! It's more work, but it gives you a little bit more breathing room as far as profit margins are concerned. Aim to build up to drop shipping when you become more established.

Finding a product to sell takes time and most people try several different items before they find a niche.

If you are on a budget, or lacking space, consider researching small products that are easy to store and cheap to ship, e.g. music, golf balls, ties etc.

Hope this is of some help and good luck!


Grace
