Hi KO, and welcome aboard!

I think the best place for you to start is checking out the Education tab in the red menu bar. Perfect starting place for someone just starting up. There is a stack of information on the Forum as well, so definitely read through there looking for topics relevant to you. You can use the search bar at the top in the side menu to seek out those topics that are on point for you.

Of course there's always plenty of assistance available for anything specific you need to know by dropping in a question on the foum.

Cheers

Welcome to SaleHoo, KolstadOfficial!

Nice to have you with us! Marc's sent you off to the right place. I recommend starting with our New User Manual, found in Link hidden: Login to view (the 7th guide down the page).

After all the reading you might want to start brainstorming and eventually 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. One idea is to jot down your interests and then make a list of products that are related to these interests (we recommend staying away from electronics to begin with as warranty issues can be complicated to manage).

You can use our SaleHoo Research Labs to help you find profitable niches to sell. Every Monday we feature a new niche via our Monday Market of the Week blogs, here's our latest Link hidden: Login to view

Should you need help simply let us know!

All the best :)

Hi again! I have read alot of the education tab , but it's still a bit unclear on the part of importin, shipping and like the process from fx. A chineese site and thrn to ebay? Do I order the goods to myself and they resend it to the auction winner? How do I do this? Do I have tocross off or sign something? It is said the site where I import from eill take care of pavking and etc? I' m confused.

Hello again KolstadOfficial.

It depends actually, if you order via dropshipping then yes your dropshipper will pack the orders and ship directly to your customers. Oftentimes the details of y our dropshippers will not be found on the package so it would seem to your customer that you posted their order to them.

Wholesale dropshipping is a very popular form of product sourcing because it allows you to pay only for the items that you sell.

It works like this: You find a dropshipper and set up an account. Different dropshippers 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 dropshipper's provided photos and product descriptions for the items you wish to sell and list them on eBay or your website. After you make a sale and receive payment, log into your dropshipper account, select the product you have just sold and take it through the checkout and pay for it. Enter the buyer's shipping details, and the dropshipper will package it up and post it. Basically, the big advantage of dropshipping is that the dropshipper takes all the responsibility for handling and managing stock, saving you a heck of a lot of time!


If your purchased your products via wholesale in bulk/volume then the bulk order will be delivered to you where you will repack and post to your customers personally.

Hope this helps!

I am new here. Having done a fair amount of selling on both ebay & Amazon I have decided to join up and start my own website (through SaleHoo) and select a suppler(s) and go from there.
I have done the business license, fed and state tax applications, etc.in preparation for this endeavor.

Other than doing the aforementioned online selling privately the concept of drop-shipping appeals to me and I look forward to getting deeper into e-commerce.
The problem is seasonal sales are upon us, and while I hate to pass up the opportunities available I am concerned about how well I will be able to balance working at something I am excited to be involved in but is new vs. family obligations this time of year.

Would it make more sense to spend the next couple of months just lining up my ducks and then hit it hard after the first of the year?
As I gain more experience 'on the job' I would expect to learn how to better manage my time to meet all my obligations

Any advice from those with lots more experience at this than I, would be very appreciated.

Hi Dale and welcome to the forum,,

I think you're in the best position to know how much time you have available to dedicate to the business at this time. Really, the most intense part is researching you'll find, getting it all planed out and running. Once it's up and running, you still have to stay on top of your research to make sure you're still relevant, but it's not as time consuming.

Cheers

Thank you Mark. Yes,I will have to make that assessment with regards to the time I will have available. There is still a lot of knowledge I need to absorb. a lot of it on this website.
I am getting closer so I think I will know when I need step it up and get things moving. Being well prepared is essential as well as dedication.

Thanks again
