Hi there.

I am a new member (joined less than 24 hours ago) and have been reading up on the directory, research lab, forum and blog posts, etc for several hours now (before and after joining). I have already learnt a lot since coming across SaleHoo, and would appreciate some individualised advice.

First: Would love to know what route people have chosen to sell online. Are you on Ebay, Amazon, your own website? If you're using your own website, are you using SaleHoo stores, Shopify, Wordpress Woo Commmerce, Ecwid, etc? Would appreciate reading your experience, especially if you're based in AU. But happy to read stories from non-AU folks too. Do you dropship, wholesale, or both?

Second: If you're many suppliers do you usually work with? If you dropship, how do you track orders if you're working with several suppliers? Do you put a note in your shop listing which supplier it's from, etc?

Third: Do you do this casually, part time or full time? How many hours per week do you put into your online store?

I hope you don't mind me asking all these questions. I have read several articles and such on doing this business, but I find I learn a lot from individual experience stories so I always appreciate hearing from people.

I look forward to reading your story!

Hi Shai and welcome to the forum,

I can see it's more personal feedback from members you are wanting here, so I'll just encourage for others to share their stories with how they started and where they are positioned now with you.

If you need any specific advice, just give me a shout out :)

Thanks, Mark.

I've posted a request on this thread - Link hidden: Login to view

Also, if folks aren't able to share stories for whatever reason, I'm most curious to know if you have any tips in managing multiple suppliers and tracking orders, etc.
