A little background about me an my partner.

My partner has worked most of his life between catering and as an IT specialist. My self i have my own cleaning business and we are both looking to venture out in the world of on-line retailing.

We both looking to start an on-line venture we not not sure on what products to sell although knowing ebay as well as we do we have found it a tough market place in the UK to make a profit as most items we see selling on there are either being sold for what we can buy them for or with very little profit.

We signed up with salewoo hoping to source wholesalers in the UK we looking at an initial stock of about 100-200 GBP. Only problem we are having at the moment is deciding what product and the stuff we doing research on is once again selling cheap er on ebay then some of the UK wholesalers you have listed here

I dont think we are interested in dropshipping but might be tempted if the profit margins are right and the product is right.

I have to admit we quite disappointed with the amount of UK wholesalers we have found on here but i have well 59 days to keep looking and researching products. If anyone has any ideas or info please come forward.

Many Thanks

Hello bethany87,

Finding a product with a high profit margin usually means finding a niche market.

Here are some products we have found to have good profit margins:

- Clothing
- Skin care (e.g. anti-ageing & acne treatment)
- Vacation-related items (swimsuits, crocs, sunblock)
- Homewares (towels, sheets)
- Accessories for electronics
- Crafts & hobby items
- Sporting goods
- Computers & computer parts
- Auto & motorbike
- Unique items/collectibles

However, bear in mind that we give out this list to anyone who asks! It is always most profitable to come up with your own niche market.

One of the best ways of doing this is just by selling some stuff from around the house that you no longer need any more. In the process, you will often stumble across items that sell really well that you would never have otherwise picked!

Good luck :)
