Hi guys,

I just bought my salehoo store and I found a few wholesaler for my niche and I would like to have some tips on how I should start.

My niche market is women shoes and most of the wholesaler I found do not dropship. I don't have a lot of cash flow yet so my order will be low.

Everytime I order a pair of shoes they come in a package of 12 and I can't choose the size.

I don't want to have many products sleeping in my inventory.

Anyone has strategy about how many to order etc ...?

PS: I have pretty good wholesale price on the shoes I can make arround 20-70 $ profit

Hi Chris and everyone,
Just starting out myself this month with the Salehoo store. Going with basic items for children. Not a lot out there for me with my little storage area and limited cash. I still have not figured out how to take credit cards with the store. I am looking into Paypal Website Standard but do not know if it is compatable. Has anyone any suggestions.

Chris, I hope someone gives you some tips on your problem as I am trying to learn myself. Best of luck and I hope to see you profit well.

Hi Navel,

I hope you'll be doing good you too! I think it only a question of time and hard work.

I hope someone will answer both of our question!

Hi again,

Just emailed support at support@salehoo.com about best way to accept credit cards through the store and how to set it up for the customer to use. Slowly it seems to get things done. (Wish I had relatives who have already done this.)

Hi Christopher,

Sorry about the delay in addressing your posts, we're a bit swamped with support tickets and trying our best to respond to everyone.

For starters, I would agree that Dropshipping would be the best way to start especially as you are just starting out and you will be selling various sizes. Having a shoe size or style not sold is a risk you cannot afford at this stage.

I did a search fro you and found a few more dropshippers that have really beautiful women's shoes -

To set Paypal details, click on Paypal, and fill in the PayPal email address, Status to enable. Once a customer purchases an item from your store, he/she can use credit cards to send payment thru Paypal, which will then gets credited to your PayPal account.


Hope this helps :)

You're welcome Chris :)

Sorry took long for me to reply to you but I checked out the supplier you mentioned in your post and they seemed pretty legit. They have been online a little over a year but there does not seem to be any negative feedback or comments about them.

I read through most of their site and everything looked promising. Their products were amazing too!

You'll need a resale or sales tax ID to do business with them. I'm not sure where you are based but the equivalent of a sales tax in other countries, would be a VAT ID, GST or ABN.

Hope this helps :)
