Hello! My first time here!

I wondered if I can have more than one dropshipper/seller? I primary want to sell horse/dog stuff, but if that seller only have that, and I want to sell something other too, besides that.

I have sent email to a company, not here on SaleHoo, if I can be dropshipping for them, can I find more here on SaleHoo too, if they say yes?

Hi LadyNinja, welcome to SaleHoo

You can sell as many products as you like, from as many Drop Shippers as you like. The things to watch out for if listing on eBay are to ensure your item location location accurately reflects the items actual destination, not that of your self (if different to the item)

Shipping and shipping times is another area to watch. As different suppliers may have different shipping rates and shipping times, it's important that your listings clearly identify that information, and that you don't just use a generic system for all listings which can cause customers to complain.

Cheers

Hi and welcome LadyNinja,

Nice to have you with us! Like Marc said you can sell as many products as you want as well as use as many droopshippers as you want.

I would just like to point out 2 things -

PRO - By using several dropshipper you get to offer a wide variety of products to your customers.

CON - Shipping may be a bit challenging, especially when your customer orders several products all from different dropshippers. But if you take the time to mention in your listing the country/place origin of your products your customers may have an idea of what to expect :)

Should you have any further concerns, please feel free to let us know :)

First, let me thank you for your replys!

I´m getting the hang of it, I think :) The dream would be that me and my living partner cud have two online shops. I really want to sell horse equipment, and the other site would be a different team - putting those together in one shop, I think would be a little "messy". But I think I need several dropshippere for just only the horse store to, to get all things that I want. And have wondered how to do it with the shipment if the buyer buys from several. So thanks for that tip as well!

I´m mainly focusing to sell out to my country, Norway, and not planing so much on ebay either, at the moment.

Not sure how to fix the shippment problem. When a customers buy something from the store, when they check out, its general one shipping cost, this is when items are sold in the country, from place to place IN Norway. Ok, the same thing if I use dropshippers outside Norway, but if they buy from, let say, 3 different droppshippers at one time? What then? But I guess I must learn and read more about this.
