You can try either dropshipping or purchasing in smaller wholesale quantities to get started. You will make more money if you purchase the merchandise rather than dropshipping. Dropshipper usually charge a fee and have higher prices for them to make a profit and for handling the products for you. There are a lot of great wholesalers on salehoo. Just figure out what you want to sell, than find a source, order a couple hundred dollars worth and start selling it. I would recommend doing plenty of research ahead of time to make sure you can resell whatever you decide to purchase. Good luck.

If you are first starting out, it's best to start with dropshipping because you don't have to lay out a lot of cash or any at all because you won't have to buy the item until you get paid from your customer. You don't have do any of the shipping or carry the inventory either.

Once you start making a little money with dropshipping, then you can start buying in bulk with the profits and make even more selling that way.
