Hello everyone :)

We have decided to put together a list of marketplaces where sellers offer wholesale prices. Although these sellers offer wholesale prices for some of their items, we cannot add them to our directory because we can't put them through our usual vetting process to prove that they are legitimate.

Here are some of the most popular ones -

When using these marketplaces, always check the sellers feedback scores and use safe payment options when buying from sellers on these marketplaces. Safe payment methods include PayPal and credit card. Avoid wire transfer, Western Union and bank deposits.

SaleHoo does not ensure the safety of using these marketplaces - you have been warned!

Have any of you tried buying from any of these sites? We'd love to hear about your experiences with marketplaces so please feel free to add a comment/post below :)

Great thread Richelle! I've used sellers on DHGate, Aliexpress and Alibaba. I've found them all hit and miss: Sometimes the products and customer service were good, sometimes they weren't.

In one instance, I bought around $2000 worth of stock from a seller on DH Gate and when it arrived, it wasn't as high quality as I was expecting. It wasn't poor enough to demand a refund, just not up to my own standards for products I was proud to sell to my friends and family (my rule of thumb I live by when selling products). In other cases, I've bought great items that I've re-sold for good profits.

I've also bought personal items from some of these sites.

Another one I would add is I've bought wholesale lots from eBay and marked up the prices by 500% and made a lot of sales!

I've never personally been ripped off by these sites because I do my due diligence and research the supplier as much as possible before I purchase from them, but I know a LOT of people who have been ripped off on these sites, so it pays to take Richelle's advice and pay with safe payment methods such as PayPal, Escrow and credit card.

I'll add my little bit here as well, especially with eBay.

Years ago, which feels like several life times ago now, we used to use to actually buy white goods, mostly fridges, and then flip them in news print advertising through local trader magazines. Televisions were another we used to do well with buying through eBay and selling offline.

So a site such as eBay can work both ways, it can be a good buying resource just as much as it can be a good selling resource.
