Just a quick note..Strawberrynet.com is not a True Wholesaler..it's a middle man.....I once contacted them inquiring about wholesaler prices and was given the story...Their wholesale price is what is on display on their site..I couldnt understand that other sellers had these products at even a lower price then a so called wholesaler....I did my homework and found a huge wholesaler in that industry and the prices were much lower then Strawberrynet.com and figured out they are purchasing from a wholesale like the one I found and were tagging on a profit. Because now I am able to purchase products from the wholesaler I found plus adding a profit for myself and still my prices are lower then Strawberrynet.com.
Do your homework like I did and you'll find a true wholesaler with the same products that Strawberrynet. com offers a lot cheaper!

I would never ask for someone to outright tell me who the supplier is. I have been looking for wholesale perfume/fragrances for the past 6 months to no avail. Not asking for a handout, but could you point me in the right direction, or atleat where you found this wholesaler, I.E. in a google search, salehoo etc.

All comments welcome!!

Aha! I should have known better. I was an ABO certified Optician and went to two trade shows. Last one was in Vegas this past September if anyone went. I didn't think that the perfume Ind. had trade shows. Thanks for sheding some light on the situation! :-)

I guess Salehoo gives out their name Because They will drop ship for you, but they are not True Wholesalers even with their prices pretty low. and you don't need an TAx ID ..with a true wholesaler you will need a Tax ID...so for a beginner their oK..but you wont be able to go against the big dogs on EBAY..because Ebay sellers prices are MUCH LOWER! Yes my suppliers are cheaper.
In fact my online store has the same products as STrawberrynet with lower prices and I do NOT claim to be a wholesaler:)

That's what my last post was about. To find a REAL Wholesaler..Attend a trade show:)

Then visit sites of Liquidation or Surplus companies on the net. Because a True Wholesaler isn't going to give you the best price to drop ship a single item. YOU need to buy in bulk! Most ebay's buy from Liquidation or Surplus to get that really low price.

I have to agree, the only way to truly find a good wholesaler is to visit a trade show. Dropshipping has become so comlplicated that the only people making money from it are the individuals that are selling items off thier own websites. Ebay sellers should not attempt to waste thier time with dropshipping.
