I've been searching on here for a supplier that has up to date books, such as bestsellers. I like to sell books in series such as the Hunger Games, Beautiful Creatures....Nora Roberts....So far I have not had any luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Not sure if these guys would suit your requirements, but check them out Link hidden: Login to view

Just bare in mind that they are not a verified SaleHoo supplier and I have no personal experience with them that I can use to recommend them with at all. so do your research on them before considering doing any business with them is what I would suggest..

Thank You. I've looked at them before also. I'm with you on this, I have no idea if they can be trusted. Any ideas on where I can do some research on this site?

Thanks

I have significant experience in the books and media niche, and can assure you that you are going to be hard pressed to find any suppliers of current, up to date bestsellers who dropship. Older books will be available generally, but not at great margins -- the standard wholesale book rate is 55% of cover price, and as you might notice most retailers sell for just barely over this. Older books, or ones just off the NYT list can be found where they were dumped to overstock operations, who in turn sell them to dropship companies and the like, but even then margins will be slim.

Be very wary of any company offering to sell you something like Chasing Fire at a price on which you can turn a profit; the incentive to dropship an in-demand item just isn't there when they can sell it themselves for whatever you can, and the wholesale price is the same whether you're buying one pallet or ten thousand pallets of the book from the publisher.
