Hello!
Almost two days I'm trying to find suppliers with normal prices for wholesalers and nothing even close.. Experienced eBay or Amazon sellers knows that to make minimal profit you have to get the item for $50 if item can be sold for $80.. Whatever retail price!!! If its more you not gonna make any profit... The suppliers here giving you good prices to buy as a regular buyer, but not as professional retailer.. Except that you have to spend your time to fill up their retailer applications and pay them some fee for seeing their wholesale prices!!!! Looks like its just time wasting, so far its may experience or may be I'm missing something?

Hi Alexander and welcome to the forum,

Two things to clarify, are you looking at wholesalers or dropshippers? Also, what volumes have you been discussing purchasing with the suppliers?

Thank you for your fast replay! I'm not biggest fan of Drop shipping because for me its didn't work (Buyers doesn't like wait so long, they canceling and leaving negatives whatever you telling them) I tried to get 200 pc flash drives or same amount e-cigarettes the price was around $15.. If you have good account on ebay you may sell it for $18-20.. So eBay & paypal fee plus shipping cost to buyer.. So i can dream about the profit..

What was the supplier's name, we'll at least have a talk with them and see what the best deal is that they can do based on 200 units for you.

Cheers

Have you considered surplus suppliers?

You mean liquidation auctions? Yes, but its kind the same, except that you have to wait couple days till auction ends and the stuff there mostly refurbished or floor samples..

No, not auctions, I mean liquidation suppliers like VIA Trading, H&J Closeouts, Topper International. These are three surplus suppliers that are verified in our directory. You can purchase stock loads directly from them, no auctions. Of course with that market, stock can change quickly, but well worth checking to see if they have any loads available that might interest you.

With surplus, you can purchase a variety of options. Customer returns, shelf pulls, even master cased stock some times. If you speak to the liquidator and tell them what you are most interested in, then they can advise on stock they currently have, as well as stock due in that might interest you.
