I have only been able to find one Supplier on Salehoo for Skateboards. When I contacted them, they stated they they currently are selling to physical stores only. I am confused because I though the whole point of Salehoo was to find Merchants who would drop ship??? If they don't drop ship and require me to have a storefront why are they listed. How can I find a Supplier who sells skateboards and parts who is okay with Online stores only?

I am interested in reply to this post. I had someone give me static a few days ago and told me if I didn't have a brick and mortar store that he could look up then he wasn't selling to me.


Thank you,

Hi Aaron,

Unfortunately you do have a misconception of the directory. It is not just a dropship directory, we list multiple avenues of supply to cater for all of our members, and of course not everyone dropships. We have wholesale, dropship and surplus suppliers to cater for members across the board. Now it is true that some wholesale suppliers will not deal with an online business, preferring to deal with bricks and mortar only, certainly not all of them, but some. These are usually brand suppliers trying to protect their brand from being devalued from online sales, especially eBay sales.

What I would suggest is sending your request to Link hidden: Login to view and the team there will do their best to find you some supplier leads that are not in our directory and they can try and verify them for you.

@michael

I hope this also gives you a better understanding also.

I had looked into the same thing a couple years ago.... From my experience you won't get anywhere with the skate companies, they're not just protecting they're product but skate shops as well, an important piece in the skater community
