Australia is experiencing significant growth in the ecommerce space, consistent with trends around the world.
In 2019, more than 80% of people in Australia are shopping online and ecommerce revenue is expected to grow 15.1%.
Australia’s ecommerce market is predicted to hit $35.2 billion by 2023.
And Amazon Australia is the company’s fastest growing marketplace, relative to its size, increasing its revenue 1500% in 2018.

There are more people in Australia spending more money online every year. You have a unique opportunity to take a slice of that multi billion-dollar market at just the right time.

You can make great money by buying things for a low price,
and then re-selling them on websites like eBay or Amazon.
Imagine if you could sell just TEN products like this per week.
That would be $780 in profit, or just over $40,000 per year.
Successful eBay and Amazon sellers make money by buying from wholesale suppliers at wholesale prices, and then selling online at retail prices.
Look at the difference between wholesale supplier prices and retail prices.

You need to find a wholesale vendor to sell you the goods at wholesale prices.
But it isn't as easy as you might think...
You could try searching on Google
But most of the best suppliers don't even show up in Google. They're too busy being suppliers, rather than marketers.
But you WILL find lots of scammers
Unfortunately it's very easy and lucrative to be a fake wholesaler, so there are a LOT of them. These guys work hard to LOOK legitimate, so you often can't tell the difference until they run away with your money.
And the prices you find... aren't actually cheaper
When you just search in Google you'll find suppliers with so-called "wholesale prices" that are actually higher than the prices you find on eBay. So how are these eBay sellers making a profit? They must have an even BETTER supplier.... but who?
It can take you weeks to find an acceptable supplier
Think about how much time you've spent looking for suppliers already. The fact is that finding a good supplier can take weeks, with lots of dead ends and frustration. Think about how much money you're NOT making while you're doing this. Depressing, isn't it?
Finding wholesale goods is only half of the equation. It's no good buying low-cost
items if nobody wants to buy them off you. Here's what you SHOULDN'T sell...
Wouldn't it be nice if someone could just give you a list of all the best suppliers, so you could save time and avoid all that risk?
And wouldn't it be nice if there was a special tool that would tell you ahead of time whether a product would be a hot seller, so you never end up losing money on a "dud"?
A membership with SaleHoo makes it MUCH easier to make money selling online. Uncover profitable products to sell in our Market Research Labs, and connect with over 8000 verified legitimate suppliers in our Wholesale Directory. Easy!
Here's what you get when you join SaleHoo...
1.6 million wholesale products from 8000+ genuine wholesale suppliers,
all with genuine wholesale prices.

Our easy-to-search directory makes it super-simple to find the type of
product and supplier you need.
Because we know exactly where to find the best suppliers, you get the inside scoop on
thousands of top-quality suppliers you probably wouldn't find on your own.
Find the "too busy for marketing" hidden gems
A lot of the best suppliers can be hard to find because they're too busy to put effort into promoting themselves. Luckily we know where to look, so you get great deals that most other sellers will miss out on.
Get exclusive deals for SaleHoo members
Many of our suppliers actually create special offers for SaleHoo members, so you can get prices and quantities that aren't available to most other sellers.
If you don't have any start-up money to purchase products in bulk, dropshipping is perfect for you. We have over 1000 suppliers who will dropship for you. It's the ultimate no-risk
way to get started.
Want to find a local supplier? Want to find one who will ship internationally to you? We've got suppliers all around the world to suit your exact needs.
Stuck on what to sell? Let us crunch the numbers for you in our Market Research Lab. We'll find products with high sales and low competition, so you can earn maximum profits!

I joined SaleHoo approximately 6 weeks ago, and already I have used products gained through SaleHoo for drop shipping in Australia. Read more
The products I've sold include cool fire extinguisher and hydrant lighters and LED light ear cleaners, As well as MP4 and MP3 players. I am very happy with SaleHoo as it has not only offered me the chance to find the products I am looking for, but it has given me the security to purchase with the great reviews by other members. The forum is a great place to get advise or just flick through and read to gain valuable information for my own benefit.
The website is clear and easy to navigate with supplier information readily available. I have also found products at fantastically reduced prices that have made me realise I can buy wholesale not just dropship, therefore making my profits higher! I have told so many people of my exciting find joining SaleHoo, though I must be honest I don't tell the people that would sell like me... Its my secret weapon!!

I was aware of eBay's existence for a long time, but never thought of it as a place to make money, just as somewhere to find things to buy. Read more
But one day I decided to give eBay selling a shot, and I listed my first auction: my entire Michael Jackson CD collection. To my surprise, a woman from Greece bought them, and the surprise success gave me the eBay bug – I wanted to sell more!
Within weeks, I found SaleHoo and decided to join because I felt it looked like a professional and warm place, where people really wanted to help each other. I hoped to benefit by getting some tips from pro sellers that would help steer me in the right direction and avoid potential blunders. I also needed to learn the basics of eBay selling: How to find the right price, the right product to sell, and the techniques to sell it successfully.
What do you like most about SaleHoo?
I found SaleHoo's forum immensely valuable: People explained everything I needed to know and that made me change his strategies. During the time I have been a member, I have received advice on a wide range of questions, from the difference between supplier types, to where to find video game suppliers and how to use eBay's Selling Manager Pro. I like the fact that I know that people will answer my questions always.
With SaleHoo's help, me and my wife are now Top-Rated Sellers, with our own eBay store stocking Judaica and Holy Land items. SaleHoo's tips, feedback and personal emails have been critical in getting me where I am today.

I am a 17 yr old high school student from a small rural town in New Zealand and I have been successfully using SaleHoo for over a year. Read more
After trying for several months to find reliable wholesalers with quality products I stumbled across Salehoo and all my questions were answered.
After just my first month using wholesalers recommended by Salehoo, along with great tips from the Salehoo forum I was turning 300-400% profits on every item I sold! Since then I have diversified my inventory and now have a steady business making good money each week, doing nothing more than sitting at my computer and making the occasional trip to the post office.
You truly could not make a better investment with anything else, whether you are starting out in the importing game, or a seasoned player, SaleHoo is the number one resource for all those people who are looking to get ahead. If a kid from down under can make it work then so can you!
— Tom Ainge-Roy, NZ
I always wanted to get a legitimate source for real wholesalers to get it going with my eBay business. I must tell you if you are still buying from those so called "wholesalers", you must not be profiting as much as you should. Read more
At first I was skeptical to buy the wholesalers list provided by SaleHoo.com as I had been scammed several times before, but I must tell you that this is the best investment I have ever made.
Since getting the wholesalers list I have been getting premium laptops, digital cameras, mp3/mp4 players and other consumer electronics items below wholesale prices. My profits skyrocketed and now I make more than 50% profit on every sale. Believe me guys this website has all the information and resources you have always wanted, so if you care about your eBay business or your Internet store just grab this amazing wholesalers and drop shippers list now. Thanks for taking time to listen to my views and I wish you best of luck for your future.
When I started my membership with SaleHoo, I wanted to find some great quality inexpensive jewelry to sell. I'm now a power seller and things are just going great. Read more
I'm a mum who works from home, so I can still care for my two boys — Max 3yrs and Freddie 2yrs. So thank you SaleHoo for your support and great wholesale jewelry shops you have put in contact with. Best wishes!

When I first started my online business, I wasn't sure where I wanted it to go, and what I did was sign up with SaleHoo. Everything was quite easy to follow. Read more
Basically it has helped me from the get-go. They give you some hot tips, some tricks, supplier suggestions, and one of the things that was very important for me was that I didn't know the difference between a drop shipper and a wholesaler. Whats right for me basically.
All I can say is that I have been extremely happy with SaleHoo, and I would recommend it to anybody. I feel that the online free resources alone are very helpful, but you can also go and discuss it with other members.
You can actually give your opinion on suppliers that you have used or that you do not use, or if your not sure what type of product you want, they will help you. Each time also that I have recieved a newsletter, its been helpful. I've been reading it each time, printing it off, and re-reading it over and over again to help my business get stronger and stronger, and actually my sales have increased as well. I owe it all to my hard work and to SaleHoo as well, so thank you very much.

As I am new to internet buying and selling I found your site to be very informative and easy to use and navigate.Read more
It is full of bonus products to download for subscribers and I am now looking forward to working from home and generating an extra income for our household.

A couple of months ago I began selling items around my house on ebay. When I ran out of items I began surfing the web looking for different ways to make money and finding site after site advertising everything from drop shipping to club memberships promising riches, cookie cutter websites....you name it, I read about it.Read more
When I ran across an ad for Salehoo it interested me because it appeared to be a place where I could do a lot of research without having to bounce from site to site and I must say, I am very pleased with my decision. If your like me and you don't really know what route you really want to take, a couple of hours of reading on the forums and navigating the site will have your head spinning with so many different avenues and after a few weeks I finally narrowed it down to what I was interested in and here I am. I contacted a supplier that I found on Salehoo and after reading all of the reviews about the company and asking about them on the forums I decided that I wanted to do business with them. I just received my first pallet of merchandise and have unpacked it and can't wait to get my items out into the market place.
If your looking for someone to point you to the goose that laid the golden egg, well, just remember where that saying came from....a fairy tale and that's most likely what your gonna get but on the other hand, good information in itself is worth it's weight in gold and there's a difference between taking a gamble and taking a risk. Will my personal venture be a success? Well, there's always risk when starting something new but from the information I have been able to obtain from Salehoo, I feel that I am making an intelligent, educated risk concerning my venture as opposed to a gamble which is what most of the money making sites out there are trying to convince you to do so wish me luck!
...and a big Texas thanks to Salehoo and the friends that I have made in the Salehoo community
— Eric Harris, US
Hi I'm Carolyn. My sister and I joined SaleHoo a year or so into our joint eBay selling venture when our original suppliers decided to go in other directions and stopped offering the products we needed. We are delighted with SaleHoo, as it has provided us with reputable, dependable companies offering quality merchandise and services. Read more
As a result, our company Bootsies-Boutique.com is going from strength to strength!
SaleHoo gave us rated lists of wholesale companies and drop shippers. They were fabulous and have become mainstays of our business and for others to whom we make recommendations.
I worked in the non-profit area for 20 years, but gave it up to gain more flexibility to care for family living in several places. In 2007, I began selling on eBay with my sister Bootsie. We first stepped into eBay selling things from around our home, but it wasn't long before we found a successful niche in Plus Size Ladies clothing. From there, our store began to take shape by selling items reflective of Bootsie's personality: Classy, frugal, creative and charismatic!
At present we are Bronze Power Sellers and are very pleased with the way their business is growing. Of course, selling on eBay is not without its challenges, and we have had to overcome the hurdles of eBay's fees, and finding trustworthy suppliers.
Despite this, the people are what makes selling on eBay enjoyable. Building relationships with both customers and suppliers is one of the most important factors in the success of our business.
Try to do the best you can for a sale, one listing and customer at a time… There will be highs and lows, check your stats, but don't dwell on the negative issues. Learn from them, alter where needed and keep going!
We have found SaleHoo's email newsletter and regular blog updates very valuable for solving problems, they are a great resource for ideas, vendors and trends!!
We are now focusing on the marketing of Bootsies Boutique, and have a few tricks up our sleeves for branding our company with a professional presence.
Bootsies-Boutique.com is run by a family with big hearts, and their proceeds go to helping out their brother and to various charities. Generously, they are offering SaleHoo readers a 10% discount on any purchase from their store! Email them with the secret word 'SaleHoo' before you make a purchase.
I worked as a licensed Veterinary Technician for the past 18 years, but have always harbored a secret dream to become self-employed. A couple of years ago I researched the viability of starting an eBay business and decided it was worth a try. Read more
I soon realized that I needed to build up a base of suppliers who were honest and reliable if I was to make my business a success, so 6 months after opening shop I decided to join SaleHoo.
I was Immediately impressed by how much work SaleHoo had put into screening suppliers, and really liked the accessibility of the staff. Before long, I located some excellent suppliers with good prices and service, and I now order from them on a regular basis.
Initially I had a terrible time finding honest and reliable suppliers who had reasonable prices and timely shipping. I found myself in the unenviable position of being ripped off several times by dishonest people who promised fantastic products but either didn't deliver on those promises, just took my money and ran, or shipped out inferior goods.
This is what's so great about SaleHoo; there are a vast number of suppliers and most of them have been well screened so the majority of the guess work is eliminated for you as a seller looking to purchase items for your store."
Nancy also finds the SaleHoo forum invaluable for picking up useful information and as place to meet and talk to people trying to achieve similar goals.
Before joining SaleHoo, I had only sold a few items on eBay. Today, I'm the owner of The Fashion Den which you can check out here: http://stores.ebay.com/The-Fashion-Den

I'm coming up on one year with SaleHoo. It was a great find over the Internet while trying to learn the ins and outs of wholesale buying. Read more
I liked what SaleHoo had to offer and their terms so I signed up. And glad I did. SaleHoo has been a huge source of wholesale companies and informative articles relating to things I need to grow my business. I especially appreciate the emails letting me know of upcoming events or newly posted articles.
My business is home-based, allowing me to work and take care of my family. As long as the power doesn't go out or the Internet go down, I'm here to take care of my buyers.
I selected eBay because it's one of the biggest and the buying traffic is basically guaranteed. As an experienced seller on eBay I feel this forum inspires confidence in both buyers and sellers to take a chance on one another with the end results almost always being happy buyers and great transactions. Currently I sell in Canada and the United States.
Initially the biggest obstacle was me and having confidence in my abilities. My background has never been in sales. My strength was more in creating the presentation, organizing, working with numbers.
The funny thing is I never dreamed I'd be an online entrepreneur. I started out on eBay over two years ago selling things we didn't use around the house any more. And I got hooked. Once everything was sold, if I wanted to continue selling then I was going to have to become a legitimate business and purchase product to sell.
Without that early eBay experience to build confidence and setup procedures for listings, shipping, and buyer correspondence I never would have started my business. It may be small right now but in just under a year it's already expanded with plenty of room for growth. Now and again I like to daydream about all the things I'll do with my business when the bottom line allows . . . or when we win a lottery!
Some might consider it a cliché but I strongly recommend that new sellers find a product they truly enjoy working with. Once the routine of work sets in you're going to be dealing with products and prep work over and over. You'll need to buckle down to some long hours when new inventory comes in and needs to be processed and made ready for sale. Plus, you'll also need to organize your time to keep up with bookkeeping and data analysis to project growth or losses and adjust inventory reorders accordingly.
If you love what you're doing then those long hours just seem to fly by and the problem becomes not getting the work done but learning to set work aside for awhile and enjoy some personal time with family or friends.
Sales mean buyers like my watches; their feedback not only leaves me content with a smile on my face but also tells other buyers that TopCat2x2 offers a quality product and top-notch service. It's rare for one of my watches to have a problem. However, should the occasion arise, I want buyers to know that I'll do everything I can to make it right.
In spite of the sales and work I enjoy, the underlying goal has always been to someday reach the point where the business can support itself and provide extra income for the family. I've found my niche. Now it's up to me to make it work the way I want.

Hi, my name is Pedro Alberto Flores. I am from Mexico. Without SaleHoo I would run a lot of risks because there are a lot of scammers in China.Read more
So with other peoples testimonials in SaleHoo and the SaleHoo staff reviews I have bought several items from China without any risk.
So I think the money I have paid to SaleHoo for the service... I have it back already because I haven't run any risks in my business.
So I really appreciate SaleHoo. And I really recommend it to other people.
I would like SaleHoo to have more advice for Latin American importers. But I think it is worth it anyway. Really really worth it.
— Pedro Alberto Flores, MX
I signed on to Salehoo with some scepticism and doubt that here is another sales pitch that just sucks me in and that's that. Read more
But to my surprise, this program is the best! After signing on, I searched for the products I was interested in, connected with dropshippers and wholesalers and was in business in no time.
Also the referrals and references are from Salehoo members, so you know that there is no bias.
My success is with Military and Survival gear and one of the products that I am excited about is a 1200 watt gas generator that I found at AHI Distribution. It is an inexpensive item that can be very handy in an emergency situation.
— Joseph Cherry, US
Finding SaleHoo was a moment of serendipity for me. The first time I found SaleHoo online, I had absolutely no intention of importing, however something told me to add it to my favorites folder. Read more
Six months later, I woke up and decided to do something different. I wanted to make more money, and I had the idea of emergency survival packs, which were something missing in my country. I remembered SaleHoo, and bingo I found the perfect wholesaler.
What I liked about SaleHoo was the unbiased information on all their wholesalers, also if you can't find the product you want, you can email SaleHoo. They found me a list of suppliers not on their website. They were prompt and efficent at getting back to me. I really like the letters that they email, they are honest and I am delighted that I have found them.
— Jenny Georgeson, NZ
I found out about SaleHoo I think just by doing some searches. And while I was online, one of the things that struck me is that I think I first found a forum, and it was, someone on SaleHoo was answering a question that someone had asked and I thought wow, actually people are really interacting and really helping and that kinda first drew me in. Read more
So I signed for the membership, and started looking around and one of the things I noticed was that they explained that this is something that you're not necessarily going to strike rich at right away, that it's going to take some time.
You're gonna have to spend a little bit of work really looking for some suppliers but they are there.
And I have to say that's just might have been my case. I've been working with SaleHoo here for a couple of weeks and officially we have found three suppliers so far, that I've been able to sell a few products online and now I've actually paid for my membership! It's a small goal but exciting nonetheless.
And what's really cool is that I've also begun developing relationships with one of the suppliers in particular, and they've really been helping me to get into Amazon, which was a new experience for me too.
And so it's been great. What I really like about it though, is the fact that everything is all in one place. You do have all those distributors and suppliers there. I can certainly go online and just start Googling for distributors and suppliers but I like that they are right there on SaleHoo.
If I find one I like or am interested in, odds are there are some reviews already on that particular supplier.
I also like that I can post something, like a question and get help from some of the members of SaleHoo and I get great, quick responses that way as well.
You know whatever the goal is, for me it's trying to really connect with at least five suppliers each week and I found that if I take the time to do that, I start finding little things here and there, and so it just takes a little effort but it's been great.
I've really been happy so far with the results. I'm really excited to see how the next one, two, three months go, and how the momentum's gonna build. But so far it's been really fantastic. And the support's been great!

You've got two choices: You could get a helping hand from people who have
been doing this a long time (us!), or you could try going it alone...
Going it alone means...
You could get scammed by fake suppliers and lose your money
You could receive broken or poor quality goods from a bad supplier, and lose money.
Your dropshipper might not deliver the goods and causes irreparable damage your reputation (and you lose the sale)
You could buy stock that doesn't sell well, so you lose money.
You could spend too long finding a supplier and a product, and you miss out on weeks or months of potential income.
If you'd rather skip all these "life lessons" and get straight to the good stuff, grab
your SaleHoo membership and let the experts help you out. It just makes sense.
