How to buy wholesale candles

Did you know candles are used in 7 out of 10 U.S. households? Candles are now estimated at approximately $3.2 billion annually, and that's excluding sales of candle accessories! If you're a budding entrepreneur who wants to create a hot product, the candles business is a good choice to start.

  • Do some research on best selling candles — Wondering what type of candles are going to sell? Check the bestseller list on Amazon and eBay and you'll get plenty of ideas for the right candles to stock.
  • Consider seasonality — Approximately 35% of candle sales occur during the Christmas/Holiday season, so know when you need to stock candles and run promotions to get the best sales throughout the year.
  • Buy with bundles in mind — Bundling is a great way to increase basket size of every sale and improve your business margin. Stock up on candle accessories like candle trays and holders as they can make up a significant portion of your sales.

Where to buy wholesale candles

Once you have a good idea of the candles you want to sell, follow these steps to quickly find a wholesale distributor:

Ask a friend

Chances are at least one of your friends may have contacts you're looking for. First ask your friends or business contacts if they can connect you with a reliable wholesale candles distributor.

If your friends can't help, try asking online.

Go to online forums

There are online forums dedicated to wholesalers and business owners like wholesaleforum. Search existing threads to see if there was any information posted on wholesale candles supplier. Otherwise, you can create a new thread.

Take any recommendation online with a grain of salt. Not all of them are genuine as they are not vetted by any organization. If you don't want to spend time vetting wholesalers, there are people out there who have done it for you.

Supplier directories

Supplier directories, like SaleHoo, vet their suppliers. This means you won't need to worry about finding high-quality suppliers or getting scammed.

While there is a small fee ($67/year for SaleHoo), it's the best method for beginners. We even give you our market research tool, which shows you how often items sell and helps you find new products to add to your store!

Finding trusted suppliers

To find the best suppliers and avoid being scammed, take the following steps to vet them first:

Contact the supplier and verify their address

Look at the supplier’s homepage to get their contact info. Call them and Google their address to verify their legitimacy

Check your supplier’s reputation and track record

Look at sites like the Better Business Bureau to see how long the supplier’s been in business, and to see real reviews from real customers.

Inspect their products beforehand

Order samples to test their product’s quality, packaging, and shipping times. Don’t be afraid to order more than one, just in case.

Test their customer support

Call the supplier’s support number to see how good their support reps are. If they suck, keep looking as you need high-quality support.

Since 2005 SaleHoo has helped over 137,000 customers successfully start online businesses on eBay, Amazon and their own online stores.
