How to buy wholesale candy

Despite the fact that people trying to eat more heathily, that hasn't stop the growth of candy consumption.Where sales of things like organic eggs and bagged salad are on the rise, so are sales of confections, generating billions in revenue every year. So if you want to sell candy for profit, you've got the right idea!

Some main factors to consider when buying wholesale candy:

  • Consider the type of candy to buy and store — Is your locale or storage of choice going to be in dry or humid condition? It's good to account for candy's meltability factor where humidity creates very sticky candy and causes gummy candy to lose its shape.
  • Be aware of shipping heat sensitive candies — You should order and ship heat sensitive candy during cooler months and store them unopened in a dry, safe, and cool place. If you store your candy properly, they should last for a long time.
  • Anticipate candy season — Price for candy varies throughout the year and peak during festive seasons like halloween or valentine's. So stock up during off season and make sure to keep them cool and in good condition before you sell during a festive period.

Where to buy wholesale candy

Once you’ve narrowed down the type of candies you're looking to sell, you can look into these options to quickly find a wholesale distributor:

Search Online

Searching online on Google or Yahoo will give you plenty of results to choose from. Make a list of potential suppliers and go through them in your own time.

While this method is free, you shouldn't assume all suppliers listed there are legit. Some do pose as wholesale distributors with intent to trick people into giving them money. So you have to do the homework to weed out the fake ones. More on that later.

Ask your network

Ask your friends or people within your circle if they can connect you with a reliable wholesale candy distributor. Chances are, someone you know could point you to the right direction.

Obviously, there is also a chance you friends won't be able to help you, in which you need to use another method.

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

Finding legit suppliers that won’t scam you can be difficult, but we’ve created a simple 4-step verification process

Contact the supplier and verify their address

Never do business with a supplier without talking to a real live human being. Suppliers should always list their phone number on their home page. For added protection, Google their business address to make sure it’s a warehouse and not a home address.

Check your supplier’s reputation and track record

Look up how long a supplier’s been in business. Most legit suppliers have been around for 10 or more years. Additionally, call their previous customers to get honest feedback.

Purchase and inspect their products

Always order a sample product before making a bulk purchase. Inspect the supplier’s product quality, packaging, and shipping times.

Test their customer support

Call supplier’s early and often with difficult customer service questions. Your supplier’s support will directly affect your own support to your customers, so you want to make sure they have good service reps.
