If you're looking to buy wholesale craft supplies to resell for profit, we have some tips for you:
Once you have done your homework understanding the specific kinds of craft supplies you're looking to buy with your budget, you can look into these options as starting point:
— China-based suppliers are often known to have large ranges of stock and low prices. A quick google search or a visit to Aliexpress can find you plenty of suppliers to choose from.
Unfortunately, most chinese suppliers don't speak the best english. If you have a significant communication barrier dealing with these suppliers, find some help or you may have to look else where.
This is one of the cheaper options and you can get quite a few suppliers info. However, you do need to spend some time to research your product properly.
— Supplier directories, like SaleHoo, vet their suppliers. This means you won't need to worry about finding high-quality craft supplies 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!
We’ve dealt with tens of thousands of suppliers. As such, we’ve created a simple 4-step process to vet suppliers before you partner with them:
— Every good wholesaler will list their business address and phone number. Call them to make sure a real person answers, and Google their address to make sure a real business pops up.
— Try to avoid dealing with supplier’s who haven’t been around for at least 10 years. While these baby suppliers might be good, they haven’t been in the game long enough to prove themselves.
— It’s always a good idea to buy samples from a supplier before committing to them. Samples will show you the product quality, their care in packaging, and the speed of their shipments.
— Because your supplier’s customer service will directly affect your own customer service to your customers, be sure to call them early and often with questions. If they have poor support, consider choosing another supplier.
We research various marketplaces to provide you insider information about product's sell rate — how likely is the product going to sell, so you don’t have to second guess.
Contact one of our 74 vetted wholesale craft suppliers and choose the best one for your needs. You can get started with them right away!
Once you have a great product and a great supplier, it's time to cash in. Upload your product listings and take your chunk of that $100 billion market share!
