Not everyone will make millions selling shoes online, but there is definitely a market here. The global footwear industry makes more than $52 billion every year, and consumers in the US alone are spending over $29 billion on shoes each year. So why not get a piece of that pie?
Some main factors to consider when buying wholesale shoes:
Most likely you'll need to buy from a wholesaler in order to make any decent profit. Here are a few ways to get started:
— You can easily find hundreds or even thousands of wholesalers for all kinds of shoes. It's best if you've done the research beforehand and narrow down the type of shoes you're going to sell so you won't get drowned in the sea of choices.
Searching on Google is free, but it leaves you to the wolves. You have to figure out the real wholesalers from the fake ones. Depending on how good you are at researching, this can take a significant portion of your time.
— If you're looking for a wholesaler for a specific product or brand, try checking the product label to find the distributor, or contacting the manufacturer directly. Chances are, they’ll happily direct you to their official distributor they do business with.
For certain brands, they may only look for customers who have a reputation of selling or who is capable of selling large quantities of stock. So be prepared in case you need to prove yourself.
— 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!
Weeding out the scams from the trusted suppliers is simple a matter of following these steps:
— Honest suppliers will display their contact details on their home page. Call them to verify that a real person answers, and Google their address to see if it’s a real warehouse.
— Look up how long your supplier’s been in business. Great suppliers will have a 10+ year track record. Additionally, call up their current or past customers to ask about them.
— Choosing a supplier without checking their product and packaging quality first is asking for trouble. Test their products roughly to see how well they hold up.
— Your supplier is the heart of your business. If you choose poorly, that will affect everything from your shipping times to your customer service. Call them and make sure they deliver, every time.
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 295 vetted wholesale shoes suppliers and choose the best one for your needs. You can get started with them right away!
