The global eyewear market was valued at $90 Billion USD in 2015 and is expected to reach $170 Billion by 2026. So if you want to start an online store, you’ve picked a good niche.
The first thing you need to do is decide what kinds of sunglasses you’re going to sell. Figure out what you like - designer sunglasses, sports sunglasses, or kids sunglasses, for example.
Not sure what to pick? Look out for trends. Ask yourself:
You buy wholesale sunglasses from, well, wholesalers! But where do you find these wholesalers? You have a few options:
— The first place you'd typically look for anything. Just type "buy wholesale sunglasses" and you'll find thousands of results.
While this method is free, it leaves you to the wolves. You have to figure out who the real wholesalers are and try to avoid scams. It’s time-consuming and frustrating.
— You can use online marketplaces like eBay, Alibaba or Aliexpress to buy wholesale sunglasses. They are huge, so you shouldn't have any difficulty finding a pair you like.
However, there is a steep learning curve to these platforms and a massive communication barrier. Many of the suppliers are from Asia, so they don’t speak the best English.
— 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 that won’t scam you can be tricky, but we’ve dealt with so many that we’ve boiled it down to a few key steps:
— Legit wholesale suppliers will list their contact information and address on their site, so make sure they are real contacts who you can talk to.
— Find out how many years they have been in operation. If possible, speak with some of their existing clients to find out if they are reliable.
— Never use a supplier without receiving a sample product first. Check the packaging, product quality, and care of handling. Drive out to the manufacturing site if possible.
— Your supplier is your partner; Ask them questions early and often to see how quickly they respond. If they aren’t fast or don’t give high-quality answers, you may need to find someone else.
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 129 vetted wholesale sunglasses 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!
