Finding a drop shipper for Wholesale Products to Sell



When looking for good quality and trusted wholesale product resource most people are looking for a wholesale drop shipper. Using a drop shipper is a very popular form of product resourcing because you only pay for the items you sell.

This is how it usually works; you find a supplier that will drop ship to your customers and set up an account. Each supplier has a different way of setting your account. The best way is to try and set it up on credit. Most wholesale product resources will still like to set up an account and just pay for the items you sell. After you have set up the account you need to get photos and product descriptions for the items you are going to sell.

If you have a pay-as-you-go account, you receive the payment for the product you have sold, you will then log into your supplier and go through the checkout to pay for it. You will be entering the buyer’s name and details where the product is to be shipped. The supplier will then package up your sold product post it to your account and ship it.

Members are able to contact SaleHoo staff and chat with them online about any issues they might have, and if SaleHoo doesn’t have a supplier for a certain product we will find one when a member makes a request.
