Dropshipping returns aren’t always black and white. Sometimes there is a grey area. It can be difficult to handle dropshipping returns because certain products can’t be returned. It depends on the dropshipper, but sometimes things like perishable items (cigars, chocolate, ect), large objects that require special shipping, and things you wear like underwear and shoes can’t be returned. In these cases it’s important to know what to do so you’re not left footing the bill for someones return. … Read More →
So you’re looking to start a dropshipping business but not quite sure where to begin?
I was in your position a few years ago.
There are so many different choices and so many places to begin, but where is the right place for you to start? If you already have experience selling on Amazon or eBay then that is a huge advantage. You should be able to leverage your skills selling on those marketplaces into a dropshipping business. I learned a lot from this Wholesale2b Review, but I also learned a lot from trial and error.
If you have an ecommerce business or know how to run one then that is also a huge advantage. Many people run entire companies from ecommerce websites that use drop shipping.
If you don’t have experience with eBay, Amazon, or e commerce websites, that’s ok too! Everyone needs to start somewhere and the most important thing is always drive and hustle. If you are driven to succeed then there is a good chance that you will make it.
Getting started can be one of the most confusing parts of starting a dropshipping business. I’m not going to lie, there are a ton of websites telling you a million different way to get started, but if you want to do it fast and for free, then Wholesale2b is the best place to go. It’s free to sign up and check out their products. You don’t need to actually start paying them until you’re ready to sell, and even then it’s just a monthly fee (or yearly if you want to save a few bucks).
Other solutions like Worldwide Brands, Salehoo, and Doba don’t offer the same resources and quality that you will find with Wholesale2b, and they don’t offer a chance to view product for free.
What are you going to sell?
If you already have a store then this is a little easier. Wholesale2b breaks their products down into categories that can be easily searched.
If you’re starting from scratch then it’s going to take a little more time. Check out what’s popular (requires paid account). If you want to stick with the free account during your search then it may take a little longer, but you will definitely find something that will make you money.
Find a product with a high margin and then check it out on on Amazon or eBay. Sometimes Wholesale2b’s price data isn’t 100% up to date with the current prices on those services. It’s always best to see how much an item is actually selling for in live auctions.
Once you find a few products that look like they will sell well, you’re ready to get started.
Where are you going to sell?
Do you want to sell on eBay, Amazon, or your own store? If you don’t already have something setup then Wholesale2b can help. They offer different plans depending on what you’re looking to do. If you want to sell on Amazon or eBay there are plans specifically for getting started on those services. If you have your own website then you may just want to use the datafeed plan.
It’s all about marketing
Once you’re ready to start selling, make sure you keep your listings on point and prices competitive. Wholesale2b offers over 250 eBay templates to help your listing stand out. Try to be creative with your ad listings so you don’t get lost in the crowd. The downfall of many online retailers is that they don’t know how to make their product stand out from the competition and they get lost in the noise.
