Dropshipping can be a highly lucrative and relatively inexpensive way to start and operate an eCommerce business. It is no wonder that online entrepreneurs, especially those who do not have much or any start-up capital, are increasingly turning to this business model. While not every business is cut out for it, the many benefits of this method definitely make it worth at least considering and learning more about.

Having said that, the dropshipping model — as with any other business model — presents its own barriers to entry. Anyone wishing to start their own dropshipping business must get past these hardships if they want to start, let alone succeed. Here is some information on how to accomplish one of the most significant tasks in this process: finding your dropshipping suppliers.

 

What are Dropshipping Suppliers, Wholesalers, and Manufacturers?

Before we begin, it may be helpful to know just who exactly we are talking about when we discuss dropshipping suppliers. You may have already looked for information from other resources and noticed that they use a few different terms to describe the companies involved in dropshipping, such as “supplier,” “wholesaler,” and “manufacturer.” These terms are, indeed, different from each other. Just so we can be on the same page, we will describe the distinctions below:

  • A dropshipping supplier, or simply “supplier” in this context, is any business (or even a lone entrepreneur) that provides dropshipping services for other businesses. That service entails fulfilling orders and sending products to the other businesses’ customers on behalf of said businesses. In addition to packaging and shipping, suppliers may also take care of a few other aspects of the supply chain for their retail partners, such as inventory storage.
  • A wholesaler is anyone who resells products to merchants. They acquire their inventory from the products’ manufacturer, and they typically purchase products in bulk so they can offer it to suppliers at a discount. This type of business is essentially a middleman between the businesses that actually create the items and the businesses that sell them to the buying public.
  • As you might expect, the manufacturer is simply the business responsible for actually making the products. A manufacturer can be a massive operation with multiple production factories around the world. However, a manufacturer can also simply be one person with the time and resources to make, for example, stuffed dolls of their own design.

While all three of these terms have their own unique definitions, these companies are not limited to fitting into only one of these labels. Manufacturers and wholesalers can also be dropshipping suppliers if they provide that service in addition to their other duties. In fact, some businesses with extensive resources are all three types at once.

For the sake of clarity, when we use these designations throughout the article, we are using them as they are defined here and not as combinations (unless otherwise specified).

 

How Can I Identify That a Dropshipping Supplier is Wrong for Me?

The challenge you will face may not necessarily be finding a dropshipping supplier at all. After all, you can find thousands of companies out there that claim to provide these services. Instead, the challenge can sometimes be finding a dropshipping supplier that is ideal for your business.

You need to be careful when choosing which suppliers will have the privilege to work with you. Choosing the wrong one can stall your orders and upset your customers, and you want to make sure that everything goes smoothly. To know whether to consider or avoid a potential partner, look for these signs:

Negative Reviews

No one in business will ever tell you that they are anything less than great at their job, which is why reading reviews can be so valuable to you in your search for dropshipping suppliers. This does not include the reviews you may find on the company’s official homepages, which will always be glowing. Looking at independent websites will prove more helpful. There, retailers are free to provide honest critiques of their supply partners, complete with all their pros and cons.

If one company’s reviews contain more scary stories than praise, you can be confident that you would have an awful experience with them. With that said, no business is perfect, and you should not expect to find one that has only ever received acclaim. Instead, assess both the strengths and weaknesses of a given supplier, determine whether those strengths outweigh those weaknesses, and consider whether they complement the strengths and weaknesses of your own business.

Poor-Quality Products

Something you must accept about the dropshipping model before adopting it is that you would not be in control of various aspects of your business. However, you do have the power to choose your supplier, so select one that can consistently provide your store with high-quality merchandise. We should not have to explain that customers tend to prefer well-made products that function as advertised over cheap items that fall apart.

What we should explain is that you may not be able to know the quality of your supplier’s products without seeing them for yourself. If they do not offer you any samples, you can investigate for yourself by ordering something from them, perhaps through another company they supply. Once you receive the item, ask yourself: if I were my customer and wanted this product badly enough to order it, would this satisfy me?

Signs of Being a Scam

Choosing a dropshipping supplier can be difficult enough when some of your options suffer from qualities that are less than ideal. It gets even more difficult when other potential suppliers are not even what they claim to be. An unfortunate number of people on the internet use this premise of providing dropshipping services as a cover for scams. Inexperienced eCommerce business owners are easy prey for them because they often do not know better.

You can fight back by knowing better. One major red flag for spotting an illegitimate supplier is if they do not provide much contact information on their site. Another is if they charge a monthly fee on their partners just for working with them, though quite a few legitimate suppliers do this as well. Perhaps the best way to find out is by researching them online and learning more from independent sources. If you do not want to be scammed, you must be diligent and cautious in your search.

 

What are Some Methods for Finding Dropshipping Suppliers?

The tips from the previous section show you how to avoid the suppliers that may not be right for your business — or may not even be dropshipping suppliers at all. With that said, you can certainly find plenty of legitimate companies out there that can meet your needs and match your preferences. Like with any task in eCommerce, you just need the right tools to help you. Here are some tried-and-true methods for finding dropshipping suppliers you can trust.

Subscribe to an Aggregator

Some business owners simply do not have enough time to assess their options, or employees with enough time to take care of that for them. However, certain companies have dedicated themselves to handle this responsibility and provide listings of legitimate suppliers for eCommerce businesses to consider. If you cannot delegate time to deep research, you can use these “aggregators” as your go-to resource for discovering and learning more about dropshipping suppliers in your industry.

The most important duty these aggregators fulfill is carefully screening anyone online who claims to be a dropshipping supplier. If they do not meet their standards of legitimacy, they are denied recognition. If they do, the aggregator includes them in their directory, and the aggregator’s subscribers can learn more information — including contact information — about them. This method may not yield as much as a Google search, but it does weed out the scammers and introduce you to great options.

Reach Out to Manufacturers

Your big idea for your business may revolve around selling specific types of products — perhaps merchandise from a single popular brand, or items from a particular niche. Not every supplier will be able to provide the products you want for your store. You then have to resolve the question: how can I identify which ones can fulfill my needs for my inventory? You could try reaching out to every supplier you come across in your search. But why not go straight to the source instead?

It can be much easier to learn and track the manufacturers of the products you wish to sell. All you need is the company’s name, which you can find on the packaging for their items, and their contact information, which you can swiftly locate by searching up their name online. Once you reach them, you can ask them which suppliers, wholesalers, and other distributors purchase their products. They will likely be happy to give you a list, which means you do not have to lose time making your own.

Follow the Competition

First, a reminder: every company engaged in dropshipping, by definition, has their own supplier. Next, a hint: your competitors may be engaged in dropshipping themselves, and they therefore may have already conducted their own exhaustive search for their business partner. Then, an insight: most suppliers do not create exclusive contracts, but instead give multiple companies access to their selection of products. Finally, a suggestion: try to find out who’s supplying your competitors.

An easy way to do this is by ordering a product from your competitor. After it arrives — and after you evaluate the quality of the item, as we recommended earlier — you may be able to trace the return address on the packaging to the supplier who shipped it. We should note that while the supplier may be good enough for your business rival, you cannot be sure that they are well-suited for your specific interests (nor that your competitor was thorough in their search). Learn more about them before making any agreements.

 

Why Work with Multiple Dropshipping Suppliers?

Once you have found one dropshipping supplier that meets all the criteria you set for your options, you may believe that the search is over. However, it does not need to end with just one partner. You could hypothetically have as many partners as you want, as long as you have space in your online store’s inventory for products from all of them. Here are some of the advantages to having multiple suppliers for your dropshipping business:

Diversity in Your Inventory

Remember how we said that you could use the same supplier as your competitors? There is a caveat to that: you would be competing with these other companies while selling the same products. You would be unable to attract customers by claiming you have a unique inventory, and you would then need to find other ways to stand out from your industry rivals.

Luckily, there are multiple methods for overcoming this obstacle, and one of them is offering products from multiple suppliers. Some of these companies offer different items than others, even if they serve the same industries or work with the same brands. By working with more than one supplier, you can offer their more unique products and offer more than your competitors. Your customers will definitely appreciate it. As the old saying goes, “Variety is the spice of life.”

Multiple Chances at Success

As with any relationship, the partnerships you make in business may evolve over time. Some suppliers that seem like a good match for your enterprise at first sight may grow to be your most valuable allies in the industry. Others that create that same positive first impression may reveal themselves to be unreliable, thus holding you back instead of helping you expand. Choosing your supplier is always a gamble, and you can even out the odds by trying out more than one.

If you have multiple suppliers, you can see which ones most consistently meet your needs and expectations. You can compare the quality of their products, the speed at which their shipments reach your customers, and how well they communicate with you. All of them may prove more than satisfactory; alternatively, all of them may be liabilities. Working with multiple suppliers is ultimately best at giving you multiple chances at a solid partnership, even if you only choose one in the end.

 

List of Dropshipping Suppliers

For your convenience, we have drawn up our own list of dropshipping suppliers you may wish to check out. Some provide only one specific type of product, while others are more general in what they distribute. At the very least, this should give you a head-start on your search for the right partner.

Before reaching out to any of these clients, remember our teachings from above: do your research. Look up as much information about them as you can, especially from independent resources and reviews. You cannot be too cautious in this step of the process.
