If you have found yourself in the process of finding legitimate wholesalers for products you want to sell, it can be a very time consuming, painful and difficult process, through trial and error. There are hundreds of websites claiming to have the “Ultimate” wholesale directory, unfortunately over 99.9% they are there to purposely scam you out of your hard earned money. You will hear claims such as: Once you purchased our “Wholesale Directory”, you will soon find yourself making $200,000+/yearly profits and no experience is necessary for these results.
The first rule to product sourcing is: You cannot purchase name branded electronics from China, so that means for those that think you will find a supplier for for a name brand product from aliexpress, alibaba, made-in-china, tradekey, ec21, you will only lose your hard earned money and be at square one again. Hong Kong does have legitimate distributors for branded products, they have contracts with manufacturers and you will not find them advertising on B2B china websites.
If you’ve been fortunate enough to avoid the aliexpress or alibaba scamyou’ll now be able to look forward and find legitimate wholesalers with ease. Business generally is a lot of hard work but there are a few things you can do to make your life easier and one of those things is joining a great online service called Salehoo.
Salehoo owns the worlds number one wholesale directory and literally have thousands and thousands of suppliers on record who offer very competitive pricing which is exactly what you need if you’re looking to compete in marketplaces like eBay, Amazon and anywhere online really.
Not only do these suppliers offer below wholesale pricing they also run their businesses with you in mind. That means low minimum order quantities, fast delivery, various methods of payment and the exact same level of customer you’d expect when buying a brand new pair of shoes or golf clubs!.
I’ve been a member of SaleHoo for a couple of years. The site is a goldmine of suppliers. I like the feedback from other members, and the forum information. Also, that the suppliers have been checked out for legitimacy and are easy to find.
I currently sell ladies’ accessories (purses, lingerie, scarves and shawls), printer ink, coins, and hammered aluminum through eBay. As well as books through the Amazon fulfilment program.
I’m also helping my parents downsize by selling items for them. Soon I hope to start doing this for others too. You never know what they will come up with for you to sell and it gets the creative juices flowing!
The great thing about this business is that you work your own hours from your own home or office, and you can change products if you need to. You can even be seasonal.
One of the biggest obstacles I’ve had to overcome in selling online has been information overload. SaleHoo has been a big help there as not only do they make the process of finding suppliers quicker and easier, they also have a great amount of useful advice all in the one place.
