I’ll teach you how to find trustworthy suppliers for the drop shipping company in this part. This is how I identify reputable drop ship vendors and gain permission to sell their items. I’ve already discussed the vendors you should avoid in earlier sections.
These may leave you wondering what type of vendors we are looking for. Therefore, before you look for Shopify dropshipping websites, let’s know the tips.
Know Your Competitors
The first step is to identify your competition. After deciding on a dropshipping niche, you’ll want to identify retailers that currently offer in that niche. As I have stated, there are no good niches without competitors. People are generating money in these areas; thus, there is competition.
So you’ll want to look up the websites of your rivals. To do so, search for your topic on Google. Then you’ll go through the top results and browse their stores to see who they’re selling for. We need their dropship suppliers also to be our suppliers.
Find & Prevent Untrustworthy Drop Ship Suppliers
Now, let’s go through two things to avoid while looking for drop ship vendors. Unfortunately, many new drop shippers make these supplier errors.
Making Use of Drop Ship Directories
I’d want to make the first point is why you should avoid using drop ship supplier directories. When you search for dropshipping websites USA, you will come across many dropship supplier websites that claim to offer millions of items. They’ll charge you a fee for access and provide you with a list of dropshipping items.
I know several individuals who earn money through drop shipping. But none of them use these directory sites. Don’t pay for access since these sites are designed to make money by collecting fees. Use these dropship folders at your own risk.
Purchasing a Turnkey Dropshipping Company
I want to warn you about purchasing a turnkey store, no matter how appealing it may seem. If you search drop shipping, you’ll find many turnkey dropshipping companies for sale. Everyone else’s traffic sources will not work for you since your pricing will be too expensive.
Please don’t buy one, no matter how appealing it appears or how excellent the price is. Whether for $500, $1000, or $2000, purchasing a readymade store is a massive waste of time and money. Do not purchase any of these sites since they will not make you money.
Obtain Drop Ship Supplier Approval
Now let’s get to the main stuff: being accepted with your dropship providers. Making a ‘Master List of Suppliers’ in your specialty is one thing. But how do you get approved? Here are some brief ideas to assist you in successfully handling the approval process.
Create a Demo Store
Now that you’ve chosen your specialty and investigated your dropshipping suppliers, it’s time to establish your dropshipping store.
You will create your store on Shopify before you are approved by any suppliers. This is done initially since no credible supplier will accept you till they see your dropshipping shop.
