How to Find Wholesale Dropshipping Suppliers in 2021?

Starting a dropshipping business has never been simpler than today. With the development of Amazon, eBay, Shopify, and other online marketplaces, anyone with a low budget can begin an online shop. In case you’re simply beginning, you might not have enough money and a distribution center or warehouse to store your products. In addition, it can be overwhelming to sort out what to sell. Running a dropshipping business through warehouse suppliers can be the right choice. But still, some people are unfamiliar with warehouse suppliers. A quick glance at Google Trends shows that this year there is a rise in interest in the subject, but it’s still far from reaching its potential:

Today, we will introduce several warehouse suppliers for your dropshipping business. We hope that after reading this article you can learn which wholesale dropshipping suppliers you can choose from, and more tips for your business to scale up and develop.

What is a Wholesale Supplier?

A wholesale supplier is a distributor selling products in bulk to retailers who then sell them to the end consumers. Usually, wholesalers do not sell directly to the consumers, because their products have high minimum order quantities (MOQ).

But in the eCommerce dropshipping world, you can take advantage of buying from wholesalers at wholesale prices even when buying only one unit. 

Benefits of Wholesale Dropshipping

Access to Large Products:

Wholesalers usually own their warehouses and distribution centers, if you work with them, you can easily list kinds of items for dropshipping with a low price on your store and create a profit margin. Given that wholesalers usually boast numerous items in their warehouse, you don’t have to worry about finding the specific products you want.

Reliable Product Inventory:

Working with wholesalers means that you don’t have to worry about whether the products on stock can be sold out or not, and you don’t have to pay for the maintenance of the stock. If the business takes off, you don’t need to worry about the inventory and stock. In addition, you can pre-stock some items in case that they will be sold out.

Wholesale Dropshipping Suppliers

1. CJ Dropshipping

CJ Dropshipping is a wholesaler integrated with product sourcing, automatic order processing, and shipping fulfillment. It provides various services to sellers from different platforms, including Shopify, WooCommerce, ShipStation, Lazada, and Shopee, etc.

It has 29 supplier warehouses which help dropshippers around the world to set up a worldwide business. CJ has more than 400,000 items in various fields for a dropshipping business. It has no limits on the purchased quantity and the products are low-priced with high quality. You can run a dropshipping business swiftly on CJ Dropshipping.

2. Costway

Costway is one of the top wholesale websites in North America and Europe. They sell everything people need starting from business activities to daily life whether that’s home and garden items to sports and hardware equipment, from auto parts to DIY projects all the way to business and industry products. 

It is a dropshipping-friendly platform with wholesale prices. They welcome dropshippers such as yourselves with open arms, with open marketplaces from all over the world.

3. Worldwide Brands

Worldwide Brands is regarded as the “grandfather” of wholesale supplier directories, founded in 1999 by eBay Powerseller Chris Malta. It has verified and vetted each one of its 8000+ suppliers. It does this by meeting the companies at trade shows, visiting their factories, and seeing for themselves that the products being offered are legitimate.

The issue for dropshippers, also known as Light Bulk Friendly on WWB, is that prices offered for low or no-minimum orders can be unprofitable unless you are making large purchases. Overall, WWB is more for those making large orders and have significant eCommerce experience. It’s not a place for beginners and you would be much better off trying out one of the other sites.

4. AliExpress

AliExpress is one of the world’s largest eCommerce wholesale dropshipping suppliers. Almost anyone taking an interest in dropshipping knows about AliExpress, as they are one of the most used dropshipping suppliers when starting because of their low prices and vast product selection.

Besides the fact that they have thousands of products in every category you can think of, they also have warehouses in the US, China, Russia, etc. This way, before purchasing a product, you can choose which warehouse is closest to the delivery location for faster shipping times.

5. Inventory Source

Inventory Source is a wholesale dropship service software that has robust inventory and back-end management features. It’s also integrated into all of the major eCommerce sites like Shopify and Big Commerce. With more than 1 million products available from over 100 suppliers, you’ll definitely be able to find the right fit for your niche. Its software allows you to export product descriptions and images to your site with the click of a button. If you don’t have a site, the service can build one for you.

One thing Inventory Source can’t do is ensure that your orders can be combined together. That means you’ll have to contact sellers directly to discuss bundling your goods. One of the best things about Inventory Source is its customer service. The company will go above and beyond for its clients, answer every question, and even provide advice on best practices.

If you have multiple suppliers and want to integrate them all into one feed for your store. This back-end management is key for dropshippers to focus on what matters most: making sales instead of inventory management and product updating.

Conclusion

There are several advantages of dropshipping from wholesale suppliers, including lower prices and low cost on warehouse stock. Finding a reliable wholesaler is not the end of your business plan. Remember to keep customer service at the top of the list. Always take care of your customers before anything else. Learn from the different suppliers above, read the guides on how to work with them, and get on your way to growing your online dropshipping empire!

Every time if they fail to deliver the product in time, they reply to the ticket with this message. So unreal. This looks like a message template for excuses.

---The product had arrived in our warehouse on 21, but it failed to pass the quality inspection. Therefore, we have asked for a new one in transit to our warehouse, which will take3 days. We will dispatch your products as soon as they are all stocked. Thanks for your understanding. Have a nice day! Best Regards---

𝟑 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐖𝐡𝐲 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐀𝐝𝐬 𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠⁣..

1 - 𝙉𝙤𝙩 𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚⁣

When setting up a Facebook Ads campaign, you should know that your ads often need at least 3 days of running time to progress from the learning phase.⁣

In the learning phase, your ads will often perform poorly. That’s because Facebook’s algorithm is still “testing out the waters” and trying to target different smaller audience groups within your target audience to find out which responds the best to your ad.⁣

So, before thinking that your Facebook ads aren’t converting, leave them running for at least two or three days, and you will likely see an improvement in your campaign’s performance.⁣

Don’t forget that it works the other way around as well. If you leave your ads running for a long time (especially for smaller audiences), ad fatigue will occur, and your Facebook ads will stop converting.⁣

2 - 𝙁𝙖𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙮𝙯𝙚

Most businesses want to increase their Facebook Ads conversion rate, but with so many variables to consider, I understand that it may be challenging to do so.⁣

Luckily, you can analyze your Facebook ad campaigns to get a clearer picture of what can be improved. The more data that you have, the better your chances of optimizing your ads.⁣

To optimize the conversion of your Facebook ads, these are the most important metrics to look at:⁣

- 𝘾𝙋𝘾 (𝘾𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙧 𝘾𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙠)⁣
- 𝘾𝙏𝙍 (𝘾𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙠-𝙏𝙝𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝 𝙍𝙖𝙩𝙚)
- 𝘾𝙋𝙈 (𝘾𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙧 1,000 𝙄𝙢𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨)⁣
- 𝘾𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙧 𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙑𝙞𝙚𝙬⁣
- 𝙑𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙤 𝘼𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙋𝙡𝙖𝙮 𝙏𝙞𝙢𝙚 (𝙞𝙛 𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚)⁣

If you get to know which of these metrics underperform for your campaign, then it will be much easier to fix the problem that your Facebook ads are not converting!⁣

After advertising on Facebook for some time, you will get a feeling for when a particular metric is under or overperforming.⁣

3 - 𝙉𝙤𝙩 𝙩𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝⁣

There’s one thing that you should remember when advertising on Facebook:⁣

Test, test, and test!⁣

So, if your Facebook ads are not converting, test out some different images (or videos), ad copy, and headlines.⁣

You will never be able to predict which combination of these factors will convert the best, so the only option left is to test them all out.⁣

Don’t be afraid to test the ad more than once. The more you test, the more you’ll be able to understand what works and what doesn’t.⁣

When testing different ads, remember to try out different marketing angles as well.⁣

I hope this helps you out, if you have any questions leave them in the comment section below and I’d be more than happy to answer in as much detail as possible.
