Given number of companies who competitively price their product for reselling and various drop shipping methods they offer, it get real confusing to new comer. The best thing they can do is purchase hot drop shippers or manufacturer directories and ping each or broadcast for quotes. It is easier this way as it will fit quick launching spirit they are in. Typically you get responses from 10-20% of requests you send. This is more useful than direct contacts you make.
Here is why you will get better deals when you go through these directory purchases you make:
1. The product manufacturers know you are serious and not just collecting emails.
2. The product manufacturers advertise through these directories and offer directory for premium placement and since this brings a constant stream of sales websites they offer a better deal than what they would through other sources.
3. Typically pre-screening is done by directories themselves hence they spend less time spending time to separate wheat from chaff.
4. Sometimes initial consulting is offered by directories hence they spend less time in finding best match services.
The above are typically translated into higher commissions for seller. There is just one caveat beware of multiple layer sale. 50% of folks who claim to drop ship are basically middlemen who add one more layer of cost. Ask your directory supplier to do this chaff removal for you.
Here is one good and affordable directory of American Wholesalers, international sources and closeout sources – mydropshipperlist.com.
