How To Find DropShippers And Wholesale Suppliers: Let’s Start By Calling China, Shall We?
Glad to see that you have come to Zabubli to figure out how to find dropshippers.
First, let me give you the standard textbook lecture: “It is best to pick up the phone and call every single manufacturer in every country in the world and find out if they drop ship. If they don’t, hey, this is as good a time as any to convince them. I’m sorry? Yes, every country in the world, but you can start with China. Well, what are you waiting for, pick up the phone!”
Now that we got that out of our system, let’s talk how and where to find wholesale suppliers for eBay, your online store, or whatever you need a distributor for.
Let me introduce you to the 21st century… It’s called the Internet. Oh yeah, I forgot, we’re too scared to look for wholesalers and suppliers online, since everything is a scam. SaleHoo is a scam, World Wide Brands is a scam, Shopify is a scam. Yup, scam all over the place.
Give me a break.
If you really picked up the phone and called every single manufacturer in the world, I bet you would get just as scammed, probably more, as if you combed through the internet looking for wholesale suppliers and dealers who dropship (or don’t). Dishonest people are everywhere. It doesn’t matter if you’re online or offline, you can (unfortunately) find those type of people and suppliers fairly easily, whether you want to or not.
It’s just quicker to get through them on the internet and then find some legitimate, real businesses who want to work with you and help you make money as well as make money themselves.
Hey, that’s the name of the game. It certainly beats calling random manufacturers and saying “hey, are you one of those drop shipping companies? If not, could you please become one for me?” Could that work? Certainly. Is it practical to do it these days when we have the grand internet in front of us? Probably not.
Now, if you go searching online for “where can I find wholesale suppliers?” or “where to locate dropshippers?”; you are bound to come across an obscene amount of gibberish. You may realize it or you may not, but so many of those so-called “sites” are there to game the innocent, unsuspecting public. Half of them are probably being run by a bunch
of kids who are claiming to be the Bill Gates of dropshippers as they switch back and forth between their webpage and World of Warcraft. Sure, it may sound a bit far-fetched, but then again, is it really?
I don’t know how you stumbled upon Zabubli’s Drop Shipping Blog, as I like to keep a low profile and mostly get visitors on here referred by their friends and colleagues. In any case, if you don’t know who I am, then read about Zabubli The Drop Shipper here, then come back.
Welcome back, all jokes aside, the only real way as far as how to find dropshippers, wholesale suppliers, and dealers for whatever it is that you’re looking to sell, is to get into one of the dropship directories.
OMG, did I say drop ship directory?
I sure did, just make sure you don’t sign up for some directory which someone made up yesterday which consists of a bunch of scrambled phone numbers for the White and Yellow Pages (1995 edition). You need to join a real directory or two. If you think you can get away with paying a one-time fee of $1.99 and find dropship suppliers for your dream business, then you might as well turn
your computer off and get back on the phone. A couple of these directories are as legitimate as they come. They also cost a little bit of money to join (oh no!). If someone can’t make it work with the resources which I recommend, then it’s their own fault & not mine or the directory’s fault.
If you’re not looking to absorb small start-up costs, forget about being in business.
Read that sentence above this one once again. Stop thinking that somebody is actually going to give you access to find legitimate wholesale and drop shippers completely FREE. Searching for it online will yield you nothing. If you have some common sense, by now you’ve certainly learned that nothing is free in business (nothing good anyway).
Be prepared to make some type of a small investment if you are serious about your business and making money in the drop shipping business.
My all time favorite source for thousands of legitimate drop shipping companies and suppliers…

We’re talking over 7 million products from any category you can imagine, for guaranteed wholesale prices. They are the most comprehensive drop ship resource online that you can imagine, and also certified by eBay to engage in the business. Does that mean something to you?
It means something to me.
