Buying Wholesale, why?
We buy wholesale and sale retail for a simple reason. This reason comes down to one word. Profit.
You need to turn a profit to survive. A profit that is high enough to pay for the existence of your store or business. A profit that allows you to pay yourself a living wage and to cover your overhead. Also if it is going to be a growing business a profit large enough to allow you to reinvest in the business.
Here I have found a few resources to help you grow your profit margin. There is a learning curve involved. There is also the simple path of trial and error that we all must walk. Some things will work for you and those same things will not work for the next guy. Some times you will take a path that appears good and for what ever reason you get lost.
The truth is that you are going to have to take a few chances and a few risk along the way. You are going to have to do one of the hardest things on earth to do and that is to meet and greet new people and contacts. I will suggest some contacts. Some may work some may not. We are here to try. If anyone tells you that they know all the answers and that they can make everything all right is obviously a politician. You are going to have to work to achieve anything in this world.
Overseas Supplies for Your Online Store
Whether you are building your own website or running an online store at Ebay you need supplies. We have reviewed many of the domestic sources for supplies now let’s go overseas.
There are many sites, but the biggest and most popular is one titled Dhgate. Here you will be able to find a ton of generic products and clothing goods. They do a massive business in wedding dresses.
There is something here for almost everyone. If your online store sells phone covers or baby shoes you will find it here. This is also a great site for digging up personal use items as well at a wholesale price. I needed some lights for a film project I was working on and found them here at almost half the regular retail price. So whether it is finding supplies for your online store or for yourself this is a great site to visit.
About doing business here. They accept almost all forms of payment. You could go with paypal, but to be safe I would suggest using a credit card, if there is a problem with your order a card company is better able to deal with it and protect you than paypal. Shipping time could be as little as 5 days or as much as a month. Average time is about ten days.
This is also a great site for seasonal items, just order far enough ahead so that they arrive in time.
Summing up this is another great site to find supplies for your online store or website.
LIGHT IN THE BOX
This is one of the biggest and perhaps the best of the online overseas wholesale marketplaces. There is something for every seller here. Whether you sell cell phones or their covers.
Whether you sell Cosplay costumes or dresses straight from the Oscar red carpet you will find it here. If you need Wedding dresses or all the things that go along with them Light in the Box is a great place to shop. You can find cameras, video game controllers and home security systems.
The prices are great for resell and depending upon the volume of your orders many sellers offer free shipping.
Depend upon the shipping service that you select it take as little as four days and as long as three weeks, the average shipping time is 7-10 days. Check them out.
