New Dropshippers

Hi again,

More wholesale sources added in the last week or so.

(NB: If you're a paid up member and you've forgotten
your log in details please contact us but please remember
to include your *full* name and when you purchased because
without that, we can't look up your details.
)

I'm very pleased to see that dropshipping looks to be
taking off now in the UK as we are finding more and
more quality dropshippers every week.

One sure way to sort the good from the bad is if they
deal or specialise in one type of product.

The dropshippers that sell all manner of different products
are the ones to be careful about.

We came across this jewel of a dropshipper of
Dog Toys on our travels this week.

ID 2964.

Their site is a joy to look at and use, with high quality
photos, navigation, etc. They supply a wide range
of very high quality toys like ball toys, frisbee toys,
rope toys, squeaky toys, etc.

These are low ticket price items, ie. the retail prices
are all under a tenner, so they'll easily shift.

Unusually, they DO show wholesale prices and price
breaks and RRP on the site without restriction. The
profit margins on their stock are HIGH. All items
have a markup of 400% or more!

Each product shows full description, high quality
photo and RRP/Bulk prices.

Here's a random example of pricing.

Product xxxxx
RRP 3.49
Qty: 1....50p
2 to 50....40p
51 to 999....30p

Hmmmmmmm....1000% markup if you take 51.

They have no minimum order policy and are happy
to split boxes and repackage items so you get exactly
what you want.

So you can take 1 item or 100s, or use their
dropshipping service. Additionally, they only
charge actual postage costs for delivery.

You can order single items or bulk online without
even going through any vetting procedure.

They do add 17.5% VAT and the shipping
charges are very reasonable.

It's just like shopping on Amazon!

They charge 10GBP per month for dropshipping.

Email them for dropshipping terms.

Another interesting dropshipper is supplier 2966.

They retail and dropship very high quality toys. Things
like Wooden Toys, Rocking Horses, Pedal Cars, Dolls
Houses, Toy Boxes, etc.

They have a fantastic selection of toys. Even some licensed
names like Postman Pat, Brum, Disney, Noddy, etc.

You need to contact them for dropshipping terms and
a trade pricelist. Prices on the site are retail.

If you're new to approaching suppliers, please read
the advice given on our site. Just click the link titled
'Contacting Suppliers', right hand side of each page.
This will help you avoid having your emails to suppliers
ignored!
