    Hi, In have joined as a free member looks great, if you have not joined for free, I recommend, you will notice they charge a fee for dropship plus shipping fee. Actually not too bad in fees. Some dropshipping sites markup items so high or markup shipping fees and you can not make a profit or much of one. You can make a profit with this site. I hope this helped, if you have any questions let me know...

      Yes I would be careful, maybe do month to month and do not prepay for a period of time, if you try this service.

    I know this thread is a bit old but I am just now looking onto Wholesale2b and it is possible to simply buy their custom data feeds for the different vendors and then take your orders right to each vendor (just set up separate vendor accounts) then you are not paying them to be a middle man, you are simply paying them to be a data consolidator and trust me, if you are trying to upload 1,000's of dropship products to a site and keep them updated, this is allot easier than one at a time.

    If you are making money in the e-commerce game, you can buy the datafeed plan for $149 and then pay a one time custom feed set up fee for $79 and once the feed format is set up for your platform, each CSV feed is only $8.99 a month.

    The only other similar option I have found is Inventory Source and they charge like $25 for the first feed and (monthly) and $15 for every additional monthly feed or they have a premium service where it is $50 for the first feed and $30 a month for all others and they do everything.... I have 3 feeds with one site here and it is worth every penny of the $110 a month I pay not to have to manage 10,000 products everyday myself.

    These companies are of benefit as data feed vendors, at lease in my opinion

      Hi LCJr:
      I have been using InventorySource for about 10 days now. The staff is very helpful and friendly. However two major things really slowed me down. First off, they couldn't figure out how to set up a merchant account through PayPal properly. Secondly, I was not getting the true wholesale price from a supplier, when I tried to populate their items on my website. The prices would've been too high for me to be competitive. They have been trying to look into it for the last week and nothing was resolved. Very frustrating. So I quit.

    ********DON'T TRY IT *********


    They don't deal with direct wholesaler they deal with drop-shippers and this is not the subject of my subscription i thought i will find a competitive prices from main manufacturers & wholesalers

    I tried amazon subscription
    I pushed ALL their product to Amazon with one click right
    before bushing , i need to add these fees to the markup
    Amazon : 15%
    Wholesale2b : 3% +2.5$
    +
    1% or 1$ to me
    ==> >What i get
    99% of products don't have the buy box
    ie, there are other vendors who sell these products at reduced prices

    1% of remaining products have drop shipping fees from the ( wholesaler ) they say (from 0.99$ to 20$ ) .

    So keep your money in your pocket
    and look for real wholesaler


    Regards

      I joined Wholesale2B last week and already disappointed. I listed three smartphone cases on Ebay at Their suggested retail Price of $49.95 and charged me $19.95 wholesale. I found the same case selling at Wallmart for $22.00. No shipping or handling fees. I understand Walmart buys in bulk but Come on. I was looking into Inventory Source and Alibaba but now reluctant. any Good supplier info would be appreciated

    It's the usual problem, saw InventorySource so subscribed out of interest. FIFA 14 Xbox One $53.61 wholesale (loose term) - Amazon.com $49.96 via Amazon not third party. Now given what we know - the simple question then becomes how can the third party marketplaces ($45.01) sell it cheaper when Amazon.com has the largest buying power in the marketplace and have a ~25% gross profit margin - net profit ~5% on the majority of products.

    We know there are various niches where Amazon overprice - normally secondary market products which are 9-12mths. Often there is a logical explanation however in this case we are thinking it is not a pleasant one. The thing is we have access to a platform that we can autoload 1mil new products (with auto pricing & inventory sync) per month and sell in 180+ countries with dynamic pricing for local checkout currency and run it ourselves (similar to how companies like Net-A-Porter do it - the platform was modeled on this company after all). However to build up 100+ distributor agreements would take years - the dropshippers seem interesting but price themselves out of the market. We're pretty happy with a 25% gross profit margin the same as Amazon - which would net out to 5-10% profit - but that would make the products 20% more expensive than Amazon - that's a tough sell.

    @ImportExport - can you give us a real life example with a brand - it helps validate what you are saying.

      No I can't for the simple reason that I am helping people import for high profits and I would never recommend trying to import and sell recognized brands. That would be a recipe for disaster.

      Many of my students do private labeling, usually with products other than the currently popular supplements and cosmetics. By doing this they can establish their own brand and not encounter the massive competition that Amazon and a lot of smaller players represent.

      Even those who don't do private labeling can make huge margins selling well chosen generic products. By buying direct from genuine manufacturers they buy at prices that wholesalers buy at.

    We were afraid that was going to be the answer. The problem with generics and white label is very simple - limited upside. We won't go in to the details but they are going to only have a few hundred products, a few thousand at best. That means an upside revenue limit in the $10s thousands for most (yes there are always exceptions). On top of that you miss the commercial branding & marketing that the household names run - generics you don't have that. Very different business model - not for us as the platform can handle $100s thousands to $millions revenue with 100s thousands of products. Each to their own approach. Anyone else have any comments.

      You can make several $100s thousands selling generic products.

    I know this isn't your question... but I'd highly recommend avoiding dropshopping. I tried it. It's not a long-term business model.

    Sourcing your own products to sell has HUGE margins and doesn't always need a large investment if you know what you're doing.

      Dropshipping is promoted as the best way to start small because it requires very little investment, but your suggestion is worth considering instead.

      Most people believe the myth that you have to buy huge quantities to buy direct from overseas manufacturers. They also often think that importing is very complicated, but I have taught hundreds of people how to do it the easy way.

      Yes, the margins when buying direct from overseas manufacturers are HUGE, even when buying small quantities. Dropshipping works on very low margins.

    from what I researched, any dropshipper that charges you a join up fee is bogus... Any thoughts on that?

      YES! It's totally true.

      The majority of dropshippers that charge a fee has PLUMMETED since 2006. (No scientific, just my observation.)

      Why? Because it's a model that doesn't work. It's way better to find someone - if you MUST dropship - that makes money on the margins of the product instead of fees.

      Nowadays dropshippers inflate their prices purposefully. If you MUST use a dropshipper, you'll need to negotiate which is getting harder by the day. It's why I have been teaching people how to ACTUALLY dropship (even though I don't think it's the right course) for years.

Whether you sell on Amazon, eBay or a website, this drop shipping business has designed something with you in mind. Anytime I have a question or any query, they have been very kind and helpful and always respond, usually within 24 hrs. I will definitely say that Wholesale2b is a class apart and I would surely recommend it to anyone.
      @johnmitchell03 has obviously not read through this thread or he would have been embarrassed find that he is a rare happy customer of Wholesale2b.

      By some strange coincidence his opening sentence is word for word taken from Wholesale2b's website.

      Even more strange, the second sentence is identical to a sentence on the website "About us" page, except for the first word "It".

      I suggest anyone interested should read this whole thread.

    I did a little research on them and some price checking and I found their prices to be much higher for products that I found with others like them.

    I have used this website service . Please see this youtube link ->(Pause the video to read) and also read my commends.
    Share also this youtube video so more people to know about this bad dropshipping website.

    Comments from video: I didn't achieve to put one product because the connection was too slow when i could surf at other websites without problem. I asked refund and they returned me 13.12€ from the 23.42€ and i used their service only half day.
    Their products have many incomplete information which makes it difficult to put them on ebay. Also many products don't have shipping policy description which ebay asks this information as compulsory.

      Do never intend to work with any kind of wholesaler/dropshipper that ask for a monthly/yearly fee to use his website, these are not just more than middlemen trying to take our money!

      Don't be so naive! This kind of websites usually sell very low quality staff from China with inflated prices, you will lose your money for sure.

      Finding a true dropshipper is a hard work, I spent hours and hours of searching, making contacts, sending emails and calling to lots of suppliers and only after they pass all my checks and filters about reputation, years in business, quality of products, price range, shipping fees, quickness of reaction to mails, margin of profit and other commercial and legal issues, only then I will include them in my suppliers list and give them a try... Only a very few will remain as trade partners...
