Thinking About Offering Drop Shipping/Wholesale to Marketplace Sellers

I added a wholesale section a few years ago to my ecommerce website, but to be honest I was too focused on my retail customers to ever really stick with marketing it, pricing and etc.

My sales have been kind of down lately, and since I do not sell on amazon or ebay, I am thinking of offering a drop shipping/wholesale program. Many of my items would still have a 20-30% potential profit (not based on retail...but going 'street prices'). A few would have a little lower, and few would have a little higher profit......but I would say the average would be 20-30%.

Here is my question......
What and where are the best places to find potential sellers?

I don't want to waste my time with a bunch of 'flash in the pan' sellers that try it once and leave. I would rather find a handful of real good sellers......than a ton of bad ones.
I am not going to do any stupid fees for prices will be set with free shipping so you know exactly what you are getting.

    I don't know you will like my suggestion or not but still...

    Facebook group related to Shopify (drop shipping) will do the work.

    Find some high ticket - high selling products related to Shopify and Facebook ads training. Check out their Facebook page from the website. Join their private mastermind group and you will have access to many NOOB + PROFESSIONAL drop shippers.

    By adding some value to the community you can post your thread their following community rules obviously.

    I hope this will help you somewhere.

      Thank you.....but I don't think you understood what I am talking about. I am a stocking retailer.....i usually have around 2500 items on hand at any given time. I was talking about finding sellers that would want to resell my items.

      Thank You,

    Well, you could certainly do a search for the general types of products you have, see what sites show up in the search results and contact the top ones individually. Apart from that, you could contact various "dropship directories" and see about listing there.

    One way you could get around the whole pain of setting up accounts that sit dormant is to just give a coupon code to places that you are giving wholesale prices to. That way, they can just buy things on your website and enter their customer's ship-to address.
