I am currently looking for a few wholesale suppliers that are not dropshippers and actually have wholesale prices. I have done quite a bit of searching around online and I am finding it very difficult to find the wholesale supplier that I am after. I am looking for, specifically, a supplier in the adult industry with sex toys. If anybody can help me that would be great.

    I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for at Alibaba Manufacturer Directory - Suppliers, Manufacturers, Exporters & Importers they have everything.

      I've heard both good and bad things about Alibaba. Make sure you check every detail (such as is the manufacturer reputable).

      What about some reverse engineering, lol Spend some time in your favorite store that carries the merchandise you are looking to profit from. Jot down the name of the manufacturers, contact them to ask for your nearest reputable wholesaler

      Just a thought..... Eva

      I work specifically in importing large a volume of sex toys for distribution world wide. I have a staff in Nanjing and Shanghai in China that keep up my contact with my suppliers in mainland China.

      Alibaba sucks, flat out. 99% of the actual manufacturers do Not get on Alibaba, as they are already pushing their products to direct resellers. Most people on Alibaba are just resellers with high commission, which is why they actually want you to buy 200 of the same toy.

      Buying sex toys is about buying a diverse shipment, not 200 of the same product (which is actually what I do, but I'm buying 200 of this product, 200 of a different, and 200 from a newly created one, so I sell a diverse amount of medium to large volume depending on the specific toy, and then to resellers) I suggest buying something like:

      10 of one anal plug, 10 of another, 10 of another, 4 classic purple rabbits, 4 classic pink rabbits, 1 blow up doll, etc - you get the point. Dont go the route of 100 of one anal plug.

      The thing about it is, you need to have a good idea on what you are looking to resell, there isn't some magical catalog of all of the products being produced in Asia. If someone presents you with one, they are another middleman and you want to get as close to the source as possible, because this market is more competitive than you might think.

      Also, you have to have an idea on how you want to sell them. Selling them retail is going to bring you a lot more money per item, but you will need Western packaging, as most sex toys you get awesome deals on come with Asian packaging, which doesnt sell well in the U.S. and on eBay. Believe it or not, ordering custom packaging is very affordable, but the more you buy the more you save. The ones that are produced with no packaging also offer great deals, and the ones that are produced with western packaging usually offer less of a deal of costing more per item than packaging costs to make.



      $5.40 each

      I have a friend on here that actually lives pretty close to you that I was planning on getting more into my business now that eBay sales of sex toys is picking back up. If you want, I can get you in contact with him, hes a pretty smart guy in figure out what to buy to resell.

        Hi Benjamin,

        May I ask why you think there is so few real manufacturers in Alibaba?Because as far as I know,most of them are manufacturers.

        If your quantity is quite small in the begining,I suggest you go to the wholesalers,you will get good price and excellent service there.When your sales picks up,then you may contact the manufacturers,you will get better prices.Speaking of service,it varies from supplier to supplier.

    I have subscribed to esources in the UK and they seem very good.

    The US version seems to be at http://usa.esources.co.uk - i think that's because the .com name was already taken.
