Tips for Getting High Ticket Dropshipping Suppliers
Drop shippers all have one thing in common, they need good suppliers to be successful.
Having ﬂoods of trafﬁc to your drop shipping site does absolutely no good if you don’t have suppliers or have poor suppliers.
Quality suppliers who can ﬁll orders quickly, be reached by phone during business hours, and stand behind their products, are the foundation to your budding drop shipping business.
Funny enough, getting quality suppliers is where I see most people trying to take shortcuts or just giving up altogether. Time after time I ﬁnd lists of drop shipping suppliers being sold on the internet, some are even free.
Guess what, most of them share a common trait, they are crap! In addition to being crap, most of them are lists of companies who are playing middleman for the real manufacturers and they are getting a cut from every one of your sales.
Getting good suppliers requires you to go a little old school and pick up the phone.
Once you know what you want to sell, and have made a list of brands that make that product, you really need to plan out some time and make yourself pick up the phone to call each of them. Some of them are going to tell you no, some of them are going to blow you off completely, and some of them are going to use terms you may not have heard before. But don’t worry, by the time you read to the end of this post, you should be able to handle almost any supplier.
