These sites are like eBay in regards to the fact you don’t need to create an account with each individual supplier but rather, you create an account with the website. These sites are great for buying in bulk and can also be great for drop shipping.
There are some things you need to remember when shopping on these sites, especially if you are going to be drop shipping.
Most of the time they will offer free shipping even if you are buying just one product but a lot of the time the shipping times will be quite long. This can cause headaches if the customers are wanting their product quickly so double check the shipping time to Australia.
Always try to buy from sellers that have been selling for more than a year and have a good feedback. Also, look at the past feedback that they received on the same item. If it’s favourable, that is a promising sign you’ve found a good supplier.
Sometimes very useful information is included in the item details/description section. These details can be used in your ad on eBay.
Fakes & clones
Be sure you check the description if you are buying branded goods because there may be explanations that describe the product to be a fake or a clone. Also, read the feedback on the item to see what other buyers have said in regards to the quality and if they are genuine.
Before making a purchase, communicate with the seller using the Chat or Messaging system that is provided by on the site. Always clear your doubts and ask any item details, shipping or delivery questions you may have.
