The Best Dropshipping Suppliers and How to Find/Contact Them
So you’ve decided to start your own dropshipping website and your first sales are coming in… But are you sure that you have chosen a trustworthy supplier for your dropshipping business?
In this post we are going to explain how to find the most trustworthy wholesale dropshipping suppliers in the market. To do this, we are going to explain the two main methods for finding dropshipping suppliers. The choice is ultimately yours and it’ll largely depend on your budget. Without further ado, here they are in detail:
You can use different tools to facilitate your work when it comes to finding quality products and dropshipping suppliers. However, the tools that are the most effective have a monthly cost. In our opinion, the two best softwares for these tasks are:
This allows you to incorporate a huge number of filters and segmentations, both for products and for dropshipping suppliers. You will mainly use this tool to search for winning products and see which markets work the best. Ads Spy will allow you to obtain a large number of quality metrics, although it won’t come at a cheap price. The plan is $149 a month, but it will save you a lot of time and money when testing products. It will also allow you to see which ad metrics are working best, with as much targeting as possible. So if you are really betting on the success of your dropshipping business, it is an option to keep in mind.
The price of this software is a much cheaper option, only costing $20 a month. Therefore if this is your first dropshipping business, this software may be the better option. Alishark is a similar tool to Ads Spy, but it offers more information about products and wholesale dropshipping suppliers. It will also show a ranking of the suppliers of a product based on the scores they have received, among other filters.
The second option you have to find a trusty dropshipping supplier is to do it manually. To do this, you can use different platforms and tips that facilitate any tasks. Concerning the platforms, those that we recommend most are:
Oberlo is a tool to help manage your Shopify dropshipping website much easier. It allows you to quickly and easily manage all your orders with just a few clicks. Oberlo also has a series of functionalities that are really useful to help you find the best dropshipping suppliers. The suppliers for the same product are ranked based on the shipments they have made and the reviews they have garnered. Therefore, using these suppliers will increase your chances of success when choosing quality wholesale dropshipping suppliers.
Dsers is the most advanced option among all. With similar features to Oberlo, you will be more prepared to withstand a greater volume of work. It will help you find reliable suppliers that have the capacity to handle more than 100 orders a day. Keep this option in mind when scaling your dropshipping website.
Out of all, this is the most used platform. It is inevitable to think about Aliexpress when talking about dropshipping. This platform perfectly integrates with your dropshipping store through applications like Oberlo. Additionally, within Aliexpress, you can order products with filters such as “the most relevant” or “the best valued suppliers”. For example, if there is a product that has 5,000 completed orders and an average score of 4.8 out of 5, we can choose “over insurance” from an experienced and reliable dropshipping supplier.
And to close the post with joy….
I would like to point out a couple of tips to keep in mind when choosing your dropshipping suppliers on Aliexpress:
- You can see customer reviews to find out what shipping times that supplier is handling, see real photos of the products, or find any problems being reported. You can also check the packaging that the product comes in. It’s an important factor to know what conditions a product will arrive in for your customers.
- Using Aliexpress’ own filters, as well as extensions similar to “Aliexpress seller check”, will allow you to find the perfect balance between the quality of your supplier and the cost of the product.
