Are you looking for simply a wholesaler (i.e. you buy in bulk from them at wholesale prices and retail on eBay from your own inventory) or are you looking for a drop ship wholesaler (i.e. you retail on eBay and they ship on your behalf from their stock)?

The products you're looking to sell will take up a lot of storage space, so unless you've got a spare warehouse lying around, I'm guessing you're probably looking for a drop ship wholesaler.

There are several companies around that offer directories of drop ship suppliers. You can find many of these directories by doing a Google search on "drop ship directory."

I have had dealings with one (worldwidebrands.com) and have found the suppliers listed in their directory -- the ones I checked on independently, that is -- appeared to be legitimate drop shippers. Access to their online database of suppliers isn't free, but it's not prohibitively expensive. And you may find it more economical in the long run to invest in a directory that puts you in touch with pre-screened suppliers as opposed to taking your chances in the open market.

Obviously, I haven't dealt with every drop shipper in their directory, though, and I haven't had any dealings with vendors offering the types of products you're interested in, so I can't really give you any assurances or direct experience in that market.

Be aware that many "dropshippers" are total scam operations as well. Tread very, very carefully.

Cool Cell Phone Distributor

Hey there! I'm actually a cell phone distributor. I'm also an eBay PowerSeller so all my stuff is profitable on eBay. I only stock a few items at a time but they are all very profitable on eBay.

Thanks so much.

That is true.. there are many chinese online shops that are selling not so good quality products. Some are fake and are duplicate.. so I wouldn't blame others being too suspicious about buying goods in China.. however, there are still others who are big fan of Chines products..

That's where the confusion starts. While there are those who rant about the products, but there are also some who glorify them.. SO I would suggest that for you to be safe in buying products in China.. I will suggest you read online shop reviews first and do your own research...

Listen to what others are saying and weigh things out fairly.

@Cindy16 According to my experience, it depends on your price. All you know about Chinese products is low price ,lowquality. But if you know that most of the products in Supermarket or shops are made in China, only brand them with their own brand name. That means they are made in China with high quality. The one who would like to by a LV Handbag with $200, of course it is fake. If you have bought one fake lv bag, you will know the quality is very good too.

That is not encourage you to buy fake products, I would like to say that high quality will be with higher price.

@CBuck03 you can find wholesaler or manufacture at Alibaba.com. You'd better find the manufacture directly and source products from them. Then you can sell them on ebay and other stores.
