Default where to look for wholesale stuff?

I just got a listing pulled on ebay selling brainetics so Im feeling depressed. What are some good wholesale websites that are recommended? I have tried looking at dhgate and tradetang, etc but I have not been able to
find a product that I can sell. Obviously I cant sell branded items so Im guessing most people make money selling generics?

I just need someone to point me in the right direction. Is there a website the sells cheap generics?

There's quite a few distribution / wholesalers in USA that you can google up.
I'd have told you the names, but I forgot what they were.

Google up: USA distributors / Liquidation / wholesale warehouse and it'll come up
with the names.

DHgate? heh... I never bought from them, but they are known for selling @@@@ and I advice you to stay away.

Google/Ask Jeeves/Yahoo,etc type in whatever it is you plan on selling for example cups, so type in cup suppliers, cup distributors, cup wholesalers,etc

the problem with dhgate and other chinese sites is that they mostly have branded items. It seems that ebay is up in your ass if you sell anything branded.

I have been doing research on what to sell but im coming up empty thanks to Vero. Im guessing MLB baseball hats are not a good idea to sell either right?

DHgate has tons of scammers and few legit guys
its hard to find those good guys in such a bad bunch

hence why no one likes Dhgate - 10 % good guys and like 90% scammers in there lol

I have bought for dhgate many times, it has been great!

They key is to ask questions before you buy from them and read listing carefully.

I use to buy from liquidation.com also, however 30 % problems.

Not everything on dhgate is brand name. You have to dig a little deeper, they also have nonbrand items as well, keep looking you'll eventually find something. Good Luck!

As slapped has indicated, you need to search the forums as you are new here, OP.

the thing that annoys me is that even if i do find a product that sells well on ebay, I cant seem to find it at wholesale prices

For example, quicksilver singlets for men seem to be a decent item but i cant find it anywhere for wholesale

ok now i realize that it is best to get the product directly from the manufacturers. How hard is it to do this? Do most require that I have a license?

I wanted to try to buy some Diesel jeans directly from diesel but I cant find anything on their corporate website.

is dropshipping a viable way to make money? Are there any good dropshipping websites? Im pretty desperate here. I've been searching all day and nothing. Being unemployed does not help either.

Google up a liquidation company that's in New York. I forgot what it's called, but they have pallets of items for sale.

Dropshipping can work, however you are not in control of the goods yourself.
I personally do not like that, but others' who likes doing it, will know what to do.

yeah that's the thing that bothers me about dropshipping. no control.

Has anyone dealt with viatrading.com? They have pallets of assorted clothing. Am I likely to lose money if I buy one pallet? Im sure shipping is expensive and it does not really say what items each pallet contains.
