Default Wholesale?

Thought I'd ask this question that everyone likes to ask, where do you get wholesale? I found plenty of websites but they are out of my price range. Where do someone with only a few hundred dollars to invest start. What seems to be very profitable on ebay is cell phone chargers and batteries.

I have quite an extensive list, but I doubt anyone would give up their nest egg. Some for now are

GlobalSourcesDirect.com
SmallVolume.com
Salehoo.com

I have a ton more but theyre a little more special than public posts

Anythings helpful, by all means, pm me if you dont want to post public. I'm willing to pay for a supplier, after paypal takes the limit off my account. Whats the best stuff to sell,I always go straight for the electronics, might need to rethink that approach.

Electronics are a bad area to sell if youre selling legit products. Theres a VERY low profit range and a ton of competition. Unless youre selling VERO.

Thanks for the advice and links. I'm always looking for high end electronics to sell, but ur right, they are very low profit and alot of competition. I'm starting to look at smaller items like assesories.

Dhgate sucks, they have low quality stuff and sometimes people don't even send you the right item most of the time. I suggest going to alibaba and finding a supplier who accepts paypal.

I tried and failed with both DHgate and Alibaba, I ending up finding one burried deep in thewholesaleforums.co.uk and recently a user went of the business so he posted up his entire list of suppliers.

Yozalo, clearly you haven't utilized dhgate to it's full potential.

I've bought tens of thousands of pounds worth of stuff off DHGate, and only ever had problems with a select couple (which is to be expected).

I find it much more reliable that Alibaba, not to mention the escrow payment holds.

I get all my merchandise off dhgate. Its a very tedious process of asking ALOT of questions to make sure know what ur getting. I found one good supplier and have been using him for 6 months without any problems. Of the ⊗⊗⊗⊗s, some are of very low quality. You can expect to loose 10% of your stock due it falling apart during inspection.

But if you are savvy, its a can be a good source.

i just wanted to chime in here...

i too have had bad luck with dhgate, the sellers delay and delay in shipping, and if they do ship the times i tried them they send the wrong product or half of the quantity ordered.

just my 2 cents

i fid that finding suppliers is the hardest part of the process.
