Anyways the problem i am going to talk about today is as i have already mentioned in title how to find good product suppliers for your Ebay Business.
If you want to make money selling products on eBay and build solid business from this, you need to find good product suppliers that you can really depend on. There are hundreds of product suppliers offering competitive price for wholesalers, but their products are often cheaply made and low quality. You need to filter the good from the ugly. Here are 7 ways to find product suppliers that give satisfaction to you and your customers:
Always Do The Comparison Before Using Any Supplier
There are hundreds of suppliers you can use. So, naturally there will be good and bad suppliers out there. You have to do some research and comparisons before using any supplier that you choose. For instance, if you find that supplier A is the best supplier you can use, take a look at other suppliers first before deciding to use this supplier. In this way, you’ll be able to really choose the right supplier for your eBay business.
The Price And The Real Quality
Of course, you should choose a supplier that can provide you with cheap products in high quality. You don’t want to disappoint your customers on eBay later. That’s why you need to find the best deal. Always buy a few samples before deciding to buy wholesale products for your business. Check the quality first. Make sure that your suppliers really provide high quality products with cheap price.
The Variety Of Products
You need a supplier that can provide you with variety of products that you can choose. Remember that your eBay customers will be very delighted to see variety of products that they can choose. If you only provide monotonous products with very little choice, you can’t make your eBay store interesting for your customers. For instance, if you’re selling flash drives on eBay, be sure to find a supplier that can provide you with hundreds of unique varieties of flash drives.
Big Profit Margin
How big your profit margin will be? You can find cheap products on your supplier’s website, but if they can’t give you big enough profit margin for your eBay business, you’ll not be able to earn maximum profit in your business. Choose a product that can bring you big profit margin. For instance, you might want to sell clothes on eBay for the average price of $15. Then, you try to find a supplier that can provide such clothes with only $5 apiece, but with good enough quality that you can sell it for $15 without getting any complaint from the customers. This is how you find a supplier that can give big profit margin for you.
Lowest Shipping Cost
You need to purchase lots of products from your suppliers and they need to ship your products on regular basis. If the shipping cost is too high, you might not be able to gain enough profit from the transaction. That’s why you need to find a supplier that can provide the lowest shipping cost for you.
Find Suppliers That Can Provide The Products You’re Looking For
It is good for you to find a supplier that can provide enough products that you’re looking for. Make sure that your supplier has abundance of stocks for the products that you’re looking for. This is important because if you have lots of demands from your customers for certain products and your supplier can’t provide any more products for you, then it can be dangerous for your business. You might lose many sales. That’s why you need to find a reliable supplier that can provide the products that you’re looking for.
Good, Reliable, And Responsive Customer Service
Customer service is an important part of any business. Your supplier has to have good, reliable, and responsive customer service. This is important because if your supplier is accessible every time you need them, you won’t have to worry about problems related to your products. You can just call them and they’ll assist you immediately to resolve it.
Those are 7 ways to find product suppliers that give satisfaction to you and your customers.
