3 Reasons Drop Shippers Prefer Wholesale2B

In order to run a profitable and successful drop shipping website, you must partner with reliable drop ship partners. In the early days of dropshipping, this meant that sellers had to build (or pay handsomely for) connections and relationships with vendors, suppliers, and wholesalers. While this method worked, it limited sellers to a smaller range of products—and the time consuming process of securing and maintaining partnerships. This often led to at least a few bad partnerships with suppliers who didn’t keep their inventories and pricing up to date, were slow to ship, or simply didn’t prioritize their smaller sellers. Wholesale2B built our system for success around eradicating these roadblocks, which is why both tenured and new drop shippers continue to sing our praises.

Reason #1 We Identify Reputable Wholesalers For You

The amount of time it takes to identify quality and reliable vendors often comes as a surprise to most new ecommerce owners. Then comes the stress and worry if your small or single item shipments will really be of priority. It’s a hit and miss way of conducting business, that can lead to unhappy customers. However, at Wholesale2B, we source, test, and approve vendors before we add them to the mix—meaning that you can post your inventory with confidence.

Reason #2 Over 1.5 Million Products To Choose From

Going it alone, you may be able to successfully identify and build a working relationship with a handful of wholesalers—who may have a few hundred products you can sell. However, we have built partnerships with a long list of wholesalers allowing you direct access to no less than 1.5 million products—across hundreds of product niches. This includes seasonal products, trending products, and those hard to find products your shoppers are searching for.

Reason #3 Easy-Breezy Business Model For Drop Shippers

Wholesale2B does more than just partner with wholesalers, but provides drop shippers with an easy-breezy business model. Our platform and packages ensure that you have direct access to everything you need to launch your new business, or simplify your current ecommerce business. From building a new website, pushing products directly to feeds and sales platforms, one-click order processing—and same day business startup, with no lengthy payments or approval.
These are just a few of the reasons that drop shippers love Wholesale2B! Whether you are looking to sell on eBay, Amazon, dropship feeds, your own dropship website—or all of the above—we make dropshipping easy!

A good dropship affiliate program that pays good commissions

Affiliate programs are programs that will pay you a fee each time you refer someone to a business. This is a sort of a compensation program that will compensate you for sending new people to a company’s website and become a paying member.

There are 2 types of affiliate programs

One-time commission program
This type of affiliate program will pay you commissions only 1 time per new signups. For example, if a company offers a 30% commission and the buyer you referred to a site pays the company $100, then you will earn a $30 commission.

Recurring commission program
This type of affiliate program will pay you a commission each month for as long as the people you refer remain an active paying member with the company. Typically, those commissions are offered on membership based website, however please note that some companies still give a one-time commission even on membership bases sales.

Recurring commissions are always what you should be looking out for. Basically as an affiliate you should be trying to grow your monthly payouts as much as possible, but if you are getting only 1 payout for each member you refer then the workload required to increase your monthly payment will be great. On the other hand, if you work with recurring monthly commission payments, then by referring 100 people means that you will keep getting monthly commission payments on these 100 referrals for as long as they remain active.

For example, if you have 100 referrals that got a plan for $100, and your commission is set to 30%, then your commission every month will be $3,000. After one year your total earned commission payments will be $36,000. Again this is based on referring only 100 people.

Imagine how much money you can make if you refer 100 new signups every month!

At wholesale2b.com, we pay recurring monthly commissions for as long as the people you refer to remain active members.

Our commissions payout is a flat 30% commissions on the monthly fee. We have several monthly plans that a member can choose from their account so you have a high likelihood to get a high commission payout since there is potential for a member to add more plans to their account.

For example, if you refer someone to wholesale2b.com and that person activates our monthly website plan, then you will earn a 30% commission each month for as long as the member keeps the website plan active. Now if this same person later on decides to also start selling on eBay and Amazon, then those plans will also trigger another monthly commissions to you.

As you can see, by referring only a few people you can increase your monthly payout exceptionally over time.

All commissions are paid using Paypal so all you need is a normal Paypal account to receive your monthly payouts.

If you aspire to be a successful at selling products from an online store, then Shopify is certainly a great choice for your shopping cart. They offer great templates and there are many cool Apps that you can download to your store to customise it in many ways.

Part of running your online business will involve fulfilling your orders. Whether you decide to work with dropship suppliers or not, the process of fulfilling your orders will involve manual generic steps which are outline below:

Confirm that you received the payment from your buyer

Find out which supplier the item comes from. As you know you can have products from various suppliers on your site.

Create a new order with the proper supplier by manually inputting the order details with your supplier account. This involves typing the item number, the quantity, the billing address and the shipping address and making your wholesale payment to the supplier.

Then wait until the supplier ships the items and manually input the tracking code into your order and send it to your buyer.

As you can see, if you are getting many orders every day, the process can become tedious and time consuming.

Thankfully there is a solution to this problem. With wholesale2b Shopify App, the order fulfilment can be almost fully automated. With our App you will only need to click on 1 link to process your orders without any need of manually inputting your orders details with any supplier. Just one click, and your orders will be sent the proper supplier for you.

Can I run a dropship business from outside the USA?

The quick answer is YES. You don’t need to be physically located in the USA to run a dropship business and be successful.

At wholesale2b.com we get many requests from people from countries like Canada, Thailand, Greece, Australia and even Russia and more, wanting to start drop shipping in the USA but don’t know to get started.

The great news is that anyone can start an online business with drop shipping as long as you partner with the right people.

At wholesale2b, we have the team and the experience to help you run a successful drop shipping business from any country.

There are a few requirements needed to be able to sell in the USA, so if you are located outside the USA you should keep reading before getting started.

If you are selling on eBay, you must have a valid eBay account with no restrictions on selling to the USA. Normally eBay will apply limits on accounts that are not in the USA that may prevent you from creating auctions in the USA so you should contact eBay and request that they remove any restrictions from your eBay account. The main restrictions that should be removed are those that will prevent you from creating auctions in eBay USA and restrictions that will prevent you from using a third party listing tool. Please contact eBay and and request that such restrictions be removed from your account if they are applied.

If you are selling on Amazon, then you do need to have a Professional Amazon Seller account. This is required by our Amazon plan. The Amazon account needs to support the USA and Canadian marketplaces since you can choose one or the other as your main marketplace.

If you are selling products from your own e-commerce website, then you just need to make sure that you have a valid Paypal account since this is the easiest way to capture payments online and there is no monthly fees. I do recommend that you get your Paypal account VERIFIED and that you link it to your bank account and add a credit card. This will help you avoid having funds frozen in your account.

With wholesale2b.com you can start selling in the USA market very quickly as long as you have an active plan. I encourage you to signup for a free account at wholesale2b.com and review the products from our integrated dropship suppliers.

It is not uncommon, these days, to find more individuals seeking to become entrepreneurs, using the online market.  Contrary to the pre-internet years, where a large sum of capital was needed to start a business, these days, practically anyone with a good idea and some entrepreneurial spirit can get started with a business, but very few know how to do it in just 1 day.

The first thing that comes to mind is selling products online.  This may sound like an idea that might be difficult, because you might think you need wholesale suppliers, an online store, a marketing strategy, a warehouse, and some employees to help you with shipping, but all of this can be done with almost no upfront capital and in just 1 day.

In this article, I will show you how you can start your online business, ready to sell thousands of products in just 1 business day.

 Here are the most important steps you will need to tackle.

  1. Finding trusted suppliers with products that sell well,
  2. Determine the niche market you wish to focus on,
  3. Setup a website, loaded with your chosen products,
  4. Engage your buyers with an effective marketing strategy.

When you are done reading this article, you will be ready to execute the steps above.  In my article conclusion, I will give the solution to achieve all of this in just 1 business day.

Finding trusted suppliers with products that sell well

The first thing you will need to tackle is finding suppliers that can supply you with trusted branded products at true wholesale prices.

You should only choose suppliers that can dropship the products straight to your buyers for you.  Basically, the term “dropship” means you won’t have to buy products upfront.  You can sell supplier’s products, without having to buy them at the wholesale price.  Instead, you will pay the supplier the wholesale price only after you made a sale and have collected the payment from your buyer.  Then, the supplier will ship the product straight to your buyer, with no mention of their name or their wholesale price.  Essentially, your buyer will think the shipment is coming from you and will never know of the supplier.

This means you can sell thousands of products from many drop shippers, without having to invest tons of money upfront.

You should choose dropship suppliers with a good reputation, because the quality of their products will ultimately influence what your buyers will think of your business.  Always put yourself in the shoes of the buyer and make your choices wisely to ensure your buyers are happy.  Always remember that happy buyers will come back to you, and ultimately, this is how you will grow your business.

When choosing a supplier, do your research.  If you find a supplier name, then use Google to perform a search with the supplier name and read the reviews.

I would also recommend making sure your supplier is providing genuine and authentic products.  To build a reputable business, you should not sell any knock offs or cheap replicas from China.

Determine the niche market you wish to focus on

This is an important step, because it will affect everything you do with your business, from the business name to your marketing strategy.

If you are selling health and beauty products, then all the decisions you will make must be related to that niche of products.  This applies to simple things, like choosing the domain name for your website and even the set of banners and colors you will use on your online store.

Some large websites offer many products and categories, making the store, more or less, a generic place to shop for everything.   This is not a good approach, unless you are a very big retailer, like Walmart.   Remember that your business is new, and you will need to contact a community of buyers who will consider your website as an authority site for your chosen niche.  Having a niche website also means contacting people with a specific interest in a specific niche only.  This will help you narrow down your marketing strategy, so you can target buyers specifically interested in the products you are selling.

Setup a website loaded with your chosen products

This is actually the fun part.  In this step, you will decide which domain name to use for your website, and you will build your online website, and load it with products from your chosen suppliers.

You will also customize your website to make it look unique, with cool images and colors to match your preferred style.

This can be much harder than it seems, because there are many pieces to this puzzle.  This involves the following important steps:

  1. Finding a developer that can build the website for you,
  2. Finding a hosting company that can host your online store,
  3. Finding a payment gateway that can help you capture payments from your buyers,
  4. Automating the daily inventory updates to make sure your website is always in synch with the supplier inventory.  This will help you avoid selling products that run out of stock.

Once all these pieces are put together, you will have a functional website, ready to take orders.  Fortunately, in my conclusion, I will provide you with a one-stop place, where everything can be done for you in just 1 business day.

Engage your buyers with an effective marketing strategy

Now that you have your website ready, you need to start spreading the word about your site and start taking orders.

This is the part where you need to make use of an important skill that all entrepreneurs should have- patience.

Remember that, like any new business, it will take time before your business starts making tons of orders.  Anyone who gives you promises of overnight success should not be taken seriously.

There are easy steps you can take to spread the word about your website, without having to pay anything.  Here are some of the starting key points below:

  1. Inform all your friends and family about your new online business and make it a point to offer them a special discount if they buy from you.
  2. Add an email signature to all your email accounts.  People use email every day, so this is a great way to spread the URL to your online store.  You can achieve this by adding an automated signature text to your email, including the URL to your website.  An email signature is a small text you can configure in your mail application, which will be added automatically in the footer section of every email you send out.
  3. Post products in your Facebook account regularly and set up a new business page, dedicated to your new business.  Add postings to Facebook every week and actively engage with your visitors.  Always include a link back to your website in each posting, so your readers will have a quick way to get back to your store.
  4. You can also do the same with Twitter and build a list of faithful followers.
  5. Increase the number of links back to your website.  If you have friends who also have a website, then you can ask them to add a link to their website that points to your store.  The more backlinks you get, the more Google will like your website.
  6. Public forums.  A great way to create backlinks is to engage in online forums, with a focus on the same niche as your website and always include a link back to your store in your signature.  You can answer questions from other postings and create your own posts, as well, to trigger conversation about topics that relate to your niche.
  7. Write articles and add them to your website.
  8. Create videos and post them on youtube.com.  You can make videos that compare the features of an item you choose from your store, or you can make a marketing video for your entire store to help you spread the word.  Always include a good text description, with the URL to your store in the video description.  This will, ultimately, create a back link to your store.
  9. Free classified ads.  Posting ads for products on free classified ads is free and easy to do.  You would be surprised how many people make purchases from those websites.

As part of your marketing strategy, also consider using marketplace websites to help increase your sales volume.  Marketplace websites are sites like Bonanza.com and Amazon.com.  These websites can help you tremendously in contacting millions of potential buyers.

The main advantage with these websites is they already have tons of traffic from potential buyers every day.  You need only to list the items and wait for buyers to place orders.  Whenever you get a new order, always take the time to inform your buyer of the URL to your store and offer them a discount for their second purchase.

Finally, include eBay.com.  Pick your top selling items and put them on eBay to increase your sales volume.

You can also generate traffic back to your online store by using eBay.  You need only to create an eBay “about me” page and include a text description of your site with a URL back to your website.  The eBay “about me” page is the only place where eBay will allow you to put a link back to your own website.

Having an “eBay about me” page will also help you increase your name recognition on eBay, and your auctions will stand out from the rest, as there will be an extra icon.  This will help grab the attention of buyers.


Now that you have gathered all the knowledge to start your own business, it’s time to take action and execute all that is mentioned above.

As I stated, you can perform the important steps to start your new online business in just 1 business day.  Just head over to http://www.wholesale2b.com and signup for their All Inclusive Plan.  This plan will provide you with everything you need to complete all the steps mentioned above, without having to go anywhere else.
