Dropshipping on Bonanza.com, is it possible?

Buying on Bonanza.com is becoming more and more popular making this website is a perfect place to advertise your niche of dropship products.

With wholesale2b.com, you can easily import thousands of products to your Bonanza.com account by adding custom feeds to your wholesale2b datafeed plan.

The first thing you should do is signup for a free account at wholesale2b.com and review over 1 million products from over 100 dropship suppliers.

If you like what you see, you can then activate the datafeed plan from your free account so you can start selling on Bonanza.com.

Once you have activated the datafeed plan, simply login to your wholesale2b.com account and click on the top green button Datafeed Plan.  From this page you will see the list of all our integrated drop ship suppliers.  You can also browse products by supplier from this page.

Remember that you don’t need to register with any of the suppliers since wholesale2b.com and also handle the order fulfillment for you.  This means that you could be selling products from tens of suppliers and still handle your orders from one single place.

Scroll down until you find the supplier of your choice, then click on the link “add a custom feed”.

On the next page you can choose the Bonanza feed template, and enter a markup to help you set the selling prices.

Your feed will require 24 hours to be created.  Once ready, you can click on the small download icon located next to your custom feed and follow the instructions.

Here is the list of instructions:

Step #1: MAP the supplier categories to the Bonanza category ID numbers

Bonanza requires that we use their category IS numbers in the data feed. To complete this step we have already prepared the list of unique categories from your chosen supplier, so you may simply enter the Bonanza Category IDs next to each unique category.

Click here to view the list of Bonanza category ID numbers and names

Click here to enter the Bonanza category ID numbers.  THIS LINK WILL BE FUNCTIONAL ONLY FROM THE WHOLESALE2B.COM INSTRUCTION PAGE.

Once you have completed the mapping, the Bonanza category ID numbers will be used in your data feed. <b>This will be required only one time per feed

You must wait 24 hours for your feed to be refreshed using your new MAPPING once you have completed.

STEP #2: Download your Bonanza feed

Once your feed has been refreshed the following day, you can download it to your computer.
To make it easy, we have split your feed into multiple smaller files  (each file contains 25,000 products) and they are zipped into the file named <b>bonanza.zip</b>.

Use the URL located on the top of this page to download the ZIP file to your computer.

Double click on the file <b>bonanza.zip</b> to extract the actual files from the ZIP.

If your chosen supplier has less than 25,000 products, then you will get only one file from zip file named “split_bonanza.00.cv”.  Otherwise you will find several files.

STEP #3: Import the file to your Bonanza account

Login to http://www.bonanza.com with your bonanza login.

Build An Online Business From Home: 5 Easy Steps

You have heard that other people have successfully built an online business from home, so why can’t you? You can! You just have to know where to begin. There are an unlimited number of at home businesses opportunities to choose from, many of which are time consuming. For example, you could freelance in your profession of choice. While this is certainly one way to go, it requires a significant time commitment. For those who only have a few extra hours to spare each week, and who want an easy and secure way to earn—drop shipping is the way to go. A dropship business can be set up in just few hours, and maintained with as little as 1 hour each day. Here are the 5 easy steps you need to get started!

Step #1: Sign Up For A Free Account With Wholesale2B.com

Creating an account with Wholesale2B is fast, easy, and FREE! Once you create an account, you will be able to browse through our dropship suppliers, as well as our selection of over 1 million products.

While signing up is free, to get started selling you will have to select the monthly membership plan that meets your needs. Currently, membership plans are as low as $24.99 per month. This is a steal, especially considering the amount it would cost you in both time and money to build direct relationships with our dropship suppliers.

The membership plan allows you to automate your business. It has built-in business tools, and allows you to push your products directly to eBay, Amazon, dropship feeds, or even to your own dropship website.

Once you select your membership plan, you will be provided with step-by-step instructions to get your store up and running. This will vary depending on the plan you select, but is designed to be intuitive—even for the novice dropshipper. Your store or website can realistically go live the same day!

Step #2: Select Your Dropship Niche

Before you being loading products to your new home business, you need to select your dropship niche. In other words, you need to determine who you want to sell to. For example, will you sell to a large target audience—such as moms ages 20 to 40, or will you sell to a specific niche such to outdoor fanatics?

The choice is yours, and the sky’s the limit. I would suggest selecting a niche you are familiar with, because that will help when it is time to select what to sell.

Step #3: Load Your Products

Now that you know who you are selling to, it is time to load your products to your website. This process is also very easy.  Simply pick the suppliers from the list of 100+ suppliers listed on wholesale2b and click SAVE.  Then minutes later your website will be loaded with all the products from your chosen suppliers including all their categories, product descriptions, images, prices, etc.

Of course you will have the option to remove any unwanted categories if you wish to narrow down your selection to only a few categories—and thanks to your Wholesale2B membership plan, your website will be updated every day with inventory updates.

Step #4: Promote Your New Dropship Business

Once your website or store is live, you want to start spreading the word. Start with friends and family first. Then work in some online marketing. This includes promoting your website on social media, in blog posts, or in the multitude of paid-for online marketing. Marketing will be of greater importance if you have an independent dropship website. This is only because Amazon and eBay already have an established traffic base. But don’t let this discourage you though!

By selling on your own website, you don’t have to pay out a percentage of your sales to eBay or Amazon!

And don’t forget, you can sign up for more than one membership plan. This means you could have a website and sell and Amazon or eBay.

Step #5: Maintain Your New Business

Once your store is live, you will need to invest a bit of time each day in processing orders, and in responding to customer emails. When you first get started this may only take a few minutes each day, and may build up to an hour or more each day once your store gets busy. The great part is, that you can squeeze this time in, in-between your other daily commitments. For example, you could responds to customer emails 2 or 3 times during the day, and process orders at the end of each business day. At least once a month you should go in and add or remove products from your store, and continue to promote your store externally.

And don’t forget—you only pay the wholesale products when you make a sale, so your startup capital is minimal.   Plus processing orders is super easy.  You simply click one button per order and the order will be handled by the wholesale2b team.  They will handle orders and returns with the suppliers for you so you never have to deal with any suppliers directly.  Every aspect of your business can be handled directly from your wholesale2b account.

It really is that easy to launch your own dropship home business! Yes, you will need to develop some new skills, but this is a business model that is designed for the novice—and designed with your success in mind!

Good luck and remember to always have fun with your business.

Tips on how to choose a great domain name for your online store.

Nothing can make or break an online store more than an effective or ineffective domain name. The right domain name can go a long way in giving your customers confidence in your product. The wrong name can drive customers away for good. Choosing one can be a stressful experience, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a few tips on how to choose the best domain name for your business.

Think of something that truly defines your business.

What is the main idea behind your business? What image do you want to convey? When making a domain name, try to think of something memorable, something your customers are going to remember every time they want to shop for whatever it is you’re selling. Not only that, but a good domain name has to be easily pronounceable. It can’t be a name that people struggle to say out loud; a successful business becomes a part of the customer’s vocabulary. Don’t make it too long either; research shows the top websites have domain names with an average of nine characters.

Whatever your business is, make sure the domain name you choose isn’t too close to your competitors.

You might be marketing similar things, but you don’t want consumer traffic going to rivals because you couldn’t think of an original domain name. Established businesses are guaranteed more traffic simply because they’re established. A domain name that’s too close to the competition is never going to attract a consumer base naturally wary of businesses afraid to think outside the box. Being wary of trademarking is important as well. Make sure the domain name you decide upon is free from anything a competitor might use against you in the future.

Decide on whether you want to be brandable or discoverable.

Will your business rely on search engines to generate traffic? If so, consider using real words for your domain name. If you’re selling laptop stands for example, try something like www.toplaptopstands.com. For early start ups, sometimes it’s more effective to have a domain name easily found by search engines. Relying on banner ads and paid search listing? As said before, make your brand name catchy and easy to remember, something like www.LapStands.com (yes I know that’s terrible).

Do you want your brand to go global?

So you’ve got your winning name and you’re ready to get started. At this point you should think about registering your domain name with country specific extensions. For example, www.LapStands.com or www.LapStands.nl. It can say something of the confidence of a business willing to expand their online presence in different regions and it can give customers the confidence to use you over the competition.

Conclusion

We hope the tips here can help you on your way to creating an effective domain name. Naturally it’s down to you just what you call your website, but if you’re struggling to think of something creative, consider using a domain generator like this.

When you have found the perfect domain name, head over to wholesale2b.com and signup for the dropship website plan, and we’ll buy the domain name for you.  That’s right, you will get it for free!

A Record Year Of Dropshipping At Wholesale2B.com

It is official, the 2015 holiday sales numbers are in—and it has been a record breaking year here at Wholesale2B!

• The total numbers of sales have increased by drastically.
• And we have more new sellers now than ever before!

Our Holiday Shops Are Still Open

We had many sellers open holiday dropship businesses, with the intention of taking advantage of the increased online holiday sales. However, after experiencing firsthand how easy it is to make money online—most sellers have reached out to say that they intend on keeping their dropship website, or eBay and Amazon stores open all year!

It’s Never Too Late To Open Your Own Online Store

Yes, the holiday season is the busiest time of year for most of Wholesale2B’s members—but that is not to say that they are not busy all year-round. As long as you keep your finger on the pulse of what your online shoppers want and need, your store can be a success all 12 months of the year!

This means you must have a clearly defined target audience, and that you must stay on top of the trending seasonal and industry trends. Both of which are easy to learn!

For example, if your dropship niche is for children under the age of 10—then yes, toys will be a hot item for the Christmas season. However, kids of this age are growing like weeds, so they always need new shoes and clothing. They are active in sports and other extracurricular activities, so gear and supplies are required all year-round. And don’t forget Halloween, back to school, or the summer season—when kids are in need of related treats, toys and gifts!

But that is only one example!

Pick a trending niche, a lesser known niche, or a niche you are well versed in. You can even pick more than one niche—and open multiple ecommerce websites.
The Highest Hourly Wage You Have Ever Earned

Even if your store only starts off with a few orders in sales each week, once you learn the ropes, the average dropship business owner works about an hour a day. But the good news is, that even as your sales increase—your time spent working only increases minimally.

This is because we automate our systems, making it easy for you to load your website and store, and easy to submit your orders.

The time you work each week can easily be broken up, for example 30 minutes in the morning, and 30 minutes in the evening. This time will be spent marketing your dropship business, adding unique content to your store, researching and uploading new products, answering client questions, and submitting order information.

Since you aren’t responsible for any of the shipping, or even your occasional returns—you are able to work at whatever time of day or night works best for you.

Still Not Sure What Dropshipping Is?

There are quite a few misconceptions about dropshipping, so let’s walk through how it works.

Generally speaking, dropshipping means that you sell products that wholesale suppliers keep stocked at their warehouses. This means that you can place their products on your dropship website, or in your eBay or Amazon store—but don’t have to keep anything in stock.

Although you are buying from a wholesaler, you can sell as few as one item at a time!

Once an order is placed, you pay your cost for the order—and you keep the profit. Your wholesaler takes care of all shipping, and will even email you shipping information.

So What Makes Wholesale2B Different?

While you can certainly research wholesalers on your own, this is an exhaustive and time consuming process. Not only that, but there are, unfortunately, many wholesalers you want to avoid. Either they don’t keep their products in stock, they don’t communicate well, or they are not speedy with shipping.

This is why you need Wholesale2B!

• At Wholesale2B we source the wholesalers for you, and we only work with reputable wholesalers.
• We have over 1 million wholesale products available to sell in your store.
• You can sell these dropship products at any price you like, but you always have access to rock-bottom wholesale pricing.
• You can sell products on your own ecommerce website, or push products directly to online marketplaces such as eBay or Amazon or Bonanza and more.
• You can add or remove products any time you like, and can sell in as many product categories as you wish.
• You can build your own website, or purchase our dropship website membership plan.

At Wholesale2B we have 4 versatile membership plans to choose from—so pick the one that works best for you!

Start The New Year Off Right By Launching An Online Business!

Launching a dropship business is fast and easy, and requires minimal startup capital. In fact, you can get up and running by the end of day—with less than $100 to start!

If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to pay off your debt, regain financial freedom, or finally launch the online business you have been dreaming of—then Wholesale2B is exactly what you need!

How to add dropship products to your shopify website

Although we at wholesale2b, can create a nice website for you using our own cart software, some of you may prefer to use Shopify.com instead to create your website.

The bad news is that Shopify is just a shopping cart service, so you still need to find ways to add products to your website.

The good news is that you won’t have to look any further to find ways to load products to your site. Wholesale2b can help you load thousands of dropship products to your Shopify website very easily.

With wholesale2b you can easily add products from any of our integrated dropship suppliers to your Shopify website. We have over 1 million products to choose from over 100 suppliers. Plus new product and new suppliers are added almost every month so your selection will keep growing, helping you grow your business with almost no effort.

For this you will need 2 accounts:

A) an account at shopify.com. They will host your website.

B) an account with wholesale2b.com. We will provide you with the files needed to import products to your Shopify website.

Wholesale2b offers various dropship plans and the one you will need to help you load products to your shopify website is called our “dropship datafeed plan”.

With this plan you will gain access to custom files that are in the format compatible with Shopify. Simply choose your supplier(s) from our list and download your Shopify file to your computer.

Then follow the easy import steps to add thousands of dropship products to your Shopify website.

Here are easy step by step instructions to follow, once you have added a custom Shopify feed to your wholesale2b account.

First a little background of why shopify feed is served from zip file:

Shopify requires that the file you will use to import products be less than 20mb in size therefore wholesale2b will split you file into multiple smaller files and those will be zipped to a file named shopify.zip.

How to download the feed file:

Once your feed is ready, you will get a URL that you can copy/paste in a browser to download your Shopify feed to your local computer.

Then you must UNZIP the file to get to the actual feed(s).

Then follow the steps below to import the feeds to your Shopify website.

Step 1: First login to your shopify admin panel. Shopify will provide you with the login access to your website admin panel. If you don’t have it, then contact Shopify support.

Step 2: Click Products link from leftmenu, See screenshot below:

Step 3: Click Import button on very Top, this will open a modal box, See screenshot below:

Step 4: In this modal box select shopify feed file (or shopify feed files if feed has been split into multiple files of size < 20 MB), See screenshot below:

If you already have products it will show you checkbox “Overwrite existing products that have same handle”, please tick this checkbox. See screenshot below:

Then click on Upload File button

Step 5: It will show you some sample data imported from feed file. See screenshot below:

you can confirm and proceed importing file by “Start Import” button.

Step 6: Now it will show you modal box with animation, that means its processing your feed. See screenshot below:

Step 7: After import complete it will show you list of products uploaded. See screenshot below:

You are done!

TONS OF NEW DROPSHIP PRODUCTS ADDED TO OUR AMAZON PLAN

OCTOBER 28TH – NEW PRODUCTS ADDED TO OUR AMAZON PLAN

Today we added a new option to our Amazon plan to help members push even more products to Amazon.

These new dropship products are Unverified products which means that you might find slight differences between the Amazon image or item name when compared to ours, however in many cases they are still the same.

The process for adding these new items is the same except you first need to tick a checkbox to confirm that you wish to add Unverified items to your list by indicating that you confirm they are the same as ours.

If you already have the Amazon plan, just click on the top green AMAZON PLAN button and you will now see 2 sets of links per supplier. One link for Verified product counts, and one link for Unverified product counts. This will allow you to browse and add these new types of products to your Amazon list.

Enjoy this new feature.

The Holiday Season Is Near—Making NOW The Perfect Time To Launch Your Online Business

Hello Wholesale2B Team! While it may feel like there is still plenty of time, the holidays are only a couple of months away—making NOW the perfect time to finally launch your online dropshipping business.

While dropshipping is a lucrative business all year-round, the holidays are the busiest time of year for online retailers. In fact, 70% of shoppers begin holiday shopping prior to the month of November—and really shift things into gear once November arrives.
With the fast shipping options, you can offer in your online store, many shoppers will continue to shop online up until the week before Christmas.

So What Does This Mean For You?

What this means for you, is that now is the best time to get your online store up and running! You can do this on your own website, on Amazon, on eBay or any combination of the multiple selling options we make available to you at Wholesale2B.

Updating Your Inventory For The Holidays

Another thing to take into consideration during the holiday season, is how to revise your current inventory. Even if you prefer to sell in a specific niche, we suggest that you think outside of your niche during the holiday season—and that you add a selection of at least 100 ideas that you may only sell during the holiday season. A few ideas to consider include:

• gifts for kids
• gift sets
• toys and games
• clothing
• electronics
• Adding gifts for the primary family members your target audience is most likely to be shopping for.

Let Your Friends And Family Know What You Have To Offer

The great thing about the holiday shopping season, is that everyone you know will be searching for the perfect gifts for friends and family. Once you get your online store loaded with holiday products, let your friends and family know what you have to offer.
Imagine having all of your friends buy their Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s gifts from you this year—instead of from their favorite department stores?

Need Some Help Getting Started?

If you have been holding off on launching your dropship business because you need some help getting started—visit us today at wholesale2b.com and we will have you up and running with your own store stocked with products, in just 1 business day.
