MULTIPLE PRODUCT IMAGES BEEING ADDED PER ITEM

Having multiple images per item can be a huge benefit for sellers.  Buyers like to see the product they are buying from different angles.  It makes selling so much easier, however not every supplier has realised this yet.

Wholesale2b has over 100+ dropship suppliers integrated from which 23 suppliers offer multiple images.

Today we are download over 40,000 new product images from the supplier Greensupply.  This represents additional images to existing products so sellers will now have about 4 images per items from this supplier.

We are currently downloading the 40,000 new images which will take some time to complete.  You should start seeing new images already as they will be available as they get downloaded.  The full download will take a few days to complete so by next week you should see most items from this supplier with multiple images.

These new product images will automatically be added to your e-commerce store if you are using the wholesale2b website plan.  They will also be added to you new eBay auctions if you are selling on eBay.

We hope these new images will help you increase your sales.

If you wish to start selling products online but you don’t know how, or you don’t have any product to sell, then head over to http://www.wholesale2b.com and signup for a free account.  We have over 1 million products at wholesale prices that you can sell for profit on eBay, Amazon, Bonanza, Graiglist, or from your own website.  We can even build a website for you with our turnkey e-commerce dropship website plan.

Using The FBA Tool Kit To Boost Your Dropship Sales On Amazon

Amazon sales analysis tool

One of the most common questions we are asked by our new Wholesale2B members, is “What products should I sell?” While we always suggest selling in a product niche that you would personally buy from, you must offer a large enough range of products to ensure you remain relevant and competitive. Many of our members who sell on Amazon turn to the FBA Tool Kit to do just that.

What Is The FBA Tool Kit?

The FBA Tool Kit gathers current and past data that highlights product trends on Amazon. This includes both general product trends, and seasonal product trends. While the FBA Tool Kit was designed specifically for Amazon sellers who use Fulfillment by Amazon—its up-to-date data can still be valuable to you as a drop shipper.

The 3 Product Trends You Most Need To Know

The FBA Tool Kit provides 3 individual sets of data, each of which can be drilled down by day, week, or month. You can even look back at sales and product trends over the past few years. For example, looking at the hottest Christmas products for the past few seasons can help you to determine which seasonal items to sell in your store—that is of course above and beyond new and currently trending holiday products. The 3 product trends this tool allows you to access are:

Industry Specific Graphs—One set of data includes general industry data, compiled in a quick and easy to read set of graphs. Simply determine which industries are relevant to your product niche, and keep an eye on their overall trends. For example, the “Sports and Outdoor” busy season is often the spring and summer months—so you may want to stock up in those categories for your store. In total, there are over 25 industries monitored, a few of which include:

• Home and Kitchen
• Health and Personal Care
• Electronics
• Clothing
• Baby
• Pet Supplies
• Automotive
• Arts, Crafts, & Sewing
• And Many More!

Price List Analysis—Next up, you have a detailed report including a price list analysis for the UPCs/EANs you currently sell, or are considering selling. This data can be used to help you accurately price the products you decide to sell in your Amazon store. This spreadsheet provides you with a wealth of information, including: current offers, estimated sales price, profitability, and markup.

Product Tracking—Last but certainly not least, is the Product Tracking feature. Just as its name implies, this tool allows you to track specific products that you currently sell, or are thinking about selling in your store.

How To Apply The FBA Tool Kit—A Strategic Method Of Stocking Your Dropship Store

Whether you are new to dropshipping or Wholesale2B, or are a tenured seller—the FBA Tool Kit can help you take a more strategic approach to stocking your Amazon store. There are several methods you can use to select products, with a combination of your individual store’s data—and the FBA Tool Kit’s data. A few methods to consider include:

Keeping Your Finger On The Pulse Of Hot New Products—when an emerging gadget or new product begins attracting major attention, the data gathered within the FBA Tool Kit will alert you to its growing trend. Don’t just keep an eye on the hot sellers, but also a few products that are slowly but surely increasing in demand.
Prepping Your Amazon Store For The Current Season—while you are sure to have some product categories or product staples that you offer year-round, it is imperative to capitalize on the current season’s sales trends. There is always a sales trend, and your niche will help to determine which are most relevant to you. Seasonal trends can include the time of year: winter, spring, summer, and fall. It could include upcoming holidays: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, 4th of July, etc. It could also include industry-specific seasons: such as back to school, or hunting and fishing season.

Stocking Your General Items—capitalizing on hot new or seasonal products is essential, but you must also keep several general products in stock. Your general products should include the product categories and products that your target audience would expect to see in your product niche. Since Wholesale2B has over 1.5 million dropship products, you sometimes have hundreds of fairly similar products to choose from. The FBA Tool Kit can help you to narrow down your selection with factual data, instead of guess work.

The Amazon FBA Tool Kit To Complement Your Current Inventory Management Process

You may already have a system in place for selecting which products you want to sell in your Amazon dropship store. If that system is working for you, use the FBA Tool Kit to complement and strengthen your current strategy.

Even if you continue to load the products you sell by instinct and personal preference, you can broaden your reach by adding more researched products to your store inventory.

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.

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.

You really can have your new business up and running within the next couple of hours! What are you waiting for?

The Truth About Online Businesses—They Are Easy Than You Think!

While there are many jobs that require you to have a specific skillset, or that are simply out of your wheelhouse—an online home business isn’t one of them. The technologically savvy world we live in requires us all to have the vast majority of the skills required to launch a home business—meaning that it is easier than you might think to get started!

No Coding Required

If you shy away from launching a home business because you don’t want to learn how to code, then you will be pleased to learn that you don’t have to! There are many options when it comes to building a home business, most of which allow you to create fast and easy drag and drop websites—or that allow you the ability to sell products or services which are easy to set up by following simple step-by-step instructions.

You Don’t Need To Produce Your Own Product Or Service

If you want to work from home, but have been putting it off because you don’t have a product or service to sell—you can sell someone else’s products or services. If you have ever browsed through a storefront on eBay or Amazon, you are likely to find that many sellers offer a wide-range of products, categories, and brands. While you may assume they are selling from a large warehouse or brick and mortar location, they are likely dropshipping. AKA—they list products that someone else has in stock, pay for orders only once they make a sale, and their drop shipper handles shipping. This means zero inventory on hand!

Minimal Time Is Required

If you are a stay at home parent who wants to work from home online, but is concerned about the time commitment, or you already work full-time and don’t want to overcommit—your home business is likely to take far less time than you imagine. Unlike your kid’s busy schedules or your daily hours of operation at work, you can work online any time of day or night. You can even break up the work you need to accomplish into many small sessions you complete throughout the day. In fact, in as little as 1 hour most days, and around 10 hours each week—you can realistically gain a steady source of income. And if you have more time to invest, the better!

Having a home business goes against most of what we have been conditioned to believe, which is that you have to work hard to make more money. While you may still have to maintain your current employment, you can realistically launch and build your home business in your spare time!

Your Full-Time Job Shouldn’t Be Your Excuse For Putting Off Your Online Dropshipping Business

Even if you are passionate about your work, and have found an employer you are proud to work for—odds are you have a financial need for your full-time job. You work to provide for your family, to save for your first home, to pay off student loans—and to someday retire. While you are certainly not alone in your need for work, you are also not alone in your desire for more.

Your Home Business Has No Set Schedule

Sure your full-time schedule is already demanding, but an online dropshipping business is an extremely flexible way to work from home. Since you can manage your business from anywhere with internet access, you can sneak work in throughout the day. For example, you could reply to customer’s message first thing in the morning, process your daily orders while on your lunch break—and can set aside an hour or two each weekend to source new products.

One of the many great things about working online, is that you can work anytime you like! After the initial set up, most days will require an hour or less of your time.

Work From Home To Supplement Your Full-Time Income

How many times have you imagined what you would do if you had just a couple hundred more dollars each month? You could pay off your debt faster, have a bit more spending money, and build a larger nest egg. While your dropshipping business may not grow to that of full-time income, it can certainly improve your quality of life—and get you one step closer to your financial goals.

The More You Learn, The More You Earn

As with anything new, you will need to invest time in learning your way around your new dropship website, or your Amazon or eBay store. This includes how to select the right niche, how to market your new business, and how capitalize on seasonal sales—such as holidays, back to school, or trending items each spring, summer, fall or winter. The more time you have to invest in learning how to build your business, the more money you are likely to earn in the long run. While any business take time to grow, with dedication your home business could evolve into a full-time income. Or your current full-time job, could become your part-time job—imagine that!

Dropshipping allows anyone and everyone the ability to work from home. There is minimal startup capital required, and since we take care of the vendor sourcing and backend tools—your business can be up and running in just a few hours!

How To Use Drop Shipping To Find Your Niche



Finding the perfect niche products to sell, doesn’t necessarily mean selling products that you know and love. While selling products that you use on a regular basis may be what you initially gravitate towards, you must prioritize identifying trending products in a niche that does not have too much competition. Below are just a few ways you can use drop shipping to find your niche.

Identify Trends

First begin by identifying which products are best sellers on eBay and Amazon, then look for dropship products that are in the same genre—but that you are able to sell for less due to the impressive discounts available to you as a drop shipper. Also keep a close eye on how trends in best sellers shift and change. For example, some items will sell better in the summer, during back to school time, or around the holidays.

Test Your Drop Ship Products

Another way you can use drop ship to identify your niche, is to start by testing products in the niche you are considering. Since drop shipping does not limit you to one product category—consider setting up several different categories in your eBay and Amazon store, and testing products in each. For example, the same online store could have a category for electronics, bath and beauty, and home décor. Identify what your overall best sellers are, as well as your best sellers in each category

Always Be On The Lookout For Something New

As mentioned above, your online store can have several product categories that would appeal to one target audience—such as teenagers. Or you could specialize in a more specific product niche, such as clothing and accessories. Even if you have a successful niche, your goal is always to make more money—so you must be open to finding a new niche or audience to sell to. For this reason, consider testing 5 to 10 new products in your online store each month. This could be products your drop ship suppliers have available at special pricing, random picks, or new products you test after doing a bit of Google and/or target audience research. Also consider what other products will complement your current best sellers

Also keep in mind that your drop ship suppliers may not always have your best sellers in stock. Even if they do, they may not always be in the most in-demand make, model, or colors. This means you must always have a plan of action in place to ensure that you have a steady stream of new products to offer both your new and preexisting customers.

Make 2015 The Year You Get One Step Closer To True Financial Independence!

The New Year is here, meaning that many Americans have set a few resolutions for the goals they aim to achieve by the time 2016 rolls around. One of the most common resolutions people make, is to achieve greater financial independence.

The words “financial independence” have become a bit of a buzz word, but what does it truly mean to gain financial independence?

Does it mean you have enough room in your budget to take a well-deserved family vacation each year?

Does it mean that you have enough flexibility in your budget that you can afford the latest gadgets and electronics?

Does it mean that you have enough money that you no longer have to work for someone else full-time?

Depending on who you are as an individual, and what your life goals are—financial independence could be one—or all of the definitions above. Regardless of how you define financial independence, the larger and far more pressing question is: How do you achieve these goals?

The First But All Important Step—Creating An Additional Stream Of Income

Due to the need for financial security, most individuals do not have the flexibility or freedom in their current budget to leave their current job or primary source of income to further pursue their financial independence. That being said, most individual’s current jobs will never provide them the financial freedom they desire.

The good news is, there are a multitude of ways to improve your financial standing without abandoning your current source of revenue. The first steps you take towards gaining financial independence are the most important—and often the most nerve-racking because you do not know what lies ahead. While you may be unsure of what lies ahead, you can be certain of what lies ahead (little to no change at all) if you do not take the first and all important step of creating an additional stream of income.

Launching Your Own Online Business

The Internet allows absolutely everyone the opportunity to improve their financial standing, by providing services, or selling products online. While many choose to stick with what they know and offer the services that they are already well-versed in, and offer in their full-time job. One of the challenges that arise with this train of thought, is being able to manage an additional part-time job, and maintain your current quality of life.

While you will indeed be required to invest more time in creating an additional stream of income—Wholesale2b offers an legitimate stream of secondary income.

Your Wholesale2b Online Storefront

Wholesale2b allows absolutely everyone direct access to premium product suppliers who sell products from every category and genre imaginable. What makes Wholesale2b so unique, is that it is a dropship business.

If you are unfamiliar with dropship businesses, they are businesses that allow you access to wholesale pricing without pre-ordering merchandise—or keeping any merchandise on hand! Instead, you choose from the over 1.5 million products available from Wholesale2b suppliers—and list them to your online storefront with the mark up you desire. As soon as a purchase is made, you place your order with your supplier—and pay only for the price of the order placed.

To further simplify the process, you can have the products you wish to sell pushed directly to eBay or Amazon. To really get the sales rolling in, you can even launch and independent ecommerce website!

While your Wholesale2b business will indeed require an investment in learning the ropes, once you get the hang of things—processing your orders will take less than 1 hour of your time each day.

No, you won’t get rich over night by launching an online store, but with dedication you can successfully create a secondary stream of income—that if properly managed, will help you to achieve the financial freedom you desire!
