One of the Methods – Liquidation Buying

October 15th, 2021

There are 5 main legitimate Product Sourcing Methods; Dropshipping, Light Bulk Wholesale, Large Volume, Liquidation Buying & Overstock/Closeout Buying.

This article we will focus on Liquidation Buying.

What is Liquidation Buying?

person under boxes for liquidation buying

Liquidated products are things that whoever has them doesn’t want them any longer. They don’t want them so badly, that they are willing to sell them to little or no profit and sometimes even at a loss just to get rid of them. 

Sometimes the products are brand new because the manufacturer made too many. Or they got stuck with extras because it didn’t sell well.

From our experience, most liquidated products are still brand new in the box, but there can be exceptions. So always be careful to check out what you can before you buy.

The Biggest Problems with Buying Liquidations

  1. You can’t inspect all the products.
    You can’ t pre-test and inspect the products. Most are sealed. So you can’t check out the quality of the products first.
  2. You have to buy in pallet loads.
    You typically have to buy the entire pallet load of products. Whether it’s hundreds of the same thing or a mixture of items in a similar category to just random things piled onto a pallet.
  3. No returns. No guarantees.
    If products aren’t as described, or they don’t work or you find that they are all broken and can’t be re-sold, that is on you and you just have to take the loss. There are no guarantees or returns. It is a gamble. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.

Finding Real Liquidators

We have been locating and certifying real wholesale suppliers for over 20 years now and that includes liquidation suppliers. 

Liquidators come and go and it all depends on what is going on in the market. So when we find a legitimate liquidation company we add it to the liquidation section of the Directory. 

We list suppliers in there by category. So make sure to have an idea in mind! But if the risk isn’t for you, then consider Light Bulk

One of the Methods – Dropshipping

October 1st, 2021

There are 5 main legitimate Product Sourcing Methods; Dropshipping, Light Bulk Wholesale, Large Volume, Liquidation Buying & Overstock/Closeout Buying.

This article we will focus on Dropshipping.

Why Dropshipping?

supplier packaging products for dropshipping

First real quick.. a dropshipper is a wholesale supplier that will break apart a case of products, and repackage into individual boxes and ship to your end customer for you. So basically they are your wholesaler and fulfillment center all in one. 

But why dropshipping? It is the cheapest and easiest way to get into selling products online. Simple as that.

You are buying at wholesale prices, but it’s not the BEST wholesale prices. Wholesale works in tiers. The more you buy, the cheaper each individual item gets. So when you are buying one at a time, your wholesale price isn’t as great as if you were buying say…12 at a time. 

But if you are new to online selling and want to try out different products or find things with good enough profit margins, but can’t buy minimum order amounts and don’t want to stock and ship the products then dropshipping is for you.  

Dropshipping Has Limits

Many and I mean MANY wholesale suppliers will NOT dropship, but are willing to accept minimum orders of $500 or often less than that. So light bulk is a popular area in our B2B Wholesaler Directory. 

So once you find products that sell well with dropshipping, consider purchasing in bulk to get even more profit. 

Also remember, there is not a Dropshipping supplier for every product on the planet. You can’t get ANYTHING drop shipped. It’s not possible because many brands aren’t even looking to add any more retailers! 

So don’t get your heart set on something first. Do your research and figure out what you should be selling. Find a problem and offer solutions to that problem. 

Finding Real Dropshippers

For over 20 years, we here at Worldwide Brands have been finding and certifying wholesale suppliers for online retailers. We started back in the late 90’s with a product called The Drop Ship Source Directory and we were the first to provide a directory of legitimate dropshipping suppliers for online retailers.

Now we have included the other types of product sourcing to our Directory so you can grow your business and the Directory goes along with you and can provide you benefit during all stages of your business.

One of the Methods – Light Bulk Wholesale

September 24th, 2021

There are 5 main legitimate Product Sourcing Methods; Light Bulk Wholesale, Dropshipping, Large Volume, Liquidation Buying & Overstock/Closeout Buying.

This article we will focus on Light Bulk Wholesale.

Light Bulk Wholesale Buying

putting together a light bulk wholesale order on a pallet

Light Bulk is a term coined here at Worldwidebrands.com. We were looking for a term to describe lower, more affordable minimum orders from Wholesalers for online retailers. The words “Light Bulk” just seemed to stick with us around the office!

The traditional way of purchasing wholesale is truck loads or pallet loads of merchandise. This is so large stores can stock their shelves & branches of their stores. But also to have those all important backups if the product sells out quickly.

But we also find a supplier will also have a sweet spot for a lower buy in to their products (or they are willing to go there for our members!). It means that you can purchase $500 worth or many times way less than that and have those boxes shipped to you. You then simply re-package and ship to to your customers.

Perfect for Online Retailers

Light bulk wholesale is a great product sourcing method for online retailers. Especially if you sell in price driven markets like eBay, Amazon or other third party sites.

You have to get the better wholesale prices to compete, and dropshipping doesn’t allow that for you. So light bulk is the next step up so you can get those products that you want to sell, and still compete with other retailers.

What We Do for Our Members

Here at WorldwideBrands.com, one of the things we do for our members is negotiate lower minimum orders. We come across suppliers often with $1000 or more minimums, and they agree to lower to $500 or less for our members only. So these special suppliers won’t be found any where else!

Understanding Middlemen

August 27th, 2021
middleman in hood using a computer

We will talk about middlemen, but I’m sad to say, but unfortunately there are still get rich schemes that can be found online. Buy this and you will earn thousands overnight! Purchase this pre-built website and you will be an instant success! These schemes continue to run, because people keep buying in to them. Honestly, there is no such thing as a get rich overnight program, site, eBook, set of videos or anything that will instantly make you a millionaire. If that were the case, wouldn’t a heck of a lot more people in your circle of family and friends be millionaires? Statistically speaking anyway. If it were that easy….?

The same is true in the product sourcing or wholesale products arena. There are traps that you can fall into that will end up costing you more than what you will make in return. Let’s talk about Middlemen.

What are Middlemen?

Some people think that a middleman is someone other than the manufacturer of a product. Which is simply not true. There is a legitimate wholesale chain and while some companies bypass the use of distributors or wholesalers and work with retailers directly, many brands rely on these other companies so they can focus mainly on making the products.

So anytime that we talk about Middlemen, we are referring to companies that pretend to be the wholesaler of products, but in fact have products dropshipped from the real manufacturer or distributor. So these middlemen don’t have warehouses and stock and ship products. They have a fancy backend and tools that makes you think you are ordering from them.

Avoid Middlemen for these reasons:
1. Increased wholesale prices (so the middleman can earn per product)
2. Monthly or Annual membership fees (just for the right to resell their “products” and use their tools)

When looking for real wholesalers to work with, always start with the manufacturer and then follow the wholesale chain. ” Tisha Hedges, Director of Operations for WorldwideBrands.com

Finding Real Wholesalers and Dropshippers

avoiding middlemen and finding real  dropshippers and wholesalers

We have been finding and verifying wholesalers and dropshippers since 1999. We know what to look for and what to recognize as a legitimate company that falls correctly into the supply chain.

We also know how to drill down to find the right companies to contact for requested product types and we aren’t afraid to ask questions! And boy do we have a lot of questions!

We do these thing so you don’t have to. So check out our Wholesaler and Dropshipper Directory. But we get it, you might want to try to do this on your own. So here are some tips:

1. Most real dropshippers don’t advertise that they dropship. So avoid typing “Dropshippers” into a search engine.
2. Most real dropshippers do not charge a monthly or annual fee for the right to resell their products.
3. Real dropshipping suppliers work directly with the manufacturer or authorized distributor. So start with the manufacturer and contact them to ask about their dealer program or process.
4. Real dropshipping suppliers stock their own inventory. So if they say they have it for sale, then they also have it in stock, in their own warehouse and ready to ship. So ask any potential suppliers about their warehouse.

“Always come armed with your series of questions you want to ask a supplier, so you get them all out of the way the first time.” Tisha Hedges, Director of Operations, WorldwideBrands.com

Local Sourcing to a Real Business

July 24th, 2021
local sourcing at a garage sale

It used to be that most sellers would start off with things they could find locally. Local sourcing was very valuable! Especially eBay sellers! Scouring yard sales, antique malls, flea markets, second hand shops, pawn shops and more to find that amazing little nugget that is going to make you way more than you paid for it!

I know! I was one of them! My sister and I had a little eBay side business way back in 1998. We had tons of fun going to yard sales & estate auctions and reselling things from people that had no idea that their item was worth way more than they were selling it for.

But that was just a fun little side hustle. We weren’t in it to make millions of dollars.. But we were in it for the thrill of finding something for $1.00 and selling it for $100.00!

We didn’t always find something at every stop. So some days we wouldn’t have anything new to offer and other times we overpaid because we thought it would go for more online. Remember, this was also back before smartphones and being able to look things up at a moments notice. This simply was not a sustainable business model. But also even more so because the climate of online sales was taking a drastic change and if you wanted to keep up, you too had to make a drastic change.

Moving Beyond Local Sourcing

moving beyond local sourcing to wholesale suppliers

The biggest problems with local sourcing are 1. it’s very time consuming 2. product selection is limited and 3. product availability is not consistent. So when you are ready to move your business to the next level, then you need to find legitimate wholesalers to work with.

You can still do your local sourcing, but if you want to grow your business, you need products you can sell over and over and over and that’s where wholesale suppliers come into the picture.

But not just any wholesale supplier, a factory authorized distributor or wholesaler is where you should focus your time and energy. These companies get their products directly from the manufacturer. When you are so close to the top of the wholesale chain, you get better prices & better service. These companies have to maintain the values and conditions that the manufacturers have set on the products and it is their responsibility to ensure that the retailers are also following those guidelines.

So remember, that there are MANY brands a newer online seller simply cannot sell. Large brand companies already either have ALL of the retailers they want selling their products or their minimums are so high that a small retailer simply cannot buy in to even try selling the products.

Stop Spinning Your Wheels Hearing No’s

You can most definitely find genuine, legitimate wholesalers on your own, but why not leave it to the professionals? It’s a time consuming process, full of rejection and fact finding. You want to make sure that you are working with the best supplier possible for those products and so that supplier research for any business, new or established, is extremely important.

We’ve already been doing the work for you for over 20 years.

We have been providing the Directory of Certified Wholesaler and Dropshippers to online retailers (and offline retailers) for a very long time.

Finding and verifying the legitimacy of every single supplier before adding them to our Directory is what we are most proud of and do extremely well. We do not rely on search engine searches for “wholesale” or “dropship” or other directories to do the work for us. Digging through the trenches and utilizing trade shows and other means to locate the real manufacturers and factory authorized distributors of the products for our members is what we spend our time on.

We want the best of the best in the Directory because we only want the best for our members. ” Tisha Hedges, Director of Operations

We then reach out to those companies and start the process of learning more about them and if they could be a fit. If they qualify, we will add them to the Directory for our members to find.

What is Product Sourcing?

July 16th, 2021
person product sourcing on a computer

Product Sourcing simply means, “Finding products to sell through your business.” This, of course to us, refers to buying products at real wholesale prices, and then selling them online for a profit. Product Sourcing is something that truly successful online retailers take very seriously. It’s a cornerstone of their success.

What does proper Product Sourcing do for my online business?

Among other things, the internet is a wonderful eCommerce marketplace. It’s a tremendous business opportunity for very little cost. Many people start small online, then go on to earn impressive full time incomes.

However, many people starting out run into issues they don’t understand and then give up because they don’t have the right information they need to run their business competitively.

If you dream of owning a successful online business, you CAN do it. There are a few things you really need to understand though, and Product Sourcing is one of them.

Proper Product Sourcing

Doing your product sourcing properly, does several things for you and your online business;

– Allows you to earn the highest possible profit margins
– You can be flexible in the products you offer to your customers
– Allows you to effectively compete with other retailers’ prices

Remember that the internet is a price driven market. If you are not doing your Product Sourcing the right way, you’ll find that there are many other online retailers that offer the same products as you do, but at lower prices. You won’t be able to compete with them. Those sellers who offer lower prices ARE making a profit. The difference is that they are probably paying less for the products they sell because they understand how to Source Products the right way. In case you need to replace any electronic component gather everything you need from this website’s catalog.

Up Next…

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will talk about the different aspects of product sourcing. How to find products to sell and what to avoid. So stay tuned!

But if you are ready to get started NOW with REAL Wholesalers with REAL Wholesale prices, then get access to our Directory today!

Find over 8000 real wholesale suppliers. Thousands of dropshippers. The suppliers represent more than 17 MILLION product types, so there is something for everyone!
