The Drop Ship Source Directory

The First, the Original & the Best!
You might see others advertising Drop Ship Directories online, but we were the first! Our first Drop Ship Source Directory was created back before we even became We have changed our Directory name a few times over the years, but one thing always remains constant…

Our passion for creating the BEST Dropship and Wholesale Directory for Online Retailers.

Brief History of the Dropshipping Directory

Our Founder and CEO, Chris Malta, wanted to start an online store in the early 90's. He found that it was difficult to locate wholesale suppliers that were willing to dropship products and work with online retailers. Selling products online was still a fairly new concept at the time!

After locating and calling many wholesale companies, he created his own list of suppliers that he could work with and supply his store with wholesale products so he didn't have to hold inventory. After writing an article online about his frustrations for finding dropshipping wholesalers to work with, he was approached by other retailers that wanted his list, and that is how the Drop Ship Source Directory was started.

Our Drop Ship Directory Today

We have grown significantly since that humble beginning of a small list of wholesale suppliers, to a large online Directory of WBI Certified® Wholesalers that will dropship or sell in light bulk quantities.

But we don't stop there! We also have a lot of education on our site about selling products online, working with wholesale suppliers, built in market research information and more.

We are still growing! We understand what online retailers need and work hard to fulfill that. We add new suppliers, brands and products every business day for our members and the Directory changes based on our member’s needs. Selling products online isn't going to go away and the service that we offer to online retailers will keep growing and changing with it.

Finding the Drop Ship Directory

It's no longer called the Drop Ship Source Directory, since we have added additional areas of product sourcing in our online Directory rather than just dropshippers. But finding those legitimate dropshippers is one of our first priorities. Who knows better how to find Drop Ship Suppliers for a Drop Ship Directory, than the company that started it all?

WE are The BEST place to find these suppliers, and you can find them in our Directory of WBI Certified® Wholesalers.

It's not easy, but since 1999 we have put together the internet's largest, most comprehensive Directory of Certified Dropshippers and Wholesalers you can find anywhere.
