    There are serveral wholesale websites to get your merchandise from,

    The top 3 websites I would recommend you look at are
    - Alibaba
    - Aliexpress
    - Dhgate

    These 3 websites are a great source to start off finding good products to start off with. Just becareful when it comes to selling VERO and High risk items. Also make sure you know how ebay and paypal works along with the fees. When selling a product on ebay you are looking at 12.9% + .30 of your total sale (ebay charges 10% + Paypal charges 2.9% + .30) plus shipping and the product expense cost.

    I would of course try to stay away from those sites because most of them sell knock offs, and you really don't want to get in trouble! There are really two ways that you could get in trouble! One would be that they catch the package in the mail, and your address can become black listed, and another would be the customer knows your item is a knock off, or VERO takes you out, and your eBay account is gone!

    I would really make sure you know how eBay works, and how stealth works, and then choose your items to sell after that! You can buy from these sites, but make sure they are not name brand at all.

    Stay safe out there :) Let me know if you need help with anything

    If you know what your doing, this is a great source to get products. Not every product on this website is a knockoff. I would love to know your source of products since you didnt list any. All you seem to do is argue with people but never give your own advice. I would love to know where you get your products from

    I work in niche markets that last 3-5 Months at a time. I also GIVE ALOT of advice. One thing being the services that Arkmay asked about! i use this service a lot actually and have for over 7 months. You will find many good items to sell from there. I have personal suppliers that are not on websites.... why dont you please give correct advice, if any at all :)

    Thank you!

    I think EbayUltimate is making a valid point. Well, the sites mentioned are good especially if you know what and how to source for your items.

    CORRECT! But it sounds to me this is a NEW user!! I've seen to many people jump into these sites, and get burn because they didn't know what they were really looking for! My advice is always to try and stay clear of these sites, and more so if your just starting out! But if you have a great supplier with a niche product, and you aren't ripping anyone off in the process! GO FOR IT! :)

    Those website is a great source for reselling products at eBay PERIOD !
    I think 99.9% of BHW users start from there and then got connection to other suppliers that aren't on those website.
    It looks like you always want to give advice and help but yet you don't recommend on those websites? something smell fishy, well, i dont know what's going on in your privet message but for me it looks like you want to help people just for them to buy products from you

    P.s
    You made a post about how to see if product is VERO or not so i'm pretty sure that you sold and maybe still sell knock off (so why you against those website? )

    Your correct! I have bought from these websites ( years ago 3+) , and that is how I know! I also said in my thread that I made it one of my goals to not rip people off, and after eBay was taking me down I found out why, because the items were not legit. After this I started a business where I marketed myself to friends and family. People all around me were having me sell there stuff, and also just giving me stuff that they didn't want anymore. At this moment I thought I had a real business. Money was coming in, and I was also able to give money back to the people who gave me the items. This felt the best. Then eBay SHUT down my personal account. I didn't know why, or what I had done wrong. I then started reading BHW, and other forums (didn't ever make a account, had nothing to offer but my story). Once I learned the basic things I applied them, and failed again. After doing this a few times I finally got it down. I knew how to make strong stealth accounts, and people giving me items to sell also gave me an idea on how to get items! I then applied myself, and was able to make online eBay my full time income.

    I have never once had anyone sell my products, or tried to sell something when asking someone to pm me. I learned so much from BHW years ago, and other forums and it's just my time to give back, and help people not make the SAME mistakes I made when going into business. If something smells fishy it's because of the way your thinking, like someone always has there intentions, and they come first. Will I later sell on BHW ..maybe! But what I really want to do is just help people, without people pointing fingers. I think people who sell there products online should do so, but I also think they should give back FIRST, donate, and then go on to help people while marketing there services. I feel BHW has kinda turned into the Wide Wide West or something.

    Any successful person selling niche products aren't just going to give you there source, and saturate the market more then what it is. I don't use websites for my source of products, only people I have been in contact with for a while. I give people advice, and point them in the right direction, or even give them ideas (such as local stores, cross checking amazon's prices with eBays, etc), but I can't hold your hand.

    And as for my Thread I made about VERO PRODUCTS and how to know if they are? I know people are going to do what they are going to do as far as selling products that are Name Brand. I never once said get those products from here or here. Even LEGIT ITEMS have been taken down, even with the paper work. I made that THREAD to HELP people save hundreds of dollars in what could be costly mistakes...

    I hope I've made myself clear. If anyone needs help shoot me a message!

    Why do you enjoy arguing with people so much. It is a good source for products as well, your wrong when saying these things and you make yourself look dumb. You do know they can buy non-brand name products there right?

    Are you serious? I have said many times in other post that you can get non brand products there? I'm trying to help new sellers from making mistakes: you can't read very well can you. In other post you have given terrible advice, like " getting your money out by sending it to another account and linking it".

    If you would like me to update your "free stealth guide" I can? Lol

    The bottom line is those website are good for those who just start selling with ebay.
    Of Course they have to be aware because there is a lot of scammers and a lot of knockoff but everybody need to fall from time to time in order to get up and be stronger.

    As long as you don't give people other place to source their product, you can't tell people not to use those website (again, just for the start, after some time they will understand where and with who they should deal with and how to contact big suppliers in their area)

    Exactly, some suppliers there are very good if you find the right product. To say that these websites are a terrible source of wholesale is not true at all. Especially If I can show you top rated seller status on several ebay account from using these sources.

    I actually have helped many people who message me 1 on 1. It helps me zero in on what exactly they need help with. I help them find good suppliers, and even better drop shippers.

    oh, and before someone says anything, I give them a "method" on how to find them. Not hooking them up with anyone I know or making any gain/profit off it. It is the same method I have used to gain all my suppliers/drop shippers.

    So why don't you open a thread and share everyone with your "method"?
