    I am looking to change my supplier, the only suppliers I seem to find at the moment are wholesalers since the product is very small and cheap.

    Is cost a factor (i.e. you don't have the capital to purchase the minimum order) or shipping?? I am a little lost as to why you would not want to purchase lighters in bulk and ship them yourself.

    Hey,Terry.
    I am new to the forum here.
    I don't know your business scale now, but trust me, most of the wholesalers will not provide dropship for you if ur business is big enough.
    We assume that you've got 3 orders(pieces) per day, you got a supplier gain profit like 7HK$ for each order,while he or she could make 4 or even 2 HK$ for those retailers sell 20 pcs! They know the caculations here! The retail price of lighters is a huge gap here, 2USD-11USD, you need to tell yourself the price range you plan to sell,and the quality is much the same,according to my own experience.

    And I do't agree with poindexter
    here, purchase in bulk is a bad idea, extremely for guys run their own site and sell items online,I don't doubt about Terry to sell the lighters, but there is a risk.And capital is like a current, you are always making some thing if you keep it going on out there,no need to concern about the money once you start.

    So, all you need to do now is to keep looking for your supplier, have a test about the delivery time and method ,change if need to.
    I gonna show the some pics of lighters if possible. The price is low enough.

    Cost really isn't a factor, space is I really have no room at the moment to store any supplies maybe I'll take a look into it anyways. I know I'll make way more profit buying bulk though plus shipping would be quicker.
