I think I’ve found a very good wholesale source for many of you readers! SaleHoo.com is similar to Liquidation.com or GlobalSources in that they list many other wholesale sources. However, SaleHoo.com is built on a community of users that comment on and review all of the wholesalers. Actually, the moderators at SaleHoo.com even secretly purchase from the suppliers so they can write their own reviews. **Update: Information added about the SaleHoo Research Labs below. This is a new feature that you’re going to love!
1. What is SaleHoo.com?
SaleHoo.com is a members-only directory of wholesale sources. They have thousands of wholesalers, drop shippers, liquidation companies, and manufacturers that you can purchase from directly.
2. Member’s Forum
A great feature of being a SaleHoo member is that you can ask the community for advice before you make a purchase from any of the suppliers. You can ask questions about suppliers, products, or even the quality of products coming from various countries. With this safety net, you can be more confident that you won’t get scammed or ripped off. And as always, if you have any other questions, you could always leave it in the comments here. I love to help out other small business owners. (And those hoping to get into online business.)
Update: What is the SaleHoo.com Research Labs?
The Research Labs section is a great new addition to SaleHoo, because it helps take some of the guesswork out of choosing a product to sell. You can enter a keyword and the research labs will give you a ton of great information about that product. The information is geard toward selling on ebay, and they give you information such as Average Sale Price, Sell-Through Rate, Best day to end your auction, most common auction duration, and a rating of how much competition you’ll face. They also have charts where you can compare sales numbers of different products against each other. This tool is a great start for any of your product research.
I’d like to include more information in this review of SaleHoo.com, but they have a sales page that really lays it out for you. After you’ve skimmed the sales page and testimonials, I highly recommend the 3-minute tour. They have blue links every so often on their sales page. Just click one of those to review the highlights of the site.
