So I'm new to Shopify and the business world in general. Just set up my first LLC this past week. I've been scouring the Internet for reputable wholesalers for skate gear (decks/trucks/wheels/bearings/etc), but so far I've only found places that do B2B with businesses that have a physical storefront (brick and mortar). I've seen countless online-only skate shops, and I'm at a loss for how they're actually getting their product. I have a friend in the industry with a physical storefront who is able to get product and have it sent to me, but my goal as a business owner is to be self-sufficient, and relying on a middleman to get my product is far from that. Anyone happen to have any tips or leads on where I can find a skate wholesaler that deals with online retailers? So far, I've come up blank. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi If you are looking for someone to source you some Skateboard/longboard I suggest you try Fulfillman since they can source any kinds of products from China and send it around the world in just 7-10 days. I using them right now and currently they provide good quality winning products for me to sell. https://fulfillmancom.rurl.me/fulfillmandropshipping
Please check Eastern Skate Supply
They were actually the first place I checked. Unfortunately, they only do business with brick and mortar skate shops. I contacted them and was told I couldn't do business with them since I'm an online-only retailer. I would absolutely LOVE to use them since they have everything I'm looking for, but they aren't an option for me.
