I own a webshop in golf apparel and have had some trouble with finding the right suppliers for a new product on alibaba, without spending too much on research & development and shooting arrows hopefully landing on the right supplier I found out the following:
Apperantly all import data in the USA is public so I thought I'd use that to search for my competitors' suppliers, I have checked out this website:
Though the data on this website seems outdated,
Then there are a few subscription based tools that seem to do the same, does anybody know one of these and can you share your experience?
Id be using it to source for one product, though if I purchase a subscription I'd probably use it to source for more products I want to sell in the future..
If you have other sourcing strategies that work well for you feel free to mention!
Hey there @Luuk_Harleman! Gabby here from Spocket's Community Engagement team.
I know it's been a long time since you posted this inquiry, and being that no one has replied, I think I can still help you out. Quick question though, what was the result of your search for suppliers of golf apparel? Were you able to find some?
In any case, when I came across your post, I immediately did a search on Spocket's catalog to see if suppliers of golf apparel are available in our selections. I found items from Milky Way and Olive Pandora. Let me know if this style of golf apparel is what you're looking for:
I do realize though that we have an extremely limited selection of items and suppliers, so I'm kind of glad that I came across your post! If you're interested, I can process a request to our Suppliers team to possibly source out more suppliers of golf apparel so you can have more choices. Let me know!
In the meantime, I'd like to invite you to check out Spocket's website so you can learn more about how e-commerce works with us. Just a quick overview, Spocket is a dropshipping app that you can integrate with Shopify. The platform offers various suppliers from mainly the US and the EU - so I assure you that the quality of the items on our catalog are topnotch, and due to the geographic origin, shipping usually takes 3-5 days. When you do get to explore our site, please feel free to write me a message back here if you have questions. Cheers!
