Sophia here from Shopify. There are dropshipping apps in the Shopify App Store that merchants will use to find products, so becoming a supplier through those services could be your best option if you want Shopify merchants to discover your product. Oberlo, for example, is one of the most popular dropshipping apps for Shopify merchants. Oberlo connects merchants with the AliExpress marketplace, and you can become a supplier on AliExpress by signing up here.
Shopify merchants may also be reading The Ultimate Guide to Dropshipping, which features a whole chapter on Finding and Working With Suppliers. Resources like this will be helpful for you to review so that you know what retailers are looking for and can ensure your business meets those needs. The guide also links to some external resources where you might be able to become a supplier. I hope that helps!
With ShipperHQ, you can manage shipping rates from multiple warehouses or dropship vendors. You can automate which origin certain products are shipped from, based on the fewest number of origins, origin nearest to a customer or zone restrictions for a given location.
You can also specify where a product is located, such as making all products available via all warehouses or only certain ones. The list goes on and on. You can read more about it on our blog here about multi-location shipping.
The best way to figure out your shipping strategy is by connecting with our sales team. They would be happy to discuss further and have experience working with thousands of different retailers big or small. You can also sign up for a free 30-day trial and see how ShipperHQ works for yourself.
Hi @NR1! Gabby here from the Community Engagement team at Spocket.

dropshipping apps offer a wide range of verified suppliers from all over the world to be at your fingertips, which is extremely convenient and helpful. Said like some folks, you can start a dropshipping business tomorrow with shopify and an oberlo installed!
Nonetheless, it is not that easy.
The apps are helpful, but the information in those apps is not enough to determine the reliability of one dropshipping business. For example, they hardly have such important data about the suppliers: Shipment preference, order policies, after-sale services, etc.
