Hey @olivierloski,

 

It sounds like you are wanting to set up a dropshipping website, is that correct? This will allow you to sell items from the other website without having to physically own or handle the inventory.

 

The first step to creating a dropshipping website is to decide what niche you want to focus on. Look for high-demand and low-competition niches that have profitable opportunities. Try to choose a niche that you understand and care about. 

 

You then need to find a supplier that meets your specific needs and goals, depending on the niche and the types of products you’re looking to sell. Some of the popular and reliable dropshipping suppliers include: 

  1. AliExpress
  2. Alibaba
  3. SaleHoo
  4. Worldwide Brands

Supplier directories are also a convenient way to quickly search for and/or browse a large number of dropshipping companies in one place and are great for brainstorming product ideas or niches to enter.
