Hello, I'm new to shopify. I want to know how to find products to sell on my store.

Where are the suppliers or do I need to go outside of shopify to find what I want to sell?

Hey, @SarahAlison.

 

Thanks for reaching out! I'm excited to hear that you're thinking about what products to sell in your store. I'm happy to provide some suggestions. 

 

To gather more context, did you have any particular type of products in mind? Are you looking for a manufacturer for custom products specifically? Typically, merchants will either find a manufacturer, a wholesale supplier, or partner with a dropshipper. 

 

For now, I will focus on the dropshipping business model, as it allows you to start an online business and sell products without having to purchase the stock before the customer makes a purchase! When you dropship, your customer will make a purchase on your storefront and in turn, the product is purchased from the third party and shipped directly to your customer. This is a great strategy for eliminating the initial cost of inventory before your products have started selling. 

 

Oberlo is one of our merchant's favorite dropshipping options! It is one of the easiest dropshipping processes for Shopify stores. When a customer buys something in your store, Oberlo fulfills the order automatically. All you have to do is double-check that the order details are correct before placing the order. The product then ships from the dropshipping supplier to the customer, no matter where they are in the world. Feel free to learn more here: What is Dropshipping? 

 

Another popular option is to use a Print-On-Demand service. This is similar to dropshipping as it is a fulfillment model where you don’t hold your own inventory. However, with print-on-demand options, you can customize your products with your own images, text, logos, etc. In this article, Top 10 Print-on-Demand Companies, you will find a list of sites that are free to start with and require you to pay only for the cost of the product and shipping after someone has placed an order. 

 

If you have any questions, please let me know! I will look forward to hearing back from you regarding the type of products you are hoping to sell.
