How to Find U.S. Dropshipping Suppliers

A ton of people have been asking me how to find American based suppliers that are willing to dropship. People have asked me to give them supplier names, directories, or recomend them a distributor. Now that I've made enough money to retire and have sold both of my dropshipping stores, I can publicly give away all of the secrets as I'm not afraid of competition when starting new stores, but just like any business worth running, it's not as simple as just finding a supplier. In this post I'm going to share with you the pros and cons of using a U.S. based dropshipper and even give you a list of ten suppliers that you can use as a starting point.

My previous video and blog post shared the pros and cons of dropshipping from China with Aliexpress as it's been a hot topic lately. This post is going to dive in deep and show you exactly how I find suppliers in the USA including the pros and cons of using online retail arbitrage, ebay, amazon, dropshipping directories, distributors, wholesalers, and going direct from manufacture as an authorized dealer. Read this post, watch the embedded tutorial video, and feel free to share this post as I think it'll answer a ton of questions.

Watch the Video:

I was originally going to break this video into 3-4 sections, as it's a lot of information to consume, but decided to leave it as one, super long tutorial as it's important to understand the core principles and the why, before you jump into signing up with a supplier. 

This video is part of the Dropship Lab paid course but I wanted to give everyone access to this part for free as there is so much crappy information out there on Youtube, and not enough free advice from people who have actually done it before. 

Download the Slides

I've made the slides from the video available to download here as a PDF so the links will be clickable and the PDF easily shareable. There are 15 slides in total which are discussed in detail in the video above.

If you haven't watched it yet, scroll back up and do so now as the slides may not make sense if you don't. =) 

The Supplier List:

As discussed in the video above, these examples are real businesses that dropship. You can use them as a starting point to get an idea of what dropshippers look like and how to find and get approved by them. However, as I mentioned in the video, I wouldn't suggest anyone waste time building a business around any of these suppliers as their will be so much low level competition, it wont' be profitable.

Instead, use what I've shown you in the video as well as what Anton teaches in his dropshipping course to find unique, untapped suppliers that are willing to dropship but don't use the words anywhere on their website, making them hard to find online. Use that as your advantage to find highly profitable niches like I have.

My best advice to everyone looking to start a dropshipping store and wanting to find good suppliers is do what's difficult. Everyone else is jumping into wanting to be a dropshipper by doing the easiest things like using aliexpress, copying other people's niches, or using directories. If you want to make over $200,000 in take home profit like I did from drop shipping, take the extra steps and do what's difficult instead. 

The barrier to entry will be a lot higher if you don't take shortcuts. You can read this post on how I started. I wrote it a few years ago but have updated it to make it still relevant today. If I were to start over again, this is exactly how I would have done it all over again. 

Best of luck to everyone in your dropshipping journey! Feel free to leave a comment below with questions and i'm happy to help!

Warm Regards,

Johnny FD
