In this article, I’m going to pen down a list of dropshipping suppliers in North America and the EU.
Why use a dropshipping supplier? The benefits of using a dropshipping supplier is fast shipping and private labeling amongst others.
Basically using a dropshipping supplier who is based in the same location as your target audience could mean that you get products delivered to your customers in that location even faster.
Most suppliers also offer private labelling service which means putting your brand on the product packages before they are shipped to your customers.
There are dropshipping suppliers in most countries, your job is to find a winning product then contact suppliers who sell those products.
A quick search on the internet can show you a multiple list of suppliers but they are not exhaustive.
My recommendation is if you find a company that has the kind of product that you want in stock, even if the company does not expressly say that they support dropshipping, do not be afraid to send them an email and propose a dropshipping deal as there is no harm in trying.
How to use automate dropshipping using suppliers that do not offer API integrations
If a supplier does not offer API integrations with your ecommerce platform and you’re wondering how to automate your dropshipping workflow using that supplier; the answer is simple.
You can agree with the supplier to add them as a staff on your e-commerce platform with limited permission.
Giving them permissions that bothers on order Fulfillment can enable the supplier to get automated emails of your product orders and fulfill orders.

How to verify legit dropshipping suppliers
It’s good to be cautious when starting to work with a supplier.
I’d advise ordering a sample product from a supplier “anonymously” to evaluate the quality of their service.
Also it’s recommended to make payment through trusted payment processors that offer buyer protection. For example; PayPal. This is so that if anything goes wrong with the transaction you would be able to file claims or chargebacks to get justifiable refunds.

In any case, if you already know any company that supplies products that you would love to dropship but do not expressly state that they support dropshipping on their website, you can try to email them and propose a dropshipping deal.
There is no harm in trying and if they do not have integrations with your e-commerce platform, you can add them as a staff to your e-commerce store with limited permission. More so, if you aren’t sure that the company or agent is reputable, I will advice you to only pay them through a trusted escrow for example; Paypal Goods and Services.

If you have an idea for dropshipping a unique item and you’re sure no supplier sells it. You can go to sites like Aliexpress and ask a supplier in your niche, if they can improve an existing product or create a new one to meet your specification. Usually they would require an MOQ (minimum order quantity) to be able to design a new product or redesign an existing one for you. I do not recommend this if you’re only starting to dropship, you should try to source an existing product that you can sell profitably.
It is easier to work with a single supplier than multiple suppliers because communication is faster and you can benefit from the perks that come with selling high numbers like discount offer and net 30 payment much faster with one supplier than when you are splitting orders across multiple suppliers.
It’s allowed to work with multiple suppliers and I encourage it when you are already getting a large number of orders in your store.
Having a main supplier and an alternative supplier for urgent days, is the most recommended option.
Yes, you can use more than one dropshipping supplier app on Shopify, it shouldn’t conflict but if you experience any issues, you should contact Shopify support.
Depending on what e-commerce platform you use and what supplier you want to use, there are usually app integration which you can install on your store to automate your order Fulfillment process, however if your supplier doesn’t have any app/plugin integration, most platforms (i.e Shopify, Woocommerce, Ecwid etc) allows you to add the supplier as a staff on your store with order permission, so that whenever you get an order, the Supplier gets an automatic order email notification and can fulfill it.
