I recently got an email from a subscriber in the UK asking about the new dropship / wholesale product sourcing service from Worldwide Brands called OneSource. He wrote:
Thanks for the attached info. I have been looking at Worldwide Brands packages for a while now.
However, the reason I have held back is because I live in the UK (England) and am aware that a large percentage of the directory I will not be able to trade with due to trade restrictions outside the US.
Are you aware of or do you have any suggestions for similar sourcing methods for the U.K.?
To answer this question properly, I went straight to the source - OneSource. Here is their reply:
The answer to the question is ….
We do list suppliers that are located in other countries.
However, the bulk of the suppliers we list are in the US. A large percentage of the US suppliers will work with retailers that are outside the US. But keep in mind, that shipping costs would be exorbitant to any customers that you have that are not in the US, unless you purchase in small bulk quantities and ship the products out yourself.
We list on the supplier contact pages whether the supplier would setup an account with you or not, by placing the statement “Will setup accounts with International Retailers” in the comment blocks. Those suppliers are more than happy to work with you.
To get an idea of the percentages, over 50% of the suppliers that drop ship and over 65% of the suppliers that Light Bulk will work with you. That is a grand total of over 2000 suppliers to choose from.
If there are certain product types that you are wanting to sell, please be sure to contact our customer service department to inquire if we have a supplier that will work with you that carries that type of product.
Customer Support - Worldwide Brands.
So here’s the skinny…
There’s more than enough companies listed with OneSource that will work with you if you live outside the US.
Do not let that stop you from taking the next step in your eBay business!
Did you notice the last paragraph of OneSource’s response? Here it is again:
“If there are certain product types that you are wanting to sell, please be sure to contact our customer service department to inquire if we have a supplier that will work with you that carries that type of product.”
Have you ever heard of a company willing to help like that?
When was the last time you heard a company say ‘Call us up and we’ll help?’
That’s part of what makes Worldwide Brands the leader, and their OneSource a great service. They are there to help you succeed in your eBay / web business.
