      Hi Robert,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      You might already have done this, but we suggest you start researching which type of accessories and also which brands are selling best online (On eBay for example). Also have a look at the prices other sellers are offering, this will help you when you are sourcing the best supplier for your business. You want to understand if the prices your supplier offers are going to be competitive enough to make a good profit.

      A great tool that can help you find best selling products, and tells you how you should list those items to make the most profit is Terapeak.

      The highest profit margins are gained from reselling surplus and overstock lots, these lots are sold at discounted prices, so consider sourcing these golf balls and accessories from wholesale liquidators. You will not be able to source new line stock from these suppliers and you have to except the condition of these lots.

      A great way to get your hands on new stock is buy sourcing clearance stock from the brands themselves or from retailers of golf balls and accessories. You could also contact the brands to ask them what you could do to become an official reseller of their products.

      Using a drop shipper to source you products is a great idea if you do not have a lot of storage space or do not want to invest a large amount of capital in buying stock. You do have to realize that it is going to be hard sourcing branded products from these drop shippers, and profit margins are not going to be very high on those branded goods.

      Have a look at the following UK suppliers of golf balls and accessories:

      - Brand Fusion International Ltd - Golf Wholesale Suppliers in the UK and Europe
      - Welcome to Reydon Sports Plc

      For more information and suppliers, have a look at the following thread on Wholesale Forum about sourcing golf products:

      - https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...ssories-13333/

      Great things to sell online are starter sets, you should consider sourcing some unbranded balls and accessories so that you can offer start up golf sets for starting golfers at low prices. Have a look the following suppliers of unbranded golf products from Hong Kong SAR:

      Golf bags
      - PS One Private Limited

      Golf sets, divot tools and hat clips
      - PIN-N-PIN

      To find many more verified UK and EU trade suppliers of golf balls, accessories and other golf related products, we recommend using the two largest UK online trade directories eSources and Wholesale Deals. They both list thousands of verified trade suppliers, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and drop shippers.

      Have a look at the following results:

      UK suppliers of golf products
      - UK Golf Balls Suppliers
      - UK Golf Accessories Suppliers
      - UK Golf Suppliers

      UK Drop shippers of golf products
      - Golf Dropshippers and Dropshipping Wholesale Suppliers in UK - Golf Wholesale Dropshipper & Dropshipping Directory

      EU suppliers of golf products
      - International Golf Suppliers

      Wholesale Deals - UK wholesalers and drop shippers
      - Golf Wholesale Suppliers - Golf Suppliers
      - Dropship Golf Dropshippers - Golf Dropshipping Suppliers
