      Hi Changeofchange,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      There are a number of ways to find new suppliers, but the most important thing you should remember is that you need to verify every supplier you find. Suppliers can be found easily, but the chance that these suppliers are scammers who are out for a quick profit is very high. We recommend reading some of the informative threads about finding and verifying suppliers right here on Wholesale Forum:

      - Wholesale Sources - How To Find Verified Wholesalers and Drop Shippers Instantly
      - https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...-one-year-530/

      Following are more ways to find suppliers:

      Browse local shops
      When you find products in local shops which you are interested in selling, then you can examine the packaging of those products and see if you can find the wholesale company or distributors name. Make a note or remember this name and do your research when you get back behind a computer.

      Attend trade shows
      Trade shows are a great way of finding and meeting suppliers in person and having a firsthand look at their products. You’re guaranteed to find at least a couple of wholesalers to possibly work with.

      To get the advantage of choosing between many verified suppliers and therefore be able to source the best product and for the best price, we recommend using the largest global trade directories of verified suppliers on the web. eSources, Wholesale Deals and Worldwide Brands all list verified wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and drop shippers.

      Hope this helps
