Sourcing CBD products to dropship on Shopify can be a daunting task. With the numerous regulations and need for quality assurance, many merchants waste a lot of time and money trying to locate reliable vendors for CBD inventory.
Here are some of the most popular ways Shopify merchants are finding CBD vendors today:
Manufacturers - Contacting manufacturers is a great way to connect with CBD vendors. While manufacturers do not sell directly to the public and won’t fulfill orders for you, they often maintain a list of approved vendors for their products. Ask CBD manufacturers for their list of vendors and use those leads to find the perfect dropshipping vendor for your business.
Now, this is not a simple or easy process. With thousands of manufacturers in the US alone, it’ll take time to find the right one for your business.
Google - Pretty straightforward tactic, but here are a few tips to keep in mind while searching:
Search extensively – Be prepared to dive deeper than the first 10 pages of search results. Your perfect dropshipping supplier may be on page 60+.
Filter your search – Don’t use basic keyword searches. Combine your keywords with different modifiers to ensure the results are as accurate as possible. Find a list of modifiers for Google search here.
Directories - Directories and databases are great resources for finding CBD vendors. The best directories will have a screening process to ensure the quality of the vendors they list. You can expect a fee associated with accessing dropship directories.
