Buy webshop products from a supplier or wholesaler

Buy webshop products? If you start with a webshop, you can choose to buy products yourself. Own stock ensures a fast delivery time and more profit margin because you can buy more at the same time from your supplier. In addition to building your own stock, you can opt for dropshipping. This is necessarily necessary with Aliexpress products but can also be done with a local wholesaler from your region.

Choosing products before you start buying webshop products

But which products are you going to choose for your webshop. Do you opt for low prices and mass sales or higher prices and less sales. With lower prices, you reach more people because more people have the budget to purchase your product. With higher prices, you need fewer customers for the same revenue, but your reach is smaller because fewer people can buy your product.
