How to find a supplier for Amazon FBA private label products:
I’m going to start with a site called Alibaba. In general, what you need to bear in mind is for products to go on or in your body we strongly recommend that you source those in the United States. And we’re going to show you how you can do both. In case you’ve got a product which you want to source in China. So you go to the Alibaba dot com site and then we’re going to type in eyelash Sarah. And then you hit the search button.
It’s going to bring up numerous results for us. But at this stage, as I said we’re looking for the USA and the great thing about Alibaba is it shows China and the USA. So what we need to do is go to the supplier location. And then check the box that says the United States. And automatically it’s going to bring up the search results, and you can see here we’ve got I think it was how many products we’re looking at 22 potential suppliers of this product.
While it’s a good source, there’s an alternative we can use to which is actually to use Google itself. So again it’s straightforward we’re going to type in eyelash serum, but this time we’re going to add a private label, and we’re going to put it the whole sentence inside quotes and then hit the return button.
And you can see here we’ve got 24 results so again we’ve got a lot more results to look at from even more suppliers.
Let me show them one little tip. As you can see we’ve already showed you how to do Alibaba but if you want when you’re searching Google and you do see the Alibaba results come up what you can do is just after you’ve put the term eyelash serum private label simply put the negative side of the minus sign and then the term Ali Baba dot com. When you hit enter again.
Now all of the Alibaba listings will be removed so you know that you’re looking at other list and that’s a super step especially for saving time when you’ve got a huge amount of results on the page.
Let me add that so you might be asking like well why wouldn’t I buy from the U.S. versus China. Well, there’s pros and cons now as Rich said. Usually when we see anything that we want to put on our skin or we want to ingest. We recommend that you shop in the US just because of stricter regulations. Now, something like this however if you did want to shop in China chances are you’re going to be able to get a much lower price for your order quantity, but that’s not the only thing that you want to look at because there’s also shipping time.
And that’s really how simple it is to find suppliers. You want to use multiple suppliers, and you want to contact them all these suppliers whether it’s on Alibaba or you find them on Google will have a contact us page or an email you can send to.
To me, it’s the two key things. Take your time and contact as many suppliers. You know you may think this is a pain doing this but as Jason says the more supplies you contact. The better results you’re going to get because you’re going to have a better idea of what the product really should cost you. But it’s really simple. But it’s time consuming take your time and do it right.
