If you’re looking for a profitable niche for an ecommerce business, here is an idea for you: dropship wholesale glassware and make money from home.
Wholesale glassware is a great niche with a very broad target market!
If you dropship wholesale glassware, you can depend on a steady stream of traffic from potential buyers all through the year. Naturally, there will some seasons when sales will probably spike, such as when June weddings roll around, or the winter holidays with all of the festive parties. But, you can basically enjoy a goodly amount of traffic and sales all year long.
Who Buys Glassware?
First of all, let’s clarify that “wholesale glassware” means that you buy it for resale at wholesale prices and sell it at retail prices. This is the only way you’ll make a profit, since you can’t very well buy wholesale and sell at wholesale prices, as well. So, in order to succeed, you will have to find a genuine wholesale product source that gives you low prices---low enough to leave an ample margin of profit when you resell the glassware.
Now, moving on to who buys glassware, the answer is that there are a lot of buyers out there who routinely purchase glassware in bulk.
One of the bad things about glassware---from the buyer’s point of view---is that there is always going to be a certain amount of breakage. This means that your glassware buyers will be buying more pieces to replace the broken ones on a regular basis, if you provide them with decent prices and excellent customer service so that they come back to buy from you again and again.
While this breakage is a bad thing for your buyers, it’s actually a very good thing for you!
Here are some of the businesses that routinely buy glassware:
- Bars and nightclubs
- Private clubs
- Wedding planners
- Party supplies
- Coffee shops
- And more
You won’t lack for customers!
Quality is Important
Even though your buyers will understand and know before buying that there will be a certain amount of breakage, you still need to provide good quality glassware.
Many establishments, especially smaller ones, still use human dishwashers to wash up drink ware, as it is prone to spotting when cleaned in a commercial dishwasher. The last thing these buyers will want is poor quality, thin glassware that shatters and breaks, causing accidents.
Besides that, most of your customers will want a better quality, attractive line of glassware.
So, be sure to choose a dropship product supplier who stocks high quality glassware your buyers will like!
Whether it’s coffee cups, iced tea, highball, martini or other glasses---you can dropship wholesale glassware and make money from home!
