How To Start An Online Clothing Store – Forbes Advisor

The reason we recommend sourcing your products before creating your website is that finding suppliers can take a significant amount of time. There’s no use paying for a website without having products to sell.

There are a few ways to source products for your store:

  • Manufacture your own products
  • Order wholesale from a supplier
  • Dropship products from a supplier

If you’re planning to manufacture your own products, you’ll need to find a manufacturer and set up a production line. This can be expensive and time-consuming, but may be worth it to make something unique.

To set up a production line, you’ll need to:

  • Research manufacturers and narrow down a list of candidates
  • Choose a reputable manufacturer
  • Work with the manufacturer to create your product
  • Get samples
  • Invest in quality control

If you’re not planning to manufacture your own products, you can either order products wholesale or dropship them. Dropshipping is when you sell products that are shipped directly from the supplier to the customer. This is a good option if you’re just starting out because it requires less upfront investment. You’ll need to find a supplier who offers dropshipping and set up an account with them.

When choosing a supplier, consider:

  • Reputation
  • Price
  • Shipping times
  • Product quality

Popular sources for suppliers, wholesalers or manufacturers include DHgate, Alibaba, LA Showroom, Oberlo, Abound, Handshake and FashionGo.
