Dropshipping has been growing for a few years now and I quickly got into it!
More and more French people are interested in dropshipping because of its great accessibility and also because of the number of readers on my blog! Dropshipping offers you the possibility to sell online without stock! It’s not surprising that this business practice is growing on the Internet.
Let’s get back to the main topic.
The real question when you start dropshipping is the choice of supplier. Although most of the wholesalers are located abroad, especially in China, there are however quality suppliers in France who can deliver your customers in less than 48 hours!
Why French dropshipping?
Many French Dropshippers are looking for local suppliers and wholesalers because they may not trust Chinese wholesalers enough. There may be other reasons as well, but in any case, there are many advantages to working with a French dropshipping supplier:
- In case of concern, you benefit from a quick contact and as the supplier is also French, the exchanges will be more simplified, as there is no language barrier.
- The after-sales service is most of the time taken care of in France, which allows you to manage your returns more efficiently, if there are repairs or exchanges to be made.
- Since the supplier is located in France, delivery times will be greatly reduced. Depending on the policy adopted by the wholesaler, this is usually done in less than 48 hours while with a supplier located abroad, it may take up to several weeks.
There is therefore a real interest in working with a supplier in France.
Of course, you have to choose among the growing number of wholesalers. But if you define your niche well, you will find it quite quickly.
Some suppliers in France in dropshipping
To help you, I have prepared a list of some suppliers in France.
If you are a beginner in dropshipping, Web-drop-Market is a good choice. It is a platform where you will find more than 100,000 dropshipping references in France. You will have access to a large choice of serious suppliers and a large catalog of products that will allow you to generate a good income without worrying about logistics and delivery.
You have the opportunity to expand your visibility by offering your products directly on marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. This allows you to generate sales more quickly on your online store. To be able to dropship with Web-drop-Market, you have to pay a monthly fee of 19€ HT.
Cdiscount Pro is a very expensive Dropshipping provider in France. On this platform, you have access to more than 100 000 references. More than ten different product categories are also available to allow you to find your niche.
However, the membership fee at Cdiscount Pro is quite high:
2500€ HT that you have to pay at one time. Of course, this amount can be recouped but if you are a beginner I advise you not to start with Cdiscount Pro.
If you want to position yourself in the sale of DIY products, gardening, household appliances, and various electronic devices, All-Shopping Avenue is the ideal supplier in France. The platform offers you a large catalog of products in the home universe.
Cool Mini Prix
Cool Mini Prix is a French dropshipping supplier allowing you to sell jewelry and different gadgets that interest more and more people today. With this site, you will have a wide choice of products to offer to your customers.
If you want to start an online store specialized in selling motorcycle accessories and parts, Sifam is the perfect supplier. With more than 20,000 references, you will be sure to find quality products that correspond to the current demand of customers.
Ecopresto is a dropshipping intermediary that connects suppliers and distributors. It is a trusted platform that offers a large number of references. To access it, you must first register. Once registered, you have the opportunity to choose the products you want to sell on your site. The company provides stock synchronization, tracking numbers, return, and billing.
If you do a lot of research on the internet, you can easily find a supplier in France
After that, you have to evaluate this potential partner. For that, I invite you to analyze the different customer reviews, the different comments on the platform, etc. Another technique is to contact directly online or physical stores to know if they are interested in a dropshipping agreement. Some brands need to expand, so it’s in their interest to accept your proposal.
If you still want to test your niche and your products
it’s safer to turn to the cheaper or even free platforms. Once your business is growing, you can move on to more serious things.
