You might Google search "drop ship" and find something.

With such a broad topic I can't think of anything off the top of my head to suggest. Definitely do a search for wholesale drop shipping and see what that turns up for you.

This probably isn't exactly the type of advice you are looking for, but something that really struck me about your post is a mistake many people make when they start out in business. You wrote, "We plan to sell whatever we can buy at wholesale and have a wide variety of things."

I would suggest you zero in on a specific market and specialize in products for that market. Trying to be all things to all people is so much more difficult and much less likely to be successful online.

Think about it... even a hugely successful online retailer like Amazon didn't start out selling everything. They became well known and successful as a book seller and then started adding categories one at a time.

Once you have a specific category of items you want to sell, it will be much easier to find a source.

Hi
If u wanna buy poducts at wholesale and sell them online -- i think that it would be very tedious as u would have to manage the Drop Ship , then if the consumer has any problems then you would have to give them support on the problems regarding the products , instead i suggest you should try Affiliate Marketing. the only difference here is you get a commission for referring a consumer to a Seller's product - this way u dont have to worry about the over head costs/ support facilities /drop ship nothin cos all that is done by the Seller/Vendor. e.g. You recommend online some1 to buy Golf Equipment worth 100$ and vendor gives commission of 75% so u would make 75$ on this referral -- best part is u dont have to worry about drop ship / support if the Golf equipment has gonebad etc.
Lemme know what u think
take care
