It can be frustrating to track down Canadian dropshipping companies. Most Canadian retailers and wholesalers haven’t caught on to the opportunity, or they dismissed it long before it was the feasible fulfillment option it is today. International companies that serve Canadian sellers are much more plentiful.
There are, however, a few individual companies and wholesalers in Canada that offer drop shipping to Canadian sellers. Some have active public programs, while others may consider it if you contact them directly. You might have to explain the concept to them and let them mull it over. Refer them to Wholesale Suppliers: How to Offer Dropshipping Services for further guidance if they need it.
Most individual companies use a product/data feed of some sort so you can integrate their stock list for your online store. Adding their products is more manual than automated, if they don’t have an app of their own. Additionally, they may not be able to provide real-time inventory updates, which are critical to avoid selling a product that’s actually sold out. The best you’ll usually find are daily updates.
A growing number of Canadian dropshippers go through an existing app for multiple wholesale suppliers who provide this type of fulfillment service, which is a whole lot easier for both parties. These apps feed into major ecommerce platforms, such as Canada’s Shopify. This allows users of those ecommerce platforms to automate product listing and order processing, as well as automated access to real-time inventory.
I very rarely deal with companies who don’t have an app with live inventory tracking. It’s just too labour intensive, and constantly worrying about product availability adds too much stress to the drop shipped fulfillment business model.
A few third party drop shipper marketplace apps with both international and Canadian companies are:
Syncee marketplace includes Canadian wholesalers, with some offering drop shipping services.

Hi how much do you mark up the price you charge the buyer?
There are variances depending on your expenses, the market, competitors, how much you want to profit, etc.
Customer Price – (Wholesale Cost + Expenses) = Your Profit
