2020 Top 4 Drop Shipped Product Suppliers for Canadians

Many Canadians are interested in selling products online, either with their own website or through eBay and Amazon.  Drop shipping provides a low-risk option for starting an online business in Canada.  Today’s supplier portals (gateways) make it really easy to find and sell millions of products globally.   The most difficult part is choosing the best drop shipping suppliers in Canada to deal with, and it’s a question we’re asked on a regular basis.

In the beginning, you’ll probably find it easiest to deal with large drop shipping services that list products from hundreds of major players.  You may need to set up a website before they’ll work with you, but some of the below options also have that covered for you.  It sure beats dealing with individual merchants and tackling chores manually.  Plus, drop shipping portals often provide information about how to get started and succeed, along with specialized tools to ensure your success.

There isn’t always a huge selection of drop-shippers that are in Canada, but most suppliers that are based outside of this country will still accept Canadian drop shippers and you can ship to Canada from where they’re located.  You can sell to customers all over the world without headaches like Customs, regulations, or shipping delays!

We’ve evaluated countless drop shipping and wholesale suppliers over the years.  The most important thing we’ve learned is which drop shipping companies not to deal with.  The knowledge and insight we’ve gained from our own experience and feedback from our readers, has also allowed us to identify the best drop shipping suppliers for Canadians.  These gateway companies welcome sellers in this country and do their best to understand our unique challenges.

Additionally, our Checklist: How to Start a Drop Shipping Ecommerce Business in Canada guides you step-by-step, as you explore this method of order fulfillment. 

The best drop shipping companies for Canadians in 2020 are:

Wholesale2B – Wholesale2B has everything you need and is very easy to use. They have several plans that facilitate the sale of over 1.5 million products on eBay, Amazon, Google, apps on popular eCommerce platforms like Shopify, or through a website (your own or via a turnkey site). Wholesale2B guarantees the lowest drop ship prices.  They ship to most of the World, including Canada, the US and the UK. Take them for a test drive with the free trial.

AliDropship – Offers two affordable and versatile WordPress solutions. Both include over 100,000 suppliers offering free worldwide shipping to your customers, along with two combined revenue streams (product sales profit and affiliate commissions on those sales).

Concerns about shipping delays from Asia may soon be a thing of the past, as marketplaces like Alibaba open eCommerce processing centres in Canada.  Now is the time to position yourself as a Canadian source of these  low-priced goods.

You can either buy the plugin and do it yourself (standalone or integrated with WooCommerce), or pay a one-time fee to have it all set up for you.

  1. The plugin is the best in the business, featuring store themes, search and one-click product import, auto-updates from suppliers, auto pricing, auto order placement, and a control panel for tracking and reporting.

They have an industry-leading qualification process that ensures your business is connected to wholesalers with REAL factory-direct wholesale prices. The same certification process protects you from wholesale scams, fake suppliers and middlemen. They also provide a “bulk” section if you decide you’d like to try selling direct with your own inventory. The companies listed on World Wide Brands cannot charge set-up fees and must be manufacture-authorized wholesalers to ensure warranties will be honoured. New wholesalers are added every week.

Hello, I am trying to find someone to help me and guide me through the online business building process. In other words, either a mentor or paid business to answer all my questions. I don’t want them to do the actual work, I want them to answer my questions and when I need help, be able to provide it. I get more confused with online ads. Is there a place I can go that actually has the accreditation and can offer the help I need?

vig

Thanks for such informative blogs. Is it possible to set up a dropshipping in US from US suppliers while you are living in Canada or have a partner in US. What are your thoughts on US dropship ebay market vs Canadian drop ship market

jorge tasse

i find this dropshipping situation overwhelming and if you are from canada then you have to seal with the lower rates of candian dollar exchange..is there still any canadian dropshpping company reliable around

Josey

Is there a way to pick your own dropshippers but still use automatic inventory? I’d rather pick my own local supplers but trying to manually control inventory would be a nightmare!

Cynthia Murphy

Yes, but do any of them allow you to view the type of merchandise they have before committing?

Sheldon

I wonder why more Canadian shops aren’t doing a dropshipping program? Maybe they don’t know about it. Most of them just stare blankly when I ask about it or the email version of staring blankly anyway. 😀 It’d be a good idea for someone looking for a coaching niche!

Hi. It is indeed nicely written and has helped me to take the initiative. But I am unable to find anything with regards to taxes in Canada. If I sell on amazon.com using wholesale2B, do I need to charge any GST to respectively pay the same here in Ontario? Any help would be great.

A. Yes you do charge taxes when you sell to Ontario or Canada Customer. If you are not registered business for GST purpose you can sell without charging Taxes, however in commercial purpose you do need to collect tax.
2. Wholesale2B, I tried paid version for a month, they have very little Canadian supplier, mostly USA supplier who do ship to Canada, price and shipping cost are higher then profit margin. it worthy if you want to build your customer online store, shopify, ebay etc, However some supplier products image are not compliant with eBay listing so you listing will be in violation or either RED highlighted until you correct them which takes lot of times.

Wholesale2B offer great platform connection such as woocommerce apps, amazon, shopify I havent tried. I tried their eBay apps, it great to post products push to ebay but still need a lot of work and technical skills.

I am still in pursuit to try inventory source they had great technical platform, and supplier of Canadian distributor as well USA distributor. Zero fees for previewing supplier and items. 50$ a month for basic apps using one supplier of your choice. They also have great attribution of products . I will input my feedback after I tried them out soon! If anyone tried Inventory source for woocommerce or ebay please also share your feedback.

Have a good day

Great list Melody. Thanks

folarin mabawonku

Can i use the website hosted for me on whoesale2B to also work with worldwide brand? hope it wont be a conflict of interest?

Bill

Great information , thanks for sharing it. I want to start dropshipping and I am researching niches etc. I want to work with Canadian and US suppliers to have a better chance of avoiding: long shipping times, possible counterfeits and border problems. The prices might be higher but the headaches less. Do you agree with that? Do you have any “step by step” training? There is a ton of info on the Internet, too much.

Paulina Kolodziej

Hi Everyone! love the information provided. Just a quick questions, I am opening a shopify store and want to use Aliexpress as a supplier but the shipping to Canada and US is over 1 month long,, which is not appealing to customers. Does anyone know any suppliers that are free to use and have faster shipping? thanks alot!

Nikki

Very concise and curated list, it definitely seems like you’ve done your research! I see you’ve recommended drop shipping directories, like World Wide Brands, do you have more success with finding suppliers via a directory rather than just going straight to the source? As I’ve been reading around the topic of dropshipping, a few sites have mentioned sourcing dropshipping products straight from the manufacturer as it cuts down on costs and allows for larger profit margins. What are your thoughts, or would you still rather stick to sourcing suppliers via a directory?

our companys name abhispharma speclities india we want to start drop shipment from india can u advice us a way forward we are having all branded medicnes of mnc pharma companies and also products of indian branded company pls advice us if anybody above intrested our email id is as mentioned below

Lyle Prozi

i used wholesale 2b for a couple of years to get started then i got storage containers and bought wholesale inventory. drop shipping was how i got started because I didn’t have investment $$. I made money from drop shipping and started investing it to my own inventory until i didn’t need them anymore. but i still use drop shipping sometimes if i don’t want to store it here. it’s a good way to make a living and i’ll never have to work for someone else again.

Bill

Hello. Do you purchase your products in Canada or the US

Sherry Bennett

Hi All,
I am new to this concept of drop shipping! Where do I start?? I am getting close to retirement and want to continue keeping busy and keeping the old mind sharp! I want to be able to travel and work as well. Any advice you have to offer would be greatly appreciated!

Marianne Hay

Hello Sherry, I am new to drop shipping and see that you have a 6 month head start. I am in the same boat as you, wanting to retire but still make money and travel. Did you see this through and would you be willing to pass on any tips or information? TIA!

larry binns

I have a unique product ready for market to retail stores. would love to make the product available to drop shippers. Where would I start to find them. They will sell, we will ship.

Hi Larry, I have recently started dropshipping. I have an online store on Shopify. I am from Ontario. I would like to look at your product. Can you please contact me? Thanks.

calgarykg

Hi there! I’m wondering what your experiences have been like with dropshipping from Shopify. I’m interested in getting started but am worried about delays in shipping times. I’ve had a lot of problems with merchandise being delayed when ordering from Aliexpress and other Chinese retailers myself, so am curious what your experience has been. Thank you!

Cathy

Hello I would be interested in speaking with you regarding your product.

Christian

I will market your product! Just getting started with online stores and I need quality products!

Hi,

I have read both good and bad things about some of the dropshippers, you list here. Two that I was very interested in. What is your experience with those that you listed. Did you work with them?

roger

Wow thank you Melody for this post!
Could you please help: I am wondering if the drop shipping company based in USA can ship to my canadian buyer without custom fees?

Sarbjit Gosal

Thanks for this info. This is much needed for Canadian drop shippers. Are suppliers/manufacturers willing to easily provide you with their catalogue of goods available and is that as simple as making contact with them and asking for it? Do many of them have websites to view their products? Thanks!

hope711

Hi, wanted to start dropshipping… just wondering if i have to register the business cause i have no guaranty that I’ll make money? I’m leaving Ottawa. what is the best site to do so: shopify, woocomerce, ecwid….
thank you

Maria

I live in Calgary Alberta. I want to start drop shipping but I have an concern. I pay my taxes in Canada. What should I put on an Application Form for TAX PURPOSES if asked by an American Supplier to give them my TAX Number. Thank you. AMP

Robin East

I’m very excited and anxious to start drop shipping, but feel really overwhelmed and unsure where to start. I’d love to see a few sample letters or templates used to initiate contact with these companies to inquire about whether they facilitate drop shipping ……, their condition’s, fees, requirements and anything else I should include in my first letter or e-mail to potential wholesalers.
Thank you so much for your help!

Tamara

Congratulations for this helpful website. I have a question regarding customs and shipping fees. Do the dropshipping companies mentioned above deal with customs directly? do they give you the price for the products including customs fees as well as shipping costs?

Donna

I am really interested in getting into drop shipping in Canada but I’m feeling a little intimidated about just how and where to start. I don’t have my own website. Can anyone tell me where I can get some step-by-step training for setting up and getting going? Any help would be much appreciated!!

Oscar

Hi Donna you might wanna try and check http://www.shopify.com they are legit and offer website for you store..

Glenn

How do I add products that I manufacture to a drop shipping company?

Amelie Blasier

I’m new to drop shipping and trying to navigate the business structure, taxes and all that. I LOVE the concept! I found out about it from my aunt who dropships on ebay to help make ends meet now that she’s retired. I’m proud of her for doing something online at her age! She makes enough to pay most of her bills so she can use her pension to travel. It’s an easy thing to do on the road. I’d can’t wait until I join her!

Joyce

Thank you so much for all the information shared on this group.

roger

Thank you for the info!!!!This is very helpful!.

Catarina Blake

I love that you included sites that have different things to offer. I like World Wide Brands for building my database of tried & true dropshippers and potential products. They verify all companies they list and I can use their tools to evaluate products right there. They blow salehoo out of the water IMO. I started with Wholesale2b because it’s easy to use and I want to get into selling on a website instead of just ebay. Inventory source was more than I needed so I haven’t used that one and can’t say if it’s good or not. You didn’t recommend doba but I want to add that there’s bad reviews for them on ebay so newbies should Google them before joining. Hope that helps!

Maria Claudia Vasquez

Hello I am thinking in working in this kind of business. But I want to know something.

The Supplier tells you at what price should I sell the product to the client?

Thanks for your help

Yeabsira Kebede

I am from Ethiopia and I am interested in selling on ebay to customers in Canada. I am considering dropshipping but I hear most suppliers may need a tax ID to do business with me. I also want to know if suppliers might have a problem with me not being in Canada? What are my oprions? Please advise.

Deb T

Wholesale in Canada try http://www.mlmsmages.com – they have everything and are in Saskatchewan

Wow thank you Melody for this post!

Let say that I use shopify to drop ship.
Thx a lot

Sam

we have started drop shipping and so far is good. We can also do drop shipping for others now.

We sell unique gifts online.

Barry George

I like Worldwide Brands because it set me up for either drop-shipping or wholesale purchasing. I do both now on eBay!

noidiots

Do you have to sell wholesale to use these suppliers? Or can you just sell singular items through these sources?

David Cairns

Is it possible to use multiple directories simultaneously, since a brick and mortar store would use multiple suppliers to get a broad selection of products, or would world wide brands require your online store to use only their directory? Would you be able to use multiple directories even if your online store and websites were set up initially with the help of worldwide brànds or wholesale2B?

John Anderson

Rock on! You are a guru.
Beginners don’t know how to find a supplier for eBay, and don’t know which products they should sell online.

Harlan

I didn’t know so many collectives existed and its going to help so much!!! Thanks a ton!!!

Steff

honestly I wouldn’t have chosen any differently. I do work with some small businesses too and it’s morelabour but worth it to sell something different or even exclusive. Like one is an artist and you don’t get much more original than that. 🙂

Jeremy Hachey

I’m just short of 3 years into drop shipping on ebay. I also work full time and the 500+ I make with parttime drop shipping goes towards my retirement. I want to go full time drop shipping when I retire but you never know if you’re health will hold out. Thanks for the resources.

May I ask how you managed to build your client base quickly to stay profitable?

It’s SO MUCH easier to deal with the big directories with their features and selection. I tried using a handful of individual businesses & the administration was a NIGHTMARE! Do yourself a favour and go with people who specialize in helping dropshippers and businesses work together.
