What to Know About Dropshipping Halloween Costumes
Dropshipping Halloween costumes can be an excellent option for an online store product niche. The market is so large that there is room for many retailers to be successful and profitable. Not to mention, many buyers of Halloween costumes like to search online before they go in a brick-and-mortar store.
With any seasonal product, you will get a diverse and large customer base, which is great because it means a large number of consumers will be searching for products you carry in your online store. Since the products are seasonal, you also have the opportunity to gain return customers year over year.
Why Is Halloween So Popular?
Compared to Thanksgiving and Christmas, Halloween is a much more affordable holiday. Halloween is a commercial tradition—shoppers are looking for a deal, and Halloween delivers. Each year, Americans spend approximately $8 million preparing for the holiday.

The directory will present you with a list of suppliers. From here, you can browse product catalogs and access supplier contact details if you want to reach out for more information. To begin selling costumes online, you must have a reseller account set up with the costume supplier you plan to source from. You can find reseller account setup details on each supplier’s profile.
Most Halloween clothing is manufactured in China, India, and Vietnam. However, the highest demand for customers is in North America and Western Europe.
When choosing a supplier, pay attention to the quality of their products. Consumers are looking for items that can stand up to the wear and tear of Halloween parties.
