What to Know About Dropshipping Perfume, Fragrance, and Personal Care Products
Dropshipping perfume and fragrance has been a popular online retail category for nearly a decade. However, personal care such as skin care products and beauty products have become a strong dropship category as well.
Along with the “eco-friendly” and “organic” movement, a whole new wave of brands has emerged. New buyers that are traditionally younger and more accustomed to shopping online are buying up these products.
Perfume is in demand year-round. In fact, the fragrance market is set to reach $64.6 billion by 2023. Given the endless variety available at different price points, a new reseller can enter the market with an online store relatively easily.
You can choose to dropship skincare, affordable fragrances, luxury brands, or work directly with a perfume manufacturer and white label products. The consumers will come. You just have to outperform your competitors with optimized product data and reliable service.
How to Dropship Perfume
First, determine which market you want to be in. Do you wish to sell to customers seeking a low-end, cheaper product, or a high-end, expensive one? Maybe you want to sell somewhere in between?
For example, you can choose to focus on rarer, luxury perfumes or perhaps organic types. Pay attention to perfume concentration levels—the higher the level, the longer the perfume will last.
Have a clear business model in mind before you begin the next steps.
To source products to sell online, you’ll need to pick a supplier. Because fragrance is a highly-competitive market, it’s vital to zero-in on a particular niche.
How to Find a Wholesale Fragrance Supplier
If you’re just getting started, it is crucial that you choose a supplier that is trustworthy and reliable. Luckily, Inventory Source’s free supplier directory only lists suppliers that our team members have personally verified.
Using a supplier directory, it’s easy to use advanced filtering features to narrow down your supplier search.
Inside the directory, you can browse through supplier catalogs to see which products they tend to stock. You can also get a good idea of the amount and quality of the product information they provide. This is the information you’ll use to sell the products in your store, so be sure it’s high-quality.
Once you have a few suppliers in mind, you can easily access their dropship program details and contact information inside of the directory.
You’ll need to get in contact with any supplier(s) you’re considering and inquire about their dropshipping program. Most suppliers require you to apply for their program before you can begin selling their products.
Don’t let the conversation be one-sided. You should have questions for potential suppliers as well, such as whether they require an order minimum, how they bill their resellers, and how they’re shipping the products.
