Why Dropship Art Online?

Art is a great product to dropship as it allows you to offer customers a wider range of products, ship items affordably and scale quickly with minimal financial risk. If you choose to dropship with Oberlo, you can import up to 30,000 art products to your store without having to buy bulk inventory. You only pay for goods you’ve sold to customers. Some canvas and wall art can be large in size increasing the cost of shipping. However, when you dropship items, you can receive discounted shipping rates such as ePacket because the dropshipper has negotiated the best international shipping rates. Dropshipping art allows you to scale quickly because you don’t have to package and ship out goods. Many aspects of a dropshipping business can be automated which also allow you to grow quickly.

Who are the Main Distributors of Art?

Under the broad bracket of art, you will be able to find distributors who are supplying art itself, art supplies, or both. Distributors offer a selection of wall art, made by different painting techniques using acrylic, water, or oil paints that can be used as home or office decor. Other than this, some distributors also offer art supplies such as sets of paint brushes, canvases, watercolors, painting cotton, palettes, stationery sets, and many other art items to choose from. Sometimes distributors specialize in art and art supplies, and other times you have to manually skim through the offerings of suppliers to find art products that meet your needs.

Who are the Main Manufacturers of Art?

Art supply manufacturers are mainly located in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The art supplies from these places are most popular in North America, Western Europe and South America. Whether you are purchasing art or art supplies, quality is a top level consideration. That is why manufacturers of art and art supplies have to go through a number of regulation checks before finally being accepted by the suppliers and distributors.
