Wholesale Cell Phones To Sell Online
Oberlo has everything you need to easily run your online dropshipping business. And it’s free!
In 2017, more than one-third of the world’s population is expected to own a smartphone. With such a large percentage of people owning a smartphone, there are always customers needing a new phone or you can choose to attract those who don’t currently own one. You can also upsell phone cases on your store to increase your store’s average order value. Most smartphone sales are for android phones. Thus, making it easy for new entrepreneurs to dropship phones as all AliExpress smartphones are for android.
It’s financially riskier to wholesale cell phones than to dropship them. Cell phones often cost at least $100 for retailers making it an expensive venture if you’re unable to sell the product. If you dropship them instead, you only buy inventory for what you’ve need from customers who’ve already paid you. Also, as a dropshipper you can set a margin that allows you to make a sizeable profit. However, as a wholesaler, even if you set the same margin you need to take into account that some of the inventory might not sell which eats away at your margin.
When it comes to cell phones, there are a number of complementary goods, that are in high demand, especially as the demand of smartphones is on the rise. These complementary products include car phone holders, earphones, universal USB phone chargers, selfie sticks, selfie portable flashlights for the front camera, mobile phone cases and covers, phone holders, and a bunch of other products that cell phone owners may require. Oberlo has a number of distributors that supply cell phone parts and accessories. It is very common to sell these cell phone products along with the cell phone itself, in order to stay competitive. In addition to the cell phone accessories, some of the distributors also supply camera accessories, or laptop accessories, and other consumer electronics that might be of interest to the customer.
China’s cell phone market has seen a huge rise in demand in the past couple of years. This means that manufacturers have had to make their manufacturing process more efficient to meet the rising demand. The interesting part is that China’s phone market is now dominated by five main companies, which does not include Samsung. These five companies include Xiaomi, Huawei, the Oppo-Vivo duo, and Apple, which accounts for 91% of the sales. The worldwide popularity of the first four China based manufactured phones can be attributed in part to their price and ease of availability combined with great functionality. Most of these manufacturers rely on online sales to meet the rising worldwide demand for their products.
