Why Dropship Cell Phones Online?

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.

Who are the Main Manufacturers of Cell Phones?

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.
