The Search for US Suppliers
Not much to report in this update
It’s been a few days since my last update. I’ve been consumed with a CRM switch. Having used Hubspot for 5 years, I finally, after another up-sell attempt when trying to do something simple have decided to switch to ZohoCRM. That said, so many things to move and get right!
Basically, I’m learning the hard way how much time a “side hustle” ecommerce business requires, I need to step it up!
I do however have a quick update on my curious search for US suppliers. There are plenty of Chinese and Indian companies that provide great resources for sourcing products for your ecommerce business, but what about US suppliers?
I came across Handshake - https://www.handshake.com which while pretty, is not exactly extensive - maybe they need time to shake more hands?
It seems the best resource yet for finding product from suppliers in the US is https://www.faire.com/
