    Hi there,

    It may seem obvious from the title what I'm enquiring about (and straightforward) although I'm having real difficulties finding suppliers/wholesalers who private label products.

    I have followed suggestions from others which is to simply conduct a google search for suppliers in the UK for private label sellers for the niche I'm looking for however, all suppliers so far have said they do not PL products.

    I would be interested in hearing some tips and suggestions any of you FBA Sellers out there have for using UK based suppliers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello & Welcome to TWF!

    In general, UK wholesalers don't offer such branding services - and even if you find few that does, the pricing will be too high for you to compete on Amazon.

    Manufacturer is a different story - but then again, there are not that many products that are still being manufactured in the UK, and ones that are, usually are higher/end luxury goods.

    Why do you want to stick with UK suppliers and not China, like everyone else is doing?

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Unfortunately, I've had a few bad experiences with Chinese suppliers and wanted to consider the possibility of local suppliers.

    Thanks.

    Hi, I have recently come across some sellers in the DIY industry, Packaging industry and supplement industry successfully doing private labelling.

    Where a lot of suppliers sell themselves on Amazon, they don't try to override the ones that are already selling well. They allow private label sellers to sell well on them.

    This is a vague answer but worth looking at products that are expensive to import due to its size.

    It is very useful to analyze the UK market, so you can find potential customers and suppliers

    Of course you can make money on this, I know many people who have homes and give them on Airbnb. It's just that now with this pandemic, everything is more difficult

    You may have heard that people make thousands of dollars by buying and selling goods on Amazon Seller Central. While it may sound too good to be true, people are making money as Amazon FBA sellers.
    After all, E-commerce has moved mainstream. Anyone with a computer and initiative can start their own website. That website becomes your e-commerce store. The website is your storefront.

    You can find suppliers on Amazon, eBay or other online platforms. You can even find direct companies that sell wholesale. There is a large list of company names on the Internet. A few years ago I was still trying to do this, now I have a supplier base, I sell the goods on Amazon if you've heard of amazon fba business. I can say that I really like that. Only I didn't try to work with the UK.
