Why Sell Bedding Online?
Sales for bedding linens and accessories have been increasing steadily over the past few years. One of the benefits of selling kids bedding sets, comforters and linens are that they may want to update their linens as they grow out of their childhood linens. This allows you to sell more linens. Also, while people change their mattress every 7 years, people tend to change the look of their home more frequently (between every 6 months and 5 years). With simple decor changes such as wall painting comes the need for new linens. Marketing to this audience can be easy as people who frequently like home decor pages may lead to finding the perfect customer.
It’s better to dropship than wholesale bedding. The main benefit of dropshipping bedding is that many of the bedding sets have free ePacket shipping. However, when you wholesale bedding, the items can be bulky which would increase the cost of shipping exponentially for the store owner or the customer. Also, as the retail cost of bedding is at a higher price point than many everyday items you risk losing money with unsold inventory. Dropshipping ensures you only purchase the inventory you need. It also allows you to experiment more to determine which types of products will sell better than others without any risk.
When looking for distributors of bedding, it is important to keep the quality of the product in mind. At Oberlo there are a number of distributors with high-quality bedding that is fit for the purpose of dropshipping. The bedding comes in various different colors, many with intricate designs on them that might match your bedroom interior. Distributors also supply bedding that fits the needs for child-sized beds, cribs, and even bedding that is suitable for pet beds. Bedding supplies can often be found together with interior decoration products. Distributors at Oberlo also provide a variety of sofa bed pillows with trendy sayings or fun images, along with bed sheets and covers.
The manufacturers of bedding supplies are based mainly in Asia. The countries that have the top manufacturers are China, India, and Taiwan. China manufactures 95% of the bedding for the suppliers. Bedding products are most popular in North America, South America, and Western Europe. The manufacturers of bedding are careful of the material that they are selecting for the bed linen. This is to keep in mind the niche that is allergic to some bedding materials. Normally, the bed linens for babies or children are made of 100% cotton, to make sure that the material is free from PVA chemicals. Bed linen manufacturers usually provide sets of bedding, which includes matching sheets, a duvet cover, pillowcases, and sometimes even comforters, mattress protectors, mattress pads, and even towel sets.
