In 2002, Inventory Source was born. This dropship company was founded in beautiful Jacksonville, Florida, where it still operates today as world headquarters. The company touts itself as the “world’s largest and longest-running dropship data solution provider.”
The company was founded by veterans of the e-commerce industry.

Today, Inventory source uses the best and latest in technology and resources to allow retailers and wholesalers to work together effectively and seamlessly.

Looking to resell a product or products? The prospect can be both exciting and foreboding. There are certainly risks inherent in this endeavor, but the rewards are also enticing. Inventory Source pledges to remove those fears and trepidations and turn this business into something enjoyable and profitable for you.
Inventory Source boasts a number of tools and elements that will please any user. Here are some notable pros of using this dropship company:
With Inventory Source, users can employ a tool where one can search more than 80 wholesale suppliers sources. Inventory Source adds to this repository every month. The sources are trustworthy and respected, so you don't have to be concerned about getting involved in shady business deals. The tool also allows you to research different categories, brands and product details.
With this tool you can review product and program details, helping you know and understand what you are getting into before you begin doing business. This way, you won't find that the supplier does not fit your needs after it's too late.
Need to set up your pricing strategy? Inventory Source simplifies this significantly, allowing you to have price control with the click of a button. This tool lets you set the strategy or change it and allow it to be applicable and live across the board.
Users often are looking to resell a variety of product types and brands. If this is the case for you, Inventory Source has you covered. It's advanced tools make it possible to filter brands. Users have access to more than 1 million products with Inventory Source. The options are virtually limitless.
Inventory Source has excellent qualities that would be attractive to potential users. Of course, with anything, there are improvements that could be made to enhance usability and effectiveness.
For obvious reasons, the delivery component of dropshipping is critical. Getting your products to the supplier is key. Inventory Source lacks in this area. Inventory Source does not customize shipping for you, not do they offer blind shipping. It's all standard operations with noting special or unique to set it apart from the competition.
The pricing structure is a little confusing and even a tad bit misleading at first glance. Users should be wary and ensure they fully understand how much they are paying each month. At first glance, you can use Inventory Source for only $25 a month. Not bad, right? A closer examination reveals that the $25 is for one supplier only. If you want to or need to use another, the cost is an additional $15 a month per supplier. Don't go into your business thinking it's a flat $25 a month fee across the board. And more advanced plans cost $50 a month, plus $30 for each additional supplier. There are certainly cheaper options out there.
It's not that Inventory Source has terrible customer service, but it could be better. Also, there could be some added tools to its customer service arsenal. For instance, there is no live chat component available. This is a function that users and customers of various industries look for, and its omission with Inventory Source is a gaping hole.
No wholesale low price guarantee. Customers love guarantees and low prices. When these two are paired together, it's a winning match. But Inventory source doesn't offer this, and it's a significant drawback, especially when competitors do offer it.
