Where to Buy Wholesale Vibrators to Sell at a Profit

‘What product can I sell to make money?’.

The answer I give is always ‘Adult Products’ including wholesale vibrators.  And not because my mind is in the gutter.  Adult products have a tremendous mark-up on their cost, so it really is worthwhile to buy them wholesale (or import them) and re-sell them from 50% to 70% markup on your original cost. 

When you think that most fashion items only have a markup price of up to 25% (if that!) – Adult Products are less work for more money! Plus, sex sells! And the adult product industry is booming!

In fact, the sex toy industry is a $15 BILLION dollar yearly industry and it is growing every year.

But, where can you buy wholesale vibrators or adult toys in bulk for an affordable price?

Well, today I will help you with that.  All the locations below will sell to you at a wholesale price, and if you are willing to take the chance and import them (especially from China), you will make up to 300% profit on the products you sell.

If you stay with the ‘safer’ – get them from Australia. You will pay a bit more but will get your product sooner.  If you are more game and want more profit, go overseas. We have lists of where to buy both! There are advantages and disadvantages to buying vibrators wholesale both here and overseas.

Remember that some wholesale suppliers do require you to have an ABN to purchase wholesale, so I have included some retailers in the list for people who are wanting to get started by dipping their toe in the water!

1. Adult Products Are Not Just Vibrators

But before we start, adult products don’t just stop at vibrators.  There is a whole adult industry out there with many different facets.

Just some ideas on wholesale adult products include:

2. How to Start your Small Business in the Sex Toy Industry?

First of all, you need to find some adult products to sell.  Below I have listed all the sellers of wholesale vibrators, both in Australia and overseas that are reputable.  Do your research and find the best price and quality that you are looking for.  Set a budget for your new business, and buy a few of each product to sample for quality.

Think about whether you want to go with luxe products or cheaper products that are more affordable for your potential clients.

Once you have a small collection of products that you are happy with (and I’ve listed the wholesale distributors below) – the next step is to create a Facebook Page to advertise your wares.  If you want to go into it seriously, think of a business name, register your domain and grab the business name (all the details are in the ebook below if you need more information). Starting out small is all good, but you still need enough product to be able to service your clients if they buy.  Customers don’t want to have to wait six weeks for a shipment to arrive from overseas.

Make sure you take good photographs of the goods, and a rip-roaring write up about each is also great.

Other ideas to market your new business include:

  • Have a Sex Toy Party
  • Host a Hens Night
  • Do a Sex Toy Party Planning Business
  • Be you local ‘Vibrator’ lady
  • Think of unique ways to market your products, fundraisers for example.

3. Set Up Your Own Adult Product Based Online Store

Adult products lend themselves to being purchased online due to their anonymous nature.  So think about starting an online store!  There are a few platforms that make starting a store really easy – and each has pros and cons.  The most popular online store platforms include:

To read about each one to decide which is right for you, check out our article on ‘The Best Online Platforms to Consider for Start-Ups’.

Personally, I love Shopify.  Yes it costs about $30 per month and yes it may seem a bit complicated at first, but it is so scaleable (think big always) and has so many features that it is certainly worthwhile.  Plus if you go with a smaller platform or free platform, and you need to scale up later – swapping over shops is a nightmare!

If you want a fully customised store – we highly recommend Tenacious Digital!.  We use them ourselves.

4. White-Label Adult Websites 

If you google ‘How to start your own adult website’ – you will come up with a whole lot of ‘Start a White Label Adult Website for free!’ – and it sounds great! But remember that if it is too good to be true – it really isn’t.  And this is the same with white-label websites. 

Sure – getting a ‘free’ website that offers up to 60% commission sounds bloody wonderful – but the truth is that you can’t trust their sale reporting and an incredible 99% of white-label adult stores fail. You never really own a ‘free’ website and you are limited on stock and pricing. 

But if this is the way you want to go – here are some more reputable Turnkey Website Sellers:

5. Choosing Wholesale Sex Toy Products to Stock and Sell

There is a huge array of sex toys on the market.  They vary in price, quality and style.  Decide on what will sell well for your customers – and buy to suit.  If you are not sure what you think your customers might like, then a range of each is a good way to go, then test to see what your market is buying.  This is great if you aren’t sure about which niche to go into.

You want your customers to keep coming back, so make sure you choose something that will last the distance but is affordable enough that the average housewife can afford it.

Then if you want to get big, you need a niche.  What part of the adult industry can you focus on.

6. White Label Or Private Label Sex Toys

White label or Private Label is finding a product you love, and then branding that product as your own.  Imagine having a great big black vibrator with the name of your online store right there on the front of the packaging!!!! It isn’t just adult products that you can get white labelled either – there are a variety of products out there such as:

White Label Sex Toy Providers include:

Other White Label Adult Product Suppliers include:

  • Cupid Labs – formulate your own line of lubes and gels.

7. Design and Manufacture Your Own Sex Toys

If you have an idea on something unique – you can have your own line of adult products manufactured from scratch.  Here’s who does it:

8. Finding Your Adult Industry Niche

Whenever you start an online business, all the experts say you have to find your niche market.  And they are totally correct! But what is a ‘Niche’ in the Sex Toy Industry?  Well I’ll share just a few here, and where to buy the products wholesale or have them manufactured:

Wholesale LingerieBondage Sex Toys (BDSM)Geeky Sex Toys
LBGQ+ Sex ToysClitoral StimulatorsSex Furniture
Latex LingerieSex MachinesSex Dolls
Male Sex ToysSex GamesSexual Enhancement Products
Cosplay OutfitsOnline DatingMerkins

So as you can see, there are many niches to choose from.  If you do one of them well, it can be a lot more lucrative than doing all of them a bit average.

9. Postage and Packaging Your Adult Products

Make sure you always package sex toys discretely if they are going in the mail or are shipped.  Many people order them online for the anonymity the internet gives them.  Plain brown paper packaging and a discrete name will ensure your customers’ details are kept confidential at all times.

10. Pricing Your Sex Toys for Resale

If you are planning on importing your products from overseas, you can afford to mark up the price of your sex toys from 50% to 150%.  Probably even higher if you can import them from China.  However if you are buying in bulk from Australia, you can really only markup the cost around 30% if you want to stay competitive.

Luxe products can be marked up more than low-cost products. For example, this product here retails for upwards of $300 in some places.  You can buy it via Aliexpress for US$46.54.

11. I Can’t Afford to Buy Stock for my Adult Store!

Dropshipping is where you don’t even need to see the product.  A customer will order a product from your Facebook Page or online store, then you submit it to the supplier who will then send out the product directly to your client.  Sounds great huh.

BUT (there is always a BUT), Drop Shipping can take a lot longer for postage and handling, and there are some shonky operators around.  So always do your research first if you decide to go that way.  I’m hoping that Drop Shipping businesses will get more reputable as time goes on because it is seriously a great ‘business platform’ for small business.

Take a look at our list of the most reputable drop shippers!

We have a list below of wholesale and dropshipping suppliers!  Okay – the list!
