I wanted to use this app to find items to sell on my store and thought the app would help me import and sell the items via dropshipping, but it appears to just be an account on a website to buy wholesale items. I'll give the app 3 stars because I like the items available, and the description didn't claim to do what I thought it was going to do.

Hi there! 👋 Thank you for taking the time to write this feedback. Handshake is still young, and we love hearing your opinion! It helps us improve and create a marketplace that meets the needs of both suppliers and retailers. I'm sorry that the whole concept seemed unclear when you're getting started. I'll make sure to pass that on to our team for revision.

It sounds you're looking for a dropshipping solution, and I can recommend Oberlo(https://bit.ly/33qWvLw). Oberlo is a platform that makes it easy to find excellent products to dropship in your Shopify store. Also, check the Dropshipping:101 Course (https://bit.ly/2HE4iMU). Not only is it full of resources for you to learn from, but it's also created as a step-by-step guide, so it's easy to follow along. And, it's free! 😊 No matter which platform or app you choose, I wish you all the best with your business! -Iris
