What is Wayfair

Wayfair formerly known as CSN Stores (2002–2011) was founded in August 2002 by Niraj Shah and Steve Conine.  One of the most amazing facts about Niraj and Steve is that they actually began as dropshippers themselves.

By offering 14 million items from more than 11,000 global suppliers, Wayfair is the perfect supplier for dropshippers with specific “Niche” in categories for “Home Goods” i.e. furniture, home appliances, décor, and pet accessories.

They provide a convenient help center, details below:
