About

What is Canbaba?



Welcome to Canada's first wholesaling and dropshipping marketplace! 


We connect Canadian manufacturers, producers, makers, farmers, growers, distributors and wholesalers with qualified business buyers and resellers from around the globe who will resell their products. 

We are NOT a retail marketplace for consumers, this is only for wholesaling business to business sourcing. There are millions of retail sites but no current all encompassing bulk wholesale and dropshipping site exclusively for Canadians - we are changing this by making Canadian products more easily accessible to Canadians and the world! 

All products are to be resold in bulk quantities or single quantities for dropshippers. Easily set your minimum order quantity with our pre-sets. 

Please note: we are in our beta testing stage and are focusing on growing our supply side at this time. Feel free to invite Canadian vendors!

During our beta testing stage:

  • It's free to sign up, create your virtual storefront and add unlimited products listings.
  • We accept PayPal and Stripe at this time. We plan to add more payment options soon.
  • Our transaction fees are 8% on each order paid through the vendor account.

We are open to suggestions, feedback, media inquiries and strategic partnerships here.
