I was inspired by a tweet by @jacksonfall, who is using chatGPT4 to instruct him in building an online business. Here is a full transcript of my attempt on day 4 – content and suppliers again (prompts are in bold, replies are monotype, and my comments are in italic)
Blog post day 4: content and suppliers
I go through a lot again today – looking for suppliers, is not easy – I have been going round in circles for a good few hours (tbf its not that long in the grand scheme of things, but most of the dropshipers I can find which are still going are china based, and that has tax and import implications for micro-companies in the UK, which I want to avoid)
day 4: suppliers
I have found a supplier in the UK that offers drop shipping. could you write me an introduction email to send to them please
Sure, I can help with that! Here's a sample email that you can customize for your needs:
Subject: Inquiry for Sustainable Pet Products Drop Shipping
Dear [Supplier's Name],
I hope this email finds you well. My name is [Your Name], and I am the founder of a new ecommerce website called Green Paws and Petals, which specializes in eco-friendly and sustainable pet products. I came across your company and was impressed by the range of sustainable pet products that you offer.
I am reaching out to inquire about your drop shipping services. We are looking for a reliable and sustainable supplier to partner with to provide our customers with high-quality, eco-friendly pet products. We are particularly interested in products that are made from natural and organic materials, as well as products that are biodegradable or compostable.
Could you please provide us with information about your drop shipping process, including the fees, minimum order quantities, and estimated delivery times? Additionally, do you have any products that are exclusive to your company that you would recommend for our website?
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you and potentially building a long-term partnership with your company.

In addition to this, I had to do some good old-fashioned google-research:
- amazon fulfilment [once I know a product, I can buy like 10 of them and do through amazon?]
- james and james [a big uk fulfilment center]
- https://www.vidaxl.co.uk/ – this one is promising, but not many eco friendly pet products
- https://www.saleyee.com/https://www.petsupplyuk.com/ – this one is more like a shop for buying stuff for a bricks-and-mortar petshop
- https://cjdropshipping.com/ this one is like alibaba :D — ships from china, so high shipping costs and VAT payable on import
- https://www.thepaws.co.uk/ — closing down :( but they have great categories – maybe I can search for their products later?
