I run a music related website, and want to start selling band shirts, accessories, cd's, posters, etc. on my site...

Where can I buy these things wholesale?

To be more specific, I actually run a Pink Floyd fan site, and would only need Pink Floyd merchandise...

Where could I buy these?

Also: Do I need a license to sell this merchandise or anything like that?

Or would I be able to buy it wholesale, and just automatically be able to sell it on my site.

How about doing a Google search on "pink floyd wholesale merchandise"? It worked for me.....

You might want to be an affiliate and not have to maintain an inventory. Most affiliates make between 2-5% of the purchase, some go up to 20%. Or you can do both. Run the numbers and decide if your margin is good enough to buy the items and resell them.

Yeah, the process and your risk increases greatly if you plan to stock your own inventory. (Do you have space to spare?)

After the webmasterworld conference meeting so many affiliates, I'm changing my business model to drop shipping instead of actually holding inventory except for good sellers only.

Don't you have more risk with drop shipping? What if the merchandise never arrives or arrives damaged? The customer will be fighting with you and the drop shipper will already have the money.
