I’ll be the first one to put my hands up and confess that I am terrible with a lot of things that occur in the daily course of making money on eBay or running a business.
Try first China sourcing. The common fault of people finding for drop shipper is that they are not concerned on what product that they will retail. Remember that you cannot sell on the product that you don’t believe in. you cannot rely on drop shipper only, but you must have an idea of what you want to sell.
A good supplier is the backbone of a strong dropshipping business. Without quality, unique products you’re never going to succeed. That’s why I’m always amazed at how many people fall for common middleman product sources. You can find them all over the first pages of Google. They tote thousands of products, great wholesale prices, and easy money. The problem is that they are not real wholesalers, but rather middlemen. They probably charge monthly fees, on top of the marked up wholesale pricing they provide. After you sign up, you’ll soon notice that these same items are selling on eBay for less than your “wholesale” cost. Not to mention that they are absolutely everywhere.
If your distributors successfully drop ship for you, it can be a win-win situation for the two of you. You will not have to stock your e-bay inventory and your distributor will not have to worry about the retail sales.
It is possible to use the Internet to find a reliable wholesale supplier. Now, please to label me a hypocrite, because I know I stated earlier that most of the people on the Internet are scammers, which is true. However, there are communities of people that are willing to share their knowledge and help you take your eBay business to the next level.
Their customer service is top notch and they will help you in your dealings with the individual suppliers, especially when you can’t find a supplier for a particular product that you are searching for.
Drop ship clothing sales are exploding all over the Internet, and you would be wise to check out this important trend. You can offer low-volume and specialty items that you were afraid to stock before, and will never get stuck with merchandise that does not sell. Give drop shipping a try, you’ll find it a great way to earn extra sales.
