Has anyone had any success dropshipping ?
I sold a few items on ebay using an american dropshipper ,I made a few bucks here an there but the profit margins were very small.

yeh i would like some feedback on this method, might be buying a business within the next few weeks and wondering whether to dropship or not?

I see that is better since u dont have to hold stock although im sure its not as cheap to do it that way. and i guess u are sacrificing product to consumer time.

umm anyone had any experience with this? nick? :)

Did anyone see the tumbleweed ?.....
I guess 4 months wait for a reply isnt so bad :shock:
All jokes aside , I gave up on dropshipping months ago as the competition on ebay was way too stiff.
My competitors were selling below the price i was paying wholesale.
They were obviously buying in bulk.
Claw..what type of business are you looking at buying?
Are you catering to international customers?

the business im looking at buying is a sex toy business. apparently most products have up to 100% mark up on them which, i guess means dropshipping maybe feasible.

just looking at other sites and comparing prices, and it should work. Since the business will be new and i dont have a gell of alot of money for investment, i think dropshipping will be the way to go.

just have to see what i can get the business for and take it from there.'

thanks for the reply :)
