A Dropshipper is someone who will anonymously send the goods you order to your customer! There are no markings on the box and no invoices enclosed! Finding a reliable dropshipper can prove to be a strenuous task. When selecting a Dropshipper you want to be sure to find someone that has a large inventory and quickly replenishes items that become sold out!
You also want to find someone that is helpful and knowledgeable about the products they are selling! Make sure to contact them before you consider reselling their items, see how quickly you get a response and how helpful the response is! Remember this is the same service you can expect once you are in business with them! If it is less than your standards consider using someone else!
How do you find a Dropshipper? There are several ways to find a Dropshipper perhaps the easiest is to purchase a list from an online auction! Thoroughly read the context of the ad and ask questions if need be. Make sure you are buying the list you need! Once you have made your purchase you will receive a list of contacts that you can easily view without having to find them one by one! I personally sell Dropship Lists on Ebay at www.stores. ebay.com/Dropship-Specialists , to give you an idea what to look for. For the most part they are already thoroughly checked out, and deemed to be good upstanding Dropshippers.
The second, more time consuming method is to do your research! Use the various search engines and type in keywords like “dropship" and specific keywords to the category you are thinking of selling for example “electronics"! This will take a lot more time. Make sure that when visiting the website you thoroughly read their policies! Do not commit to anything until you have done all of your research!
Once you have found a reliable Dropshipping source, you are ready to start selling. The research is gruelling but in the long run you will be rewarded! Statistics say that 9 out of 10 online businesses fail in the first 3 months. Being well prepared will optimize your chances for success!
