The Dropshipping Business

I was briefly into selling on eBay a few years back. This was the first time I've heard about dropshipping which looked to be a really promising business. Basically, you don't have to stock on inventory when you're selling on eBay, all you have to do is find a dropshipper . The dropshipper will provide you with your needed products at a very cheap price then it's up to you which amount will you add as your profit. You place the for sale ad or auction ad on eBay and when a customer orders it, you place your order for that product with the dropshipper, and they will be the ones who will handle the shipping directly to your customer.

I was sold. I scoured the internet for dropshippers but it seems that I couldn't find anything. On eBay, they're even selling dropshipping lists but I was too smart to buy those. I figured a good search will probably yield the results. Sadly, I couldn't find a reliable dropshipper to buy my ebay products and those I've found were actually middle men and the price they're asking are just too high to compete on eBay.

It's too bad that I was over my eBay selling obsession because I found a dropshipper that seems to have real potential: shopster.com. Shopster.com can drop ship electronics, clothing, toys, accessories, etc. The good thing about this website is that you can use their services for free for 7 days. After that, if you're not satisfied or if you think that their prices are just too high that you can't sell them on ebay, you can always opt out at the end of the seven day trial.

So if you think you can handle selling on eBay, you can always try out Shopster.com or scour the internet for other dropshippers.
