What is Drop Shipping

Dropshipping is one of the most appealing forms of doing business today, and it is quite simple. A dropshipper is a manufacturer or wholesale company that supplies and warehouses products. With dropshipping, you sell a dropshipper’s products online using a platform such as eBay, Amazon, or a website. When you sell a product, you simply turn around and place the order with the dropshipper, and they ship the product directly to your customer - without you ever touching the product.

This allows you to run your business without the headache and financial stresses that accompany a traditional business. Once you see how it works, you'll understand that it is one of the easiest ways to start up a business quickly, with less money and lower risk.

Setting up a relationship like this with a supplier is invaluable. Just think - you don't have to worry about storing inventory, packaging items, shipping anything out, or even paying upfront for anything while it sits in your warehouse (or your garage or basement). You are working directly with the dropshipper, so there is no middleman taking a cut of your profits. It's very quick and easy to start up, and you do not need to make a financial commitment to products that may not even sell. With this arrangement, you are able to test-sell products through multiple dropshippers without any financial risk. You can literally start a dropshipping business in your own home, without handling any product.

The main benefit of dropshipping is that you do not have to pay for a product until AFTER you sell it and receive payment from your customer. It’s one of the most convenient ways to run a business.

Setting up a dropshipping-based business does not eliminate the need for work, but it definitely makes it easier. With the tools and services that we offer, you can very easily find suppliers and products, and save yourself valuable time that you can instead use to promote your business and increase your bottom line.

Standard for Wholesale Suppliers

We hold our suppliers to strict standards. We rate them based on the following:

  • Product Selection
  • Profit Margin
  • Speed of Shipping
  • Return Policies
  • Restocking Fees
  • Amount of Contact Information - Phone, Email, Fax, etc.
  • Quality Control

If your supplier is not meeting your expectations or shipping their products out to your customers in a timely manner, let us know. We are committed to making sure you receive quality customer service from the suppliers in our directory. If we cannot resolve the problem with a supplier, they will immediately be removed from our directory.

Directory Maintenance

As mentioned above, we are constantly updating our directory with new qualified dropship and wholesale suppliers. As additional suppliers meet our stringent requirements and are qualified to be in our directory, we add them. Other dropship services act as a middleman, hide the names of their suppliers from you, and make commission off your sales. But with us, we aim for transparency, and there is no hiding of information. We provide you with all the supplier contact information and link you up directly to them. We also provide detailed content that will teach you exactly how to handle the process of dropshipping online.
