Hi Alice; I wish to add that even though most suppliers whom dropship and give permission to use their product images and descriptions, don't always have additional images of the product one wishes to list. I personally find this quite frustrating as we all know that when selling on an auction site like Ebay, buyers often want to see more than one image of the item they're considering in purchasing! I work with 3 dropshippers, and I find myself constantly having to request additional photos of my items as buyers request them. The items that I list are high end accessories and too expensive not to have the appropriate number of images if I want to make a sale. However, if you are selling items which may not cost too much to buy at wholesale, think about purchasing some of these items as samples, and then take all the additional pictures yourselves, especially if you know that these items are good sellers. This is what I do, at times. And the result, these are the items which sell the best at all times. Furthermore, there are dropship suppliers whom will charge to send you additional photos, as they may hire a professional photographer. Always check this out with your dropshipper, and always read all their Terms and Conditions, Shipping, Payments, Returns and Refund policies. If in doubt, always ask lots of questions before you commit to display their products. Reply
Hello Alice, Great suggestions. One more for Andrea: Visit the suppliers' website and download the pictures and descriptions you like. Use http://tinypic.com, or any other free piictures hosting websites on the web, to store, organize and manage your pictures. Hope this also helps. Good Luck. Kosta kjankovski@gmail.com Reply

My sister and I recently joined Salehoo seeking drop shippers for our new web site. We were looking for a drop shipper of women's apparel, but found none, with the style or price range we were seeking. You would think that ladies clothing and accessories would be a easy categories. Do you have any suggestions for drop shippers of ladies apparel? We really need help........ Reply

Hi Linette, Yes, it is oftentimes harder than one would think. What type of ladies clothing were you looking for? We have a number of good suppliers although when you prefer to do dropshipping only your options may get cut into half. But there are wholesalers that do not require an MOQ so you can order the items one piece at a time. If you wish to discuss this further, feel free to email us at http://www.salehoo.com/support Cheers! Reply
