This week's question from is Andrea: "When drop shipping items, how can I get photos of products which I am selling?"
Susana on 17:44 15 JunHi 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.
