: I dropship ink cartridges in Oz, mainly as a training ground for when I find a decent product. The suggestion about eBay in the US seems sound as long as you can appreciate that fixing problems will be more difficult. Not sure about the tax situation also.
I have found a range of Chinese suppliers prior to signing up to SaleHoo. All seem to be fly by night, so take the profit when you can, and at some time expect problems. SaleHoo suppliers seem to be standard ones you can find on Chinese promotional sites, so not sure if any protection is afforded there.
If you do drop ship in the states would be interested in the tax implications.
Bottom line on dropshipping is that margins are always slim as you don't take the risk on inventory. If you want to improve the margins you have to buy stock.
