I'm brand new to Amazon selling, considered FBA but thought I'd get my feet wet with drop shipping to start.
In the past few days, I've launched a few products. I'm feeling a bit nervous because the wholesaler has no notes on inventory. I tested out the cart on the wholesalers site and entered '1000' units as a test and there was no note indicating stock was limited, or the like.
I contacted the supplier and there is no way they can notify me of product volume, which makes it a bit of a gamble.
To this point, I've seen some sellers put a note in their listing similar to: "CONTACT!! ORDERS(at) ~~ WITH ASIN!!BEFORE ORDERING"
Would this be why? Is this a means for the reseller to check on stock before completing an order? If so, is this standard practice or does it adversely affect one's advertisement in any way?
Thanks in advance,
