I noticed that the dropshipping costs are outrageous from various suppliers and I was wondering what the trick to it is. Best markets? Any highly recommended dropshipping companies?

If you are looking for drop shipping success stories you might find a few, but don't expect to be knocked over in the rush!

I'm new here and am just starting to open up a couple on-line stores. I'm also considering opening store on eBay. I have a lot of experience buying on eBay, but not selling.

I don't want to have to deal with shipping and packaging, so I'm looking for a dropshipper that has no fees involved, blind dropships, single items, and services both US and Canada.

I'm Canadian and have checked into a number of dropshippers, but most of them don't ship to Canada or their prices are too high.

Anyone know of a good dropshipper that meets the above requirements?

Also, with eBay changing their policies and procedures is it worthwhile to open a store. I've heard from numerous people on eBay that do have stores, that they are barely getting by, sales are extremely slow. etc. One would think with Christmas coming up they would be selling more now than before.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi kary

yeah ebay is getting a bit ridiculous, luckily I live in Australia and we have a site much the same as Ebay but for Australian users only. The listing and selling costs at this site are less than a quarter of ebay.

As I am not on ebay anymore I will give you a tip that will help

I have been selling from this company and dropshipping for over 2 years and have only ever had one item not delivered to my customer. Their prices are low and you can make a good profit.

Also the items that they sell you can put your own designs etc on so they are unique to you.

the site is Link hidden: Login to view they are located in Hong Kong

Just remember not to put anything on ebay that may be copyright as they do pick it up as I found out the hard way.

What I mean by this is dont put an image on a watch like a ford logo or a football team logo as this is illegal on ebay.

Also on ebay is you open a store you can list things in the store for much less than an auction or a buy it now.

I hope this information helps Kary and good luck to you
