Wondering if someone who has had success with drop shipping can send me in the right direction...

If you were starting from 0 how would you proceed?

Hi Richard,

I don't have a success story to share but just a few tips that may (hopefully) help you find success in drop shipping :)

There are 5 basic steps -

1. Find a supplier - You can start exploring our directory if you haven't already. Look for a dropshipper that suits your needs. This might help in your hunt - Link hidden: Login to view

2. Select products from your new supplier's range - Check that your supplier offers a wide range for you to choose from and be sure these are in stock.

3. Get a tax ID

4. Choose a selling platform - You have many platforms to choose from. We'll leave this up to you :)

5. Manage your listings
