Hello, Im new to all of this selling on ebay with drop-shipping. One of my potential customers gave me his phone # to talk about the item I'm selling. Since I dont actually have the item on me and dont even know how to use the thing. Im afraid to call. Does anyone have an suggestions to help me out with this and any future transactions. Thanks. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

hi,

tell him to write his questions in a e-mail, and then you can ask you dropshipping partner.

After that you can answer to your customer.
No problem :-)

It is not simple to sale products, if you don´t know nothing about it...

Good luck.

Hey

thanks Nadia for the feedback. Unfortanely, the listings over and no one brought the thing but in the future Ill make certain 2 b more informed about the stuff Im selling.

I got a membership to a website that has put 2gether a list of separate suppliers I can use who dropship. I deal with them but theyre not too forthcoming: as in giving me their suppliers real company name or url so I can contact them. BUt that websites registered with the bbb with a good rating. they do their job so I can't complain much. Im losing my green :mrgreen: :)

I have a membership to doba.com. Does anyone on here do business with them. I pretty sure that they are just middlemen. Anyone have a comment? I would appeciate the feedback so if they r bad then I can cancel my membership.

I tried Doba.com during their 7 day trial, and they are definately middlemen. Their prices are soooo high, not even close to wholesale. Some prices are over retail, and they also charge a dropshipping fee and charge you every month. They are not real dropshippers; they make their money from the fees they charge. Any website that claims to be a dropshipper, and charges a fee per dropship and charges you every month are not real dropshippers are just middlemen. To name a couple of other middlemen like doba; megagoods.com, netdropshipper.com. Don't waist your time with these companies; they're prices are ridiculously too high. You'll hardly make a profit, especially if you plan on selling their items on ebay. My advise is to cancel your membership.

I tried doba for the 7 day trial and it was NOT a good experience. The Xbox 360 retail price is NOT $600 and they want to sell it for $450 when it really retails for $399.99! A lot of the prices on there area WAY too high and the MONTHLY membership kinda ads up to a lot over a year. I have only used SaleHoo for about 4 days and I have found awesome sources and I know they are secure. Doba is really a HUGE waste of time, there is no way ANYONE can actually make money by buying items above retail price. Look around on Salehoo and do some research. A good tip is to find a site on Salehoo and then go to Alexa.com and look up their site info and go to the ' People who visit this site also visit' list. There you will find other good sources too, just watch out for the fake people out there. Well good luck to you!

Too bad I didn't back out sooner when I was in the trial period. They called my up and offered me a discount price for one year for $280. :x And I took it. :oops:
Yeah their prices are high and I will try to cancel my membership asap. I researched a lot of there products and didn't found many profitable products.
Hey thanks SC and Dreamer 148 and Alexa.com is very useful.

Ouchie! Thats a lot of money, thats why I usually use a fake phone number on those contact things. Um try to get your money back, because really you don't need doba at all, trust me. Use your time wisely to find sites on Salehoo and use THAT money to buy some good products at wholesale prices ;)

I've been a member of Hienote Inc. for about 2 months now, and so far ive been pleased. What they do is provide a list of wholesalers who offer dropshipping. They check these sites out personally(at least they say they do)
you still have to do alot of research, but they are pretty resonable as far as membership goes. I believe its like 19.99$ for a years membership

Yeah, thanks for the tips and websites. hienote.com looks really good. Hadn't looked at assiemoneymakers.com yet but sounds tempting to sell e-books. (no shipping costs). But on my refund, them F****** doba people wont give me a refund and I hadn't even bought one item from them yet. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Word to the wise, stay away from doba.com unless you like paying high prices; high shipping; and dropshipping fees.

And even when you do come across something that is well priced and sells well it is usally out of stock. Now I'm just trying to make up ground else where any suggestions..... :D

Hello, I recently joined clubdropship and it was a bad deal.So, after it was to late i started looking around the internet and found not one good word about them, but more importantly i read that they are also DOBA in diguise.If you go to the ebay blogs you will find lots of people trashing them both.Also dogpile.com is a good place to find dirt on anything.I guess sometimes you just have to risk the money til you find what your looking for.I just joined salehoo today,I hope it's good.Good luck!

Stay away from Doba.com...
All I did was lose money on listing fees with them
on Ebay. There merchandise is priced to high. I was selling watches and found out that one of there secret supplier wharehouses is actually OverStock.com. When you actually do manage to sell something it takes 10 days for the buyer to get it.
Your better off owning and having the items in your possesion , at least you can answer buyers questions and not worry wether Doba's wharehouses even have the item in stock after you sold it.

OH YEAH!! I had my experience with DOBA.....I was on my day 3 trial and the little em eff ers kept calling me.....so I blocked the number.....well on day 6 they called using another number!!!! Boy I tell you they are some desperate people.......I wish there was some way to bring that company down, after everything I hear from everyone on how they ripped people off. I wish some hacker would get em good.

So anyway they called me and I answered, I told them I am not interested in their over priced Items and to leave me alone cause i'm not signing up......well this person was like 'I doubt you looked through all of our 250,000 items already.'

I'll tell you what, I didn't look at 250,000 items but I came pretty close. I told them they are over priced and cannot compete with other internet marketers.

Sooooooo there is my 72 cents of information......hope I save someone's money!!

PS to the mods......can I post my ebay auction that i have going right now after I post a message?

Hello to all who have replied and viewed my thread. I haven't been selling for a while so I haven't really been on too much.

Up-Date:

I still have doba but I just recently filed a complaint the the bbb and hopefully I can get so of my money back from them. They have inconsistent information and bad prices so I haven't even tried to sell any of their stuff. I haven't even looked at their website for about two months now.

I am suprised so many people actually looked at this thread. Almost 1000 views. So thanks for all the feedback; it has been really helpful to me and hopefully everyone else here.

Good luck to all trying to make themselves more money. :D
