Hi there! I wonder if you are one of my referrals? I've had several australian customers recently and I just thought I'd make note of it.

Anyhow to get started, all you really need is a good dropshipper. Find one of those and try out the group called ChinaVision. I reccomend them because they have alot of items in stock!

ChinaVision will also have alot of the more uncommon items. I started to consider that they are the Walmart of China but stopped short of that. They do have every smaller niche items, particularly MP3 products and phone parts and odds and ends. They also offer everything at bargain wholesale level.

Well most of everything I'd say. I would reccomend them to most who are just starting. If you have any other questions feel free to PM me. MP3/phone/wireless accessories are hotter sellers lately.

Helloo Salehoo people

Im new to this and theres one important question i have regaurding international shipping.

If i buy a porduct from another country and get it shipped to my country, Dos shipping and the shipping cost include the product being droped off at my home address? Or dos it just get deliverd to the airport? Or the nearest post office to where it is shipped?
Or Are there extra costs to get the product to my address. from where it was shipped to?

Many thanks to any one that can help anyone can give me

Hello I only have but one suggestion: Do NOT use export menu as a dropshipper! I have lost a lot of money using them. They used to have a 100% satisfaction guarantee until I needed to get a refund, then they all of a sudden don't have that anymore!!
