# You establish an account as a retailer with the distributor you choose.

# You receive images and descriptions of the products you want to sell from the distributor, and post them on your Internet Store or Ebay.

# A customer surfs into your Internet Store, and falls in love with a product that you have priced at, say, $80. They purchase the item with their credit card. Your Store charges their credit card $80 plus your shipping fee.

# You turn around and email the order to your distributor, along with the customer's name and address.

# The distributor sends the product directly to your customer, with YOUR Store's name on the package.

# The distributor charges you the wholesale price of, say, $45.00, plus shipping. The amount of money left over is your profit.

# Your customer gets a cool product from your store shipped to their door with your business name and address! It's just like ordering something online for yourself. The only difference is that the item is going to your customer instead of you.

Q. What is dropshipping?

A(1). A hole down which you throw all the money you can spare until you get discouraged.

A(2). The greatest business on earth; the world is populated with millions of people who will throw money down a whole and all you have to do is set up a 'wholesale drop ship' website, buy stuff at wholesale, mark it up 100% then sell it to your 'clients' who sell it on eBay marked up 5%
