I am not using ebay, instead I am using a personal web site, so when we are drop shipping products, where do we get the photos to promote the items?

When I was dropshipping I would use a google search for the product in question and click the picture search. I would then use the best Picture I could find and copy it. Then I would upload it to a photobucket account which you can get for free and link it directly to my auction.

Thanks for replying Jimmy, it's crossed my mind but aren't stock photos copyrite? What about the droppship wholesaler's, do you know if they ever provide the photos?

Yes you should be able to copy directly from your dropshipper you are using just by right clicking the image and 'save as' to your computer.

Just look for pictures that you wont find from a manufacturer link. They only push copyrights on images they take. But i have rarely had any problems using manufacturers images.

If you find a different picture from another site then you should be ok. If your bold you could even goto a store and take pictures of the item right off the shelf lol.
