it puts me off that you can not see any details of prices or even the stock without paying this makes me hear warning bells but maybe im too cynical

Yeah, haven't heard of them personally, but that is one of the most extreme monthly membership fees I have ever seen!

I deal in games and I know what volume I need to buy in to get a price even close to allowing a small margin on eBay, so I can't begin to imagine how a Drop Shipper will be able to supply prices that would give you any margin at all.

That aside, I would never go in blind like they are wanting. If they aren't prepared to show good faith and provide you with prices upfront, then they have something to hide in my opinion!

I've worked in marketing for many years, and the art of marketing is to make a product or service sound as good as it possible can, while reducing the focus on any negatives. These guys are promoting the negatives and hiding any positives, which indicates to me that there are ZERO positives to promote!

You should do a whois database check on them before anything, that will give you vital research information.

personally would stay clear, there are many free dropship companies if you do a google search.

i received several emails from these inviting me to a selected place on there books.

but for the fee they want not a chance

you can probably get all the games cheaper on sites such as amazon and ebay making them impossible to sell on either site

Hi swiftly,

Sorry I'm not familiar with the supplier. Can you perhaps provide us their site URL so we can have a look for you?

Although, fudjj's and Paul's tips are already quite helpful. Knowing these guys I would seriously consider their advise :)

Cheers!

I have not signed up and the posts above mirror my exact feelings to start with but I like to think that this may have helped someone else unsure of them

Hi swifty8019,

I couldn't really find anything positive to use to encourage you or anyone to join this company. I think I'll stick with what I said in my previous post -

Also, paper bills flying in the air (their site header) like that doesn't really look convincing at all :(

Anyway thanks for sharing the link! All the best.
