I read a lot of post and a lot of replies and obviously no one understands what the people are asking. I thought I would try to see if you any one could answer truthfully!

ARE THERE ANY REAL DROP SHIPPERS AND WHOLESALERS WHO ARE NOT MIDDLE MEN OR THE LIKE THAT CAN GIVE A GOOD PRICE SO THAT A PERSON CAN COMPETE REASONABLLY ON EBAY?

I ASSUMED THAT THIS SITE WAS CREATED FOR SUCH ANSWERS AND SO FAR I AM NOT SEEING GOOD ANSWERS.

IF THERE ARE NONE, PLEASE SAY SO AND I WILL UNDERSTAND AND TAKE MY TIME AND MONEY ELSEWHERE BUT IF THERE IS PLEASE TELL ME AND DON'T WASTE MY TIME WITH COMPANIES THAT DON'T OFFER LEGITIMATE PRICES.

I thank you in advance for your negative or positive replies!

A lot of dropshippers sell at close to retail prices. They do offer specials from time to time. When dropshipping bulk is usually the best way to make money. You have to sell sell sell for very little profit. Sometimes dropshipping prices are had to do because of the steep bulk buyers on ebay. You have to rely on your ratings in order to get people to buy at your higher prices. Just some info from my expierance. Results do vary.

As the other guy mentioned dropshippers do are usually middle men. They take the risk of buying in bulk, stocking the inventory and then try to resell it. If you want lower prices you need to buy in bulk. You could try Link hidden: Login to view for clothing. There bulk lots are quite cheap. Otherwise look for suppliers in China listed on salehoo. Buy a case of a 1000 items and you should be able to make a reasonable profit on ebay or own your own site. Just don't plan on getting rich overnight.
