Okay, so I'm new to this but I feel very, very confident about my chances of being profitable. Thinking outside the box....not relying 100% on ebay, using local options, getting into sub-niches, etc. However, I have one big concern....
I have recently signed up for about 10 different dropshippers. All of them have different merchandise and I wanted to just get the application processes out of the way. The problem, or at least what I think is a problem, is that I don't 'feel' like im getting some great deal or special treatment when I register. If anything, I feel like I'm just like any other 'consumer' rather than a 'wholesaler' or 'reseller' -- if that makes any sense. To me, it just seems too easy to sign up and start selling wholesale goods at retail prices.
Perhaps I am missing something or am doing something wrong. Could it be that I am actually signing up for a 'consumer' account rather than a 'dropshipper/wholesaler' account -- or is it just all in my head?
For instance, is there a 'special' way to contact these website owners and dealers to get those 'low, low' rates, such as via email and telephone....or is signing up for an account, placing orders, and then rinse & repeat the normal way to do things as a dropshipper.
Alright...I hope this has made some sense and any feedback you can send my way is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
P.S. Sorry about the quotes...I know I overuse them, but I like to emphasize, sue me.
