Hi everyone,
I joined yesterday and I'm completely new to all this drop shopping and whoesale selling stuff and I don't have a clue on how to start withall this.

I'm just wondering if there is anyone out there who started out not knowing the first thing about all this and can explain to me in plain english what to do.

Thank you

Hi, I'm just starting too. But I can tell you, dropshipping is where the customer purchases the product off you on, for example eBay, and then you contact the supplier, pay them and the product is shipped straight to the bidders door.
Wholesale means you will get it for cost price but you may have to set up an account with the supplier and buy the product first, get it shipped to your house, before you can ship it to the bidder.

Well you can get the pictures direct from the dropshippers website. Just make sure your not using copyrighted pictures. Almost all dropshippers have pictures you can use in your descriptions.
