What you have just said is exactly what i meant to say. hahaha
If people supply just to the same country as the suppliers are in, this way delivery will be quicker, prices stay a little lower and customers will be happy. The internet is a big place, just like the world. You dont have to live in a country to supply products to them.
Fudjj i think you hit what i am trying to say
I think you are 100% correct, but there are issues as to how to put that option into play, apart from drop shipping of course.
As I said, it is something we are trying to do by linking a network of international Service Agents together, but our network is aimed at auction goods. The benefits our Service Agents will be able to provide customers include not only sourcing products for resale, but also providing them with an international shipping option, goods forwarding to save on double shipping, as well as an international selling option where the reseller will be able to make the sale in the same country of purchase through the Service Agent.
I am yet to see any service combine all of the above options as we are attempting to do, which I believe are required to provide a reseller with a total marketing solution.
While we have been focused purely on the auction side in developing our network, I can't see any reason that we can't encourage our Service Agents to extend their service to other avenues. Looking at it from our Service Agents point of view, it is just more business for them, and of course it would open up even more opportunities for resellers.
I'll be giving this a lot of thought to see how we can open up the network to other opportunities for resellers, along with our primary source of auction house goods.
Would be good to see some further feedback on this one.
