Hi there!

I joined SaleHoo in the hopes of opening my own Ebay store, selling various items.

Dropshipping was my prefered choice over Wholesaling, but I am finding it very hard to contact Aussie Dropship companies so that I can get the go ahead to start advertising their products.
So, I have a few questions...

* Do I need the companies approval to advertise their products with a marked up price for Drop shipping?

* Am I allowed to use their photo's and descriptions of the product, or do I need to re-write it myself?

* Can anyone reccomend any AUSTRALIAN companies that allow Drop shipping. I want to open a variety Ebay store, so I am basically after any decent/sellable products.


Thanks!

Hi Mad_Missi,

I will do my best to address your concerns satisfactorily. Please refer to my answers below -

* Do I need the companies approval to advertise their products with a marked up price for Drop shipping?

Ideally yes, you need to register a dropshipping account to starting dropshipping a supplier's products.

* Am I allowed to use their photo's and descriptions of the product, or do I need to re-write it myself?

After you register, most if not all of them will readily allow you to copy both the product photo and description.

But personally, I would recommend that you update the product description to make your listing stand out from the rest. I mean we all know that many sellers will dropship products from the same dropshipper. So it would definitely give you an edge if you offered something different!

* Can anyone reccomend any AUSTRALIAN companies that allow Drop shipping. I want to open a variety Ebay store, so I am basically after any decent/sellable products.

Here are a few dropshippers based in Australia that may have products you are interested in selling -

Thanks for your reply, but I have already contacted every Australian company in the Directory, and have only had 2 replies, and neither of them sound appealing as the shipping cost is a little expensive.

I am starting to think that this is not for me...
