Hello, I am relatively new to SaleHoo, but I have been reading into dropshipping and online business for a while. Basically, I am a college student trying to pick up a little extra cash on the side. I am looking for some advice from experienced dropshippers. I have yet to try for myself, but I have been trying to do my research on these different dropshippers and wholesalers. Can someone maybe give me a few tips to guide me in the right direction as to where to buy and even what website I would have the most luck in selling. Again, I am just trying to ease into this and get a feel for how it works. Any advice is appreciated.

I would suggest you PM 'Planes', he is just kicking off his drop shipping service and you may well find his information handy.

You can visit Plane's site at Link hidden: Login to view

You can also PM 'jg42122', Jason knows the industry inside out and I'm sure would be able to give you some solid advice in the field of drop shipping.

Has anyone used EZ Auction product ordering system?

What is your comment on this drop shipping service? Are they reliable?
I'm quite confused with their shipping costs. I read it somewhere that it says a flat rate of $2 will be charged. But on their form, it says EZDropship.com will bill you at your cost plus shipping.

Can someone help me on this?

Hi corp8118,

I haven't personally used any of the services offered by EZDropship.com, but I did a quick research for you and I'll try my best to address each of your concerns:

EZDropship.com is one of the many dropping sites for Premier Products International. Premier Products Int'l s an eBay Certified Service Provider since 2006. They offer a wide range of quality products coupled with a fast and reliable service. Just for your reference, one of their dropshipping sites is currently listed as a verified supplier here on SaleHoo. Feel free to check them out by visiting this link: Link hidden: Login to view

The EZ Auction product ordering system is EZDropship.com's name for their dropshipping program. It actually works pretty much like most dropshipping programs found on other sites, where you register, then choose from the list of products they have, list it on your site/store and once you get a sale you process the order through there system and they'll take care of the rest. They do have a pretty hassle free system and do offer detailed inventory and stock level information, plus email alerts when out-of-stock items become available or when new products are about to arrive.

So far, I wasn't be to come across any negative feedbacks about their EZ auction ordering system.:)

The US$2 is a handling fee that is not included in but charged on top of the actual shipping cost. You will be billed for the actual shipping cost of an item. You may obtain a shipping rate for your customers by visiting the Product Page, clicking on the picture of whatever you are inquiring about, and a UPS window will appear allowing you to enter the zip code you may be shipping to.

Hope this helps! Cheers :)

Ezdropshipp is one of the most reliable dropshippers online today. But i want you to be aware that if you are new to ebay or if you have a feedback of less than 100 with at least 98% possitive score, that your funds will be held by paypal untill the item is delivered to your buyer.

Alot of new sellers turn to dropshippers, with the notion that they can list the item, sell the item, and pay the dropshipper with the buyers money.
WRONG! paypal will freeze the buyers money untill your item is shipped and delivered, and thats only prvideing you give tracking numbers. if not, you will not get any of that money released untill the buyer gives you poss. feedback.

Ive seen countless new sellers ruined by this misconception.

so if you are planning to use a dropshipper, just be sure you have enough funds to cover all of the items, you sell, plus shipping!
