Hi there,

I only found out about drop-shipping 2 weeks back when a firm asked me if I could do it because the minimum wholesale quantity I quoted her ( 8 chairs) was too high as they did not have storage. Now If a buyer only wants one item and expects us to pay for
1. manufacture,
2. shipping,
3. warehousing
4. storage
and then freight to their customer, what sort of price is fair to both parties? I have in mind a figure of $400 with us paying the freight
RRP is $600. At this price they have been selling well from my web site. Been online since 1997 and have been frandfathered in to Yahoo so I have never laid out any funds for advertising, PPC or any of that crap.

Sounds like a fair price. Do you have people selling them on eBay?

It may be an opportunity for someone if not ;)
