OK. So I have found a dropshipper willing to dropship pet supplements etc. and i also found a dropshipper that is willing to dropship self defense items AND hidden security cameras (e.g. Teddy bear cams, tasers, etc.)

Both I think, is going to make a great profit and account history.
But problem is, how should i name my store to reflect that i sell both, and is it OK to do so? I know for sure the suppliers do not care what i sell on my webstore, the pet supplement company actually requires me to have a store name on amazon before my DS account is approved.

I also do not know which option to take up on:

The Pro seller on amazon, in which you have to pay $39.99 /month + other selling fees

Or the Individual seller, in which you have to pay 0.99/ sale + other selling fees

I'm going to list what amazon says for how to get paid:

PRO Sellers
Amazon first settles your account 14 days after you register. Subsequently, the settlement process repeats every 14 days. It normally takes 5 business days from the settlement until the money is available in your bank account.
Individual Sellers
Generally, Amazon Services first settles your account 21 days after you register with Seller Central. Subsequently, the settlement process repeats every 7 days. Each automatic weekly disbursement will reflect the net proceeds for orders you confirmed as shipped between 14 and 21 days prior to the disbursement date.

Individual Sellers
Generally, Amazon Services first settles your account 21 days after you register with Seller Central. Subsequently, the settlement process repeats every 7 days. Each automatic weekly disbursement will reflect the net proceeds for orders you confirmed as shipped between 14 and 21 days
prior to the disbursement date.

I'm also guessing, as a PRO seller, you are marketed by Amazon in the top rankings etc.

My second order of business is paypal.

I DO have a paypal, although it is a personal one. I used to have another, but it got banned from the listings on eBay i put up, as i didn't know the item i was sellingw as prohibited (this was a couple years ago)

So i have started all from scratch from my phone number to my IP address.

Are there any fees for just holding a Business paypal and should i add my personal bank to it?

I am basically on a shoestring budget right now, and the more $ saved, the better.

Thank you,

Victor


P.S
I probably have more to ask, but i forgot it already. I will post it later. In the meantime, can someoen help me answer these questiosn?

Hi Victor,

That's great news! Congrats on finding 2 suppliers that suit your needs!

Ideally your business name or store name should somehow reflect your business as it will give your business' identity especially in search result rankings :)

You might find the tips in this Link hidden: Login to view helpful in coming up with an effective store name!

If this is your first time selling and seeing you mentioned you are on a budget, you might want to start out listing as an individual seller and see how things turn out in terms of sales before registering as a PRO seller (and paying the monthly fees).

For online payments not requiring the acceptance of credit card payments your personal PayPal account will suffice. But if you intend on accepting credit card payments you might want to explore the premier or business account.

Hope this helps!
