Hi Chris,

Weird but when I keyed in Tricod Electronic GmbH unto my my browser and pressed enter, I was directed to this site Link hidden: Login to view - A German site with the same address indicated on their Alibaba profile.

They seem to be on a lot of scam lists! With that info plus their payment methods, I would say forget about the price list and just walk away.

Hope this helps. All the best :)

hi richelle thanks for the info. I received a price list and prices seem fair but i get a bad feeling about them. I think ill take your advice tho and stay clear. I am really keen to find a dropshipper of laptops mid to high spec that delivers worldwide doesnt want a tax id,(im testing markets at the moment) and accepts paypal or something with fair profit margins i can put faith in not to rip me off, i have a few foreign friends who say i can make alot of money on certain items in there country so if takes off i would then get a tax id. Do you think you can help me. Also the same with brand name clothing as i know a country that will pay good money for these goods. Thank you again and i hope you can help :)

Hi Chris,

Below are a few dropshippers (ships internationally and does not require tax ID) that might have the products you are interested in -

Sorry but I could not filter those that accepted PayPal, we have not added this option to our search filters. You will need to check directly with the supplier of your choice. But all of our suppliers DO accept safe payment methods.
