Its because its a dropship design site. There is about a million sites just like it. Many people just look at it once and Know its the same kind of site that they have seen a hundred times.

You will have better luck creating your own site with the same products then use dropship designs layout.

Yep, have to agree with Jimmy.

It screams drop shipper the moment it opens, and what makes it even worse in my opinion is the fact that it seems PROUD to be!.

I believe You have to think of an online shop as you would an offline shop. You have to make it enticing for customers, you have to make them feel welcome and create an interest, create a desire, something that makes them want to explore more, not something that looks like a promotional billboard for drop shipping.

I know you have already spend cash on this set-up, just as many others do as well. Unfortunately without skills in website development you will pay a lot more to develop your own shop layout, but that would be the option I would choose over what you currently have.

Take a look at different shop layouts, ones that aren't focused on drop shipping, and you may find one that you can make your own at a good price.

One thing I noticed is your prices are too dear. I have never see a 1 gig Kingston sd card for $150 and even $30 is dearer then what I can buy it here for. I think you need to do a bit more research on products and their current market value.
I agree with the others your websites boasts dropshipping. It's not even that professional looking. Your dropship company has ripped you off just like they do with everyone. They are the only ones that benefit from dropshipping. Look elsewhere.
I know your funds are limited but start small and buy a few items outright that you know you can profit from and as the profit increases use it to invest into more stock. I know this will take time but anything worthwhile does take time.I wish you all the best. Don't give up just don't start so high. Start small and work your way up.

Just a quick footnote to that, these companies make their money like this.

They don't rely on you selling their over priced goods to make money, they rely on people without much cash coming along wanting to get into the market, and they sell you, and as many others as possible, a cheap priced platform that offers you no potential to make money yourself.

They get your start up budget, and you unfortunately get garbage. Then they use your site to lure more unsuspecting customers.

Sites like these are nothing more than scams, exploiting people new to the game and looking for the most cost effective way in.

They really are just a scam. Nobody can make money from a mass produced product site. They get you on the membership fees and the website setup. They have a program in place that does all the work for them and they just sit back and collect the money. The items on these sites are overpriced. Not even wholesale.

So if you do make a sale they are taking all the profit and you are left with ebay fees on an item that didn't make you squat.I would never sell these items on ebay. The ebay fees alone would eliminate your profit margins and put you into debt.

More then likely I purchased that program 3 years ago. I sold probably 4 items I think they were all digital cameras. By the time the ebay fees caught me I lost about a hundred bucks. They did deliver fast but the prices are just too high if you want to sell on ebay.

I never bought the website package because I had seen several of their sites before. And didn't want to bother with it. If you can get your money back I would do it.

That is not correct.
I started with a drop ship site ( now I have my own site ) but within 4 months of opening my drop ship based site I was making $5000+ per month selling phones ,cameras, camcorders etc here in Australia.
I have moved on to open my own site and am now selling a completely different range but the drop ship site was earning me enough money to give up my job, support my family and save up to get my new site up and running, so I can honestly say that I wasn't scammed.

I can only assume you are making way more than 5000 a month now with your own site seeing that you gave up the drop ship site that was delivering such stunning results, and even changed your profitable product profile completely.

I'm sure some of us would be interested in hearing the drop shippers name, and perhaps a link to your new site to give members a look around would also be good.

Cheers

I think the main discussion here is the dropshiponauction.com site that mass produces websites by the dozens daily.

Dropshipping is good for some. But Most people make little to nothing. Especially if they are trying to market those products to ebay.

If you started with a drop ship site (Drop ship designs)which is a fully automatic system when and IF it works and were making 5000+ A MONTH Why in the world would you get rid of it ? I mean if you can sell those overpriced items that well you would not want to stop the system is pretty much fool proof they mail the products and send you your 5000+ dollars a month no one would just say well I think this month I just wont make my 5000+ dollars because I have saved up my money and by golly I am buying a new site.NO I just dont see that happening.

I tried their program as well and found that it basically sucks. Certainly selling on ebay with their products did, absolutely exactly as Jimmy described, the sales are little to none and the ebay fees for those large ticket items will kill you.
As for your own site....you can find some companies that will help you to build a custom site. It requires your being willing to learn some html skills to put the look together and their help to make it look more customized so it will stand apart from the crowd. I found a few sites and toyed around with their free programs and they looked pretty good, and were pretty reasonable. If I can think of their site addresses I'll post them later. I'm just not ready to put a store, outside of ebay, up until I feel more confident of my inventory and inventory sources. Plus, I think it is prudent to have a bit of cash put aside to promote your site. If it is 8 pages down the google search results, if it even shows up in the google search, you may as well be invisible.
