Hello, I'm been looking.....and looking for good dropshipping companies to deal with. Haven't signed up as of yet with any of them and I do read the forums on here and I have found some great advice.
But as of today I have seen no mention of this website I found called simplix.com
They claim they have over 60 million products straight from the manufactuer and to become a client with them you need to fill out some general information and a rep of theirs will call you to further the process. They have many name brand companies listed as who they do business with. No idea if they charge a fee or even a monthly fee, nothing on the site tells you that.

I know there has to be some good dropshipping companies out there cause if you just take for example Dell Laptops on ebay and watch they are selling like hotcakes for anywhere from $350 to over $600!!!

Their fees are almost $300.00. You can find good if not better sites here on Salehoo.

I dont think ive ever heard a good thing about simplex from salehoo members. Too costly to setup and not worth the trouble.

What would be in your honest opinion the best site to deal with that has merchandise that everyone and their mother else isn't selling? I am willing to pay a fee to get access to goods that are not everywhere already.

Welcome to drop shipping!

If you were the only person on the planet that was drop shipping, you might have a small chance at finding something with some profit that people would actually buy.

Unfortunately in your case, you are not the only one on the planet that wants to drop ship, and therefore the chances of actually finding anything that you can make money on that isn't already being distributed by the other 6 billion drop shipping agents is approximately................bubtcus!!!

But good luck trying :)

Yes unfortunately dropshipping has quickly turned into a very hard business to get into. Unless you are well established this market is very hard to turn a profit from. There are some salehoo members that make a income from this and They will tell you its not easy.


Still the best way to make online incomes if from buying liquidations and bulk. Eg pallets and truckloads of liquidations.

I did a post on this company a while back. Simplx is listed on every scam and fraud alert site that I know of and that's quite a few. I quit even looking after they turned up on 8 scam alert sites in a row. I would say that they rank way of on the top of the 'rip-off' list.

Definately run in the other direction.

I am another to agree not to sign up with simplx.com, if I remember correctly, they claim to be a dropshipper, but they really aren't, as they are a middleman company kind of like doba.com, except they charge an initiation fee just to tell you how they work, and then after all the fees are paid for, your out nearly 3 to 5 quid.... it can get ugly, thats why I joined Salehoo... honest, one time low membership fee, no catches like simplx or doba...

doba, simplix, and so on are all middlemen. Don't waste your time. forget dropshipping. This business will not work if you take a easy way. If your profit margin is too low, you are dealing with a middleman.
