I purchase a website (swarmuniversal.com) from dropshippingwholesalers.com for my wife marriage anniversary. She do not like the image quality and most of promises on their website never came through. It was not a free domain and the items the promise were false. What are some advises I can get?

Not as yet since its only three weeks old. Because of the image quality, I was told it do not look ligit and with that customers might be scared to purchase. They promise thousands of items but when I get there after spending $167.00 they have nothing really. They said to choose one website for my site out of just a few. Dropshipdesign is one the recommend but for me to access their products I have to join dropshipdesign data feed plan which is $149.00. I think I was scammed because no one replied to my mail (Link hidden: Login to view) in the last two weeks. I need help, what do u think about the image quality?

Dropshippingwholesalers is a TOTAL SCAM. That site is listed on just about every Scam Alert site on the web.. It's listed very heavily on the 'Rip-off Report' and on 'Scam-Review' and Watch-Dog and also the owner is NicK Defanstano, who is listed as the biggest scam operator on the web today by most all of the scam watch sites....

I've said this a thousand times guys, alway check out the scam alert sites BEFORE you spend your money. At the very least just do a quick google search and if there is something wrong about the site it will normally show up...Just typing in 'dropshippingwholesalers.com into the search box on google shows 4 scam alerts on the first page.... :shock:

It was until I see the site they put together that I realized I was caught. My 30 days money back is not yet expired, do anyone think I can get my money back? After sending Nick (Link hidden: Login to view) several emails to discontinue or update my images, today he emailed a link for theprofitmonster.com. Nick did not mention anything about the emails I send him. Have anyone tried theprofitmonster?

Thank you very much chinawholesaler and all those that contributed to this post. It was a lesson well paid for. Since I joined salehoo in 2006 I should have been working very hard and have an up and running business by now. It was my mistake to be distracted into so many things including the 9-5 job. Here I am in the forum and I shall never leave again. Thank you guys very much, I've learned a lot.

wOW! i ALMOST PURCHASED FROM DROPSHIPPINGWHOLESALERS.COM YESTERDA, RIGHT BEFORE I FOUND SALEHOO. sOMETHING JUST DIDNT SEEM RIGHT TO ME THOUGH. I DID A BACKGROUND CHECK WITH THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU AND IT SAID THE COMPANY WAS NO LONGER IN BUSINESS. (IT HAD ANOTHER ADDRESS LISTED SO I THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS ANOTHER COMPANY) PLUS ON THEIR WEBSITE THEY BASICALLY URGED YOU TO SIGN UP RIGHT THEN AND THERE OTHERWISE THE OFFER MAY NOT BE OFFERED WHEN YOU CAME BACK AT A LATER TIME. THAT JUST DIDNT SEEM RIGHT. USUALLY IF A DEAL IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE, A LEGIT COMPANY WILL TELL YOU WHEN. IT JUST DIDNT SIT RIGHT WITH ME AND IM GLAD I DIDNT PURCHASE WITH THEM. SORRY BOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU JUREG26

I think really any site like that mention is a bad idea. Point is drop shipping raises the price of the item and will end up being more than anything. Just look for a real wholesaler now on and stay away from drop shipping. AND do research be you buy.

Drop shipping is only gaining in popularity. The trick is being selective in the products you choose to drop ship, you don't want to drop ship incredibly popular items becuase you are never going to make money with them. However if you do research you can find items to be competitive with and make money with drop shipping. This is one of the issues we discuss in our 10 Day eCourse. Starting out with a wholesaler and needing to buy large quantities is not an option for many people.

Hello Everyone,

I am a newbee to Salehoo. First I would like to thank everyone for their wonderful information.
I want to respond to the question about dropshippingwholesalers.com. DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT buy the website. I made that costly mistake a couple of years ago. First, while they are pushing purchasing the website they fail to tell you that after they create it, they provide little to no support afterwards. I was ignorant at the time and did not realize that you need to be certain that you understand that unless you are told specifically that they will publish it on the web for you, they don't. I did not understand that nor would they provide me with how to accomplish it. On their site they provide you with a name of a suggested hosting company but fell to tell you that they do not publish it. So if you WERE like me and do not understand how this works, you have a website just sitting there for no one to see but you.

Second, the templates for the website sucks. You get three choices that are lame/unattractive. I hired a company to make a logo for me and could not even place it on my website properly. Again I asked for help and they told me that I had to hire someone to help me with that, it was now my website and they did not get involved with anything other than the creation of it. I needed to change the appearance to make it look better
(fonts, colors, ect) same answer.

Third, every time I turned around my password that either they supplied or I choose was rarely working. i had to email them continusly because I couldn't access my site.

After much research these past couple of months I have found that there are MANY companies that you can have host, publish, and make a website with offering many options. The websites are made so that you have all of the control of the appearance, provide needed extras like sign in books for your visitors, social networking add ons, click n drag to add your inventory, search engine optimization, some offer monthly payment plans for a very low price with no contracts, and sooooo much more.

No, I have not committed any money to any of these companies yet because I am taking my time and carefully narrowing my choices down this time. I had started selling with ebay a few months ago to get my feet wet. Like many of you I found that ebay/paypal is a money hungry organization. I was considering opening store with them but thanks to my own experience and the insite from you guys on here, you helped me confirm my decision NOT to do it and to no longer deal with Paypal. Better to start off slow, gain all of the knowledge you can so as not to be sorry later.
