Hi , I am a novice at this and have only registered a few days ago.My email is constantly being inundated with all things Ebay and dropshipping. Only a few hours ago I received an email from dropshipping wholesalers.com and what was fascinating was their platinum package where they help you set up your own website . 'By having a website, you have the opportunity to increase your profits of selling products online by 150%. It's been proven that people that only sell products online through auctions such as eBay, yahoo, etc. are missing on the opportunity to have those customers that bought their products make repeat purchases from their website. A website also gives you the opportunity to not only make more money, but give you a professional appeal of yourself or business.'
Is this a good venture to delve in or not?Does Salehoo help with setting up with websites?

Thank you and I await for an honest feedback. Regards sfer

Hi sfer25,

Welcome to SaleHoo. It's great to have you on board. While we do not currently offer any website system of our own, we do provide some basic information on setting up an ecommerce store/website in our blog and resource section. I have not personally used Dropshippingwholesalers.com, but I'd say before you spend $167 for their platinum plan, maybe you should check these out first:

Hi sfer25,

Please have a look at the following reviews on dropshippingwholesalers.com so that you can make an educated decision on whether you should join or not.

If you are still starting out your online business, it is better to test the waters first before making a big investment. You can find free or low-cost websolutions that you can try out (please see links provided by Satya above). You can also start by selling stuff from your home that you no longer need on auction sites like eBay, Bonanzle, Atomic Mall, etc (this is also a good way of finding a good niche market) afterwhich you can slowly move to buying wholesale lots and then liquidated goods and once you have established your business online, you can look at offering a wider range of products to your customers by getting some products dropshipped.

I know how attractive dropshipping is specially to those who are new to online selling. I don't discourage using dropshipping as I believe it can greatly help your business but you can take advantage of it more if you educate yourself first. It is a great way of offering a great range of products to your customers without having a large start up capital and a warehouse to stock your products. This eliminates the risk of buying products that won't sell and losing money because of that. This is just one of the advantages of dropshipping and of course, it also has its disadvantages which include
a profit margin which is not as high as when you're buying wholesale. You will also have to pay your dropshipper a small fee to cover for their time and effort packaging and shipping the items for you.

I'd recommend clicking on the 'Education' tab in the Salehoo website and checking out our articles that provide you a wealth of information about dropshipping, how to make it work for you as well as some excellent ways of sourcing your products, protecting yourself from getting scammed, etc.

Cheers,

Thanks so much for the links. Glad I was not hasty to throw my money away. I am constantly researching and believe me I am not going to delve into all this vast Ebay experience hastily.

Again thank you

You're welcome! I'm glad I was able to help. Note though that those reviews were written about a year ago. If you wish, you may contact them by sending them a PM through the Salehoo forum. They are a senior member with forum ID: DropShipWholesalers. You may also send an email to Link hidden: Login to view.

I wish you all the best! :)

Hi, I've just come across this website, and was wondering if anyone could tell me if they deal with them? What they are offering sounds great but I don't want to sign up without finding out more. They are offering a turn-key web shop for the price of $167 plus lots more information on apparently good dropshippers.

Thanks :)
