I just took a quick look.

New site, but they say they are new. Having said that the site looks like it was put together in a couple of hours, and I couldn't find any contact details at all!

Maybe they were in that much of a hurry they simply forgot that page....who knows?

I'm just doing a quick drive by at the moment, but I'll be back later and take a good look at it when I have some time, but I have to say that first impressions are not great lol

OK, no sign of them being accredited with BBB, not that I actually expected they would be lol, but as per their claim on their site. As EZ has pointed out, dodgy payment options, although they also claim on the site to take credit cards lol.

No need to look any further, this one is a SHOCKER, stay well clear!

Thanks alot guys. That basically validated what I was thinking. I'm trying to find a reliable supplier of LCD Tv's/Monitors, Computer components, Mobile Phones, Video Surveillance and other Electronics.

I don't necessarily need drop shipping, however I'm looking for good pallet deals or refurbished electronics etc.

Will keep an eye out for some refurbs, we get some good deals offered to us on those every now and then : )

When I say us, I mean us as in my own business (not in my role here with SaleHoo)

: )

Fudjj, Ive been going back and forth in emails with your friend from 'Powersellers Union'. Its requiring an investment from me to some sample pricing as to what I can expect when dealing with him. You have any Idea how the pricing is there? Im looking to actually SEEEE a little something before I jump in for another $100 bones or whatever the membership fee. I have no problem registering and paying to order however, it's discourgaing to me to have to pay before I even know what Im getting know what I mean?

I seen you had recommended him in a previous post but I just wanted to know if it was going to be worth it.

To be honest I'm not exactly sure what they are charging for membership at the moment, but I can tell you it is a directory of drop shippers, they are not a drop shipper themselves.

I've known Jason for a couple of years now, from our membership here, and I have seen him start this venture from scratch and build it right up. I can't speak to the quality of the suppliers or to the amount, as I never really explored the site in full, or looked to use any suppliers there as I don't drop ship myself.

I can tell you that Jason has put a hell of a lot of work into developing his list, and I believe for the most part that the list is not a duplicate that you find on many sites. Jason has actually made a point of going out and sourcing his own suppliers.

I'm not being much help here, I know, and of course I can understand anyone simply not wanting to constantly throw money after money away on sourcing products.

I know Planes is a member, and he is into drop shipping. He can't be too far away from returning home, so I would actually buzz him, I'm sure he will be able to give you a much better independent impression of the site, and the value it offers from a drop shipping aspect than I can.

What I can tell you is, I consider Jason, the owner, to be the number 1 source of drop shipping information, not talking about suppliers, but in the whole process, and I would never hesitate to point anyone in his direction for advice on the topic.
