Hi,
i just came across this site Link hidden: Login to view
Has anyone used this site? They are asking $100 for setup fee and $29 monthly charges. Are they legit? LEt me know. That would be a great help.


Thanks,

well, i have never seen a dropshipper that you can really make a profit, especially if your selling on ebay. i dunno, i just haven't had good experiences with them so it may be just me too.

They are a good service if you're looking for your own turnkey solution however it's best to focus on a particular category of products rather than everything when using them because they have thousands of members selling their products.

Well they seem to have a good BBB reputation. They also have a 7 day free trial. Sign up and see how thier prices really are and check thier shipping prices are.

From what i can tell you will have to do your own advertising for your store. So expect time and expense for that.

I did the 7 days trail. The prices are mid to high, cant make profit. And 7 days is not enough to do anything, not even to setup the store. You have to manage everything yourself, including advertising. You don't have the option of using your own dns.

Service can be good - and the products can look good, but beware, sometimes dropshippers send out used items/refurbished - I know first hand - :)

I'd order something to make sure the items are NEW.

You're missing the real value of Shopster. Don't use them to setup your drop shipping business - use them to test your ideas before you invest alot of time and money setting up your real site.

Use Shopster with a generic domain name (something like beststuff.com, greatdeals.com, etc.). Now when you have an idea of a new site, fill you Shopster store with those products. Sure, their not as cheap as you can get them elsewhere - who cares. All you want to do right now it test the market. Drive some traffic to your Shopster store and see if it converts. Play with pricing to see at what levels people will actually buy.

If you break even on a Shopster store, you know you can be very profitable with a full blown store - so then invest the time and money to set it up.

Rinse and repeat.
