Simplx is a scam. I do not understand why SALEHOO has a paid ad for them on their homepage. SIMPLX charges you a fee and instead of getting Wholesaler information you receive a call from an agent trying to get you to pay between $3,500 and $11,000 to get access to their 'supposed' list of Wholesalers. IT IS A SCAM AN SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM SALEHOO'S SITE. :evil:

It's not a scam...it's a supply chain Mangerment Company..You are not getting a wholesale list....you're joining a company and becoming what they call a Rep... .I did some rearch on Simplx.......after I got the phone call from them asking me to send 3500.00 and going on and on about how Kmart would drop ship to my clients..I didn't understand it and thought what you did until I did my homework... There are a lot of companies like Simplx out there...

It's a little more detail then the regular drop ship companies.....Simplx and these other companies that I have done research on lately deal with Department stores like Kmart..QVC..Sears...Circuit City...Costco...Targets....Kohl's.....They set you up so you can view LIVE Inventory for these stores and end the out of stock problem with most drop shipping companies..and provide Live customer service for your customers...hence why the fees to join are so high..... I did my homework..now i understand how they work......It's not a scam..until you learn what it's about...

I looked into the company for several weeks. They actually have several levels of membership. I think the basic package is about 350.00 us dollars. You shop different stores and get a discount. They will in return dropship the products. An example would be the walmart website. You buy from there and you get an 8% return to your account. They also have different specials that other people wont be able to get. Its a weird process but you get paid for selling in bulk. The prices are close to retail so you will be selling large amounts of goods in order to get a profit.

See my other post...

They are alright but alot of what they sell is close to retail.. then they charge a dropshipping fee. They have limited pictures (if at all) and they deal with other companies. Also, they have a membership fee for $30+ a month or get a year membership for $280

They're kinda shady because you can only communicate with the suppliers through Doba only. They have a good customer support though you can email, call or chat with a live person and have a good variety of items to sell. So I don't completely talk smack about their company.

I stopped dealing with them over 2 or 3 months ago.. so maybe they got better but I doubt it.

Has anyone done business with them and actually made a decent profit because I'd really like to know. :?:

At the moment weve been working with doba for a month now and to be honest no proper income has been made.

Of all the bills we had to pay, to Paypal, to Ebay and to Doba..were not left with much. And am considering closing my account with them.

Ive also researched most of their items and found two things:

1. their items are sold at cheaper prices over the internet retail stores 0_0

2. Ebay is flooded with their products and no one seems to buy anything decent.

Weve got some losses but I cant blame doba for it..just blame myself for being so naive to think we cud make money when we have to pay so many people.

Be careful with this company as you have to pay an initial fee just to get the phone call that will try an lure you in for the $3,500.

They don't reveal too much information on their home page until they get your initial deposit they call it.

I joined simplex at the end of December and was told my first month was free (which was actually charged in the 1 time sign up fee), plus everytime I e-mailed them I received an error report on their address. I finally got my 60 minute training section with an e-bay power seller and he told me the e-mail problem was very odd and to send him the e-mail. I did, no response. I have sent around 10 e-mails, only to receive errorm, cannot send, and I have even called over 5 times at different times and the client services were not avalaible at this time and recording said to call back or leave your name and number. I sent a certified letter to have this dropped. I feel too it is a scam and beware everyone, do not use this service!!!
