I'm thinking of creating a website and also selling on eBay etc. The products will all be based around a certain subject and the idea is to sell products such as books, CDs, dvds, audiobooks, downloads... and whatever else comes along related to the certain subject.

I have next to zero capital to invest but have professional web design skills/resources.

Is dropshipping the best way to start?
Maybe I can resell downloadable products to begin with? (if I can find any) Then go to wholesalers when I can afford it...

I'm tired and should be in bed while writing this - just thinking out loud but if you have anything to say on the subject I'm sure it will help.

I'll come back later. Good night.

Well your best bet would be to find a way to make capitol to start with. There are not many dropshippers that will dropship for free. When you sign up an account with a dropshipper they have to prepare certain documents for themselves for the tax liabilities they have as a dropshipper. This is one reason they charge you a fee. Also they wont expect you to make many orders either because most of thier prices are too high.

Now in our list we have many dropshippers listed. But ill let you in on a little secret. About 80% of the suppliers listed in our directory are small businesses. And if you ask them they will dropship for you for free just to get your business. All it takes on your part is to just email them or call them up. You would be surprised what a supplier is willing to do just for the chance they can become a big supplier for a large powerseller

Thanks, Jimmy,

Good morning.

Also they wont expect you to make many orders either because most of thier prices are too high.


Could you clarify that please?

Interesting that most on the list are small operations. Thank you - that gives me hope :)
