Which Dropshipper Suits Your Online Business?

If you are interested in making money online with eBay of Amazon, you need a dropshipper that suits your online business.

Are you planning to sell on eBay or Amazon?

Then you may need to consider dropshipping services. However, there are two kinds of dropshippers and so it is important that you know the difference before you engage them.

First off, Dropshippers are the companies or businesses that stock merchandise which they sell to you the reseller — but will only ship an item directly to your customer after you pay for it on receiving payment from a customer.

You pay a fee to join the dropshipper. So which kind of dropshipper will suit you?

Aggregators: The Aggregators are also as Dropship Warehouse Companies. They are more or less typical middlemen.

On their websites, they will advertise millions of brand name products. They advertise heavily on the web claiming to have millions of brand name products you can sell online.

They will also offer ‘free’ websites loaded with their products that are indeed seated in a factory warehouse miles or even oceans away.

In otherwords, the products listed are in a virtual warehouse as the aggregators don’t have any real products in stock.

Their arrangement is sort of scam smitten as most of the merchandise they have is offered on Ebay or Amazon at the same prices!

So why the business on their part? Economics is at play here; they capitalize on the ignorance of the consumers.

Therefore, true, you may make a meager positive Return on Investment with them but this will be so for as long as your customers stick around.

On the whole, these companies raise money through the membership fees they charge and the handling fees you pay to have a sold item shipped.

An assured way of getting a positive ROI is by contacting the Dropshipping manufacturers who are considered below.

Dropshipping Manufactures – Many manufacturers are also dropshippers. Some will do the shipping or they will use a master distributor to do it for them.

The advantage of dealing with these is that you are offered merchandise the lowest prices without a typical dropshipper’s extra charges.

Here, you will be assured of a positive ROI from your eBay sales. The manufacturer also benefits to the extent of sales exposure of their products.

However, there are drawbacks to using drop shipping manufacturers. Some manufacturers just won’t entertain drop shipping.

Therefore, you either assign personnel to process and ship individual orders, which means a higher cost than would be incurred if you used aggregators.

So if you interested in ways of making money online via or not via eBay, then consider the kind of dropshipper you deal with.


Street Talk

I thought about doing drop shipping a few years ago on ebay. I became concerned when I read reviews about some that failed to produce and people's scores on ebay dropped dramatically. Instead, I bought a children's clothes lot. I removed some for personal use and sold some, but got stuck with the rest, which I gave away as presents.
