Working with Drop shippers for auctions and online selling
Copyright 2006 llbglobal Before I say anything about drop shippers I should warn you that there is a whole world of drop shipping scams out there. By scams I mean that they will certainly drop ship for you but not without a hefty cost. I have seen lots of companies that have huge markups on their products. Which cuts the profit margin to zero for you. Again it’s just as important to call these types of companies and ask questions. In my experience, a good drop shipper will only charge you a couple bucks to process your orders without any other additional charges.
I think it’s a fair deal for a company to make a few dollars on each deal since they are the ones who will maintain your inventory for you and provide the manpower it takes to process your orders and ship them. If you want to avoid being scammed by dropshipping companies then grab a free copy of the Auction Report and read about some of the latest scams to look out for. These days it’s important to make sure you know who you are dealing with. The other problem I have found with dropshippers is that there are a whole mess of them that only offer no name brand products. These types of products will not bring in the same kinds of profits that a normal name brand item will.
One other scam I see going on is the dropshipping companies that offer to build you your own website already preloaded with thousands of products. They will charge you a monthly fee for the service but the problem is that nobody will actually visit these types of sites. I like to call them “cookie cutter sites” because they are all the same. Each person who falls victim to these services will only be stuck with a monthly charge and no real business.

Lastly I want to say that even though I have outlined some of the pitfalls of dropshipping, that doesn’t mean that you cannot be successful using these services. As long as you are careful about who you deal with then you shouldn’t have any problems working within this type of business model. If you stay smart you can become a great online seller!.
