me too please, I am confused by the term? When I order things for work sometimes they are described as being dropshipped, which was explained to me as when the person I pay then has to order it to be shipped by someone else, it is like the person I am buying from is the middleman and the shipper is the distributor. Is that what you mean?

Quote:
Drop shipping is a supply chain management technique in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock, but instead transfers customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer. As in all retail businesses, the retailers make their profit on the difference between the wholesale and retail price.

Only posted a link to the definition not sure why it wouldn't let me post this link without having to change it.

Worldwide Brands is considered the best. Then there is doba. I have never done it myself, so I have no first hand knowledge if it works.

I'm not a fan of dropshipping on the internet. I've found most dropshippers provide horrible customer service if they even respond to you at all.

Really do your research if you plan on being a dropshipper. Make sure the product you're going to sell is authentic and find out where it's coming from.

And don't grossly jack up the prices. Profit is good but if customers find out they could have gotten the item a lot cheaper, they will not be happy and you won't get repeat customers.
