    I have checked many websites because I want to start a business either home decor, video games & accessories, Car Parts, Jewelry, or Fragrances which I know a lot about. I have knowledgel in these areas but it seems that every dropshipper I run into only carry retail prices. So whats the point of dropshipping then? It is fustrated, Ebay is a hard business to begin and become successful in because of the huge competition in every market. Right know I want to become successful in it so I can have another stream of money to help me pay for Law school. I want to take a successful career as a Lawyer and a Business engineer. But this costs a lot of money in which atm I don't have. I actually want an education lol. So I am coming here to check and see if their is anyone here that dropships with actual wholesale prices. I may not find anyone but at least I tried.

    If you do Video games & accessories, Home decor, Car parts, Jewelry, or Fragrances that would be great. Anything that sells and I can profit with is all im looking for. I know right now I sound like someone looking for a free method or so but really I wouldn't be asking if it wasn't important. Kind of at my last straw here. And BHW has always been the place to turn to when I need help or someone to talk to about anything. Spend 8 years in IM and made nothing. So since I like selling, I hope this is for me.

    Please PM me or add me on skype: dechartist

    "Anyone who's their for me I will be their for them" Thats a saying I believe in.

    Then don't drop ship.

    Instead find customers that have their credit card at hand and are ready make a purchase and give them your link and earn a commission as an affiliate.

    But here's the thing I am hearing many people that has so much success with just that. I don't mind buying wholesale its just, I dont want to lose money in the process.

    I did drop shipping for a while. I made some money but not enough to stay interested. The only drop shippers that are making good money on eBay are the ones that are listing and selling thousands of items. To deal with that sort of volume and customer base it's a full time job and you will probably need staff.

    Im a successful dropshiper but the only way to succeed is to sell in volume as Duffers5000 said. Currently im selling on Amazon and im offering 10k producs, when you start the bussiness going you dont have to do anything... It takes me 10-20 min. a day to sort everything out and I make about 30-50 bucks.

    dropshipping market is extremely competitive. The price you may offer, will be offered by 100 ebay seller.
    Plus amazon is there with their prime with even cheaper price...
    only way to stay in this business is will very profitable niche.

    Dropshipping is shit. Why would you do dropshipping when you can buy your own items and get more profit. Or even just do affiliate.

    Why don't you make a site that focuses on one of those niches, and act as an affiliate marketer? Hell, I'll set you up a made for amazon site - I'll host, buy the domain, run the site, do backlinking/Web 2.0's & optimization - you write the content, product descriptions, and articles. We'll split commissions and profit (make sure you have a paypal). There are definitely some niches we can drill down to in Home decor, Car parts, Jewelry, or Fragrances. What do you think?

    Aside from the last 2 unhelpful comments, EDIT: nevermind this, I didn't post in time.

    The veterans are correct my friend (Moneymo2018) dropshipping makes no sense in an era of affiliates, or buying your own products at rare bargains.

    Ok what is this dropshipping stuff isn't that where you sell someone else's product and when someone buys it they give you a percentage of the sale? If so how is it not worth it?
