    I need your advice guys. I have been thinking about starting a little drop shipping business for spy gear as there is a high demand in my line of work. I have been trawling the web and I came across Ankaka I noticed they have a wide variety of devices at prices where I can make a profit. Has anybody done business with them? Can you advise me on whether they are reliable enough to start my drop shipping business? Thanks in advance guys.

    Hello there and Happy New Year. I have been subscribed to their mailing since 2013. I had also ordered a thing or two. The only issue I had with them was that they didnt accept paypal payments so that shied me off. In my opinion they are worth a try. Cheers

    I have used them on and off for years for drop shipping specifically...my advice is find some bigger and better factories in china if you are looking for cheap china products to make a healthy profit.

    anakak is okay because they have been around a while but they are not a real supplier they are a middle man supplier they get their stuff from the shenzhen factories mark it up a few bucks and them resell them to USA guys or online sellers like you. it is not a bad thing because they offer some good prices but their shipping takes forever and many times they will ship your customer a defective product or send them a totally wrong product altogether.

    my advice is yes use them for small sales so on, but if you are going to scale it up get ready for some heavy customer service issues. My suggestion is use chinavasion and or light in the box, you can pay with paypal and credit card and they are a real deal supplier.

    here is a little trick for you ecomerce guys that i sued for years and not a lot of ppl use this method.

    make sure when people order they use the paypal portal so all of your funds are accepted into your pp account.
    the once you have a verified account signup for the paypal debit card, once receieved make sure you have the 1% discount turned on in your account, goog this so you know how t do it.

    once you have your card activated and the 1% monthly cash back turned on you can now use your debit card to make the dropship purchases right through your card and get 1% cash back into your account every month. this will usually cover any and all selling fees if your a big fish in the game.

    I would use this exclusively and get a healthy 2,000 back every month from paypal on all of my card purchases and this was all using money from the customers that were paying for there products....and yes i was making 200k in purchases in case your wondering I was heavy in the surveillance products back in the day and made a nice living before i got into 100% IM which i love much more...good luck...

    i suggest signing up the the WWbrands site so you have a complete list of dropshippers.
    i used to help guys online years ago get started in the dropship game but my 2cents is chinavasion. they are good and reliable

    i double checked. your information is incorrect:
    1. Chiavasion and lightintebox are not spy gear suppliers. cv are big player on 3C. lithtintbox are just like small version of amazon.

    2. all of droppshipping providers are not real factory. No factory can provide hundreds of items. Factory can only produce serveal items.

    looks like someone signed up with one post just to plug ankaka, let me guess a Chinese ip address to boot? yep.
    actually your right CV has lots of spygadgets but they don't have as many as they used to carry. ankaka is not the no 1 supplier.
    Alibaba and aliexprss you will find several huge factories that supply direct all of the products they get from in Shenzhen...either way you can use them I'm just providing some alternatives to the OP...if your goal dancing is to promote a website this isn't the place to do it..

    I just checked again. CV has no spy gadgets at all. And I checked alibaba and aliexpress. There some spy listing on alibaba and aliexpress now. But when i asked the online support:They both have a policy again spy gadgets,which are not eligle to selll on china.

    DigitalCity, your information are out-of-date and incorrect. But I learned some new big sites from you, thanks anyway.
