    • get money from the seller before you ship the item.
    • Ask what name or address has to be written in the parcel ( I mean the From address name) This will help the seller make his customer believe that he sent the parcel.
    • Ask if you have insert any personal message or flyer inside the parcel

    thanks scarer! I was doing some research, a lot of people are saying that there is too much competition, & that its not worth trying. What do you think? have you made money doing this before?

    Really it depends on the niche and products, it is just one more way to monetize keywords. It does tend to be a bit more difficult because instead of sending them to the actual seller you are handling part of the process your self.

    There are still some but limited opps with dropshipping, the bottom line is most of the suppliers have went on to ebay etc themselves so you are competing with the people selling to you?

    If you can find a product you still have to get good ranking be it on ebay amazon or a niche site.

    There is no easy way and very few products with good income left, I find that a dropship which pays $5 can be as hard to get as an affiliate product that pays $30.

    However it all comes down to customers/traffic.

    Good luck.
