    I read Ebay Stealth 3.0 and it was mentioned there so I'm pretty sure they're legit even tough I never done business with them

    they are legitish, but good luck finding a product with decent margins. would be hard to make money from them. Id recommend calling suppliers directly

    They are middlemen. Don't work for them, work for yourself.

    Yea doba is a rip off. You pay for a membership to sell items. But these items / products are higher than the competition, so making a profit isn't possible.

    You can buy stuff cheaper at Wal-Mart! No joke, I did an ebay guide on them about 5 years ago, don't waste your time. Research direct manufacturers or suppliers, as previous posts have mentioned, they are middlemen.

    Thank you all for the replies.

    I am very new to this dropshipping thing. As far as I know, the supplier won't ship (or dropship) the product. If that's true, then I'll handle all the shipping myself. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of dropshipping?

    Yes that's true 70-80% of them don't but there are a few who do.If you are trying to dropship a high end product they'll probably agree to dropship for you,but for $5-$15 items I don't think they would.If you have some start-up money and you think that the item will sell 100%,then buy stock.You will end up with lower shipping costs.

    Doba huh? I cant believe they are still around lol. As for dropshipping, you shouldnt see it as a one way business method. Be creative and think out of the box. Basically come out with ideas and create your own systems... Contact suppliers, contact shipping companies get ressources...

    and you might be able to do this:

    1. Have your own list of suppliers and products
    2. Have your own Shipping methods
    3. Be THE dropshipper

    About point #2, are you talking about shipping directly from supplier to buyer or shipping from supplier to me and then to the buyer?
