    Depends on the items you will be shipping in my opinion. One of my distributors only uses UPS, so I can only use them for larger products. This is because UPS isn't very good when it comes to small items.
    Example:

    1. A computer I dropship that weighs around 25lbs ships for $21 in the U.S. Not too bad considering the price of the computer.
    2. A video game which weighs about 2 lbs ships for $14. Absolutely horrible and this will make it so your profit margins are non-existent.

    suggestions for what exactly? you asked a very broad question w/o specifying crucial elements
    the guy above already told you, that you need to be more specific about what do you wanna ship exactly

    what if i list 3 companies and i say these are the best: DHL, FedEx, UPS, does it really help you?

    i live in EU, so i can't say this for the US, but DPD has very competitive rates in EU for sure, i don't dropship, i just know that a lot of companies i order from are using DPD as their courier service, so they must have good rates, at least for companies with contract
    sometimes postal services have good rates too, at least if you take a look at the British eBay, a lot of sellers ship with Royal Mail

    Thanks for your suggestion, but don't make me feel like I didn't know what I was asking. I could have used google to search for names if I wanted that, but I asked here since I know I could get someone with experience on different services that could recommend (mains factors being price+time).
