    Not sure if this is the right forum. if not, please move me.

    Ive been looking everywhere for a dropshipper for the category of products i want to sell on my site but haven't been able to find one. The alternative would be to stuff my site (non affiliate site - my legit business with branded products) with affiliate links but i don't think that will convert well and look good on the brand.

    The workaround that i was considering is:
    - to sign up for the affiliate programs for all the competitive brands i want to sell
    - host the full checkout on my site of all the brands
    - then go to each of the respective brand pages via an affiliate link and make the purchase with my company cc
    - enter the customers info in the shipping address - kind of a ghetto dropship setup

    The only factors that i can see are:
    1. switching ip's whenever i purchase on the affiliate site - i use a dsl connection so can i just reset every time?
    2. offering a different affiliate website when applying to the programs - thinking of creating a duplicate site on a different domain with all the affiliate links
    3. somehow fly by without the affiliate admins seeing all my transactions coming form the same cc - don't know how to get past this one

    Is there anything else i should be worried about or any other workarounds to consider? possibly a scalable workaround?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
