    Dropshipping isn't a company, dropshipping is a method, which means you are the middleman but don't think for a moment it is easy ;)

    AE, Amazon, Ebay, you can dropship from anything but it won't work for everything ;)

    That's why you have debit cc or vcc.
    Dropshipping isn't really that hard to understand.
    Let's say I dropship from AE so I pick a niche and set up a website with for example shopify, then I take the plug-in Oberlo and I import items from AE and give it my own price.

    So if there is an item in AE that costs $20,- then on my website I will sell it for $30,-.

    Now I will only buy that item if I get a paid order.

    But as I said it sounds easy but in reality it's not otherwise everyone would do it, it's hard work to succeed.

    Is a website a must have with dropshipping?
    Or is there also a way dropshipping without a webstore?

    I understand now. and you are right, it does sound straightforward. Do you dropship? or have experience in dropshipping?

    Not perse, people are also dropshipping through eBay but the competition is very hard, you will have to battle eBay veterans and Chinese that speak good English who are also selling on Ebay for really low prices.

    I don't do dropshipping currently, I do sometimes import stuff from 1688 and then resell it but I speak many guys that do dropshipping.

    The reason I don't dropship is that you got a chance that Paypal will freeze your funds for 21 days (sometimes shorter)the first 60 days so you either need to have a buffer saved up or you need a creditcard so you can front the money and I don't have those funds currently so I have choosen a other path.

    Also you need to invest time and money to advertise your products as you understand you won't get customers by doing nothing.

    it looks like alibaba, is it alibaba or something different? and if you dont mind me asking, how long have you been doing this and how long would you say it takes for someone to understand the foundations of IM strongly enough to not work for a corporation at 11$/ hour

    It's the Chinese alibaba but you can only order there through a Chinese agent as they don't send outside China.

    There is no time to say how long it will take to understand the foundation of IM as IM is a big term which covers many forms and methods, it's an ever changing world where you never stop learning. Some learn fast, some slow, some will succeed and more will fail so I can not really tell you a time. Compared to many people on this board I am also a newbie, some have been doing this for yearsss, Although I have a offline marketing background, freelance in web design and have beyond average life XP I've been focusing on IM since last year November.

    I got ADD and things that interest me I learn very fast, I'm innovative and creative but always have tons of ideas at the same time and only recently have been starting things up but I don't see myself making any profits soon. I got tons of Udemy and Lynda courses about SEO, marketing tools and the IM methods that I watch every day, learn from and making notes, everyday I am on BHW to read people that fail, that succeed and learn from them and where I can help others.

    The only cliche advice I can give you, don't start too fast because you read other peoples success stories and don't wait too long for taking action, expect to fail and don't get discouraged when you do because you will fail a couple times along the way. Are there people that didn't fail once and made it big, sure but that's only a very very small group.

    You can probably do it using only social media but customers will trust you far more if you have a website

    How do you do this only in social media, lets say facebook? Sorry if this is a beginner question. Where do people make the order, payment, etc. without a website (or ebay)?

    You don't. You can't link the AE link because they will see the real price, you need eBay which is not smart because chances are they will find the same item cheaper, you need a niche website to succeed in dropshipping. Unless you got a real good rating on eBay or have a really unique item your own site is the way to go which you then advertise your site on all social media.
