    For those of you that prefer drop shipping, do you really feel the extra % made is worth the stress and aggravation dealing with customers vs affiliate marketing and a lower % earning per conversion?


    I am an affiliate for a store that also offers a drop shipping program and wondering if the extra % is worth the extra effort?

    I used to do dropshipping. Money was alright, but it wasn't worth the hassle of dealing with customers. If you get a complaint it's hard to properly deal with it. If you have a great source and more control, then dropshipping can be a really good field.

    Since I've moved onto affiliate marketing, I have less stress.

    Affiliate marketing is always gonna be less strees for you. You dont have to worry about maintaning the customers or product, you just have to worry about selling it. Go with affiliate marketing for the quick easy bucks :)

    Dropshipping requires so much work.. Affiliate is a little easier. But I suggest you make your own product like ebooks or anything your good at and promote it online. Thats what i did and it works like a charm. :)

    I couldn't agree more. As an affiliate you give them a customer and cash in. That's it. The rest is non of your business.

    The net 60 for most affiliates is a deal breaker though

    Affiliate marketing is better then dropshipping, are you people high?

    First the % that you get suck ass, second the time you have to wait for your money sucks even more ass, thirdly aff program,s shave sales as a mofo... Dropshipping is not a bigger hassle then affiliate marketing, I haven't been drop shipping for very long (like september) but i will NEVER go back to affiliate marketing again, the money is 1000% better and if you don't want to handle support just outsource it

    Still if the customer does a claim and he won the network takes back your commission. And you never can know if there was a claim or they shave or not etc.
