    When i read these type of threads (riddled with open doors and lots of fluff) i always wonder: "when is the next shoe going to drop?"

    In other words what service are you going to sell that justifies this lengthy fluff piece?

    Typical Hollander to question that, riddled with door and fluff :D Yeah Hagenezen know a lot about fluff haha but see how many views and the positive replies? It's helping out beginners and it helps me not to answer the same questions over and over.

    That hard to believe I wrote this to help out beginners?

    Reminds when I just joined and shared a nice freeware that helped out organizing, first reply I got was " must be your software" just because I wanted to help out. Guess suspicious people will always be there ;)

    I'am not planning to sell anything soon or in the future.

    It was "open doors" not doors, but that i beside the point

    It really has nothing to do where i come from, this is a WF tactic, write a long fluffy piece with barely no real info, nothing new here if you're doing dropshipping for more then a day,

    The reasons you mention why people fail are blatantly obvious but you never give any solutions besides stop you campaign and think of what you are done wrong (talking about kicking in a open door) But i guess we have to buy your eBook/eCourse/service for that.

    I have seen this tactic many, many, many times so i know when it smells fishy like this thread does, it often is fishy, this is a step up to a service or a crappy ebook , but before you can start selling you want to establish yourself as some kind of authority with the n00bs, we call it here the Franklin Hatchett method

    So.... question remains: when is the next shoe gonna drop?

    I even said a couple times things are obvious, obvious to me maybe to you and yet still so many people make those mistakes because, well, they are newbies, a lot of them don't look at things yet as we do so I wrote things so they wont make those mistakes or at least look different at things. Beginner stuff for beginners and again, no shoe, no intention of selling anything.

    You kinda paranoid though haha it's only a tactic if it's a tactic and the people that know me know I did this with no other intentions than to help out but I guess I understand where you coming from.

    Got nothing against ado, just joking around, 010 and 070 are usually on good terms :D

    @thecobbler Yeah man, why do you need invoice from supplier? You know how many invoices a dropshipper would have to get from supplier if he sells to retail customers? :eek:
    A payment processor who doesn't like free shipping store, unbelievable. I think dropshippers should avoid them like plague.

    Maybe just for their documentation. I just asked my supplier the invoice and submit to 2checkout. Then they approved my application.

    Your welcome.

    This is of course just some beginner things, to make it successful everybody need to find their own way of promoting.

    Hmm.. I am not trying to defend Billy here. But I think a simple method like this after some twist can become rather interesting. I am in the process of setting up an ecommerce platform (still in the inital stage) where the concept of dropshipping get twisted and modified for local market. What I am planning to do is to tie up with local retailers and dropship their products at a slight higher margin with same day delivery. So if a client lives in cities x, we will dropship from the retailers that participated in that area. This basically means that customers who order from us will get their order within 2-4 hours. I think being nimble in terms of logistic will help alot in competing with the big boys. This modification of method was inspired by this thread. So I think credit is due to Billy for his time and effort taken to write this thread. Don't you think so?

    My tip, make sure to be ready to have time to make the orders and make a register of your accounting so you wont lose money without noticing

    There is really nothing in that post that hasn't been posted at least 20x, there is no method on how to set things up, no real advice on advertising... It is a pre sales page, a fluff piece to warm people up for his next product/service, and it works... Look at all these n00bs flocking to this thread praising it as they have no clue that this have been posted many times, there are much, much, much better posts to find then this one, you know with real info and not full Here is one as comparison, see the difference here in content fluff against substance?

    Just saying.... :)

    That you didn't like it or have paranoid thoughts about it and tell that here I have no problem with that but now you are just turning into a whiny kid. This is not a spoon-feed topic how to set everything up, this is a post about what you need to pay attention to before starting, it's not a warm-up for anything I'm going to sell, it's a post for absolute beginners to help out, different from the one you posted but go ahead post 20 of the same posts like me.

    You also disrespecting the people who found this useful.

    But I don't have time dealing with kids like you, showed you respect in the beginning and primarily because you are from my country now you are just another statistic on my ignore list.

    Thanks, I'm glad you find it useful.

    Thanks and you're welcome.
    Of course I know this one :) but I didn't mention it as it's more expensive most of the times than AE.
    Whatchu talkin about? I'm a made man! You get your shine box!!

    I am not paranoid at all, i am just giving my opinion about your fluff piece, also i am not dissing anyone at all, these n00bs don't know any better so they see this fluff piece and believe this is solid info, now i have given them a good alternative where they can really learn somthing instead of just feeling existed and still don't know where to go next.

    I have said what i have said and people can now make up their own minds (n00bs are people too you know :) ) so i am out of this thread.

    Have a nice day.
