    So I've actually done my research, and looked around this forum (dropshipping), but couldn't find a newbie's guide.

    I'm a complete newbie. I don't know the terminology, the methods, the results, etc.

    Can anyone provide a brief (or hell, if you feel like it, an extensive) guide for the newbie?

    What is dropshipping? I saw a few sites posted on these forums that had some extremely cheap goodies. Beyond that, I have no idea.

    How do you use dropshipping to make money? The more step-by-step you can make the answer to this question, the better :)

    No one is going to spoon feed you and give you a step-by-step guide.

    Gonna have to search and read and dig through the stuff like all of us

    OK, if you already made some research here and online then you have no need to be introduced to the concept and basics.
    what you need to know is that you can sell almost any goods online as longas you have a provider willing to ship in your name from their own warehouse ;)

    you pay the provider after the costumer has paid you so no inventory is needed. it has some weak sides but it works very well for many. I am on the Pharma dropship business but that kind of products are not allowed on eGay so I use blogs to promote my pills.. lol

    what else can I say? I guess you have to READ a lot so you can fully understand this side of the industry.

    wish you all success!

    Mark,

    As short as your reply was, I found it quite helpful. Thanks a lot!

    Do you know how I might get a provider to ship in my name?

    And from what I understand, ebay is the most used service to sell my "goods" (although you did mention you use blogs. Are there any other places where I can sell these products?

    Thanks again for the great information!

    here's a complete guide about an ebay dropshipping method, maybe it is outdated now but you can see an example how it could work in practice:
