    Dropshipping Section doesn't seem fit for purpose anymore, it is no longer viable with all the brand new accounts looking for ebay sellers.
    Only Donor level should be allowed to post or they need to provide some form of verification to Admin that they are who they say they are and that they can provide what they offer.
    Too many noobs not carrying out their due diligence and losing their ebay accounts to these clowns.

    This. How is it that the JV section requires mod approval but dropshipping doesn't? It's effectively a JV where one person supplies the traffic and the other provides the goods.

    BHW - of course.

    It's a fair point whilst trying to remain open we're sometimes too open. As with any remote transactions where the buyer doesn't do their own DueDil bad things can happen.

    Lets bounce around ideas for a solution.


    We expect users on BHW to be mature adults and we treat them as such. You wouldn't hand your money over to any random guy on the street who promised to give you a wholesale discount just for him to run off. BHW is the same.

    Check out what the member you're working with has posted around the forum.
    Do they appear legit, are they just here to post on drop-shipping without contributing?
    Have you spoken to them on the phone?. Old school I know but surprisingly effective.
    They don't want to take a call? Then move onto the next guy.

    We started a business tier with Enterprise level that has been well received. We check out the sellers so you don't have to adding another tier of researched drop shipper would be a possible solution but any commercial engagement would always come down to the members discretion.

    BHW would you be more likely to buy from a BHW approved seller?
    What would you want to know before you worked with them?

    True JV and dropship are definitely 2 different beasts.

    JV - you invest your time, money and knowledge into building a long term business relationship or developing a product to release to market and then develop that product / business to the benefit of all parties related to the joint venture.

    Dropship is someone sending a product on your behalf.

    We think we're ahead of the curve on the Joint Venture sections - please tell me if we're not. Dropship - we know there is work to be done.
