    I've not used this dropshipper...no. However, check out the address, it looks like a residential home to me...this guy may well be a middle man.

    From my dropshipping experiences, there isn't a lot of money to be made and particulary not on dvds/cds/games as the big supermarkets are prepared to sell these as loss leaders.

    Establish a niche where you can sell for top dollar (not run of the mill stuff) and do your research on egay and amazon to see what the true retail price is.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: Also noticed a dropshipping account is free so what's to stop members of the puclic buying direct from this site?? It's not a wholesaler/supplier in my opinion.

    hey bro let me tell u my expeirence . I was dropshipping cell phones on egay for about 2 weeks I sold 5 phones for a grand total of 3205.00 and I pocketed 650.00 . I was buying the phones for alibaba , dhgate , tradetang. but paypal and egay are becoming VERY weery about china wholesalers . I found a couple of sites check out megagoods.com and i think it's gowholesale.com or wholesalego.com. Your best bet is to find a trustworthy website , particulary in the USA or UK . It is a membership site but whats 10 bucks a month if your making good money ? Your paypal account will become limited a couple of times trust me there's no way around it and it fucking sucks!!! Egay is very weery about electronics so pick your battle . Good Selling !!!!

    Take a look at some of the UK dropshipping forums that exist and take your time and read the posts....there are a few around but I used the one below when I was starting out...

    It really depends how safe/risky you want to play it. Personally, I think you need to know what you're doing if you go along the electronics route and importing from China is not without its problems.

    In my experience, if you're going to be dropshipping the products you've suggested, you're likely to make about £1 to £3 per transaction and therefore, need volume to make any decent money.

    Do your research and don't part with any money until you are satisfied. I will give you one word of advice and that is not to go with a company called The Select as I have heard so many complaints about them.

    Have you considered public domain works at all??

    PM me if you want any advice.

    EDIT: I should probably add that I have previously purchased dvds from the Channel Islands, as you don't pay VAT on them, and sold them on for a nice profit. However, you have to study the market and keep ontop of the latest hot products.
