Not all sites permit/allow dropshipping and some do. If a site doesn't permit dropshipping, then I have no problem as it's their policy and they have the right to make up whatever policy they want. I recently found a site I thought I could use for my dropshipping on ebay. I only made 2 orders with that company and the first order was successfully delivered to the customer. The 2nd order, however, was sent to the wrong address. It was sent to the address of the first order I made, so that customer received another item. I contacted the customer on how to return the item back to the shipper, but apparently he had called the company to tell them that I was dropshipping. The company told me that and said that they do not allow dropshipping so they temporarily banned me from buying or making any orders there. I only made 2 and they didn't even give me a warning. It's not a big issue to me as it was just a new site I was trying out to see if I could add it to my list of dropshipping suppliers. I was just surprised about two things: 1) the customer seemed to treat dropshipping as if it's a bad thing. Why? He bought a product off me which he saw and liked on ebay at a price he was willing to pay (which is why he bought it). But so what if he finds out that I got the item for cheaper and he paid my marked up price? How's that any different from customers going to Target or some store and buying something there. Don't they know that any retailer they shop at are getting the items for cheaper than they are paying? It's as if though it's WRONG that the sellers gets items for cheaper price than the customer paid for. That's like 99% of all retail! That's how it works? 2) I asked the company, "so are you saying that I can't buy and send a gift to a friend? That would be dropshipping since it's being shipped out to a different address than my own. What if a company wants to giveaway prizes for a promotion and decides to order 50 different items and has it sent out to 50 different addresses? Is that considered dropshipping? Basically, I told them that it's subjective as there is no way anyone can prove someone is dropshipping just because they are buying stuff and having it sent out to different addresses. What if I just have a lot of friends? So I'm not sure why some people/companies view negatively on dropshipping? Once the item is paid for, what business is it where it's going? Retailers by cheap from wholesalers or manufacturers and have it delivered to them. Then they mark up the prices and sell it to customers. How is that any different? The bottomline is, as a customer, whatever it is you are buying, you are almost ALWAYS paying more than what the seller bought it for. We've all done it. Why though do people get alarmed or surprised if they find out it was dropshipped? I think they are just upset because they now know they could have just got it themselves for a cheaper price. But that's no different in everything. Whatever you buy, there's probably another retailer/seller who always sells it for cheaper, but you can't find all the cheapest deals. You shop to the best that you can and buy from the best option you found. Afterwards, if you find out it was cheaper somewhere else, you can't be mad at the seller and accuse them scamming you.
