    Is dropshipping still working? Do you have a good chinese wholesale website to share where to buy good items?

    Dropshipping still "works", but the problem is finding a reliable source and this leaves you at the hands of the dropshipper. However, due to fees from Ebay and PayPal it might give a very small profit margin if any.

    Dropshipping from china? Eeeewwww... that would take ages until your customer gets the desired product. The key point is to order the product from your dropshipper once your customer orders the product from your store. How long would a product from china take to get to its destination? And what about unsatisfied customers who will sent the product back to your home address? You would have to ship it back to china! Will it ever get there? Who knows?

    Some wholesale companies offer drop shipping. What kind of products are you looking to sell? Forget about drop shipping from China, it takes at least 20 days to get a package from there. I would recommend buying from a wholesaler and just reselling. If anyone knows of a drop shipper i would be interested too!!! I did a google search once and found out a lot of drop shippers i looked at charged a fee to join. For me to pay a fee up front is a big no no.

    or just use dx.com. They have bases in the UK now, probably US as well, so people get faster delivery.

    Dropshipping still works but going through a Chinese website to dropship for you is not recommended.

    I recommend contacting suppliers in your niche to see if they dropship. Many will and some won't

    Buying in bulk and selling is not dropshipping I guess...

    Hi, It is very difficult to find a reliable dropshipper, especially from China. I have had some success using a supplier called Everbuying. I tested them by having a watch dropshipped to my son, and it worked well. Since then I've used them for several other orders. The main problem is trying to communicate with them. Good Luck!
