    If buyers are paying for shipping, why wouldn't you include tracking? Eb@y and PP hate shipments without tracking.

    DHL will have tracking, of course. Single units with regular postal service will not.

    If you want people to buy from you, you're gonna have to provide tracking numbers when dropshipping. PP and Amazon hold payments forever without tracking. Only way to get sooner is if the end buyer leaves feedback, and chances of that aren't good.

    That is the reason why I prefer bulk. Drop shipping is a pain in the butt for me as well as expensive for the buyer.

    Adding a tracking service will cost addtl. money and it does not always shows. If you done deals with international shipments you should know that.

    But if the demand is high enough I may consider shipping bulk to the US or UK. No other Country.

    In that case you simply add the national ship cost to the drop ship rate. This way it will get to your buyer within a few days and you have working tracking.

    BUT only if demand is there.

    I would be interested in dropshipping :)

    however, not adding a tracking number to a shipment (from china?) and selling on ebay is a no-go.
    I will tell you what will happen: You sell it on eBay, you say it will arrive in 2 weeks and you give no tracking number. After about 16 days, the buyer will send you a message he did not receive the item (actually he received it, but you cannot prove this) and wants a refund. Now if you give a refund, that means he got the item and the money, you gave him the item for free and lost your money.
    If you do NOT refund him he will file a complaint with paypal. They will ask you for proof. The only proof is a tracking number, you do not have one, so they will refund him. So again he has the item and the money, you have nothing. And in the end you might also get negative feedback from him for item not received and refusing to refund ....

    I know that :)

    The problem is always the same in cases like this.
    It must be cheap in order for you to turn an even small profit.

    But it must be also fast and with tracking and that's were cheap ends.

    We always have various issues here.

    Some people want the drop shipping coz they do not have any money to buy small bulk.

    Some need drop shipping - like in your case - coz they are not in the US but sell to US.


    It's possible to cater to everybody needs but only if the demand is there. No sense in shipping bulk to US or UK if the stuff sits around for eternities.

    Yes that's right :)

    I know this is a big problem, it needs to be cheap and need to be delivered fast and with tracking.
    However, it is not necessary all the time to deliver it fast. E.g. I am selling an item on eBay, shipped worldwide for free which takes up to 3 weeks to arrive but nobody complained about that .... however, it is trackable ...

    And it is true, I only can do dropshipping because I am not in the US ....
    Now for the juice, this is only 10 m, so can it be really so expensive to send a 10ml bottle with tracking? :)

    Also about demand, well, these are top sellers on ebay. So if you import them in bulk and sell them here, I do not think you cannot get rid of them. Only problem is, I cannot list too many of them too fast, because they are against ebay's tobacco policy ....
    Once I sold an ecig kit on ebay and bids and views went up fast, but next day it was removed ....

    As far as I know - but not sure about it - the juice is okay as long as it's nic free to be sold on ebay. US and UK - or Germany - may have different rules about it, though.

    But it does not have to be ebay all the time either :)

    No, the ship cost for a 10ml bottle is fairly cheap - but adding tracking to it costs 2 bucks and will not show up till it hits the US. Some Countries are not supported at all and not everyone sells to the US as well.

    So yes, there are quite a few problems with all of it.

    Nice thing about it is that you - if your account has the needed high limits - you can make all sorts of listings with it. Just a battery, a set of 3 or 5 atomizers / vaporizers and what not. With no juice or 2 bottles of juice or sets of 5 bottles of juice.

    And I listed here only 2 different starter kits. There are more available, of course, to similar prices. With LCD screen, fat suckers that run of high capacity batt's, stainless steel ones - even pipes.

    I do not mind shipping bulk to the US or the UK . I do biz with people in both Countries and they could do the shipping for sellers there but it does add to the basic price.

    Give it a few days here and we'll see what happens. If there are enough responses of interested parties I'll see if it's worth it to stock a few hundreds in the US or UK and do the shipping from there.

    My experience with the OP. I would avoid this because your going to have headaches. He ships from overseas to California then somebody from california ship it to you..

    basically he is probably ordering it from DHgate or those other china websites then ships it to you playing the midelman

    I ask for certain items and he sends me other items I didnt want, different juices different flavors and e-juice nicotine levels

    He tells me it arrive din California Friday, i asked him today did it ship out yet and he says i was waiting on your response...?? Waiting for what, just ship the stuff

    And then he ships stuff I didnt ask for not even shipping what i ordered. I told him to cancel the order i will go through the other e-cig seller here

    I would avoid this seller, you probably wont get what you asked for and he is playing middle man
