    Can anyone point me in the direction of European dropshippers? There's so many scammers out there, was hoping someone here is doing some nice business with a trustable company.

    I don't know a lot of european dropshippers, I guess dropshipping isn't that much developped in europe.
    Though I've seen pixmania offering dropshipping on pixmania-pro.com, but only for professionals (means you can't deal with them as a person, you have to own a company).

    They are the european leader for online electronic product selling (digital cameras, mp3 players, hi fi stereos, dvd players, cell phones and so on).
    So if you are running a reselling business or willing to start one, they could be your perfect partner.

    Hope this helps ;)

    There are some good ones for adult toys in based in the UK, i have used them and the mark ups are good, but you need traffic to convert of course, google it

    This dropshipper looks quite good, however, as they have about 4000 items and I am completely new to the adult market, I am not sure which products can make a profit. I would sell on eBay.

    EDIT: Just checked some of their products, and compared with sold listings on eBay. Either I choose the wrong products or there is just generally no profit to be made. After adding shipping and eBay/paypal fees there remains no profit, I would sell at cost or for some products I would even run at a loss.

    Yep, there is no margin on ebay for these, do not try ebay unless you want to have a loss lead for future returning customers to your money site. Once you have a way of getting cheap traffic only then look at dropshipping. That is from my experience at least. Adult toys are good for margins but it all relies on the target traffic that you can get.If you cant get adult toy traffic do not dropship their products. I read its best to call companies that do not dropship (products over the $150 mark) and cut them a deal where you email them when you get an order.

    Here are some of my traffic ideas:

    1. I used to redirect customers from ebay to my dropshipping store using flash banner, but that was 7 years ago and not sure what ebay is like now. You could perhaps try gettings VCCs from fiverr to create many ebay accounts, list the product then redirect all traffic from ebay with a flash redirect. You must cloak the flash file else ebay staff (robots) will see it straight away.

    2. use vcc to create adwords accounts to get your inital free credit. issue here is getting new IP with a different hostname each time ( i am still testing this )

    3. Gorilla marketing on forums to your money site

    4. pay a hacker to get you access to a competitor who can crea 3% traffic from their domain as customer hit their stie from google search . A little naughty but i am just brain storming

    5. seo long tail keywords for your money site. Do seo yourself or pay $3.50 an hour (15 hours a week ) to indians who are normally really bad, but i have found one good one recently (got me to pos 7 in 3 months for fairly hard term, but it does depends on key word competition )

    just some ideas for to put in the mixola, i'm not saying any are bullet proof

    Thank you for this tips, they sound interesting!
    1. About flash banner, I think it is not allowed to use scripts and flash in auctions. Only thing allowed is to include videos. But about the banner redirecting to a website, I saw this on one auction for some pheromones. But he uses a different method. He has made a site and calls it "manufacturer's site" and on this site the price of his product is way higher than on eBay. So people think, when the manufacturer of the product sells for such a high price, then I will get it for cheap from the eBay seller. In fact, both are the same .....

    But the problem is to get adult traffic. On eBay you already have targeted traffic. If someone on eBay searches for such a product, he is a targeted buyer and he will find your listing .... So your method of redirecting buyers from eBay to a website is a good approach!
