    I know this wouldn't be popular and their are some very honest sellers but the fact is that this fee would only verify the true individuals or companies that do post in that section. I am not saying a fee would stop people from scamming but it wouldn't be so easy as stating I can supply XYZ product pm me for my site and price when we have no idea if its a replica or a person that has no intention on doing any wholesaling. Its just a thought. Any comments or thoughts either way are appreciated and again this is not a personal attack on anyone just a thought to protect the community.

    I'd pay a fee to post and I like the thought of having a Mod to verify what I'm selling. It's kinda scary knowing anybody with a 0 post count can just come in and set up shop.

    There are currently several ideas on the table for the Dropship section. Just be patient and when we have word from DD on how he wants to move forward I'm sure there will be an announcement.

    How exciting, I can't wait! I hope it's just like a BST.

    Would be good to see something different done in there, as Marusia has outlined any old Joe can signup and set up shop; with the ever growing possibility of members being scammed. Which isn't what BHW is about :).

    For the time being you just need to be careful when choosing who you do business with. If they're new and don't have references, don't buy - plain and simple. I agree wholeheartedly that there should be a tightening up of the guidelines in that section but as always your common sense is your first line of defense against scammers. In the interim, if anything looks out of place just click the report button and a moderator will look into it. ;)
