    I'm looking for a fulfillment company to hold my items I want to drop ship but I don't want them to inspect my goods. I would like it if they could just take the postal stickers of and keep it in storage until I want to send them. Would this be possible?

    I used a Fullfillment company years ago. The company is PA Depot. Located in Allentown, Pennsylvania. I would have my products shipped there. Then when I got orders, I just submitted the Customers info to them and they shipped the product for me.

    PA Depot was good. But I wasn't selling that many items at the time. I stopped using PA Depot because I gave up selling on Ebay at the time. Mainly because I got into Google Adwords advertising for Affiliate products. I found that I was spending 95% of my time on my Ebay business and it was producing 5% of my profits. I was spending 5% of my time on Google Adwords and it was bringing in 95% of my profits. So, I gave up Ebay to focus all of my time on Google Adwords. Had a good run for 3 years. Haven't spent a dime on Google Adwords in about 7 years now.

    Now I am back selling on Ebay. But I do not plan on using a fullfillment company again. I think the main reason why I started using them was because my Suppliers were in the USA. I am from Canada. I was targeting buyers from the USA. So, I thought that it would make more sense to keep the items in the USA for a few reasons. Shipping costs would be less. If the items do not cross the border, then I do not pay any duty or extra taxes. Would get more sales because buyers from the USA would be more likely to buy if the item was in the USA and not Canada.

    I'm quite sure Shipwire.com has warehouses in the UK, or at least, they service the UK. I've used them in the past, and they're downright great.
