    In a nutshell dropshipping works like this. You set up an account with a dropshipper, most reputable ones will require a tax id.

    Anyway, you sell on Amazon, Ebay or create a site a customer orders they pay you, you then turn around and place an order with the dropshipper who charges whatever their costs/fees are. The dropshipper sends the item to the customer. You keep the difference between what you paid and what you charged your customer.

    NO playah...

    1.Uou make a listing for example on ebay..

    2.People buy your product

    3.You collect the payment.

    4.You buy the product from dropshipper

    5.They send the product to the client (you give them the clients contact details) with your name.

    Sell items which are popular.

    also i hope the dropshipping works out for you, depending on your product be careful if your dropshipping from china for several reasons, especially if its replicas of anything..

    Firstly your supplier may ship out late, deffective, broken, low quality or unusable products. Your customer will put a claim against you. Its highly unlikely your supplier will take the goods back and even if they do shipping whatever it is back to china will cost you more than it did china outbound.

    Better if you can to stick to genuine items and buy a small stock and work that way. If you do decide to dropship find someone you really trust and know are 100% reliable (in china difficult to do) or find people locally europe/US that will offer this service for you.

    Best of luck with your business..

    irrelevant as to whether you agree or not. i have lived in china and worked as a trader here for many years and based on what many clients have told me too many people have had bad experiences with dropshipping so i would always recommend anyone against this...sorry if ive offended any china sellers on here but its the truth...

    I dont have anything against Chinese sellers per se' but the turth is that IF you have to exchange/return many times it is out of your own pocket, check with your supplier. Also check shipping costs/times sometimes it is unbelievable. Another thing, make sure the CUSTOMER is aware of possible Import Taxes, it may not happen often but it happens and the customer is the one stuck with the charges.

    Finally many of the items are indeed replicas, here in the US for instance if you get caught you can face some serious issues.

    If you have all those things taken care of then there should be no issues with your supplier.

    You get a dropshipper, setup a site, do ebay, etc. You get the products at a wholesale price. Lets say someone buys a TV at your site. You get that TV for $399. But you sell it at the MSRP, Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price, which is say $550. Customer buys, you pay dropshipper $399. DS ships to customer. You never see any inventory. You make $150. Thats it...basically.

    Let me tell you something. There are NO REAL DROPSHIPPERS online. What I mean by that is no dropshipper is going to advertise themselves like a service. There are sites out there who claim they get everything at wholesale prices, but are really middle men. You have to do your research to find real dropshippers. Search on google and check out that HUGE list in here by dizz.
    That should help. ;)
