    Hello Everyone. I am a wholesaler of some popular products and own a retail website. I want to start drop shipping for the members(we will call them middle man) here in this community, but I dont know the best and most efficient method to do this.

    The best Idea is to tell trusted members to list the products from my site at a higher price. Once their customers start purchasing, then they can come to my site and place the order with their CC (middle man's CC) and ship it to their customer's address.

    The benefit of this method is that I can quickly process all the orders (same day shipping). however there are some downfalls and I want to protect myself, considering these are "blackhat" forums. 1) The efficiency for the middle man might get cumbersome and get tiring for them. If they have to lets say make 20 orders a day. 2) another issue with this method is that if the member has done many many orders a day and decides to do a chargeback for all the charges then I am in trouble.

    I guess those 2 issues are not a big deal if each middle man only had several orders a month, but I guess I am thinking they have at least 3 orders a day realistically. 20 orders daily was extreme and is only possible if they have the same market as i do.

    Anyways any thoughts on efficiency and protection will be very helpful.

    thanks!

    1. Only work with verified customers, ask for id proof etc.
    2. Use paypal, they can stop or charge back any funds if you can proof you shipped the goods etc.
    3. use an account funding method for orders over 500 usd for example, not so popular but work with serious marketers, ex eBay sellers. they fund their acct with you then they use the money to place orders, for orders under 500 PayPal is just fine and make sure to work with verified merchant accounts only for example. PP is sued by many dropshippers successfully.
    4. share with us (or me) your site url I might be interested since I do some e-tail marketing too.

    Greetings and success 4 you.

    ;)
