    Check the wholesale and drop-shipping section of the forum or message different suppliers on alibaba to see if they offer drop shipping for products you are interested in.

    Then you will need to have a very rich target audience if your dropshipper is gonna be from some 1st tier country :). Their products are very expensive.

    Buy in bulk and have it sent to a warehouse and have them actually do the shipping and handling. Should get good pricing on bulk items and shipping.

    avoid dropshipping networks. Most of them are scams or at best net losers because people selling items there are selling on eBay for the same price they're selling to you. For example DS Domination is a MLM scam run by a guy who used to sell people a pamphlet on how to do the Amazon/eBay drop shipping for $249.

    just try to find one product that works. there are a lot of sites you can look at for supply. but, try to go direct with the manufacturer. just find one product that has a profit margin, trades in the same currency as you sell, and you make money after transaction costs. you need a learning curve. better to scale once you have it all tight.

    dude, you say you're making a million $ a year already. Why do you need to be recruiting newbies to sell for you?

    I understand the general apprehension with sellers from Asia, but you just really need to take full responsibility over the item and REQUEST SAMPLES. The profit margins are too good to leave behind for some sort of US network.

    For electronics you have synnex, tech data, and ingram micro as distributors. They will dropship for you upon agreement. You will need to volume buy as a business to get discounts on the items, else you are paying full retail price.
