    Hi guys ...


    ... i was browsing around to find some dropshippers for making some money on e*gay.

    Now i want to use the auctions for 2 revenue streams ... one is selling the product itself and second is to have some CS code on there.

    I found
    d o b a . c o m and
    s h o p s t e r . c o m

    -> they both seem to be nice and they make quite some claims on there website ... but is all that true?

    I read a couple reviews ... some are good some are saying those companies are scam. :confused:

    Somebody here that has made experience with any of those 2 service providers?

    Thanks in advance
    catman

    no they're overpriced. For wholesaling to work you really need to find a distributor for a specific type of product, something they specialize in (watches, jewelry, toys, games etc).

    And I would recommend selling refurbished items as they get you much better deals.

    This is an old post but, I passed by it I'll give my review on Doba. They are overpriced in certain areas, like movies and DVDs. They also tend to be out of stock on many products and not let you know until you put in the order. They do ship well however when they do have product. They are middle-men themselves as they get product delivered by manufacturers. They also have alot of junk items, basically no computers, and so on. One cool feature they have is the ability for you to download their product database into a .csv as well as download their product images into a zip file. You can do this by category and subcategory. That's what I'll say for them.
