    I've heard that there's decent $$$ in dropshipping. However, I know nothing about it. I'm gonna start doing research, but was wondering if there was a simple guide or thread floating around that would outline the basics for me.

    Don't think there is. Just have to research what you can then trial and error.

    The general thing about dropshipping is to ship direct from the supplier to the customer. The main thing you need to check is that the shipping is fast enough and the turnaround is quick.

    I used to have a supplier that took 21 days to ship after his quick 2 days before that. That fucked up about 20 orders for me.

    BassTrackerBoats, Just moved here about 7mos ago from Ohio. I lost every thing I had in the fall of the economy. So, I packed up a duffel bag full of clothes and drove to Fl. I'm loving it here and am slowly getting back on my feet. However, I need to make more $$$. Maybe I can pick at your brain someday over coffee or a beer.

    HoNeYBiRD: Thanks for uploading that!!!

    Dude - I'm over in Jacksonville now as my wife wanted to buy a place closer to our kids... she thinks it's only money. Feel free to email/PM/ask here anything you need and I'll be glad to help.

    We still own our condo over there as well as one in Ormond Beach but will be up here for a while.
