    Hi There,

    I'm Conor. Recently started struggling to pay bills so I researched into dropshipping abit and I'm willing to give it a go. I know of all the pros/cons etc.

    I'm finding it tremendously hard to find a good dropshipper so I'm trying my luck here.

    I will sell anything really to get started once there is some profit to be made.

    Thanks in advance.

    For pure dropshipping try out http://www.dx.com or http://www.dhgate.com (beware, lots of scammer here). Dx.com is the best in my point of view as it allow paypal payment.
    Aliexpress is another potential consideration but shipping takes too long unless you pay extra for DHL. This is not a preferred option as Aliexpress will ask for your credit card proof etc once you start buy more.

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    Looking into DX. Do I need to fill an application or something to start dropshipping from them or can I just list & sell?

    Thanks

    No need for application. For DX, I suggest that you sell products where inventories are based in the USA if you are selling to USA market for fast free shipping. This will allow you to beat your competition by pricing and shipping. And also, the trick here is to ask for unique pictures from seller or order one product and take the picture on your own. Do not use stock pictures when possible as the potential buyer can just use Google image search and find out that you are dropshipping easily if you are using stock images.

    Oh see I hadn't thought of the unique picture. Appreciate that.

    I'm actually based in Ireland, I'm pretty much in between Asia & US which I guess is a good thing. I will be selling globally so I will research into shipping times/prices etc when i'm up & running.

    I'm seeing alot of DX inventory on the likes of ebay etc already and they're pretty much matching the price on DX which begs the question, where is the profit to be made? Unless they're sourcing it cheaper again?

    And also, when I'm selling i'm going to need an EAN number. Where would one find this number when sourcing from DX etc?

    Be creative. You can sell up group buy through Facebook local selling groups. And collect payment upfront through paypal as it offers payment protection. Once shipment is in, you can distribute to these buyers. To build trust, you can meet seller face to face but be honest with them that you are making a spread of profits and providing a service to help them get items that they want cheaper. After you get the payment from Paypal, you can then use credit card/ alipay (my preference) to make payment so that you too will get buyer protection. See, no money involve? All it takes is some creativity and research into items that people around you wants to buy.
