    I've been looking at:

    thepowersellersunion
    doba

    I was wondering which one of these companies was better for drop shipping. I would love to hear some feedback from anyone who currently uses them.

    Thanks very much.

    Thanks guys.

    I was looking at dhgate. Looks like exactly what I was looking for. One question thou, do most of the sellers there dropship and is it sent from China?

    Thanks.

    I have lots of experience in this area, first I would like to tell you that you have to be careful now a days when ordering from china suppliers, Always ask for the suppliers last shipments sent in the last 7 days, if it take him or her longer than 5-10 min to provide this info, RUN! What you really want are the shipments that are on the way to the customers home and have not made it yet. By doing this , will allow you to see if the goods pass customs.

    Another point I would like to give you is, when you communicate with your future supplier , tell them you are from somewhere else besides where you really are, for example if you are from New York, tell them you are from California or another location that you are sort of familiar with , the reason behind this is , You Will Be Your First Customer! Get a sample order to your real location to check quality, service, and the amount of time it will take you to get the goods. If it takes the supplier 12 days for you to get your droppshipped order, just know that you are in trouble! RUN!

    I can go on and on and enlighten many about the subject but I dont think I have enough room. Hope this helps for starters. 3:1.5.9.18.19

    Is worldwidebrand an alternative for dropshipping? they claimed to have over 8000 list of suppliers with only slightly over 500 that come from outside usa. Being a non usa citizen, we are iust wondering if its worth for us to invest that 299 usd.

    Thanks guys.

    I've been doing some research, but I just don't know if I want to trust these China dropshippers, I've been reading about some horror stories. But I have also read some success stories.

    Is it better to dropship or buy in bulk for a cheaper price. Most of the sellers on DHGate seem to only sell in bulk? Should I contact them and see if they will drop the price?

    Again thanks for everyones help.

    I would stay away from doba. Unless your are experianced or know what you are doing. Doba is not a good place for beginners. Profit margins are not that much either and membership price isn't cheap. Plus remember that they are a middle man.

    i have purchased from dhgate before, bose headphones. it all depends on who you are buying from.

    look at feedback, work off of that.

    It is important for you to know that when using DHGate they have an escrow service I strongly suggest you take advantage of as this is your security. The pictures do not tell the whole story and this is the internet.

    They have a beautiful musical instrument line they used to claim as genuine like gibson and fender guitars but we both know where are made and the dollars one would pay for an authentic piece.

    they can copy anything it seems buuuttttt! Be Careful Use the escrow service and be safe.You can read about it on their site.
