    Greeting everyone,

    I would like to start some ecommerce business by doing drop shipping. Adsense wasn't for me (got ban when I was an IM noob, I didn't even know what IM was doing >.>).

    How hard is starting off this kind of business? I am currently reselling physical product (Take online order/phone order > send payment to the main office > shipping department take care of the shipping > They send me the tracking > I update the client).

    - Is the business very similar?
    - Any capital to invest beside having the basic (Hosting, Website, SSL)?
    - I presume there is no need to buy the product in advance right since our objective is just to sell and sent the payment (keeping our share).

    I look forward to all of your replies.

    Regards,

    Chungy

    it should be similar to what you are doing now. The hard part of drop shipping is finding good suppliers with quality products, since you are already selling products, just put them on a website.

    You are right with your assumptions about the dropshipping business. You should just need a domain name and matching email(s), hosting, an ecommerce site, merchant account/payment gateway, and an SSL certificate. Some companies also have affiliate programs where you can just get a link from them, and you will get credit and get paid for any sales you refer. It much easier and cheaper, but you won't make as much as if you set everything up on your own and charge your own prices. The hardest part as Zekiel218 said, is finding good companies to work with who will dropship for you. I have a dropship wholesale authentic perfume and cologne business if you are interested in selling those types of products. Over 7,000 products. I also have a list of DVD wholesale/dropshipping companies I can give you if you are interested in that. If you are interested in either one, PM me and I'll get you what you need.
