    I am new to the whole dropshipping thing and have been lurking around the forums for a while now and finally decided to post here. If someone can link me to an article about dropshipping or has some info on dropshipping please let me know. Thanks.

    I deal with dropshippers all the time. Just find something people want from a supplier and ask them if they do blind drop shipping, only thing that's going to burn you is if you deal in high end stuff and take payments via PayPal.

    Not sure about the alternatives question, but if you looking for tactical supplies, you can check out green supply they are pretty good and keep a well maintained inventory

    Ok sounds good will look into them, I am just trying to find something to help me with bills right now at this time and hopefully with some work I can go farther with it. This site has a wealth of information. To order from them will I need a business license?

    Much like flash stated, I would start by finding a good supplier for the products you want to sell and then ask if they do dropshipping, preferably blind. Start by researching suppliers for your specfic niche through google or this site. Once you find one, make sure you research their policies good, from shipping time to methods of payment. This very important for long time success in dropshipping.

    Heres a good wholesaler for tactical gear http://www. tacticalgeardistributors. com/. Apply to become a dealer. Great quality products.

    PM me, I can hook you up with a couple reliable wholesalers Ive used in the past.

    Goodluck.

    I think no need of an article about dropshipping. The process is simple.

    1. You get an order
    2. Order from droppshipping company
    3. Droppshipping company ship to your customer

    = You earn money

    I know that much of it, I am asking what kind of buisness liscense I need and how to go about obtaining it and what is the rough estimate of cost to get it.

    I have yet to still find that out.
