    hi im thinking of starting dropshipping on ebay and amazon. I found some stuffs cheaper in chinese sites selling at a cheaper rate for wholesale and they have a min quantity limit and they have also said they support dropshipping. I want to know how you guys doing this you either buy a lot and ship it to customers yourself or by contacting them to ship each to different addresses.

    Process is lengthy and there are lot of mini steps involved but you are at the right section. Do go through the informational threads listed here and then make a query when something is not clear. Right now, you need to be given lot of explanation which I don't think any would be ready to do

    There are really only 2 steps to dropship

    Research - find out about products, supplier or costumers

    Selling - this really is kinda like affilates products, search for the places you want to sell and sell that product with your margin.

    Reading trough BHW helps alot.

    The most important part is to research the product, make sure you calculate your costs precisely and maybe even sell a few first and drop ship them from other sellers to see if there's real demand for the product before you order a big shipment.

    Try testing the item yourself, don't get stuck with a large quantity of inferior goods.

    Make sure you get your calculations right. It's a fairly competitive industry to get into.

    Its a long and complex process of dropshipping of different products.
    You have to use a ship for a lot of products at the same time.
    Otherwise it'll be much expensive for you.
