    I have read several posts about this topic. I have actually already invested almost $80 with scam dropship lists that ran into dead ends. Not asking for a handout but more of a guide thank you for your time.

    Start with repu drop shipping supplier such as chinabuye. Build a list of customers through sign up, and newsletter subscription then send them daily, weey or monthly updates.

    A head start is to use ads or affiliate to generate lead or sale.

    SEO for ecommerce is needed but can be built in long run. Use ads and affiliate to to test your products first so you can generate sales and reinvest into your website

    Thanks alot I have filled out my tax applications so that I can buy from the wholesaler directly. Does this sound like I am on the right track for getting started?

    or you can contact boutique manufacturers who need more orders and negotiate with them.

    what do you mean by boutique manufacturers. Maybe an example would help me understand better.

    you need a tax id and a reseller cert. look into and get it, otherwise you'll never be able to hook up with a real manufacturer.

    Research google with "drophship" and the item you want to sell. You should never have to pay for a list, or to join a real dropshipper.
