    No, I'm not about to ask how, who or where about dropshippng companies. There's enough threads being vague about that.

    what I want to know is if these places have a minimum order limit... like I have to sell 10 to meet their order quota and I only sold 9, so they aren't shipping anything....

    All the other things, I'll screw that up on my own.

    thanks.

    Can't you just buy one more thing? Buy something cheap that you personally like or something you could sell. Don't let a big order get held up over that.

    You can play around with it.

    1) Just sell the items in bunch as it is. I saw many people do that and they make quite a decent profits.

    2) You can buy them in bulk for yourself and resell it again. Actually this is the better way to control the quality of the item and shipping time.

    sorry, maybe I should've phrased that better. but it's 5am. what can you do? lol


    I was asking if it were possible to only order an extremely small amount of products from a dropshipper or did things always have to be ordered in big bulks.

    I've never sold a thing on egay and I want to test the water a little bit....

    But to be fair, I kinda got the answer based on your replies. Sorry for the confusion. thanks again.

    a dropshipper should ship 1 item per order thats why they are dropshippers, Unless they are wholesale dropshippers. Beware dropshippers prices are not far offf the original price, you wont gay enough after egay fees, paypal fees.
    Your best off buying wholesale. May pallets of returns or fake goods :)

    Hey graphicnut. Would you clarify that sentence. Are you saying "may" as in the month? Where's the best place to find pallets. I know I could google it, but I thought I'd ask you since you brought it up. Thx.

    Yeah. Here the trick. ALMOST all but NOT all. :) Once you get the legit one, the money is there for you.
