    Hello. I am investigating this whole ebusiness thing. Does any here know of NON-MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION dropshippers, not these pay for access to dropshippers comapny lists (doba.com), scams. If you have used a wholesaler that you liked for price, quality and service let me know. I need somewhere to start.

    Also, do you know of any wholesalers who will drop ship for electronics goods (I would think they all would do that)? I am tired of the scams and I know many of you have found good wholesale companies like on Globalsources.com, which is a good site because it is affiliated with the SmallBusinessAssociation.

    Any help would be mch appreciated! Thank you!!!!

    Tradekey.com is a pretty good place to find dropshippers/wholesalers and it's free. Just be careful and do your research on the company before buying a product.

    If you have any questions, pm me.

    There is a 'dropshipping and wholesale' forum here.

    Might be wise to start there ... the name sort of gives it away.

    Please use the search button in future. We all know its fustrating etc. when you need an answer, but the other general discussion you will come across will help you ALOT - trust me. ;)

    this has been asked a million times, but there never seems to be a good answer. There isn't any special dropshipper out there that has cheap prices, no monthly fee, sells legit stuff, and will cater to all your needs.

    Well, I'm sure there is, but no one wants to give up their supplier if they've found one like that.

    exactly. its like giving away a trade secret, you wouldn't give it away. if you all found the perfect drop shipper, would you share it? your kidding yourself if you think you would.

    There are many dropshippers/wholesalers out there, you just have to find them.

    The two best places to start are tradekey.com and alibaba.com.

    I use tradekey and found a dropshipper that I used for about a year. Very low prices, "free dropshipping", etc.

    Check those places out and do what the others sayed in the forum, search around.

    The point of a forum is to archive all content, you will find a lot of VERY GOOD content here to help you learn, so like I said, do some searching and you will find what you're looking for.

    I have had good success with DHGate. I'm not going to tell you what my niche is but I will tell you leave ipod related accesories a lone as they are hard to sell on auction sites (my experience). Also I have been using the Doba seven day free trail and it has its pros and cons. Alibaba is another good place someone suggested but if you can by in bulk (not light bulk) you will get some good deals (the lead time for me kinda sucked though)

    what is good success? $1000 + profits per month? I like DHGate escrow system..first order..got faked memory card but at least I can use paypal and own escrow system. Less number of wholesaler compare to other site but for start out, I think DHGate will do the job.

    Go through the dropshipper threads here carefully. There is some very good info in there.
    Try not to be in a hurry, so you don't get burned.
    Check out the companies carefully, otherwise if you sell on ebay and things aren't delivered on time your rep will suffer.

    Never send money to Chinese companies through western union.
    And most of all " if it sounds to good to be true......"

    If you want a really crappy dropshipper/supplier, go to dhgate...Chinese run operation.

    Stinks the first time you get into it.

    You're saying that DHGate is crap. Hmmm I beg to differ but people on here are right. If they don't offer paypal then I don't use business with them.

    Hello,

    If you would like to find a free service for wholesalers and drop shippers you should try Alibaba. They will allow you to use it for free (They do offer a premium membership as well) but you can navigate where you want without having to pay.

    Hope this helps!

    simpledistributors is one I used in the past and I can vouch they are direct for sure. Do your research before you choose a drop shipper or wholesaler though.

    I am glad you can vouch for them, but I can tell you they are not the direct source. Their markeup is at least 20% of true wholesale. I will not tell you the actual distributor but just know you are not going through them, you are going through a 2nd tier middleman probably a dropshipper. Do some research on the brand names and you will find the main supplier of these items. Hint: Maxam
