    so i tried shopster yesterday to see what their prices are like...

    ipod touch 32 Gig

    350 or something like that....nice price! cool!
    but wait....

    50 dollar transaction fee
    plus 2.50 drop ship fee
    and then 11 dollars shipping/handeling

    and it costs 49.00 a month pluss a 100 dollar set up fee...

    Ha Ha Ha, i can get a cheaper ipod touch at best buy

    that's how everything was w/shopster... the initial price was cool...but when you factor in all the fees, you are basically paying retail for their shit

    My experience was unpleasant as well. 90% of the stuff is really bad and not profitable but there are some things that you can make some profit on. But the reason I stopped using them was their poor tracking system. I simply couldn't take it and just quit it:D

    Yah, I think it has been mentioned a few times on BHW that most of these "middleman" drop shippers like Shopster are all shit cans!

    Doba Shopster are basically the same thing, you really cant make any decent profit from it, the best way will always be buying bulk.

    You really need to go deep down, also forget about brand name items (already over saturated market and small profits) Try going through Chinese directories e.g. Tradekey, Global Sources (they send me a magazine for free every year with all the latest chinese electronics, etc)
