    Hi everyone,

    I'm quite new here so I don't know if this previously discussed. Is it possible that you just start a dropshipping website where the customer is paying directly to the supplier?

    What I have seen is that the customer pays you (the webshop), and the webshop is ordering and paying the supplier. Is it possible that the customer pays to the supplier, and that I (the webshop) just get a commission from the supplier?

    Are there suppliers which are working this way?

    Thanks.

    Yes they're called affiliate programs. You provide the traffic to their web store and receive a commission on purchases made.

    Have a look in the affiliate program section.

    You can simply make amazon affiliate site then and you will get comission from every sale made on your site. I don't know about the aprox earnings because I don't "do" amazon but I saw interesting journeys and earnings. Good luck

    I know affiliate programs actually, I do have a blog with affiliate. But I want a payment screen just in my website. So the customer has to feel that he's on a real webshop.

    You can have similar but the customer will always have to go to the retailers site to check out.

    You can have products added to a cart on your site then transfer the customer to the retailer site to checkout.

    I have no idea how though so you would need to ask somebody else. Some sellers on this site sell amazon affiliate stores like this.

    Yes it would be possible but would you trust a bot to order the item for you correct every time? You would need all orders to be place into a database stored with all information then at the end of the day everything would go off and process the orders imagine if a customer miss spells the address or cocks it up your bets going to send that out. It is possible, would someone code it for you ? Maybe you would have to pay how much? god knows. But to be honest Just stick with affiliate schemes if you can't be bothered to place the orders. Doing orders manually doesn't take that much time. You should go for items with larger profits beginners mistake is to sell items at less than 30% profit. Your wanting to make over $5 for it to be worth your time entering them details. Some people even forget to add charges and end up making a loss.

    Good luck!
