Hey So I've imported on and off for about 8 years and for me, dropshipping was eating tremendously at my profits. I'm aware this won't be the case for everyone, but in the event you feel the same way, this is how I got out of it. 1.) I found a quality supplier overseas. I used Alibaba, DHGate, and simple Google searches to find suppliers who could provide me samples. 2.) After verifying samples I did a small bulk order to the house. I want to see how they ship the goods first hand and handle my order. 3.) My second bulk order was larger, I shipped directly to a fulfillment center near my home, but if you don't feel like doing research, go with FBA by Amazon, I've used them 2 years now, not an issue thus far. All steps are vital. You don't want to buy bulk before testing samples. You don't want to send your first bulk directly to your fulfillment center.
