    They appear legit but I would want to see some of their prices upfront before coughing up £40 for an account. Also, a lot of dropshippers aren't very competitive with their p&p which means that your eBay rating may drop if you don't adjust your figures accordingly.

    Just quickly googling them suggests that they import goods from Alibaba.

    Thanks Topsytips, I have actually researched them - found some AWFUL reviews, but found some ok ones as well - so who knows for sure.. Their franchise offer is only £75 and the offer looks pretty good. However, apparently they are one of the biggest scammers of all time! As far as I know its a one man band, he's even set up his own forum doing his own reviews! If it is a scam - hell he's good at it! But I was disappointed and was hoping someone might tell me otherwise.. Anyway I'm desparetely looking for a legit UK dropshipper with proper branded gear - but have yet to find one.. Thanks again though for taking the time to reply. :)

    No probs...another one not to go for is a company called "The Select."

    I joined them several years back when I first started out and was really naive. Fortunately, I did get my money back, after harrassing them non-stop and finding other equally dis-satisfied customers who had reported them to Trading Standards.

    To be perfectly honest, whilst dropshipping, in theory at least, is a great business concept, the profit margins just weren't there to make it worth my while.

    I've more or less given up with tangible goods to be honest and make a nice income from selling eBooks. For example, in the last week I have had 3 sales of a public domain product (which I had only just listed) and it netted me just under £100 profit...all on autopilot!

    Yes Ive heard The Select are dodgy. Ive also heard that they might be connected to topwholesale. Who knows.. Its really annoying when you're trying to get started, just one scam after another. However, Im not giving up!
    Have you heard of InstantStore.com?

    Cool about your eBooks - did you write them yourself?
