1. Importance Of A Dropship Forum
A dropship forum is a great place for merchants to network with
other retailers and look for solutions and ideas for establishing,
running and expanding their dropshipping businesses. The economic
crisis, which began in 2008, has forced many retailers to shun
conventional methods of doing business and move to the
dropshipping business model. Dropshipping allows online retailers to
sell their products without the need of buying supplies and hiring
manpower to take care of packaging and shipping. As a result, this
business model has become quite popular.
Having said that, dropshipping has its own problems. The most
common one is getting a good dropshipper on whom you can rely for
quality products and good customer service. As a result, many
dropship forums have come into being so that online retailers can
come together, share their views and experiences, and overcome the
problems posed by dropshippers.

Here Are The Key Benefits Of A Dropship Forum:
Get References
Often, the retailers who are new to the dropship business do not
know who to contact for dropshipping services. These retailers could
get references from a dropship directory or a dropship forum.
Get Feedback
Getting references alone is not sufficient. Before dealing with a
dropshipper, you should get feedback about them from retailers who
have used their services. There have been a number of dropshipping
scams, and therefore, getting feedback is absolutely essential to

know more about a dropshipper and what to expect while dealing
with them.
Get Expert Opinions
A dropship forum usually has several experienced and successful
retailers that can help you solve your problems. For example, if you
are facing dropshipping problems, like late delivery of items, items
out of stock, or no response from customer service, you could get
expert opinions on how to sort out these issues. Dropship forums
help you get mentors that can help you make your business
successful.
Get Honest Opinions
The ideas and opinions expressed in forums are usually genuine.
Unlike newspapers and magazines where reporters and writers have
their vested interests, forums consists of retailers that express their
true opinions and experiences. However, the instance of a
dropshipper posing as a retailer to advertise and promote their
services cannot be ruled out.

Networking
Dropship forums allow you to expand your business network.
Networking is important to get business and the latest updates and
news of the business world. All this helps you in long run.
Though there are many advantages of a dropship forum, you have to
be careful while forming networks and following the advice of
retailers on a forum. They could have a vested interest, and
therefore, you should guard yourself. However, if you work and act
smartly, you could benefit a lot from dropship forums.

2. 5 Reasons to Avoid Dropshipping When Selling on
eBay
Every day I get people asking me why dropshipping is not good for
eBay and every day I give them the same list of five reasons. So, I
thought I would post it as an article so everyone can learn. Here are
the 5 reasons eBay sellers should avoid dropshipping (in reverse
order).
#5 - Out of Stock Equals Bad Feedback
Dropshippers often run out-of-stock on popular items. This means
that after you sell the item on eBay and then go to your supplier to
have the item dropshipped you learn that the item is not in stock.
You then have to tell your buyer the bad news and will usually get
some bad feedback in return. The eBay forums are filled with sellers
who have been destroyed by the bad feedback they received by
trying dropshipping. They are also filled with complaints from buyers
who did not receive the item they ordered because the seller was
using a dropshipper -- and after the sale informed the buyer that the
item was not available.

#4 - PayPal Will Hold Your Funds
About a year ago, in January of 2008, eBay and PayPal issued some
new policies. One of which is to put a HOLD on funds. Here is the
quote from eBay's policy:
"In a small percentage of cases where it has been determined the
risk of dissatisfied buyers is higher, PayPal may delay release of the
payment funds to the seller until the buyer has left a positive

feedback or 21 days have passed without a dispute, claim,
chargeback or reversal filed on that transaction."
Any new eBay seller who tries using dropshipping as a method for
sourcing their products will find that they cannot access their funds
until after the product has arrived at their customer's door. This
eliminates one of the most appealing aspects of dropshipping - the
ability to sell a product and THEN use the buyer's payment to fund
the purchase. With PayPal holding your money for 21 days this will
not be possible.

#3 - Direct from the Source Competition
This is a relatively new phenomenon that has come about by the
recent explosion of "direct from China" dropshippers. Simply put,
this means that many of these dropshipping companies are actually
selling the items on eBay directly themselves. They are "double
dipping". While they provide a website that will dropship products
to your eBay customers direct from China, they are also selling the
same products on eBay themselves. To witness this one only needs
to look in the electronics category on eBay. Many of the listings have
the item location show Hong Kong or some other location in China.
Yes, the dropshippers themselves are competing with their
customers.
#2 - Profit Margin is Below $0
That is not an error. The profit margin you will face when using
dropshipping to sell on eBay is most often zero. Nothing. Nada. In
fact, most people who first try using a dropshipper to supply their
eBay products end up getting frustrated and crying "the price my
dropshipper is selling the product for is MORE than the price the

product is selling for on eBay." And they are correct. You see
wholesale is all about buying in quantity. When you use
dropshipping you are buying just one of an item and cannot expect a
wholesale price.
Now why paying a bit more for an item may not be a big deal if
you're selling it for top dollar at your local store, it is a HUGE deal
when trying to sell on eBay. eBay is a place people go to get a deal.
They do not want to pay full retail price, and chances are they can
find the item at a rock bottom price if they just look around eBay for
a bit. Because even if you cannot sell an item for the lowest possible
price (because you are using dropshipping), there are thousands of
other eBay sellers who can. So it is true. The price you get from your
dropship supplier will often be more than the product sells for on
eBay.

#1 - Dropshipping Does Not Work on eBay
Considering the other four reasons not to use dropshipping when
selling on eBay this might seem obvious. And it should be! The
bottom line is that dropshipping and eBay are a toxic combination.
While eBay is the place to sell products to people who want a deal,
dropshipping is the way to buy products at the highest possible
"wholesale" price. And, while your dropshipper may offer thousands
of products -- they probably have thousands of clients like yourself
who are also listing the items on eBay. It simply doesn't work.
Well, I hope I have convinced you to stay away from dropshipping
when it comes to selling on eBay. For more information on why
dropshipping on eBay is a bad business decision please visit
DropShipping Sucks and read the page. Not only will it explain in

detail why dropshipping will never lead you to eBay success, it will
also offer you an alternative that works.
That's all for now and remember the age-old wisdom. If it sounds
too good to be true, it usually is. This is definitely the case when it
comes to eBay and dropshipping.

3. Considering a Wholesale Dropship Supplier? Check
These 5 Sites First
To dropship or not to dropship, that is the question. If you're thinking
of using a wholesale dropship supplier as part of your supply chain
management technique and you look one way then you see glowing
reviews of the system with people saying their customers are
happier, they're making more money and it cleans 90% of all difficult
carpet stains.
But if you turn the other way you hear horror stories about how a
particular eBay trader's seller reputation went down the toilet simply
because they had chosen to chance their arm with a particular
dropship company.
So what's the real story? Is dropshipping a blessing or a curse and
who should you believe?

Much like cooking the secret of dropshipping successfully, whether
it's electronics you're dropshipping or clothes, is in where and how
you get the source and how much work you put into the preparation.
In fact doing background research into potential wholesale dropship
firms is often the difference between a successful partnership and a
sunk business.
Here are 5 websites and internet services that will not only save you
money when tracking down a wholesale dropship supplier but cost
absolutely nothing to use:

anonymous entities there are several whois services online that will
