View Full Version : What’s dropshipping?

12-23-2005, 09:07 PM
Hello- I'm new to the idea of working at home (I thought I just had to keep being broke & getting deeper in debt) and I'm looking at all the options. My husband & I had always talked about selling stuff on ebay fort wholesale, so finding people that actually do this is really exciting for me.

Anyway, you guys keep talking about "dropshipping". What is that? And is there anything else important I should know about this type of business?

Drop shipping is when you find a manufacturer or warehouse company who has products you sell, than place the order with them and they ship to your customer usually with your business name on the package. The other alternative is you have to purchase the Item and be in receipt of it then sell it and than ship it yourself. Good Luck!!!smileys/smiley1.gif

OK I get it, thanks. But now I'm wondering why a manufacturer would need people to sell for them? Why not just sell their own stuff?

The more people they have selling for them the more they sell.

Well that makes sense!smileys/smiley9.gif

I'm wanting to dabble in this myself. I'm glad there is a forum for this where I can learn and ask questions! Since I'm sure I will soon.

If you like Bath and Body Products, I am with a couple of different Companies that have been super businesses for me. I would love to share more info., if you are interested. Both of them are very dependable and always ship within 3-7 days, so even on Ebay, I have never had a problem with my customers.

Email me if interested in more details: [email protected]

Many Blessings,
