A good drop shipper is one that charges no membership fees, and also accepts Paypal for safe and convenent payment.
Why should I use Paypal dropshippers?
Well, use PayPal a lot to sell my dropshipped items. When customers pay me into my paypal account, I like to instantly switch this money into my dropshippers account so they can send the item out on the same day. I don’t like the hassle of transferring the paypal money on my credit card.
Why should I use FREE dropshippers?
To be honest, the free ones are the best ones. The free ones know their products will sell, so they make money from you selling the products. The dropshippers that have dodgy products that won’t sell, charge a membership fee so they know they’re going to make money!
Where can I find these dropshippers???
There is a lot of free drop shippers out their that are great, people tend to keep them secret though, if everyone started to it they would have too much competition. Often people sell dropshippers list, with website and contact details to good, legitimate and free dropshippers.
I actually emailed a small chinese retailer, that didn’t actually dropship. In fact they had never even heard of drop shipping, and I asked them whether I could dropship their products. I built a firm business relationship with this company, and sold many of their products. I think I’m the only dropshipper they have, they have still not introduced a dropshipping service. It pays sometimes to ask retailers that have cheap products, if they will dropship.
How much money can I make dropshipping?
Depends how much work you want to put in marketing the products. Ebay’s a good start to sell the items. I was making around $100 a week selling PSP’s alone on eBay. That is my most successful product, and it had the most competition. I was very careful with my marketing strategies, featuring my auctions and choosing very good keywords. I think you should aim to sell both niche and mass market products, see which one works best for you. Don’t put your prices to high, aim to make an extra 10% on each product you sell. I think dropshipping can be a great EXTRA income, like it was for me, but can easily become a full time income.
