This article answers the three most frequently asked questions that resellers have about companies that drop ship.
FAQ 1: How To Find A Drop Shipper?
Answer: Depending upon what are you searching and where are you searching, the task of finalizing a drop shipper can be easy or tiresome. The most common path is searching at a search engine like Google or Yahoo. Search by typing in keywords like ‘drop ship jewelry’ or ‘drop ship phones.’ This way will take a lot of time. Easier way will be to narrow down you search. You can do this by searching in an online wholesale directory like SaleHoo. Most of such directories, including SaleHoo, come with a one time membership fee. But usually this membership fee is quite nominal. SaleHoo and other similar directories offer supplier that have been screened and reviewed.
FAQ 2: Is It Fine If Drop Shipper Asks For A Monthly Fee?
Answer: You should stay away from any supplier who asks for a monthly fee. The reason being, you should pay only when you buy the products and only for the products you have bought. If in a particular month you did not buy anything from the drop shipper, you shouldn’t be paying a single penny.
FAQ 3: Is A Tax ID Needed?
Answer: Most of the drop ship suppliers will not ask you for a tax ID. They will simply ask for your name, address and credit card details. However, it is recommended that you get a tax ID or business license for yourself. Obtain it especially if you are serious about this business and wish to do it for long term. Having a tax ID will give a more professional look to your company.
