    I do dropshipping on a regular basis. And I make some money at it. I would not be able to support my family on it alone, but I don't work at it at all. I seldom add new items, just sort of let it run by itself.

    I do not do ebay, just sell from my own site. The problem with selling dropshipped items on ebay are several.

    First, so is everyone else. There are a number of companies who promote selling their items on ebay and the end result is 1,000 sellers all putting stuff up below cost and jacking up shipping charges to make any money at all.

    Next, you also run the risk of your supplier being out of the item once you sell it. This can hurt you in a big way if you can't deliver after the auction.

    Third, the whole process is self defeating, with constantly lowering prices not only cutting profits, but undercutting the perceived value of the entire product line.

    So, dropshipping from your own site works well, with ebay it is touchy.

    re: dropshipping
    Hi, I dropship FULL TIME for a living with 60% of my products going through ebay.

    Altough the previous poster is right in that there are many people dropshipping on ebay, the key is to find a niche. I sell childrens climbing frames, paddling pools etc. stuff like that, and it does very well. My mark up can be anywhere from 25% to 60%.

    Some dropshippers are better than others and this can only be estblished through trial and error.

    I also have the same question: I just posted it in a different section of the forum. My interest is by means of helping my clients "beef up" their website inventory to help diversify their marketing potential, etc.

    Well let's be honest: everyone wants to make $ on line! So my clients are looking for ways to do this and are asking my opinion. I have none; since I don't drop ship, but it did make me start researching. I'd love it if you would think of me and email me if you find a dropshipper of interest! I would be most grateful; and I will gladly do the same for you.

    Thanks!

    Dropshipping
    I am planning to do dropshipping myself with my storefront.net platform (which supports dropshipping options).

    The problem I am currently facing is to get dropshippers in Asia Pacific. Another problem I foresee is to get the dropshippers commitment in delivering the products quickly and with good quality and condition.

    I would like to sell lifestyle products and gadgets. If anyone can help me with this, would be much appreciated.

    Dropshipping - perhaps more work than worth?
    I too am in the midst of trying to organize a drop-ship store. Its a bit of a task! Any input is greatly appreciated. I think various income streams are important for the home based entrepenuer, and since my main source is up and running very well on its own, I thought I'd try the drop-ship arena. I haven't found too many successful people yet though, but I'll keep you posted....

    I am interested in learning more about dropshipping. I would really love to run a store that is related to cooking. I wish I could do the affiliate program through Amazon to keep things easy while still making money, but I can't because of the state that I live in. I hope someone can drop in with some helpful tips and tricks about starting and running a dropshipping business.

    I've heard a lot about this before. Several people have claimed it's the best work at home business there is. I've also read about people claiming a $100,000 salary with dropshipping though. I've always wondered if that was true. I mean anything is possible if you put enough time into it. But that's a really good living.
