Hello everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone knew of some legitimate dropshippers out there ?

All research I have done so far only seems to turn up scams.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Dean

Might help if you explain exactly what you're after as your post doesn't seem to make any sense.

What are you trying to buy?

I was searching for this a few years back.  There are plenty in the US and I'm happy to dig out the name of one I used for CDs.  Couldn't find anything in NZ or UK.  No one seems to know what it is.  Business opportunity?

It really depends what the OP is talking about. Here in NZ for example drop shipping is incredibly common with a lot of online retailers doing it for products as it saves them having to physically carry stock.

Without understanding exactly what they're referring to it's not really possible to add anything else to the thread.

Hello,

Sorry for not putting enough info on this thread.

I have been looking at setting up a online store where I don't have to carry stock, so therefore I have been looking into dropshipping. However the dropshippers that I have researched seem to be either scams or they don't do what they say they do.

I was after info on a legitimate dropshipper that actually does what they say they do.

At this stage it doesn't matter what product they stock.

hope this helps.

I believe this would vary wildly on industry and products...

dmta: At this stage it doesn't matter what product they stock.


That comment has me a bit confused. Are you after a provider who will drop ship and also warehouse all your product? Or are you talking about drop shipping direct from the wholesaler to your customer?

Then don't you need to find a wholesaler for the products you are wanting to sell, and talk to them about drop-shipping? I'm not sure your question can be answered without knowing what you will be selling.

Banana?

A lot of NZ (tech) wholesalers will ship directly to your customers. Most will supply a branded (your logo) packing slip and invoice with the shipment as well.

Might help a bit if you gave us a hint at what sort of stuff you want to sell?
