Although I have always used SaleHoo, I found this other dropshipping company that can rival the company I’ve been using for years. This is Worldwide Brands, which has been acknowledged by eBay and at the same time operated by its very own Chris Malta, eBay Radio’s Product Outsourcing Editor. This company also has a whole team of researchers always on the lookout for trustworthy wholesale suppliers which they can add to their growing directory. This company also follows the three secrets of eBay Powersellers-knowing what’s hot and currently selling like hotcakes in the eBay market, researching on your target market, and using digital images of the items you are selling to make your buyers salivate over your goods.
But in general, the business of dropshipping can be very useful for eBay retailers. The beauty of dropshipping lies in the fact that it enables retailers to avoid buying excess stock that may not be sold after all. The retailer does not have to thing about that; all that he has to think about is how to promote and advertise his store. The rest will be handled by his chosen dropshipping company, even ensuring that the retailer gets the best deals. Correspondence with a dropshipping company should be through a personal meeting, but if that’s not possible, phone correspondence will do. This is more secure than email.
As an eBay seller, you can sell the product at a price enough to generate profit but still a little bit below the retail price. Moreover, you can setup an eBay auction anytime. For your first business venture, don’t stock your store with weird and obscure products – these will likely be snubbed by the buying public. Instead, opt for everyday products. Who knows, you might even develop your own dropshipping business! Retailers can take advantage of these companies since they can have thousands of products that they can sell in online auctions or flea markets.
Of course, everything’s not sugar and spice with dropshipping companies. Sometimes, they can send a faulty product or even a downright incorrect item. But then, these are the risks that you have to deal with if you want to have a dropshipper. This seldom happens anyway. You can also try shipping to other countries, though the costs may be greater. But hey, it’s a good way of expanding your business!
