Finding the right dropshipper can be a key element in your business' success. There are some specific qualities you should look for.

Dropship Information Tips

  • Make sure you are dealing with a true wholesaler. Compare the prices of like products so that you will be able to avoid middlemen who have already added a profit margin of their own to product and shipping rates.
  • Sample some of the products you are interested in selling. If it's figurines or high tech components, make sure they are products you can put your name on.
  • Obtain a price list and find out how long prices are guaranteed and how often they are adjusted.
  • Establish a method of payment. A wholesaler may require a credit card payment, or s/he may accept payment by invoicing.
  • Make sure you have a clear picture of what shipping charges will be for all drop shipments. High shipping rates can ruin an online business. Make sure there are no "packing" or "handling" surcharges that will be passed onto your customers.
  • Talk to them at length about customer service and how quickly they can correct errors. Find out whether they will take financial responsibility for their errors.
  • Finally, ask them about their business ethic and make sure you understand it. After all, what they ship, how fast they ship it, and how honestly they stand behind it will reflect directly on your business.
