I just sold my first Doba item on ebay. So I was trying to figure out how to send the item, and I looked in my Doba inventory to find out that now the product I just sold to a customer on ebay is no longer at Doba (at zero in stock?) What the heck do I do??? Does this happen and I just wait till he re-stocks the item? Return the money back to the ebay customer?
Please if you can help it would be awesome.
Stay away! Stay far away from DOBA. I would tell you my experience but it would ruin my day and get me angry. So I want to have a good day so take my advice STAY AWAY!
Stay away from DOBA. I signed up for information and they called me repeatedly / daily for months (even after I asked them many times to stop contacting me). VERY UNETHICAL company to work with. Do your reviews because it sounds like a scam. I'm pretty sure they sold my information too, because after these calls started, other companies followed (this has never happened before).

Well, with excitement and motivation I started this blog and I was going to take over the ebay world using the simple but effective concept of drop shipping. Opps!
So far and not so good. I have been looking through the DOBA catalogs now for some time and cannot find anything that is selling for more on eBay than it is through them. Although it is too early to give up I must admit that the excitement of yesterday has melted into the apprehension of today. I am starting to rethink my plan.
I have already started to look for other options. One would be to use DOBA and create my own website, the other is to look for other drop shippers. Though a google search led me to a site called Drop Shipping Sucks which is trying to sell me some guide but the information they post about drop shipping does seem to make sense. If that is the case then drop shipping makes no sense. ARGH!
Well, I am not giving up on drop shipping yet! Maybe in an hour though. I am becoming impatient with the whole thing. Stupid me, I thought this was going to be a cake walk.
It also appears that DOBA has some bad press on the Ripoff Report. I hope they don’t try to charge me even if I cancel within my trial period. But so far, other than not finding any products I can profit with, I have had no problems.
Bad business model, company with ripoff reports galore, STAY AWAY!
I did DOBA and they did ME! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO no no no no no no no NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NONO dont do it! I wouldnt do it if they paid me! Now that I KNOW the liars well!
Almost every over priced BIN fixed priced listing you see where the item in New condition in quantities are folks using drop shippers.That makes up the majority of eBay. You won't be able to compete with the numerous other sellers selling the exact same thing with the exact same stock photo.
Also, look up prices from lowest including shipping.
Can you beat out those low ball sellers who ship for free and are selling those same products cheaper then what you are paying for before eBay and PayPal fees. Before you pay doba their fee?
Those sellers own those products and bypass the third party drop shippers.
By buying in bulk or by the crate, they have a huge advantage over you.
Buying directly from the distributor or manufacturer is the only way to compete here and that means buying a huge supply of inventory.
PLEASE! STAY AWAY FROM DOBA! THE FREE TRIAL COSTS $1 ONLY. BUT THEM YOU CANNOT SEE THE PRODUCTS. YOU CALL THEM AND THEY TELL YOU TO PAY $69 IF YOU WANT TO SEE THEM. IF THEY DON'T WANT TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION THEY JUST HANG UP! THE PRICES ARE HIGH. DON'T TRY, YOU'LL REGRET! HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I hope my post here would not annoy anyone as to be frank, I am promoting a drophipping service I founded. It is called letusdropship. Every product is researched and we have a mechanism to make sure reselling is profitable.
Right now we are still in the early phase so we do not have a lot of products, but everything we have is with a reasonable margin. please check us out.
