All of the positive reviews on here are from the sole "owner" himself who is not hiding and not responding to my emails or calls who needs to go bankrupt for all the fraudulent claims he puts in his business . I believe in karma and he will get his . Ask me any question I will tell you the truth . It was the worst year of my life .

80 percent of their products and **bleep** and customers will return them . You will be out a lot of money plus they will never respond to your emails . It's the truth... I am thinking about suing them

TOTALLY LEGIT and awesome business in California with over 32,000 satisfied customers nationwide, andstill init'sfirst year of existence!!!

Don't pay attention to the "nay-sayers" with their lack of investigative skills.

It is a scam!!! It sounds like this job the emailed me. I was looking for work and received a email saying they found my resume on a job board. I know I did not send them my resume or email, but it seemed legit anyway. I filled out a application and everything and the website seemed legit too. Plus I didnt see any scam alerts for them. I think they change their names over and over again when people catch on. They told me I was to get $30 a package, then packages started rolling in. Even the database they gave me to record everything in seems legit. It all seemed very professional. At the end of the month when I was suppose to get paid ($510) and I didnt receive it, I started sending them messages. When I use to send them messages they would always respond, but then when I started asking them about my pay, They never returned my phone calls, messages or anything. They even locked me out the database, I could no longer use my password. They even took the website down. DONT DO IT!! ITS A SCAM. YOU WILL BE DOING ALOT OF RUNNING AROUND FOR NOTHING AND THEN YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET IN CONTACT WITH THEM EVER AGAIN.

Re: Drop shipping... Legit or Scam?

It's a good idea to make sure you have a willing partnership with the company you plan to drop ship for. Going to a company's site and inputting your billing information, and your eBay buyer's shipping information, without ever physically possessing the item yourself is a very blatant violation of eBay terms, since you are sharing your buyer's information with a third party.

 

Not only this, but the business may notice what you're doing and start notifying those ship-to customers of the true cost and the fact that their information has been shared. 

 

Just do business in an integral way and you will have nothing to worry about.

Your best shot is to find true wholesalers. Some will drop ship for you, however, the legit wholesalers NEVER charge a fee for "joing" often times these are MIDDLEMEN.


 


 Legit wholesalers will also ask for a sellers resale permit, tax id and in some cases business license before selling to you.

My Drop shipping company has worked fairly well for me so far. I have only been an ebay member for 2 months and I'm still trying to get the hang of it but i have made approx $500 profit on my few sales. The compition on ebay is alot higher than I suspected but I find I can still sale items for more than what people list the same items on ebay. A good description and customer service goes along way. My advice for drop shipping is research the item you want to sale and cross reference through ebay, the internet, and don't expect to sell an item everytime you list it.

Knowledge is Power!

drop-shipping really does not work on the internet,whatever anyone says.Unless you have the buying power of a chain like wal-mart,you can't make a real profit.Do not resort to drop-shipping because you will be sorry in the end.

wholesale_vending_products -- yes, but you also sell on eBay. So you are competing with your customers!

There are many dropshipper service out there and its luck to find the right one, best thing is not to pay by PayPal or anything else, only pay with credit card because they have a fraud protection.

Drop shipping... Legit or Scam?

in reply to toddceleste
I have found the same problems with drop shippers. There are 1,000 of the same products being sold on E-bay, same price, same item, same picture. When you list your's you are just adding one more to the list.I finally closed my store because it was costing me more than I was making. You have to have a unique item to be able to make any money. I used many drop shippers and wholesaler's and had very few problems, but again everyone is selling the same thing. If they don't charge a set up fee those are the one's that everybody is using.

If you are paying a fee, they are not a legit dropshipper. Not to mention ebay has 1000s of the same item and the competition is fierce. Good luck if it works for you.

Hey yall, i have used dropshipping before and now still do so, i just started an online store a couple months ago, and i have had a couple sales, still waiting on the search engines to place me. but stay away from this one, i used them in the past, they are high, i only sold one t6 trikke from them. other supplier i now use are megagoods.com.. i have had great raves bout the products. great tasting gourmet coffee. the thing is before you sign up with any dropshipper is see if they are on bbb.com if they have atleast c or better, they are in good standing with the bbb. the rest of my suppliers are free, with a very low dropshipping free.... ALWAYS RESEARCH THE DROP SHIPPER BEFORE SIGNING UP
