Who is a good and real dropshipping company?
Hi, been redundant for some time so just need advice and guidance from experienced people as I am totally new to this business, was about to join dropshipland or theselect.co.uk but then read some bad reviews about them, so decided to put them on hold and reserach again, and came across this forum which I believe is the right place for the kind of advice i am after.
Basically am looking for some good/profitable/reliable dropshipping company, I only want to sell the products on ebay/amazon
I am not greedy kind of person who wants to make like thousands in months, just wanna support my family with few hunders pound/month,
so could any please help me and give me some advice.
Thanks, I am new to this forum plz forgive me if had made any mistake

Hi and Welcome to Wholesale Forum
Yes unfortunately most of the drop shippers found on search engines are a waste of time, or outright scams. The main reason is that they are overused and overpriced. The Internet moves so quickly that, if it was that simple to find a drop shipper that offered a real business in a box, the opportunity would quickly disappear (because the more people adopt it, the lower the margins - that is IF there were any margins to start with). This is basic business economics. The rule you should keep in mind is that the more a drop shipper is popular, the lower your potential of making any money from them.
Drop shipping, by its very nature, puts you at a disadvantage vs those resellers who are able to buy directly from wholesalers/distributors/manufacturers, at real trade prices. Even to make just $200 per month using drop shipping, you would need to think of a very unique approach that can make your profit sustainable over time (you don't want to make $200 just for a month; similarly, you don't want to spend $300 in marketing to make $200 in gross profit). And that means focusing on a niche, and dominating it from multiple angles, including using blogs, forums, article marketing, social media, email marketing, viral marketing and so on to direct as many interested buyers to your website and eBay store.
You should read Zero to Hero - How a home based start up generated over £3 millions in just one year, it will give you the right perspective into drop shipping, and how to approach it to make it work as a business.

There are many companies, and there are many scams, for now my recomendation are:;
1. Use always Paypal, any company can to say that is 3 o 4 years, they can to show you paper (certificate), they can to say that Wester Union is safe (it is false), they have to accept paypal, if they have a paypal's pic, it is not enought, they have to be certificate, clik on image and if not open an address "https" (http is common but https has an "s" at the end s=safe), it is because it is false.
2. Use website where you can to see if they have feedback
3. Look the price, if it is very cheap, very, very cheap, it is false, or, if they want to give you free products,
4. Talk about your system, ¿how are they working? ¿how many day? about shipment,
5. In United State there is good if the web site have "BBB" Better Business Burea, but it is good within the U.S.
6. The web site have to have address, thelephone, skype, msn, certificate, but remmeber, now it is easy to get all that (even a phone number from another city
