Finding reliable drop shippers - Registration Fee to get a drop ship supplier
I have been searching for a reliable drop shipper for a while now and came across Wholesale Forum.
One of the advices I found on Wholesale Forum is to be aware of those drop shippers who charge fees for their memberships.
I have followed the links provided eg , they all have a hefty amount of money you need to pay for their services.
Is this information contradicting or am I the only one who doesn't understand which fees are normally charged by drop shippers.
Its been a bit disappointing and a long endless journey. I really need to get my on line business started, mostly selling through eBay for a start before I establish my own website.
Please help with ideas, I would appreciate it.
Thank you all.Want To Be An eBay Powerseller?This is the Service You Need.

Welcome to Wholesale Forum
The information you have read about drop shippers, and not having to pay fees to make use of their services, is correct. We do not recommend using drop shippers that require an upfront payment because they are virtually all just middlemen. They will take unnecessary fees from you, and lock you to high prices, products that don't sell, and little to no profits.
eSources (80,000 Global suppliers), Worldwide Brands (8,000 US, Chinese and Hong Kong suppliers) and Wholesale Deals (50,000 UK suppliers) actually list verified wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and drop ship suppliers. Legal trading entities selling authentic, fast selling and legally complying merchandise. They are all long established services dedicated to helping new businesses start on the right foot and earning a profit.
Have a look at the following thread about finding wholesale suppliers and drop shippers, it will give you more information about these trade directories and show feedback from their members:
A lot of effort goes into verifying suppliers, that is why these directories ask you to subscribe. They can give you a competitive advantage when it comes to sourcing authentic and in demand products. Finding a reliable supplier can take months, sometimes never. This why these three services are extremely useful.
If you are interested, you can post a new request for drop shippers of specific products in our Dropshipping Discussion category, we shall then do our best to recommend verified drop shippers of those products and provide results from the directories mentioned above.
