I'm new to the whole wholesale/dropship industry, does ProductSourcing.com look like a scam? Because it seems like one of those things that just get you onto an email list and you don't get anything for it.How a New Online Retailer Made Over 3 million Sales in 1yr With These Sources

doba.com scam - Google Search
It seems that ProductSourcing.com is a way to test Doba's service without paying the Doba fees. Many people say both ProductSourcing.com and Doba.com are NOT profitable options. Also their signup fees seem quite high ($599...).
Our advice is to never pay a drop shipping fee, legitimate drop shippers do not require a joining fee, they are interested in reselling as much of their stock as possible, and they need as many drop ship agents as possible to do that.
Before you pay a drop shipper any fee, do the following first:
1. Obtain a full price list including the amount of stock the drop shipper has available for each product.
2. Ask the drop shipper to confirm that he holds physical stock of all the products he resells.
3. Verify that the drop shipper's prices will allow you to make a profit in your chosen marketplace (eg your website, eBay, Amazon, etc)
4. Ask whether the joining fee will be credited back towards your first drop shipped orders.
5. Research reviews in Google: search for "DropshipperName review" or "DropshipperWebsite review" in google to find out what people think about the drop shipper's service.
6. Request 4 references (2 eBay and 2 websites) to verify that their agents are actually making money.
Hope this helps.Want To Be An eBay Powerseller?This is the Service You Need.
