      Greetings from Michael - Starting a UK business using drop shipping and eBay

      Hi to all @ WHolesaleForum,

      I found this site while Googling business research, drop-shipping and sourcing etc. I browsed a few threads and found some informative guides/threads.

      This seems like a really helpful community of like minded people and friendly and I hope to gain further business knowledge here.

      Initially I am looking into starting an eBay business and building up to an eCommerce site. Trying to figure out a decent niche first though.

      Many thanks.

      Michael

      Hi Michael,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      Drop shipping is, on paper, a simple and guaranteed selling method. In reality, its simplicity makes it accessible to many more people than when sourcing in bulk. Some people will try to persuade you that, as long as you pay a fee, you will get a magical website that sells products on its own. In other cases, prices on offer will be too high to compete online or to cover the increasing costs of online marketing.

      Drop shipping is not an out of the box method as some would like to make you believe.

      If you want to take advantage of the 2011 Christams rush, the quickest way is to head over to Wholesale Deals UK - Wholesalers, Dropshippers, Importers & Distributors Database | Home | and start sourcing products at competitive prices even for eBay's standards. Some are drop shipped products, all will make money either on eBay UK or Amazon UK.

      Once you have more time at hand to organize your business, we recommend reading in more depth the threads at Dropship Forum - Drop Ship Suppliers, Dropshipping and Dropshippers Discussions & Reviews - Wholesale Forum for insights into drop shipping, how to avoid the most common scams, and how to plan your strategy in order to increase your chances of success.

      For now we wish you well with your start, and remember it will be a long, challenging but also rewarding path which may bring you to all corners of the world.
