      Hi Boxter,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      Whether you use a drop shipper or a wholesale supplier, your business will always be that of retailing and you need to work hard at marketing your business to gradually increase your profits over time. The difference with using a drop shipper instead of a regular wholesale supplier is in the way that your products get shipped to your customers. Instead of holding your own stock, you deal with a drop ship supplier who drop / blind ships the items you sell directly to your customers on your behalf.

      How much you will be earning depends on the type of product and on how you sell that product. If you want to be a successful reseller then the trick is to find a product with a good demand to competition ratio. Your focus should be on finding niche products which are in high demand, but have low competition. The best products you could choose to sell are those products which you are passionate about, this passion will come across to your customers in your product listings and descriptions. If you can bring across that you are specialized in the products you sell, then your customers will reward you with loyalty and return business.

      Read the following threads to learn more about niche markets:

      - https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...at-sell-11574/
      - https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...products-1437/

      There are many suppliers on the internet who aggressively promote their drop ship services, but most of these drop shippers are just middlemen who will lock you to high prices for slow selling products. The fact that they turn up in the first results on Google is because of aggressive SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for keywords and not because they are reliable suppliers. Have a look at the following threads to read more about the risks of drop shipping and drop ship middlemen:

      - https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...p-shipper-126/
      - https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...es-pitch-1436/
      - https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...-sources-1467/

      If you want to find verified drop ship suppliers to profit from and that are safe to deal with, we recommend to use the three largest online trade directories of verified wholesale suppliers eSources, Wholesale Deals and Worldwide Brands. All three list thousands of verified wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and drop shippers.

      From the following links you can get more information about finding and verifying drop ship suppliers:
