                                            Seven Steps to start dropship business
                                                             By Syed Rizvi

   The popularity of eBay has inspired many people to start a business. And for those entrepreneurs
who don't want to invest in a ton of inventory but still want to set up shop, dropshipping is a logical
There are seven steps involved in starting a dropship e-business:

Step 1:Choose a product to sell. The very first step in any sales process is deciding what product to
sell. Many factors should be considered before you make the decision, but for now, let's say that
you've decided to sell iPod Accessories on eBay or on your own website.

Step 2: Locate a supplier who will dropship for you. Using a research tool like Google, or an industry-specific resource like , you can search for and
find a company that will dropship iPod Accessories for you. If the company offers you a 30 percent
markup over cost, which means that it will supply the iPod Accessories to you for $100 each, then you
should be able to retail them for $130 a piece. Make sure the dropshipper has a good stock of iPod
Accessories on hand so you don't end up selling a product that must be back-ordered.

Step 3:Set up an account with the dropshipper. Now it's time to set up a reseller account with the
company that will supply the iPod Accessories or offering a free website with ccomplet product online
catalog. This can often be done online or by phone, but some companies will require that you complete
and return a reseller application to open an account. Some may also require a tax ID and a business

Step 4:Advertise the product for sale on eBay on your free website. Now that you have your supplier
lined up and you know that the product is in stock, it's time to make a sale. That means it's time to
advertise the product using an eBay auction. Since you know what you must pay the dropshipper for
the product, you also know what minimum amount you will take for the product. In this case, you could
start your auction at $100, since that is your cost. If you are confident that you can get more than $100
for the product, you can start with a lower price, but remember that if the product goes for less than
what it costs you to fill the order, you will lose money. Also remember that the dropshipper will charge
shipping, so make sure to figure that into your sale.

Step 5:The product sells. Great news—your iPod Accessories has sold for $130, and your customer

pays you with a PayPal instant payment. I highly recommend that entrepreneurs use PayPal or some
other online processor to accept instant payments. This allows the customer to pay you faster, which
lets you place the order with the dropshipper faster, which gets the product to your customer faster.

Step 6:Place the order with the dropshipper. Once your customer pays you, you should contact the
dropshipper immediately to order the product on your customer's behalf. The dropshipper then ships
the order to your customer under your company name and address.

Step 7:Follow up after the sale. This is where many new e-business entrepreneurs drop the ball. Just
because your customer has paid you and you've placed the order with the dropshipper, does not mean
that you are out of the loop. Quite the contrary: If there are problems with the order, you are the one
that will be held responsible in the eyes of your customer.

It's best to be proactive in your customer relations. Follow up with customers to let them know when a
specific item has been shipped. Offer yourself as the personal contact for any issues that may arise.
This is also a great way to sell customers more products. Invite them to check out your eBay store or
Web site, if you have one.

Many people are afraid to use dropshipping as a method of sales due to the horror stories that fill the
Internet about unscrupulous dropshippers who take the money and don't fill the orders, merchandise
that is eternally back-ordered, unscrupulous middlemen posing as dropshippers and so on. Make no
mistake, the dropshipping industry—like most other industries—does have its share of shady
characters who would rob you blind given the chance, but there are also hundreds of honest
dropshippers who can help you build a profitable eBay dropship business.

                             Why is Communication With Dropship Suppliers so Vital?
                                                           By Matthew Bredel

Dropship suppliers can literally make or break your online business. Whether you are an eBay seller or
have an independent online marketplace, your business can flop if you are working with a greedy or
faulty dropshipper or wholesaler. The problem is that these illegitimate dropshippers are wide-spread
on the Web, so it can be challenging to find the right ones to supply your business.

Making sure you have direct communication with your suppliers—not a middleman—is an important
way to ensure you are dealing with a dropshipper who can help and not harm your business.

• Is your dropshipper available for important discussions about your business relationship?

 • Can you easily access your dropship supplier when you have a question about the service or

• Is your dropshipper willing to work with you to find the right products for your unique business?

 Each of these questions is important to consider as you choose the dropship supplier for your

 The reason you want to avoid dealing with a middleman dropship supplier can be related to the
popular children’s telephone game. You know, when you start a whispered message at the beginning
of the line and by the end of the line the message is distorted? Well, with a middleman dropship
supplier it is likely you will receive not only distorted communications but it is also likely to find yourself
with less than quality products and services, potentially hindering your business success.

 When you have the opportunity to communicate openly with your supplier, you can get the answers
you need to help you make the right product decisions. If you don’t have this opportunity, or you realize
it is going to be difficult to communicate directly with your supplier, this is a red flag and you should
know to move on to a more accessible dropship supplier.
