using wholesalers and dropshippers in your online business
What is a Dropshipper and How Can They Help Your Online Business?
You can use dropshipping to help your internet business or to help with start up costs of a new business. Your relationship with a good dropshipper can be the one thing that makes your business successful, especially if you are to get wholesale lots from your drop shipper.
You can find dropshippers for almost any type of products. Whether you’re looking for wholesale DVDs, wholesale computer parts, or something completely unrelated to electronics, there’s probably a drop shipper that you can work with.
There are lots of costs involved in starting a business, especially if you are opening a store. Opening an online store can save you money and time when it comes to a business. Using a drop shipper when you’re starting out can save you lots more time. You can start up an online store pretty easily. If you don’t want to pay for a website and a host, you can even go to eBay and open an eBay Store.
Your Online Store – Open for Business
Some of the costs incurred from a store, even an internet store, come from your product. You have to purchase your product from a wholesaler and when a customer buys it, you have to pay to ship it to them. Drop shipping can help you with this because you do not have to ever have the product in your possession. You will work with the wholesale dropshipper and when someone orders from you, you have them send it directly to the buyer’s address.
Drop shipping will save you money, time and space in your house or office. Your customers will get their product quicker and you do not have to buy large quantities of product that you will be stuck with if you don’t sell.
If you’re selling on eBay dropshippers can be very effective. You won’t have to stock your products so if an auction doesn’t sell, you’re only out the listing fees. Again, you won’t be stuck with a product that doesn’t sell.

Insurance is usually a good idea but in general, it should be an optional feature, with the decision left to the buyer. Remember two important things about insurance. First, insurance is VERY inexpensive. Therefore, in your description, you should state how much insurance would cost and recommend it. Second, you should also state in the description that if insurance is not purchased, you are not responsible for lost or damaged items.
