Dropshipping companies are basically wholesale companies that
also drop ship their merchandise and products. They receive individual
orders and payments from retailers and eBay merchants and then
send the product to the customer.
Online retailing websites profit from the benefits of drop shipping
merchandise, but so do eBay sellers. eBay
wholesalers have created highly profitable home businesses
by using dropshipping companies to supply and deliver a wide range
of products. The eBay seller only has to cover the wholesale cost
of the product and the postage costs that the dropshipper will
charge to make a profit. No large initial outlays or expensive
storage costs will have to be paid by the eBay wholesaler, which

or Drop Shipping can be a very rewarding and profitable business
to be in for both the dropshipper, the retailer and the eBay
seller, but like any profitable business there is a lot of hard
work involved. Don't be conned into accepting offers that seem
too good to be true as there are a number of unscrupulous people
