Some dropshippers for ebay and amazon sellers.I’ve assembled a list of prospective dropshippers for eBay and Amazon sellers. Each has a short description followed by links to online reviews (when available). In the last line I list the company’s status with the Better Business Bureau. An “NR” means the BBB has no rating for that dropshipper yet. Remember that having a few complaints is normal. After all eBay itself has thousands of complaints. Actually read the complaints and judge for yourself. I am not affiliated with or sponsored by any of the vendors on this list.

If you’re new to dropshipping there are some things you need to know first before you can properly evaluate which of these companies are the best dropshippers for you.

  1. Dropshipping is a convenience business and is therefore not high profit. You have to sell high volume to make a lot of money.
  2. Even though other people do the shipping for you the setup and customer service will take a lot of time and hard work.
  3. You will still need to have enough money on hand to cover customer returns. A good dropshipping partner will reimburse you but processing returns takes time and your customers will not wait.
  4. A company that holds physical stock is better than one that is an affiliate seller. Depending on one company is better than depending on two or more. Ask them which they are!
  5. Before you spend any money always get a price list and verify that you can get products at a price low enough to make a profit.
  6. If the dropshipper charges a setup fee or monthly membership fee make sure it is for a service or software that is valuable to you. Don’t just pay blindly for the privilege to order from them.
