I think it would be a great idea to creat a legit, useful dropshippers directory just for use of ECT template owners. This would be useful for the average joe to start a website and have the resources at their fingertips to start selling. Hell, it took me 3 months after I got my site up to make a penny. It took another 8 months to make rent! If I could have saved myself a years work of searching and testing for quality dropshippers, I would be way ahead of the game.

If anyone wants to compile a list, lets do so! Let's compile lists of equitable hosts, dropshippers & so forth.

One more note before I crash, Beware if all those dropshipping dropshippers. Basically, guys like you and me open up a website. They find a dropshipper, tack on more money, then claim they are the dropshipper. Some will even post images of their warehouse!! Too bad I decided to visit and request a walkthrough (I figured in a 2 bedroom apartment, theres gotta be a warehouse in here... :) ) .

Just be careful, you may have a lot going for you, a clean website, capital, the time invested and them bam, your done for because now your name is bad to those customers, who intern will let their friends know.

Yes, I'm a starter and need that source of dropshipper. I bought the source from Worldwidebrands.com. So far I found nothing there. There is a huge number of companies doing drop shipment. I could contact to few of them and got their catalogs. I was surprised. Their prices are heigher than prices on EBay. So how can I make money with them?
I did not check all of companies listed there just due to big number.

There are already many sites with huge lists of dropshippers (search Google), and I would imagine forums devoted to them exist too... wouldn't another list just be sort of reinventing the wheel?

I don't know... while I don't want anyone to spill the beans on their source for products and create a competitor, a good reference to a directory or site would be nice.

Search google and you find a bunch of single page sites promising you the greatest directory of drop shippers for $49 US through PayPal only (save $10 if you order today!).

I checked out Worldwidebrands.com, nothing good honestly. I have about 5 of the largest distributors that do drop ship, and their not on worldwidebrands. Two of them are actually competing for "The Best Distributors in America".

Doesn't make sense, how this powerseller who claims to have the magic list... doesn't. Yeah there are some decent dropshippers in that list, but nothing worth paying for.

This maybe should not be here because the site does not use ecommercetemplates but I have had good reports about the site (from a personal friend) and the service from them, hence the post. Site is http://www.mydropshipbusiness.com

Does anyone know any good UK dropshippers they are willing to share their knowledge of?

Just discovered a link while doing research on my lunch break, and I think it might be of interest in this thread.

http://ripoffreport.com/

for example, put either:

smc
-- or
netdropshipper

in the searchbox and see what revealing info comes up. Wish I had known about this site earlier.

I hope this is useful... I dislike seeing people ripped off, whether business owners or consumers.

Regards,
ksp (work id, the above post has nothing to do with the links in the signature below by the way)

hi ksp,

Thanks for the website. I typed in Get E Store. Sure enough, I am not the only one get ripped off.

Be careful with the site, I paid $100 for nothing. Very expensive stuff.

Okay guys, sorry for the delay. I have compiled a list of dropshippers that actually do work. The reason is I have physically tested them with three orders each. If anyone else has any other dropshippers or even just huge distributors, let me know.

+Update:

My goal with this project is to eliminate the junk drop shippers and really get down to some quality distributors & fulfillment companies.

I have currently visited 5 "dropshippers" that immedialtly failed my test when I realized the suite # was actually an apartment #!! :) I have successfully visited with 4 major & to decent dropshippers, which will be revealed when I am finished with my journey.

What I am asking of you guys is to *confidentially* send me your lists of drop shippers. If you stumble across a drop shipper that claims to do everything, let me know... I'll physically check them out (time permitting)!!

Finding the source would stop this problem in it's tracks.

anathema: Not sure at this moment. I may just have it for request only. Being that a list like this is not good for competitive business, I also feel people have a right to source distributors & dropshippers easier.

I understand. It is more of a curiosity with me. I have never used a drop shipper and have no real plans on doing so.
