5 Tested Ways To Find The Perfect Dropshipper

by Keith Closter

Dropshipping is a very lucrative option. You don't have to make any financial investments. You don't have to secure a warehouse to store your products. You don't even have to worry about your buyer's location and how to ship what you're selling to his doorsteps. Dropshippers will take care of those problems.

All you have to do is to market the dropshipper's products. Sell it for a retail price, with a markup of your choice. Then, once a customer buys what you offered, you'll just simply pay the dropshipper the wholesale price of the product, and he'll take care of the rest, including shipping. There will be no middleman, thus assuring you of maximum profit.

And yes, there's no such thing as a minimum purchase.

The only problem is: how do you find a dropshipper? Many merchants may claim to deliver on the behalf of their affiliates, but once you review their terms and conditions, you'd discover that their services hardly qualify as dropshipping.

Here are some techniques that will surely help you identify the ideal dropshipper:

1) Try product sourcing first. The common mistake of people looking for dropshippers is that they're not concerned about what products they'll sell. This shouldn't be the case. Remember, we cannot sell what we don't believe in. We just can't rely solely on what the dropshipper, if ever we find one, has to offer. We should at least have an idea of what we want to sell. Only then we can narrow down our search and stick with reliable dropshippers.

2) Avoid an agent. The purpose of establishing a direct contact with a dropshipper, aside from the convenience and the win-win situation it entails, is to keep the price as low as possible. An agent, or a middleman, who would offer you means of contacting a dropshipper, would be detrimental to keeping the cost low. Most certainly, the agent would receive a commission from your sales. This would inflate your retail price, making your offers less attractive.

3) Penetrate the circle. People who know about dropshippers operate like a secret fraternity of marketers. Squeezing information out of them would be impossible. Well, almost impossible. Remember the saying "if you can't beat them, join them"? This holds much truth in your search for the perfect dropshipper. Be on the lookout for someone who should know about dropshipping. Perhaps, he could be a dropshipper in disguise himself. Befriend him first before asking for his services. Chances are he'll be the first one who'll open up about his secret.

4) Know where to look. You can't find any leads on dropshippers in an online dating site, that's for sure. Try lurking in online discussion boards, particularly those which are dedicated to Internet Marketing. It would be quite easy to distinguish the people who know what they're talking about from mere loudmouths. Once you've pinpointed these people, send them a friendly private message where you'll ask for help regarding a topic that is not related to dropshipping. Thank them for their time once they reply, and assure them that you'll be there when they would ever need help. You'll be surprised how effective this method is!

5) Try credible online resources. There are indeed online sites that offer comprehensive directories of bona fide dropshippers worldwide. This is an excellent recourse for anyone who wishes to engage such service. There is a downside, however. All, and I do mean ALL, of these reliable resources demand a membership fee. The rates range from $50 to $200. Yes, that's a clear indication of the general interest on dropshipping these days.
