New to drop shipping. Just have a couple questions

Alright, so I am wanting to get more into creating E-Commerce web sites and ofcourse I do not want to worry about stock, shipping, etc. Therefor, Dropshipping is my best option.

I am wanting to create a few different E-Commerce stores targeting different niches of people. I just have a couple questions that I am hoping some of you warriors would be able to help me with the answer.

1. Is a good service to sign up to? Is there any other one like it that allows me to do a search to make sure they have suppliers in my niche before I even join them?

2. I notice that Amazon has some great products at some good prices. I did a search but did not find anything on Amazon regarding this question, unless I am just missing something here. But can I drop ship some of the items that are being sold on Amazon?

3. I use Wordpress with WooCommerce and do not plan to change my platform, atleast not now. What is the best drop ship plugin for Wordpress/WooCommerce that you would recommend?

I know some of these questions may sound like complete newbie questions. But hey, I am a newbie when it comes to drop shipping . I appreciate any input that anyone can contribute.

    I would just like to say, don't get discouraged, as it there is definitely a learning curve to e-commerce and drop shipping. That being said, I have found issues with wordpress and woocommerce over the years that may hurt your sales. The biggest problem, is that users have trouble registering to be a customer. It's not everyone, but there is still a percentage of customers you will lose because of it. I also cannot explain it, but my sales increased when I went to an actual e-commerce system (I mainly use opencart).

    I build and host websites, as well as run and do marketing for e-commerce websites. I have helped many people with a store setup, finding drop shippers, and marketing their products to targeted shoppers. Instead of charging them up front, I work on-going for a small percent of sales.

    Message me if you are interested.

    Thank You,

    There is no dropship plugin per se that I'm aware of for WP and Woo
    Drop shipping is a wide subject.
    On the average starting out, if a few products, you can list them any way you want.
    Larger amounts, you can import them from your drop shipper as a csv file and make any changes you like from there.
    WP and Woo is a good combo for drop shipping.
    Pick your niche and proceed slow till you get it down to a system.

    Well, drop shipping is the best for small entrepreneurs who are just looking towards the eCommerce business. The best thing with drop shipping is you can assign the shipping management system either wholesalers or manufacturers who dispatch the goods directly to their customers. And if I talk about the Amazon related queries, then I think, you need to go with a reputed and well named ecommerce platform, who provide you pre integrated marketing strategy with Amazon or any other multivendor marketplace.
