So as stated above, I have made my first sale. However, my supplier has been less than helpful as far as instructing me on anything having to do with profit margins, what to do when I make a sale, etc. Soooo...when I make a sale, do I just send them the money and the shipping info, and they take it from there? They haven't even told me what my profit margin will me. Feeling a little frustrated and at a loss here...

    Hi there !
    First of all, congrats on your first sale, I have no idea about what your supplier is, but you have to buy the item from him and enter the information of your customer (name, address ...) and get the tracking number and give it to the customer.
    And in the phase of buying the item, don't forget to tell the supplier to do not include any invoice or any informations, send it as a gift.

    Usually, you will get a list of your wholesale prices, shipping policies, return policies, etc. long BEFORE you ever list their products on your site.

    At this point, sent them your order and contact them to find out how they want to be paid. At the same time, get the answers to the above things!

      They did send a catalog and all the other information, but some items in the catalog are completely missing from the wholesale price list, or vice versa, or the item number in the catalog says the item is one thing, but in the wholesale price list it's listed as something completely different (ie: catalog says it's a cast iron skillet and wholesale price list says it's a spatula).
      Thanks for your reply, this is very helpful info.

        If things like that happen, let them know right away. It would really be bad if your site listed something that was different than what the customer actually receives. If prices are missing, ask what they are.

    Can anybody help me? I am not getting my first sale from last 45 days. I am using Google Adwords for Advertising my products and getting a lot of targeting user from Adwords. But it is very pain full for me because nobody add to cart any product on my store. they just click and read the info and reviews then off the website. Averagely 15 to 20 seconds a user stay on my store. My niche is hiking and camping gears. Please guide me.

    The approach in drophip works like this .
    You find a supplier with give you factory prices and you 3-4x your prices and make a good profit out of it.
    When you are selling on your website , you can quote any price and the difference is your profit.
