I'm currently working on a content site but also am gearing up for an ecommerce site that I've been brainstorming about for a couple of months now. Trying to keep my overhead to a bare minimum and so I'm exploring drop shipping. It seems like this is a somewhat touchy subject. I've read accounts of people who have been seriously burned by drop shippers. I used one years ago and made a few bucks at it but didn't have the time or energy to put into it at that point.
So, what does everyone think about drop shipping products? I have noticed when I search for drop shippers I almost always end up at one of those directory sites that want you to pay to get their list of suppliers and wholesalers. This is a red flag to me, if a company wants to legitimately drop ship, they're going to make themselves visible to the people looking for them. I have found a few companies that look promising.
Also, I'd like to set this up using wordpress and give it a similar look and feel to that famous lingerie site by Victoria that I can't post a link too cause I have too few posts...hehe - KISS (keep it simple stupid) Thoughts? Suggestions? Criticisms?
