    Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article with us .Loved your platform and liked the name very much.And I love the videos they have on this website because I can watch them here.In the first place, these videos will help me a lot.And one of the things I found most important was that no scanner was allowed on this platform.And in this world everyone is involved with Islam so it is very difficult to find such honest and decent online companies at the present time and I love seeing your company.

    It delights me that this platform is devoid of scammers and that is a welcomed addition always. Being the fact that anyone can always benefit from it so far there is a knowledge on how drop shipping works. But I wish to seek more into how salehoo really works. Is there a particular way that scammers are detected and removed? Also, does it include any free trial offer?

    Hi Marvin!

    Dropshipping is a model for many people making money online. Honestly, I didn’t understand, so far, why people would want to buy various products through other people instead of from the vendors, but after thinking more deeply it is a great way to find a specific product, between so many available these days.

    The problem I see when starting dropshipping is to find the real vendor and great product with great support and delivery terms.

    Having somebody like Salehoo on your side when trying to figure it out who to work with, especially when starting dropshipping is a great help. I heard for the first time about Salehoo through your article.

    If I decide once to start with dropshipping, I will definitely consider Salehoo. It seems to be a great place to sort out reliable and serious suppliers.

    Thanks for sharing such a tip.

    Best regards,
    Igor

    My greatest worry about drop shipping has always been that the supplier will run out of the products that I need. It is good to know that this company has excellent suppliers and that they are not scammers. It’s great that they have a training program and the cost is certainly reasonable.  I would definitely like to learn more.

    Drop shipping is something that I have been toying with for quite a while. I do plenty of selling on EBay and on numerous occasions it has occured to me that I could go direct to some of the suppliers. Cutting out the ‘middle man’ is also a very cost effective way forward.

    Although drop shipping would be a slightly different take on what I had in mind. Many of the overseas products are less expensive but people tend not to use them becasue of the delay in shipping. I’m quite happy to sit it out and wait, certainly if it means that the price is considerably cheaper. 

    Rather than using the platform in the traditional sense, do you think it would work if I was to deal direct with the suppliers and actually hold stock of certain items ? I’m just thinking that if all the suppliers have already been ‘vetted’ then that saves me the hassle of trying each one out and going into it ‘blind’, so to speak.

    Your article has motivated me to seriously consider drop shipping and I enjoyed your review of Salehoo. Thank you for explaining what drop shipping is! I’ve heard it mentioned so many times but now I have a clearer picture of what it is. I also like Wealthy Affiliate as it is even easier than drop shipping to get started. Combining Zero Up with Salehoo will enable me to have all the training and the products to make the drop shipping model work for me.

    You have really given a great picture of drop shipping. I’ve long been interested in this form of marketing and every question I had you answered in a way that was very informative. I thank you for this. Your review and adding others was a great way to let others know opinions on the product. Great selling point. Artwork was nice and fit your article well. If anything I may not have used as many opinions as you did. Other than that I felt it was a very informative, and intelligent article. Thank you.

    Marvin, this is a good explanation of what we need to run a drop shipping business successfully. I have read about it before but never really got into it because I felt that it would be open to scammers and I didn’t have a good enough idea of what to sell. Thank you for the introduction to Salehoo. The price is affordable for all the work that is already done for you. I will be looking at this a little more closely. I am just wondering if they have any statistics on the number of dissatisfied customers ??

    Very Good site with an awful lot of information. I think you could benefit with Bold highlights of the key points througout all of your Posts. Just yesterday someone said to me, he liked my website highlights because he was not a reader.  I did independent drop shipping from 1988 – 2005 providing repair parts for machines. In that business value was graded on Correct Part, Delivery (mostly overnight) Quality of part & Cost, so it was different than what you are doing. I believe the highlighting is important for the non reader type but also for the reader seeing the BOLD is like a sledgehammer every time the bold appears reinforcing that feature of the product. Looks good, best to you.
