1. How does dropshipping work?

Dropshipping is the easiest and fastest way to start selling products online. In a nutshell, you basically look for a product you want to sell and create an ad to sell that product. You can sell it on eBay, on Amazon, Google and even from your very own website. When you make a sale, you send the order on to your drop shipper, who in turn sends the product to your customer. The profit that you make is the difference in the price that you charge.

2. Do I need to buy the products before I sell them?

NO. That is the best thing about dropshipping. You only pay for the product once you have sold it and collected a payment for it. This means that you can start selling thousands of products online without even having to buy them in bulk. You do not have to worry about warehousing the products, packaging & shipping, inventory management. All this is taken care for you so you can focus on the selling the products and making and collecting payments from your buyers.

3. Do I need an eBay account to sell on eBay?

YES. Our eBay certified listing tool that comes with the eBay Dropship Package requires that you already have an eBay seller account. This tool will help you create professional looking auctions with a choice of over 240 auction templates. Simply choose the product you want to sell and with a few clicks you can create as many auctions as you want under your own eBay account.

4. Can I sell your products on other websites like Amazon, Google Base, etc?

YES. You can sell the products on any website of your choice. Our Dropship Inventory Package will provide you with a variety of pre-formatted datafeeds files that you can use to import the products of your choice. For example if you wanted to sell produts on Amazon Marketplace, then you would simply download the Amazon datafeed file provided with your Dropship Inventory Membership package for the supplier of your choice. All our feeds are pre-formatted to meet the requirements of several marketplace websites so you don’t have to worry about maintaining the feeds yourself.

5. How do I know how much to charge for shipping?

We will provide you with an estimated shipping cost up front so you will know how much to charge your buyer. This cost cannot be 100% accurate since many suppliers calculate shipping based on the weight and the final shipping destination.

6. How do I know if the item is in stock?

Wholesale2b specialize in providing up to date and accurate product information to all its members. We update our database of products each morning so you are sure to get the most accurate inventory information every day.

7. How often to you add new products?

We add products each and every day so you can easily gain an advantage on the market by knowing that you have access to the latest products to hit the market.

8. How do I know when I sold an item on eBay?

You can monitor your auctions from our certified eBay listing tool. You will see which auctions are Live, Completed and Unsold. eBay will also send you an email once your auction has sold.

9. What do I do after I sell a product on eBay?

Once you sell a product on eBay the first thing you need to do is collect the money from your buyer. Ebay offers many payment options and they are also integrated with PayPal. Then from the auction completed list you simply click on the supplier website link to access the supplier website from where you will place the order using your buyer’s shipping address. Your buyer’s shipping address will already be included in the auction completed list so you don’t have to worry about gathering all this information.

10. How long does it take to ship an order?

This depends on you. Once you sell a product we will tell you which supplier to order the product from so you are in full control of when you want to process your orders. Suppliers are also very quick in processing orders since this is the main core of their business.

11. How can I track my orders?

You will receive an email with the tracking number the same day your order leaves the warehouse. Every supplier that is integrated with wholesale2b has to meet this requirement.

12. I need more products for my website, can i load all your products?

YES. Most shopping carts will have an import option that you can use to load new products to your website. With the Dropship Inventory Package you can create your own datafeed files using the customer datafeed generator tool to meet the requirements of your shopping cart. We also have pre-formatted feeds for OSCommerce website and for Zencart websites.

13. Will you include any invoices in the shipment to my customers?

No. The products are shipped directly to your customer without any mention of our company. This is what we refer to as blind dropshipping.

14. Are there any monthly fees?

YES. We charge our members a flat monthly fee rate, one for each of our dropship packages.

15. I am not sure which plan I need, can you help me decide?

This is very simple. If you want to sell on eBay then you need the eBay Dropship Package. If you want to sell products on any third party websites such as Amazon, Google, Nextag, Shopzilla, etc then you need our Dropship Inventory Package. If you want to load products to your own website then you also need the Dropship Inventory Package.

16. I am not from the USA, can I still signup?

Yes, this is not a problem. Many of our integrated suppliers will support International shipping so you can advertise and sell the products in your own country. Furthermore, you can still resell products in the USA even if you are from a foreign country as long as you advertise the products in the USA.

17. I already work with a dropshipper, can I resell their products with your tools?

Yes this is not a problem. We work with many suppliers that dropship their products so chances are that your supplier is already integrated in our system. If not, then simply contact us and we will be more than happy to integrate your dropshipper into our system.

18. Can you build a website for me?

YES. We can build website for you under the domain name of your choice. We load your website with all the products from your chosen suppliers. We will also apply daily updates to make sure that your site is up to date with new products.
