I was just curious as to other product sourcing methods. Are you mainly dropshipping, buying wholesale and reselling, acting as an intermediary online trader, etc...

I myself try to incorporate all three

Wholesale and reselling. Dropshipping is really not a long term type of deal. You cant trust that they will ship in a timely manner all the time and having to worry about how they package and all the other factors are a hassle.

Mostly wholesale and resale. I tried dropshipping, but it never worked out.

Dropshipping might be work a few years ago,since there are not too much comparators and also the products are latest products.So there are still a little profit can be made if you sell a lot .

But now there is another story for dropshipping.

I would like to give some points as below:

1. buying price: you need to get a higher price for the single item what you buy,it is a big difference for single item and in bulk.
2. shipping cost: single item is more than in bulk a lot
3. comparator:There are lots of people buying the goods in bulk and ship the goods by sea,so you can know the cost is so small and then they can resell the goods at very cheaper price.
4. against ebay or paypal rule: list location is different tracking location

Even doing wholesale,the competition is very big now.And you need to do more searching and more practise.
