Need to place an order as if it were a drop shipped item, then see what they do.

Should have done that before to be honest, see how quick they ship etc, and for that very reason make sure no invoices are put in.

100% true, they are the reason my first account was suspended, to many customers complained about long postage times, although aside from that they were very help full with replacing faulty products.

Drop shipping is the death of any account for many reasons........

-Extremely slow shipping

-Products not always the EXACT same as pictures (color, material, etc.)

-Packaging from China will lead to complaints (also invoices in Chinese, lettering, etc)

-Items not always in stock

-If you dont have the item in hand, dont sell it

-In the end, why place your account and business on someone else. Do it right, do it yourself.

Very nice post,dropshipping is top diffcult now,i want to add a few more reasons besides the list above:
1 price is high
2 quality is not guaranteed,as you can not see the items first.

Having no control of something freaks me out.

All those products look super played out on ebay or any other selling site, unless you plan to sell these at some flea-market or other venue they don't look that great.
