    I personally don't have a problem with people beating prices. The same thing happens in the web hosting industry. You have kids massively overselling their web space (offering Unlimited bandwidth packages). You shouldn't even bother trying to beat them in price. However, it is very likely your marketing budget is higher if you are trying to run a legitimate business, and you should rely on your customer service and support. In the long run... you'll still be in business and he'll be gone from the industry or starting his company over again.

    The supply and demand principle still rules. The more competitors, the more prices drop, the less you make. Having an incentive even if your prices are slightly higher can make it a success for you. Whether it is better support or free software, etc..

    I agree. Supply and demand rules. If people don't like that, they shouldn't be in a free market.

    On the "Search for Wholesalers" topic: We are NOT (read again NOT) a wholesaler. And it IS hard to locate them. You need to search off the Internet to find the good ones. We have been asked repeatedly to share our list. As a result, we offer a consolidated wholesaler feed in one nice package. We offer this as a service via a daily excel file that we email to our members every morning with description, prices, and inventory amounts. We then offer to manage ordering and fulfillment through automation. Since most people looking for this are starting out / small - we only ask for a revenue share arrangement rather than any money up-front. In my opinion, don't pay up-front for this stuff. Too much crap out there.

    Our view is that you can still add-value by being the middle-man if you help the next guy on the supply chain with tools (such as automation, information, access, etc).

    We've had the best success by finding drop-shippers who are not in a directory or into the drop-shipping business in a major sort of way. It always helps to have things that are unique in our online log furniture store (logcabinrustic.com), and if you go with the mass market drop-shippers you can run into a lot of cutthroat competition. We do sell some log furniture that is widely available elsewhere on the Internet, and succeed by offering a combination of rock-bottom prices and excellent customer service. But there's not a lot of room for negotiation on such products, as the margins can be quite thin.

    Hello I visited the above website www.interdropship.com and was directed to a Car website.

    Hence is this thread a scam or spam for driving traffic. How can anyone on this Forum take anything as being credible
