    Do any of you have an e-commerce site based on dropshipping? I have a website sitting doing nothing. Wondering if any of you could shoot a quick idea.

    What is the website? I have never tried dropshipping, mainly due to the nightmares that I have heard that are involved. I would rather have the product in hand, this way I can control the customer service. After all it is all about the customer when it comes to making money online.

    I just got a headache when I tried the dropshipping companies found online - too much competition and then I suffered when the product was delayed - so what I did was go to a local store and asked if they would like to do dropshipping and they said yes!

    Also if you go to certain websites or to places like cj.com and linkshare.com - many of them have affiliate programs which is a dropshipping program as well.

    Those are great ideas. Thanks for it.

    Here is another question. I find it very difficult finding what to sell. That seem to be one of the toughest decisions. Usually people sell what they are good at. For me I cant find anything I am good at to sell on a e-commerce site:) Any ideas would be appreciated.

    You are welcome.

    I know that is the tough part - and it IS good to find something you are interested in and can write about.

    There are a lot of niches out there still. Believe me!

    I built an information site with the SiteBuildIt program and even though it is an info site, I can sell anything I want on it now that I am getting more traffic to it.

    And I don't really want to give away any of my niches here but my SBI site is on survival... at first I didn't know if I could really write on it but now it all comes pretty naturally.:)

    Try focalprice.com, it's cheap and you will never pay them anything to start!
