Drop Shipping (as such) does not seem to have reached the UK yet! I specialise in high value items and the manufacturers are usually happy to send them direct to my customer. However if items are low value (say under £50..00 ) then they usually dont want to know. May be worth emailing your targetted suppliers to ask if they will send directly to your customers. If you are doing volume I would be surprised if they said no. However if you are selling single low cost items your supplier will probably not dropship as the admin involved will eat into their profit margin.
One day soon we might catch up with Uncle Sam! (Dont hold your breath tho)
I actually have already got one supplier.
Its a Chinese company, with a UK warehouse. So the prices are good for some things, but not for others.
This obviously gets around the problem of long postage, but they are quite limited in what they sell.
So there must be other (Reliable) companies out there that are doing this.
I'm not limited to just Drop Shippers though, any decent Wholesalers/Suppliers out there?
