    Drop ship the order goes through you. Basically you take the order you charge the order and then you buy the product from a wholesaler and have it shipped to the person who bought it from you. But the person who bought it has no clue it came from a wholesaler because it has your address etc on it.

    Blindship not sure what that is.

    nevermind I know what blindship is

    You run a website you market it and you sell a product on it. But the product is sold by a 3rd party billed by a 3rd party and shipped by the 3rd party but the shipping label etc makes it seem as if you were the only person the buyer delt with.

    Mikey hit it right on.

    They pretty much coexist. If you go into a dropship style service you will probably want all you packages Blind-dropshipped. This will keep your customers from knowing your vendor. Be sure to use trusted vendors as you will be giving them your customers information.

    Dropshipping type stores usually require you to run and process credit cards and then place orders with your "drop-ship-vendor"

    I know there are a lot of places that purport to sell lists of dropshippers. But is there a good free place to find them?

    I am asking for someone else.

    If you're looking into ingram, you should also open a techdata account, they're competitors. The margins are horrible though, with these distributors.

    Never order online with any of them. Always phone the order in. Phone the order in you don't get charged for shipping and you get the lowest price available.

    Thanks for those. I was hoping to find more manufactures of a different variety of products. It would be nice if there were some kind of registry of drop shippers.

    They're the complainants. I understood it to mean the other guy (respondent) is the one in trouble. I wonder if it was resolved since it started in 2001
    Never argue with an idiot.
    The person watching, may not be able to tell the difference!
