I'm thinking about drop shipping furniture has anyone on here had success drop shipping or know anyone who has? I have found uk warehouses that can have my order delivered in 3 days forsmall items and up to 10 days for large items.I know products from uk are a little more expensive but I don't see customers waiting 30/40 days from other countries like china

Do you mean drop shipping from amazon to ebay? If you do I don't see this way being that profitable

Yeh I can see it being profitable but I Dunno if there would be enough profit doing that way to make at least 5k a month in profit, also seems like more work has to be put in as you'd have to look for.items that are cheaper on amazon and more expensive on ebay etc. How long has she been running her drop shipping business?

Jamne1 over 3 years now drop shipping is a good business to start up but the only down side is returns for furniture that are you willing to pay the return cost have you checked aliexpress drop shipping they have UK warehouses now and dhgate do worth looking into start small and gradually build it up

Ann1984 the customer will pay the return costs to me and I will keep the furniture that is returned in a garage as the company I have been looking at working alongside only sell to trade buyers and don't accept returns if the customer isn't happy with the appearance of the item, however if it's genuinely broken and can't be fixed with a missing part/spare they will accept a return but if it is fixable by getting the missing part they won't accept a return. So I will try keep my returns as low as possible by offering to send the missing part free of charge if there happens to be any and the ones that ain't damaged and the customer don't like I will store and sell at a discounted rate or in bulk at price I paid for the lot or a small loss or even use them in some future properties.
