Just pouring out my thoughts..

 

We have this idea that we are wanting to roll with. I don't want to divulge too much information, as he says lol, but basically we have the idea, but neither of us are very computer savvy. As far as putting up a nice looking website, with purchasing options and all that jazz. We are talking about having a college kid or someone that could help out with that to get the ball rolling.

 

Does anyone have any experience with dropshipping? Our site would have some similarities to this concept.

 

For those of you who have experience with online stores and such I would just love any input or encouragement. :)

 

Thanks for reading.

Could you do an ebay or etsy store? Or a place like etsy that doesnt' have to be handmade items? Silkfair is one


I was off to save the world, but I got distracted by something shiny.

We do some drop shipping.  Anything specific you are looking to know?
