Great points, Daniel. Maybe finding a reliable company that offers a dropshipping program would take some of that risk away but I'm sure they also have razor-thin margins.

@DanielB That's excellent advice. And what you mentioned about the drawback of dropshipping is something I think a lot of novices easily overlook, until they find out later when they have angry customers and bad reviews. I guess it could work, but that's a pretty big risk without any personal control over good. Good insight!

@JoshuaRichards I'm personally not a fan. The biggest downside I've seen with it is you have zero control over whether or not the product is shipped or arrives on time. The quality of the product that is sent is also completely out of your control. I have had several people list my products for sale on Reverb.com and Ebay at an inflated price, and then come to Amazon (me) and buy it from me to ship it. On my end, I have no idea the quality of customer service the customer is recieving, or if my brand is being tarnished by someone that I didnt select to represent my company. I guess there could be a certain set of circumstances where it actually is a win/win/win between the customer, retailer, and drop shipper though. My preference is to own the process from start to finish. Start with something small and inexpensive to lower your risk and shipping costs. My first product was a guitar tuner that I buy for $1.37 per unit. It doesn't take up alot of space, is cheap to ship (keep in mind Amazon customers expect free shipping so this is a cost you must eat), and I didn't have to take out a 2nd mortgage to buy 500 of them and test the waters. It's still my best seller to this day.

@DanielB, what are your thoughts on drop shipping as a way to get started in online selling without the cost and risk of getting a bunch of inventory up front? I've heard people who love it and people who hate it.
