Dropshipaccess.com is one of the best drop shipping sites to be found on the web. What stands out about it is a massive range of products, many from named brands, a simple membership structure with all you need to sell on eBay or your own website, and easy sign up with immediate access. However, it does lack the odd feature to be found on other sites, e.g. ecommerce website setup and enhancement services.
Dropshipaccess.com features a clear and user-friendly website through which it's easy to control all aspects of your membership. Browsing the product catalog, at the time of this review there were 1,702,536 different items from 357 suppliers for sale. It's great that such a large range of products from hundreds of suppliers can be found in one place. Unfortunately you can't see product prices without registering first. As a guide, expect to find goods at 30-70% cheaper than the manufacturer's retail price, which can mean a great deal for the profitability of your business. Intriguingly, whilst they offer a lowest price guarantee, no detail was found on the site explaining what was meant by this. There's no commission on products per se; however, you pay a 3.5% credit card processing fee, plus the shipping fee (which can be found in the product specifications). You can browse products from 12 principal categories, which spilt into sub-categories. Categories include 'business & industrial', 'camera & photo' and 'electronics'. However, at the time of this review the largest selection of products could be found in the categories ''clothing & shoes' (2371 products), health & beauty' (13,075) and 'sporting goods' (9,249). Clicking on a product thumbnail connects you to more detailed item information including a detailed description, retail price, wholesale price, weight, dimensions, brand, shipping details and a full description.
There may be a problem drop shipping to some countries, depending on the supplier. There's shipping across the USA, Canada, UK and Australia, but if you want to ship elsewhere you may need to have a delivery shipped to you and then sent to your customer, which will obviously incur extra expenses. As mentioned above, shipping details and fees are listed in the product details. If a product has to be returned, Dropshipaccess.com will deal with it, saving you the hassle and allowing you to concentrate on sales.
With reference to membership options, it's nice to see a simple structure with just a couple of choices. The Advanced Membership is designed for selling on eBay. For $295.00 you get lifetime wholesale product access to over 1,500,000 brand name products at low prices with no minimum order quantity. You also get an eBay listing service that allows you to push products directly to eBay in a few clicks, with stock notifications and allowing you to transfer customer details to order forms without having to retype details. You also get Premium Education features such as a newsletter with drop shipping tips and techniques, access to videos to hone your selling strategies and comprehensive business guides to help grow your business.
The Enterprise Membership is designed for use by those with their own selling website and sellers dealing in larger volumes. Again, for a great price (695.00) you get lifetime membership and plenty of great features. In addition to the benefits enjoyed by Advanced Members, you get improved website integration, which helps streamline your online sales management. For example, you get instant data feed access direct to your site, which allows you to quickly and easily upload products to your webstore, up to the minute stock levels and new product details so you can be amongst the first to offer new items to your customers. This membership is compatible with eBay Prostores, Yahoo Stores, eBay Turbo Lister and 3D Cart. There isn't currently an option to have your own ecommerce website created for you.
It's easy to sign up; just register, select your plan and pay for your membership, then receive immediate access to all your membership features. There's great customer support too. A Drop Ship Success Coach is available to call (Monday-Friday 9.00am-6.00pm EST), email support and plenty of guidance and a FAQs section on the website.
Dropshipaccess.com is a great all rounder, combining ease of use with some powerful features. If you're a serious seller then it may be lacking in features and there's the problem that not all products can be shipped internationally. However, there's no arguing with the range of products, great membership terms and ease of use, that makes this site a real winner.
