shipping business is running out of stock.
Also, keep in mind that other sellers like you may use the same drop shipper - and possibly undercut you on price! You'll need to relinquish some control over your business, and pay extra-close
attention to shipping costs, particularly when you offer products from multiple drop shippers. Finally, if there's an order problem, since it's coming from your storefront, you'll need to be prepared

In our guide we were careful to make sure we communicated that dropshipping is not a magic bullet and like most things it requires a lot of due diligence to make it work. To some people these
downsides or risks will not be a problem, but to other people they are, which is why many people do not decide to drop ship. If an item is undelivered then you are the one who has to refund the
customer, even though you have paid the drop shipping company. So go to eBay Pulse and find the lingerie category and see what people are looking for.
