Dropship Review: Dropship Design

Think about this, what if there was a company built for wholesale dropshippers by the people from the dropshipping industry. What if there was a company built to take into consideration every concern that YOU may have when working with your very own dropshiping business, either from an ebay store or from your very own online store.

Dropshipdesign.com (aka http://www.dropship-business.com/) incorporates consideration such as these into its philosophy in an effort to build a customer Service based on the customer perspective.

“You sell, We ship, You profit!”

With our company, you are guaranteed the type of service you should expect, the type of service you desire.

A lot of promises are made in the “Dropship & Wholesale” industry, but a great deal of the time, they often result in failure and upset customers. At Dropshipdesign.com, we will not make any promise that we cannot keep and we will always be there to provide you with first rate service.

    http://www.dropshipdesign.com is a big rip off! they charge you $130 for yearly membership, if you want to dropship you have to pay extra $70 a year. They say their products wholesale but its not more like a retail for those reseller! Their wholesale prices are outrages, you can’t even sell it on ebay. I wouldn’t go to them. It is a big rip off. If you try it you will regret it! don’t let their webpage advertising fool you!

    I bought the one year website drop ship plan from them in Aug 2008 for $149.99. A few days ago I noticed my site was “missing” from the internet. I contacted DSD (Dropship Design) and was told because I did not accept their new terms which would require me to pay an additional almost $30 a month more to continue that they canceled my account! My account was paid through at least Aug 31 2009.

    So I brought up a couple facts and maybe a threat or two and they quickly emailed me back that I could keep my site up through the term I had paid.

    To see my personal post on my experience…go here http://www.halloffamemoms.com/2009/05/my-drop-ship-design-regret/

    I do NOT recommend them. Once I joined…they offered me a # of SEO packages to get my site seen…I didn’t buy any…I did my own SEO.

    What most people don’t know is that if your customer makes a purchase of 50.00 or more they require the customer to fax them a copy of their drivers license BEFORE they will approve the sell. That was the give away to me that these people must be from another country because NO online site makes you do that before making a purchase.

    Just like another post on this string they blocked my site and told me I had to start paying a monthly fee and that was before my yearly contract was up. I threatened them with my attorney and they quickly released the site putting it back up on the web. I’m guessing they are not from this country which maybe why they don’t want any trouble from the law. I don’t know. Their prices are also not the best so it is hard to compete. The thing caused me to cancel was when I discovered they force people to send them a copy of their drivers license if they want to make a purchase of 50.00 or more. That will really hurt your sells. No other company has those rules.

    I use them and I wish I could find a replacement dropshipping company. Instead I’ll use social media as a powerful tool. Word of mouth is LOUD! I had the same experience as Tracy. I wish I would have put up a stink. Another time I told them not to ship something when they said it was on backorder. I had 2 days to tell them. I told them on day 1. They sent it. The customer of course wouldn’t send it back and they wouldn’t take the hit. They’d rather the little man take the hit. I have so many complaints about them. Slow service for the warehouse I use is another one. 2 weeks to get to a customer is a long time in the days of Ebay where people expect items in 3 days.

    Dropshipdesign is a rip off. Once you sign up you will not be able to contact anyone and they will keep attempting to take money from your credit card. A lot of the good reviews you see online about them are from affiliates who are trying to sell you the product. Do some more research before you decide and check the better business bureau for info on them

    I sell on eBay and let me tell you all, dropshipdesign is the best company out there when it comes to dropship products. All the complaints i read here are little hickups that are part of doing normal business. I am taking time to come to their defense since those of us that are actually making real money with dropshipdesign are probably too busy with out business to write positive comments. Keep up the good service DSD :)

    Well Friday I signed up, put some stuff on ebay and notice everyone else on ebay had it for cheaper or there was no profit to be made. I cancel on Monday and asked for my money back. That took off about $20 and wanted to give me the rest on paypal, so I refused it. And lost the whole thing. Because I filed a complaint with paypal and lost. In small prints when ordering under agreement is state setup fee are something to that matter is unrefundable. And they were such assh…e they won’t even give me the rest.
    The day after I ask for a refund, they call me and said they were look for people to sponser and show them how to make money with them. I went along with them for a few days. A then the said it was going to cost me $5000 or some junk like that for them to teach me.

    I have used DropshipDesign before. The only problem I had with them was a slow web server. This was a few years ago. I have never missed a product that I have ordered. My biggest grip is no free phone support. But I have notice there ticketing system has improved a great deal. And there website has improved on the upload speed or it might be my new computer. Most people want to join these dropshipping company’s Thinking there going to be rich. Needless to say eBay is flooded with this stuff. People will drop there prices just to make one dollar. For me it’s the luck of the draw when posting on eBay or any other auction sites(s).The Website thru dropshipdesing.com. It’s not magic. It takes your time to learn the tricks of the traded when it comes to marketing your own website. If you think DropshipDesing.com is a scam. You better think again. After all they have to compete with retail giants like wal-mart etc. (Beware of scams and internet credit fraud) I was scammed by: http://www.dropshippers.com Out of $248.00. The web address posted on there website comes back as a residential address in Google maps. Also the Scranton police department confirmed it. Well any how if you think you was ripped off by dropshippers of any kind you can file a complaint at: The Internet Crime Complaint Center at: http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

    I read one of the reviews above warning of using Dropship Design. The person reviewing this company stated they verified with the Scranton Police the location is a residential address. I happen to live six blocks away from this address and I can tell you without a doubt this address is a residential address. In fact, there are no buildings that resemble the so called “Corporate Center” which is pictured on their website. I hope this review will raise a Red Flag and prevent someone from spending their hard earned money only to be scammed. My advice is to RUN!!!!!

    DropshipDesign is a definite site to avoid unless you’re in the business of losing a lot of money. They make outrageous claims of selling their items at “wholesale prices” when in fact they are offering them at prices well over the price you’ll ever sell them for, like most other drop-ship companies who want a fee before they show you their stock prices. In fact they only charge you a fee because they know that’s the only money they’ll be getting from you. When I confronted them about their prices and fees, I told them I would be warning the public and asked for any comments, they simply replied “Thank you for the free marketing”

    Waste your money with these con artists if you like, but don’t complain about not being warned afterwards. 0/10

I complained that they never emailed me any information to log in and found that my ISP blocks them because they are a SCAM. Then their website email does not work and they say in the ticket we emailed you how to activate the email. Bu I cant get their emails because they are blocked by ISP (or they never really sent).

    I also tried to use Ebay, but can’t find a ‘hot item’. Their wholesale prices are not bad, it is the shipping that doesn’t allow to reap much profit. It is also hard to sell on other sites as you have to cut and paste. There are soooo many products that as you modify your site, when new items come in; it changes any any changes you may have made. THEY DON’T HAVE A VERBOSE Seach for products. If you don’t have a business license, merchant account (don’t get one either…to start), etc you won’t or it will be hard to find anything much easier and/or cheaper.
    If you want to buy in quantities and/or have want to sell on your own website, flea market, Yard sale, store front…there are much cheaper options.
    Most ISPs offer FREE web space ( Although I noticed mine just dropped it)…but Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc still do. PayPal is free too (for rheir lowrst standard).
