I sent a polite email saying that if I didn't get a response by 11 PM CST on the next day I was done with them. This elicted nothing from them. Nothing. Not a thing. It got so that every time I logged on to the site the chat was not available.
And the other three items? That is also a lovely story. Now I have one piece of neutral feedback on my otherwise pristine Ebay feedback record and I don't blame the recipient. She was actually very merciful considering that the item she was supposed to get is different from what she got!
I have contacted the buyers whose orders I was unable to enter. And the other two buyers? One of them has opened a case/dispute on the premise that they have not yet received their item. Hmph. Just wait till he/she actually gets the item? Great! ANOTHER piece of neutral, if not negative feedback for me, Little Miss Dory Drop Shipping Dummy. And who can blame them?
I am not saying that there are not legitimate drop shipping companies out there, because I believe that there are. I am just saying that it does not seem reasonable for me to pay for such a service when the company is already making money off of the merchandise sold. My research tells me that half of the companies that do that are a scam. Sigh.
I know that there is a legitimate drop shipping company that will drop ship their merchandise to my customers and I know that there is a company who will do this so that I can sell stuff on Ebay and there won't already be 188 other sellers already workin' the same stuff. I just know it. I do.
