    But it does not say how to make that agreement with the supplier.
    They usually want to sell in bulk and if they agree to dropshipping and we want out own log in the products, then we must pay at least a small quantity up front. Is that so?
    Other han this the article was very interesting and informing, thank you.

      Hi Flora,

      There’s a lot that goes into forming an agreement with a dropship partner. We often suggest starting with a dropship specialist like Oberlo. If you want to work directly with a manufacturer, the best way to get favorable terms in your agreement would be to present a solid business plan showing why it could be advantageous for the supplier to partner with you. We have a complete post called How To Find Reliable Dropshipping Suppliers that includes and expands on that advice. Thanks for your question, and good luck to you!
