I have gone through a few book that say that you shouldnt pay for the ability to dropship someone elses products. They say that the money you make them from selling product is should be where their income comes from.
As I have been searching for a supplier, EVERYONE has a subscription. There are some free-ish options like Oberlo (which doesnt offer my products), but even they have subscriptions down the road. Everyone I find wants me to either pay for the subscription, or pay for the app.
Am I not looking hard enough? Or have I been reading outdated information? Is it normal to pay to dropship these days?
