Inventory-Free Commerce Means Retail Without The Risk
OREM, Utah--June 12, 2006--Doba(TM), the leader in product sourcing solutions, announced today that more than 250,000 wholesale-priced products are now available to Doba members for resale. In less than one year, Doba has more than doubled the number of suppliers who list product on www.doba.com. Available as an annual subscription, Doba provides members with the ability to browse more than a quarter of a million product listings in a virtual warehouse, select products to sell and fulfill the order by shipping directly to the buyer.
According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, nearly one in four (24%) Internet users, or 35 million people, have participated in an online auction -- selling or buying something. The possibilities for making profits through e-commerce are ever increasing, evident in the fact that online sales in 2005 increased by a hefty 25%, making 2006 primed for certain growth.
As one of the largest drop shipping companies in the industry, Doba gives its customers the freedom to make profits without holding and paying for inventory. This means Doba members never pay for a product until it sells. Doba offers an effective way of running a profitable small business by connecting retailers with wholesale suppliers who are prepared to drop ship products directly to the customer or end consumer. The supplier ships the product directly to the customer, and the retailer makes a profit on every sale without ever touching the product sold.
Doba makes it easy to overcome the first obstacle small business owners face -- finding the right products to sell. Doba connects members to a host of suppliers who offer a reliable, consistent source of popular products. Members have access to downloadable product images and descriptions, product categorization and product search capabilities. Online newsletters, weekly updates and customer support are also available to assist members in building a viable business.
