I am looking for a Live Coral Wholesaler/DROP SHIPPER for saltwater tanks. I have a web page that is specializing in coral. I will be listing your product on my page and forwarding my orders to be filled by you.

Drop shipping is where you move from the manufacturer directly to the retailer without going through the usual distribution channels.

Baaically what I am looking for is hobbyist(s) that can supply my website with produce.

I don't think you've thought through the logistics. Lovely as it would be for hobbyists to choose to pay someone to sell on their site instead of selling on a forum for free or pay for eBay's visibility, it's pretty unlikely that one customer would buy everything from one hobbyist selling on your site. So now you have 4-6 hobbyists shipping $20 of frags each for one order... you sure your buyers are interested in paying $160-240 in shipping?

A wholesaler and hobbyist are different things entirely. Overall a terrible thought out idea. Would be nice but it don't work.

Yeah I didn't really think about it. I was just getting frustrated with emailing wholesalers and having them tell me they don't drop ship. I guess I was trying to look for leads
