“A drop-ship order taker isn't information, it is disinformation. "I claim to be doing this for money, but I won't tell you who actually does it." It's a lie, pure and simple……….That is just flat not honest. If it is not outright criminal fraud, still, mere fact that society tolerates that kind of deception -- that shoppers aren't taught from birth to avoid it like an Ebola outbreak -- gives unlimited unquenchable opportunities for outright criminal fraud. No, there are surely thousands of genuine little shops out there, providing their own unique goods and services, and depending on net to find customers. The Vstore spammers try to bury real little guys in doorway spam. Who wouldn't sympathize with little guys? Who WOULD sympathize with bully with a thousand fright masks (each claiming to be a "little guy")?”
As you can see, folks at ODP do not think much of websites that use dropship method of selling products, regardless if it a cost effective method for website. It comes down to this, ”if a company designs and manufactures something, then obviously they are offering both unique services and unique goods. Such a company has ample scope for creating a website containing an authoritative description of those goods and services, and that would indeed be listable.” By their very nature sites which promote someone else's wares neat don't provide unique content, simply another way of purchasing same thing.”
If ODP thinks otherwise then you are considered a drop shipper and will not get listed in ODP.
My advice to all websites out there that use dropship method to sell products on your websites, even if your site is one of a kind, do not bother trying to get listed with ODP, because you will not. If you’re already listed, check periodically to see if your listing is still there and be thankful if it is, because if an ODP editor happens across it, chances are it will be deleted.
