    I think these sites are good start for initial exercise to venture into dropshipping. But, still there are spammies out there like some dropship services creating their own review sites and ratings to mislead people.

    A little bit of background research will save you tons of headaches in the future. Vetting your suppliers is akin to running background checks on new potential new employment recruits. If you phone the references and get feedback from others you can have a fair idea of the integrity of the candidate, and you are unlikely to get any unpleasant surprises a couple of months down the line, just when you need it the least!
