Elite Dropshippers Review: It’s NOT What They’re Selling You

I could make a LOT of money by telling you Cesar Ramirez’ product is great and that it’s the best training you’ll ever find if you’re trying to build an internet business, but instead I’m going to tell you the truth in this Elite Dropshippers review.

I am not an affiliate for Elite Dropshippers. I run this site to give honest, insightful reviews about the products I purchase online. You won’t find me ranting and raving about what a good job Cesar Ramirez has done with this product because, frankly, he hasn’t, and I don’t lie to people just so I can make money off of them. What you’ll read below is what everyone would be saying about Elite Dropshippers if they were telling the truth.

Elite Dropshippers Review Summary

If you don’t want to read everything below, here’s what you need to know. What EDS teaches is a clear violation of Amazon’s Terms of Service (in multiple ways), the “No Refund” policy is an indication that Cesar knows his training is low-quality, membership is incredibly overpriced, and most people making money from this product aren’t making it by selling on Ebay, they’re making it by convincing people like you the product has the potential to change your life.

I give supporting evidence to all of these claims, so if you’re ready to be 100% convinced that Elite Dropshippers is a waste of your money, make sure to read the entire review below.

The Business Business Model Is Against Amazon’s TOS

The most important thing to mention about Elite Dropshippers is that their entire business model is against Amazon’s Terms of Service. In their legal documents, Amazon makes it very clear that you are not allowed to reproduce their images and product descriptions, and that you have no resale rights at all, whatsoever.

Additionally, it’s against Amazon Prime’s terms of service to use your membership to sell to other people, which again is what Elite Dropshippers advocates within their product.

Amazon Prime's Terms also bans using it for resale

It doesn’t matter how good the “Amazon scraping software” is – it’s a flagrant violation of Amazon’s terms in multiple ways, making the entire concept of turnkey profits by finding something on Amazon, ripping off it’s images and description, then listing it on Ebay completely invalid.

Elite Dropshippers’ Very Clear, Very Strict “No Refund” Policy

Let’s be honest: If you’re selling a legitimate, worthwhile product that is going to teach people how to make a part-time or full-time income from home, why in the world would you be so risk-averse to refunds like Cesar Ramirez is within EDS’ terms?

EDS' no refund policy

If you’re delivering on your promises to give someone a product that they can truly use to make a lot of money, you don’t need to worry about them asking for a refund. The terms state that once you’ve logged in, you’ve accessed the product, and once you’ve accessed the product, they can’t remove their incredible, life-changing training from your brain so you can’t have your money back.

Is there anyone reading this review that would refund if Elite Dropshippers delivered on its promises? If you could realistically make just $100 per day, that would be an incredible return on your investment and you could easily pay for the membership within your first month.

No, the only reason to be so anti-refund is because Cesar Ramirez knows that he is delivering a product that many people will use and see lackluster results, and he’s covering his tracks so that your money stays in between his greedy little fingers.

Ebay/Paypal Fees Make It Very Difficult to Profit

If you’re buying products from retailers for full retail or just-below-retail prices, it’s pretty tough to stay competitive. Buying from companies like Amazon, Overstock, etc… like Elite Dropshippers recommends leaves almost no room for you to increase the price and actually turn a profit.

Then if you factor in Ebay/Paypal fees (close to 10% combined), you’re in even more trouble. Say you find an item for $80 on Overstock.com and the full retail price is $90. You list it on Ebay for $90, it sells (hooray!) and you feel like you just made $10 profit, but keep in mind that you need to pay close to $9 in fees for that $90 sale, leaving you with just $1.00 remaining. Time to go buy some Chicken McNuggets!

Once you start factoring in angles like this the buy low, sell high business model that Elite Dropshippers is trying to sell you starts looking more and more like Swiss cheese.

Membership Is Incredibly Overpriced

EDS membership pricing options

You already know that Elite Dropshippers has a strict “No Refund” policy, and once you get to the exorbitant pricing that Cesar Ramirez has set for his “program”, that idea becomes significantly more frightening.

What’s the reason for such high prices? And why is there a recurring monthly fee when the training doesn’t change month-to-month and you probably only need support a handful of times over the entire life of using the product? I’ll tell you why, it’s because…

Most People Making Money from EDS Aren’t Selling on Ebay

Most people making money from EDS are doing it by pimping themselves out all over YouTube and the rest of the internet to convince you that Elite Dropshippers is a great program that can change your life. The big money isn’t in following the training and selling on Ebay (as explained in all of my points above), it’s in convincing others that EDS is a great product and getting them to buy through your link.

That’s why you’re seeing positive reviews for this low-quality training all over the internet. If that person can convince you to buy Elite Dropshippers through their link, they’ll get 50% of your massive up-front fee and 50% of all of your monthly recurring fees. This is also why EDS has such high monthly fees – so that they can attract affiliates that will sell the product all across the internet.

Final Rating: F

There’s nothing within Elite Dropshippers that justifies its exorbitant pricing. The concept is invalid, Cesar Ramirez will keep your money even if you’re extremely dissatisfied, and most people aren’t making money following EDS’ training, they’re making money by selling the product to other people like you.

Do yourself a favor and avoid even coming close to this product or its creator. You’re better off listening to this 100% free podcast by Pat Flynn where a couple explains how they’re making six figures a year selling items on Amazon. It’s 100% free (not $397-$597) and you don’t have to worry about a greedy publisher keeping your money if you’re not happy with the training.

Thanks for the insight on this Dropshipping stuff. When I heard about dropshipping my first thought is…. can people really do this? When you showed the profits that one would make, it’s really not even worth it. Thanks for showing the real deal. 🙂

    I’ve met people that run legitimate, profitable dropshipping businesses in the past and discussed the idea of trying to dropship retail to them. They’ve all told me that NONE of their business revolves around relationships with retailers – they all have arrangements with wholesalers or other companies to sell the products at a discount so that their margins are thicker, which makes the business model make so much more sense than what Elite Dropshippers is teaching. I’m glad you found it helpful – thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Evelyn!

Hello, Ian

Dropshipping has never really been my thing because it comes across a little scammy to me. But then again I suppose it’s programs like Elite Dropshippers that give it a bad reputation, kind of like MLM and Empower Network in a sense, lol.

But great review though and thanks for the article. It’s opened my eyes and especially when things like this cost so much any way.

I will be sticking firmly to Wealthy Affiliate and my online business instead 😉

    Glad to hear it, Neil! Yup, I think you’re right. People are beginning to understand dropshipping in the sense that products like Elite Dropshipping and DS Domination are teaching it, which is a far cry from what dropshipping started out as. The concept is the same – wait for someone to buy something at a higher price than you can get it for, sell it to the consumer, then ship directly from manufacturer/wholesaler to the consumer. But trying to mark up and resell retail where at least 1-2 other companies’ margins are already built in? That’s just insane. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Neil! I’m happy to know you were here and that the content was helpful.

Hi Ian, I came across EDS some time ago but I really did not give it much attention. After reading your post, I can certainly say that I am happy that I did not waste my time checking it out. Thank you so much for sharing this very vital information.

    No problem at all, Vanessa! I’m glad you never took the plunge with EDS – it’s super expensive and you wouldn’t have been able to get a refund once you tried out the strategies and found they didn’t work. Thanks for taking the time to read the review and leave a comment – if I can help you with anything else down the road don’t hesitate to reach out!

If it sounds like a scam, it probably is. Good review about someone and their product I hadn’t heard of before – and hope to never hear from again.
