Doba.com helps simplify product sourcing. That is, we streamline product sourcing for the emerging market of web-based entrepreneurs starting and growing a retail business.

By aggregating product distribution and purchasing power through a single connection point, Doba creates unique opportunities for suppliers and retailers.
How can it help smaller ecommerce sites?
Every retail business needs a consistent and reliable source of products to sell. Finding that source of products is frequently the first roadblock that new entrepreneurs face.
Do you recommend drop shipping?
Yes. Drop shipping is invaluable for ecommerce businesses. By drop shipping, the retailer ships product directly to the customer from the supplier’s warehouse. The retailer never touches the product. This process minimizes the risk to retailers because they do not need to buy the product until after it has sold. With drop shipping, suppliers take care of all warehousing, packaging and shipping of products, thus saving the retailer a great deal of money. Doba has simplified the drop shipping process even further by giving retailers instant access to 20 suppliers with over 150,000 products. With our simplified service, ecommerce retailers can:
- Choose a product to sell.
- Advertise the product via auction sites, an Internet store or through other methods.
- Sell the product and collect payment.
- Order the product on our site.
- Satisfy the customer and sell again. Never deal with the hassles of holding inventory or of having to ship orders.
