Doba is Perfect For Noobs
If you wanted to get into the dropshipping game and have never done it before, Doba is perfect for you. Your profit margin might be lower(for the product we tried, it was 10%) than TRUE dropshippers (they are shrouded in secrecy and you have to do diligent research to find out who they are) but this will definitely get you into the game. Doba is perfect for someone who needs to get their foot in the door and to finally try to make money for themself. Besides, they have a 7 day free trial so what is there to lose?
Why Doba is good
1)They will offer you 2 months free if you find prices that are cheaper than theirs (this applies to single units since doba lists its products as single products). With this being said, people who buy in bulk will still be getting it cheaper than you.
2)Their list of products keep growing (over 1,000,000 products). They have name brands such as Apple, Sony, Phillips, etc.
3)They have their own ebay tools
Why Doba might not be good
1)If you already have your own connections in the wholesale/dropshipping business, there is no reason to use Doba.
2)They might guarantee the lowest price for single units, but they are still a middleman.
3)Although they state that you can make 70% profit margin, you most likely will not. It will be in the 10%-30% area.

Comments from salehoo –
2 |I agree that Doba is very well laid out from the time you sign up for the free trial to digging in finding the products you want to sell online. I also think that the profit margins in some of the products are lower than they advertise since if many people are selling the same item on eBay for instance, then you will have a lower sell price to compete with others.
One thing that I have found is that sometimes items will go out of stock if you have them listed on eBay and then try to purchase after the auction is over. I’m not sure how often this happens, but I would assume that Doba deals with many different suppliers so each one can vary in the stock levels depending on the items you are selling.
Overall I think Doba is an excellent program for the complete newbie looking to start selling products online because of their training and support provided. It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish when selling products online since there are many avenues you can sell such as eBay, your own website, froogle, amazon, etc. They offer a free trial, so it’s no risk on your part to get started with them.
