First of all, I'd like to thank @Crazycam727 for his amazing post about his amazing journey, he inspired me (and maybe a lot of other people) to start their online business.

So just like he did, I started with ebay, because I (just like him) didn't have much money to start with. I struggled to pass ebay's suspension at first, and I'm still struggling with Paypal's holds until the moment, because I have to wait 30 to 60 days to receive the payments, and using Paypal balance isn't available in my country amongst other problems related to being in a third world country.

I have passed the 100$/month milestone, I know it's not much especially since I've been working on the store for almost 6 months now, and my goal is beyond that, but it is what it is for now.

One final word to the guys who haven't started yet: Just get started, and don't lose hope.

I can relate with your experience. I tried testing all avenues to improve my business. I came along good quality products from site of Fulfillman

Ebay is fuckin me in the ass at the moment!, spent a few days snipping listings only to find out there is live bug currently fucking up all my listings. The bug adds like $10 extra on the final price. So I list an item for lets say $20 and when its like it goes to price like $27.99. Proper fucking up my listings, so had to put it on hold. Spoke to ebay like 1000000 times and they confirmed other sellers have the same issue. Apparently it happens when you chose to use "List a similar item". So watch out sir, but your stats are lovely, scale that shit up.

You use Zik?

I never use List a similar item, and I haven't listed any item recently so idk for sure if I have that problem, that's real pain in the ass on top of the other problems.

Yes, I use Zik, I can't do anything without it.

Thanks, Paypal holds money for 30 days, and after that I have to wait for the start of the next month for it to send the money to my bank, It's possible to withdraw the money before the end of the month but for a fee (idk how much exactly, I haven't tried it yet)

Yes, paypal sucks in holding your funds. Try calling them after 30days of selling.
Just maintain your high selling standard performance you should get the funds sooner!
Are you doing retail arbitrage?

Good work for a newbie.

Tbh, I think $100 is pretty low amount of profit for the amount of effort spent. I would recommend learning how to use paid ads as soon as possible so that you can make and market your own store for much higher profit margins, while lowering the time spent.

if your traffic outside ebay there is no point using ebay just used your own ecom. the point of using ebay is the free traffic,

ebay doesnt allow direct dropshipping anymore I thought? Or are you sending it to a warehouse first and having them fulfill your order?
