    I just started to look into Amazon dropshipping, selling on ebay.
    When I go through the checkout process in amazon, it requires me to input a phone number.

    What do you guys do about this? Do you go back to your ebay buyer and ask them to
    send you their phone number? Most people do not like to give their phone numbers on ebay.

    So what do you do?

    A) when listing in ebay, you put settings "phone number required" for all sales, so that when a buyer
    makes a purchase, they will have to submit a phone number

    B) list on ebay but don't make phone number required (as it might turn off most buyers), then ask
    them politely after the sale if they can give you their number? (Then of course u add in the amazon
    checkout)

    C) list on ebay, no phone number required, check out in amazon and just enter a phony number hoping that there will be no problems in the shipping process where they would need to dial that phone number?

    thanks, I've doing using "C" also. I tried to to apply option B, and some people never reply or take a long time respond and it delays the process, so I just started putting in a random number hoping there will not be any issues with delivery.
