    How's it going guys?

    Recently started my journey to earning some cash via Amazon-eBay DS Method... And figured why not some motivation for myself and my fellow newcomers...

    So, what's everyone making per week/month/year/whatever, across how many accounts?

    Hope I'm not raining on anyone's parade here but I was recently doing drop shipping on my primary personal eBay account all to only have things go south to the point that my eBay account was lost. One person I worked with was located outside of the US and the shipping method he used was a method that took well over 30 days for buyers to receive their items. This caused me to run into people claiming they never received items, etc etc. Other person I worked with was located here in the US and he worked with other people and would mainly just fine sellers like myself to list items on his behalf for the people he worked with. Now with this case the items could have been VERO / Fake knockoff's etc and there was complaints because he couldn't provide Tracking Info in a timely matter and there was other people who claimed to not have received items, even a customer who got a damaged item because of poor packaging. Because of the things mentioned above sadly I'm no longer able to sell on eBay anymore and my selling privileges has been completely suspended / terminated, even after providing eBay with the documents they requested.

    All I will say is drop shipping is a risky business and should be taken on with caution if you're using your own personal eBay account or if you don't have any product in hand to ship out yourself or if the people you're working with doesn't care much at all about you the seller. In the end it just makes for bad business but me being in a situation that I'm in I was somewhat forced to take on such a venture. Anyway this is just my story and experience with drop shipping.

    Dropshipping is one of my main incomes but I learned from a online program with videos and tools. I know it's hard to find vendors to buy from that will get your product to your buyer on time buy they supply ed it all for me. Pm me if you want more info on it.

    This is the type of question that won't actually help you in any way.
    Some people will be killing it, others will be struggling.
    It will vary because so many factors come into play.

    Much better spending your time on product/market research and finding the best deals from the best vendors.

    To be honest working through ebay can be quite a learning process and training a staff to scale can be time consuming. Not to mention ebay is not forgiving for you new staffs mistakes. In fact one error made by a new employee cost us an entire account that was making $1k per month. I would get as much information as possible before starting and be committed to learning and adjusting as much as possible.

    We have been developing software to handle many of the nuances so such mistakes can't be made by novices and new staff. It's the only option we have seen to scale our business.

    I stopped at £50-70 a day which is around 15-20 orders a day. Can easily scale with more accounts and order proccesors.

    You have to have multiple stealth accounts (and the knowledge to operate them).

    eBay can shut you down at any time, and not provide any reason.

    is the stealth eBay's being used with legitimate PayPal's? or is the PayPal itself also stealth? and if this is the case how does one get funds from the non legit PayPal?

    Sounds pretty good, where did you find the order processors and how did you train them? I have had some trouble here unfortunately, one of the admin's made some mistakes and killed one entire account that was making 1k per month.

    I didn't have order processors that's why I was only making £50 a day. That was the same reason I didn't end up doing it, I couldn't trust someone else with my account.

    Started eBay and Amazon last week, making around 50-70 quid per day on each, it's addictive!

    Purely coincidental, is only one person allowed to say that they make 50-70 quid a day on here then? (Innit)

    I wasn't looking for any help. Just curious what other members success (or lack thereof) has been.

    I've spent 6-8+ hours on the market the last few days, taking 5min to read some potentially motivating figures isn't taking away from that.

    Yeah but you do realise most of the people really earning won't disclose it, and those that do are usually bullshitting. So unless you get motivated by bullshit then it is pointless.
    The only time it is motivating is when it is true and somebody backs it up with details of their business and most people understandably won't share that information.

    I see members all over BHW post their earnings, their proof, too. A screenshot of your earnings does not give me or anyone else any benefit other than confirmation (which also I never mentioned anything about doing so).

    If people want to lie, let them lie. It still gives me numbers to look at and work towards. Based off most users who post in this section though, there are a lot in the same boat as me or are just building their grounding. I doubt anyone who's going to reply in here would lie about making 50-500$/week.

    I get your point, but I'd still like to hear from experienced users first hand, pick their brains if they allowed it. How long did it take them to reach their earning, how many accounts, and so on. Most would and have openly shared these tings.
