    As I've been interested in dropshipping from amazon to Ebay from quite some time I've been looking up a few products and niches and I beleive I'm ready to get into this business. The only problem I've run across is the Amazon Prime. So here's my question. Do you guys buy amazon prime with a new account with new info/IP/prepaid credit card etc every month? Is there a way to get solid margins without using prime? How many items would need to be sold before Amazon would flag the account? If you use prepaid credit cards, do you simply use that to buy the prime for the account or also to order the items as well?

    Yes you start a new trial every month, you don't have to change your IP and credit card information all the time but at some point it does help to cover your tracks.

    Without prime you can dropship from other suppliers Amazon has a lot, and I mean A LOT, of competition right now. It got even more competitive now that companies like Salefreaks and Arbtrize are offering software which allow you to control pretty much everything.

    I've sold up to 700 items on an account before amazon cancelled the prime. They dont cancel the account, only prime so you just start another one.

    I use VCC for accounts and gift cards to purchase items.

    Hope this help

    Thanks, so I shouldn't be too worried then? Only until I come across a huge number of sales.

    Wow didn't know that prime would get upset with you for buying to much!!

    I setup my prime account as a business account with multiple users. Perhaps this makes it seem more legit that you are ordering in high volume if you are a business.
