    Here's what I want to do: Sell products on @mazon or ebay and dropship each order to the customer, netting me a small profit per order.

    Here's what I expect to happen: When the person pays for the item, I expect to use that money to buy the product from the vendor, pay the shipping and dropship it to the customer.

    The problem: In ebay, when the customer pays, the money shows up in my PayPal account, but I can't get to it! That's because they want the product shipped BEFORE the money is released to me. So, I can't use the customer's money to buy the product from the vendor!

    My question 1: Is there a workaround for this problem in ebay?
    My question 2: Will I have this same problem in @mazon?

    Thanks

    I don't know about amazon but there is no way around it on Ebay. Maybe come up with enough for the first sale and build off of that.

    I was afraid of that.

    Anybody sell on @mazon? Before I pay $40/month to be a seller there, I'd like to know if I can access my money before I ship my product to the customer.

    I dunno...this seems like a no-brainer to me but, I have several credit cards that dont charge interest if the bill is paid in full every 30 days. Charge the items, ship the items, collect the money, pay your cc bill?? Am I missing something?

    it will be the same on amazon, but the difference here is that you can actually get your money before having to buy it just confirm the shipment and dont incluide tracking number after that you will have your money on your amazon seller account and the just do a manual withdraw to your bank account and after 3 - 5 days get your money and shop the item, just dont offer expedicted shipping and you will be fine

    YES! That's exactly what I was thinking about doing. The only drawback with this is that the customer won't receive their tracking number straight away. Can anyone else verify that this method is doable?
