    yes there is money to be made this way, but is there a full proof way to do this and send to alternative addresses per each order?

    Find a manufacturer or wholesaler, build a relationship with them. Get approved after you fill out their applications, go through their catalogs and find specific products that you can make money on. I deal with American manufacturers only, but obviously there are sites like alibaba that you can use to contact Chinese/overseas manufacturers.

    Yes, there is a way to do this. There are many sellers on eBay who pick the drop Shipping route. I have failed in the drop Shipping department because there are a lot of things that usually go wrong. Like wrong order resulting in returns, negative feedbacks, account suspensions .. But once you have established your contacts who are willing to work smoothly, I believe your business will run smooth on the drop Shipping end. Yes, there is money to be made using drop shipping, without actually in person being in no contact what so ever with the product.

    Sure you can...But you need to make sure the items you are buying are as described in your listings.
    This is key to any successful eBay business. Always try to avoid negative feedback and find a supplier who is your friend.

    Cheers
