    Hi everyone, after spending the last year working with the methods taught in DS Domination, which can be found in the downloads section here on site I've run into a consistent problem sourcing products with a decent profit margin. Doing the whole Amazon to eBay arbitrage thing can be a great way to get you started but after all the fees are taken out there isn't much meat left on the bone for the seller. This lead me to trying to maximize my profits by searching out more than what is provided in the training.
    There isn't a lot to this method, but its going to let you find trending products at the best prices and provide you alternatives when you face the dreaded out of stock as a dropshipper. First, to find a product that you want to source you're going to have to research what is selling currently. For this I have a couple different methods. You can use eBay to search categories and browse whats sold within a given time frame. You can also use the free edition of terapeak to search trending items.
    Once you've found your trending item head over to the website pricegrabber. If the item is listed with multiple vendors your it will give you a price comparison between all vendors. It will also give you the manufacturer's name and relevant keywords you can use in your listing.
    I know that this method isn't much. It requires a bit more effort than just copying and pasting. If you put this to work more so than simply settling with dropshipping from just Amazon you will see your profits soar. Good luck, and happy selling.

    Yeah, I went back and reread my post. It is quite random. I typed it out in about three minutes and posted without going back through.
    The point of it all, whenever you find an item use free shop comparisons sites to find multiple vendors and the cheapest price. I recommend Pricegrabber. I have a bad habit of being long winded
