    So I had an item dropshipped and I'm thinking I've been ripped off along with the buyer. He paid 719 for the item and I had two buyers. Sent a cut to the dropshipper who supposedly had a supplier.

    I don't have the money to refund the buyer. What do I do to fix this? Will paypal refund the buyer from their own money if they know I'm a victim as well? Or will they ban me? Will I be banned from ebay as well? What do i do to fix this? I'm scared. Never dropshipping again if this is what I think it is: A scam.

    Yes, a member here. Will be going to the shitlist if he doesn't come through. Won't mention his username until I know who I'm dealing with.

    Well, heres the thing. He skyped me saying he sent the tracking numbers out, but I didn't get the email. He sent it to the wrong email, and have been waiting for a response from him on skype to send it to the right email. Still nothin'. Also, it was supposed to be two day shipping, not a week. Also, this is supposedly USA manufactured. The user's location does say EU though, so I'm not sure where it would be dropshipped from.

    Tomorrow will have been a week since the items were supposedly sent out. IF the buyers haven't received them, what should I do? Dispute the paypal email I sent the money too?

    Worst case, Paypal will take the money from your Paypal account and if you don't have enough balance to cover it, your balance will become negative. Eventually they will try to recover their funds - sometimes they dip into your bank account if you have one attached (though this is pretty rare). Usually they would pass your account's info onto a collections agency. Your Paypal account would become limited and that information would be permanently banned from Paypal.

    If you paid your dropshipper via credit card, you can file chargeback. If it was via Paypal then you can file a dispute through them. Good luck.

    Well my paypal is in the negative. Dammit. Never trusting a dropshipper again. (Unless it's Amazon). And he's going to the shit list if he doesn't respond. It's idiots like these that make me wanna go pure blackhat.

    I'd probably be putting a little pressure on the dropshipper if it has been more than just a few days overdue.

    best option is file a dispute on paypal to ur dropshipper .. that way to win dispute he will give tracking number
    when he does that take that tracking number and give it to ur buyer

    case two :
    he dosntgive tracking number and u win the case
    money goes back and it makes ur balance0 again

    Uh oh...my spidey sense says you're never going to get a valid tracking # and you're gonna get hosed. If he has the tracking #, he shouldn't have problem giving it to you over skype while you are talking to him.

    Ok well how do I refund the buyers? I'm in the negative, so even if I try to refund the ebay buyers, it doesn't work. Not enough funds. So how do I refund them?

    As far as the dropshipper, I opened a dispute on paypal.

    HA! I'm not making NEARLY enough to justify that. I just started getting good at selling and all of a sudden this happens. I don't have the money to PUT in my paypal account.

    It's always a good practice to have some money in paypal accounts for situations like this, if you want a long term business. I'm aware that paypal can be scammy so I wouldn't leave a lot of money in there, but crap does happen, and paypal/eBay will not care that a dropshipper screwed you.
