    I'm new to amazon - ebay dropshipping.
    I've purchased Profit spy. the bot works great and all but there is one problem : It's been 2 weeks and I didn't make 1 sell.
    Most likely because of the 0 feedbacks.
    I made few acc , because of the sell limit, I list items from low price to 50$ . and different niche each acc.

    I said I do 2 days fedEx shipping (because of prime), 2 handling days, and I accept returns.
    What did I miss, what am I doing wrong, can someone please help me break down that first wall?

    ummm, did you check if anyone is buying what you are selling? Just because you can make money does not mean someone wants to buy it. You have to sell when people are buying.

    You are giving very general answer and i don't think it is helpful for the author of this topic. Also he is already using Profit Spy and this software catches items that was sold so far and with this result you can find what to sell. How good this program is it is another story.

    I don't know how profit spy can help you. I myself have purchased that piece of software and what is does is just not very good so i threw it away. I recommend you to be patient for one account to get some feedbacks. One way to get feedbacks is to buy, so don't hesitate buying some 1 $ crap from china sellers who immediately leave feedback after purchase, with this i believe for 10$ you can get 10 feedbacks which means first - yellow star on eBay. But even with number of feedbacks it's not easy to sell. Start finding items on your own, your shipping option is fine, i do set the same option to tell my costumers that i ship in 2 days. Finding product that sell is not very easy. so do some research, i use Terapeak software for that and had few successful sells so far, you can try it . The program is free for 7 days and only 1 day is enough to know what it actually does and if you like you can pay or just cancel it's up to you. Another good thing is going to some famous brand profile on amazon and find new arrival product, it might get you some new items that has no or very low competition on eBay. Hope you will sell more. Wish you luck.

    Decent advice, but profit spy is not cra,p. You obviously didn't see the potential behind it. I've been using Profit Spy for about 2 weeks and have had great success with it.

    OP, change handling time to 1 business day. That way you qualify for Fast & Free Shipping. If you can, upgrade your account to an ebay store. Than run promoted listings at about 5% cut. Than you'll see way more views.

    Just keep it up and don't stop.

    You mentioned you made a few accounts due to limits, how many active listings do you currently have? A lot of people expect results with very low listings, which just won't be the case.

    sorry dude but zero feedback mean= troll on ebay.

    50$ = kinda steep, so make sure if you can spread your sales around lower priced items to make profit.
