    Am I able to order stuff on amazon and sell on ebay?

    Eg. Camera on amazon has is selling for £120, I put on ebay for £150. It is then sold on ebay and sent to my paypal, then I send money to amazon via Paypal and then send it as a Alternative shipping to the customers address.

    Is that possible?

    Better make sure they use a custom label or your customer is going to have an issue!

    Yeah, I think you can remove the label, there is a little tick box. Do they accept paypal?

    Amazon don't accept Paypal. But you can transfer to bank/paypal debit card etc, then purchase.

    I tried this for a while when starting but this was before the option to have a custom label was introduced, didnt end well as loads of buyers left feedback saying items were from Amazon.

    Seems like a good idea if you can have your own custom label or remove it altogether.

    Good luck !

    it is very possible but hard part is finding a product with enough margin to cover eBay fees, Paypal fees.

    It's not so much about margin, but about quantity. If you make anything over 10% on a transaction you've done very well

    I have had to do this a few times with my drop shipper is out of the product. I just explain to the customer that it will be coming from your Amazon account. You are not telling the whole truth BUT your are not fibbing either. They will think you have a relationship Amazon and eBay.

    I've done this a couple of times with Amazon and other site, but it's usually not very profitable.

    Doesn't sound very profitable unless you find certain products. Doubt I'd be able to pull it off on anything dealing with popular electornics

    This can be fairly profitable if you sell items such as you might find here: passwird.com This has gotta be worth some rep points judging from the previous responses? Eh there dudes? Cmon no gains to be had? I bought a logitech "badass" universal remote for 35 shipped and sold it for 70+shipping. I bought a nitro powered remote control car for 99 and sold for 250...mmmmm mmm bitch!

    Before selling any items from Amazon to ebay customers you need to first purchase the item for yourself to inspect the item, because a picture of the item on Amazon is just not enough.

    not gonna lie i'm actually kinda impressed with some of the items on that site you listed


    also a pretty good market for amazon to ebay would be books ... amazon has some great and rare books, that can sell for some pretty decent profit

    regardless of the label situation, amazon's boxes usually say amazon inked right onto the box itself.

    i have not noticed the custom label option but will look next time!

    I know that I'm reviving a seemingly dead thread, but I have a question that I figured would be better put here rather than starting a new thread and mucking up BHWs database.

    I know you can add the "gift-option" so the invoice isn't seen inside, but is there anyway to custom label or even just white label the ship-from so they cannot find out Amazon shipped it to them? Does anyone know?

    Dropshipping is a thing of the past. Ebay and Amazon don't tolerate this, and are getting even stricter; I don't my account banned. The only true profitable way is to buy popular authentic products in bulk. Now you are in total control of your operation, and making thousands per month.

    Where does it say that ebay and amazon do not tolerate drop shipping?

    It is not my fault the buyer is lazy and has not done the research to find a product cheaper else where.

    buy low, sell high
