    My name is Barnito and I'm totally new to IM.

    I would really appreciate anyone that's truly willing to help me with any tips or information. For the past couple of days I've been reading different methods of drop-shipping and it is something that I would like to try. My problem is that I just need a little bit of guidance. Maybe my problem is that I've been reading too many different topics/posts and now I'm just confused and a bit lost.

    What I'm trying to do is drop-ship using Amazon to sell on eBay.
    These are my account limits:

    You can sell up to 100 items or up to $5,000.00 per month, whichever comes first.

    I realized that I will never have all the information and experienced needed for this so i decided to just dive into it yesterday and learn as I go. I made 3 listings on eBay just to get the feel of it and get my feet wet with writing up the descriptions etc. That was my main goal to just get the ball rolling but to my surprise I actually made a sell out of those 3 listings. Under the calculations that I had made I would of made about $5 dollars profit but I ended up making just $1 dollar. The reason behind this was that I forgot to include taxes when making my calculations... Ooooops. It's okay but i must avoid silly mistakes like this because they could really cost me with higher priced products or different situations.

    These are the questions that I have:

    Amazon Prime Question
    Now I'm under the impression that I can start an amazon prime trial by using my debit card and just cancel before the end date. But how do I go about getting another trial?
    New card? I'm assuming I can use a prepaid visa card? or what's the best way to go about this?

    Finding the Products to Sell:
    What is the best way to find products to sell? I would assume that one way would be to list a lot of products for a period of time and see what sells constantly and what doesn't. But is there a better route to this? I've read on here people mentioning Terapeak as an alternative, thoughts?
    Or what am I missing? anyone wants to message me your golden list? hahaha kidding.
    But in all seriousness what's the best way to find products?

    What am I missing? Any tips? I'm new to this but I want to give this my all, I won't be wasting your time.
    I'm 23 working a full time job. My goal is just to make some side money to help with keeping me a float and ease the pressure off of me. I would probably be able to dedicate an hour or two each day throughout the week. But dedicating all Friday night, Saturday and Sunday to this.

    My goal:
    My goal is to be able to make $5-10 dollars a day
    Is this a good starting point? or are my exceptions a little too high?

    Help me with knowledge and guidance please! Thank you for taking the time to read all of this.

    Amazon has this new service where they sell your item for you. I think you should try that out. You can easily earn over 1k usd per day mate.
