    So I thought of a cool niche idea for dropshipping, and was wondering if it's possible to use a personal Amazon Prime account to do it? Using the free 2 day shipping. Anyone have any experience doing this? Was just wondering if and how quickly Amazon catches onto someone doing this.

    You can use your own personal account. I would not advise it as they are pretty good about shutting down drop shippers.

    I would suggest instead you make a new account and get the prime trial for 30 days. You will need to add a card to this account any will do. You can go into your account settings and cancel your prime subscription right away so that you don't get charged after 30 days.

    You can use it but Amazon ban dropshippers easily.

    The prime trial for 30 days looks a bit more interesting, imho. Still, I guess you will need to narrow down your target audience to people living in your area/city since radically different shipping destinations will most likely raise questions really soon.
    btw, if you haven't chosen your niche yet, make sure it has enough value for customers and at the same time is appealing from the point of view of SEO. there's a couple of guides by alidropship on evaluating a dropshipping niche's potential, so check them out if interested
