    I have looked every where and I really couldn't find a clear answer, hopefully I can get one here.

    I know that many dropship from walmart, however how do you guys continue to dropship from them? I did it a while back and they cut me off. Maybe there is a specific route that I have to take? No expecting a clear answer on this part, however a few hints here and there would help.

    Let me just clarify that I am not new to the drop shipping scene, been doing it for a while and understand it very well. I know for a fact some have been drop shipping from walmart for years, however how that is done is a mystery as they don't allow it.

    Thanks.

    What exactly happened? They shouldn't block you simply for shipping out your items to another dress through their online cart. Did they tell you what the problem was? I never dropped from Walmart, I don't think the margins on eBay would make you any profit unless you are listing the products on your own ecommerce website like I suggest doing. I also suggest getting an actual merchant account as well and not use a third party payment system. Merchant pays gates typically cost you around $50 - 75 per month for service fees then you also have transaction and swipe fees but its well worth it if you can SEO your site and actually sell from it. I did a video here a while back explaining why PayPal likes to limit and cancel PayPal accounts on people running their own sites. When you compete with eBay's platform you take sales away from top rated seller accounts that earn ebay that huge bottom line profit. PayPal has it in their best interest to shut you down and deny you services based on that, but that won't be the excuse they use. lol

    This was a while back, they said they pretty much don't allow it.. they didn't really go into details but it was from a supervisor.. very rude fella. Few days back I tried to ask them straight up to see what they say, the lady on the phone said its not allowed but she read the terms to me and she said they have the right to cancel orders based on their discretion if they know I am reselling. I am sure there is a proper way of doing it as I have seen a few doing it for years and they are definitely drop shipping.

    I have every other part figured out, margins, sales, collecting payments etc. I am currently doing it with few other stores and I have asked them straight out and they have even provided API, etc.. this will prevent surprises.

    I think the only real way of doing it would be to create about 3 accounts, put them in some family members names and between the accounts alternate the purchasing and shipping. So if you are running your own ecommerce site and you are only using Walmart, I suggest using other resources as well or eliminating purchasing at Walmart and purchase from Amazon. Azon doesn't have an issue with reselling, if they did it would impact a large percentage of their business. Anything you can find on Walmart you can find on the Azon site. After creating your shopping site (opencart is free), you can search for 5 star rated products only in the categories you want to sell from on your site. Make sure that those items are Amazon fulfilled items only so you have a less likley chance they will run out of stock during a shipment.

    I'm glad to offer anyone my help out there that needs it.

    Thanks for the reply, unfortunently the volume I'll be doing will be extremely high.. would need more than just 3 accounts and they can easily link them and ban them all.

    There is no need to have your own website, I stay within available marketplaces...much easier and less hassle.

    I suggest opening up a warehouse then if your volume is going to be that high. Good luck.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread, but this is a legit question. Wouldn't walmart care if you are drop shipping with all these different shipping addresses and close your account?
