    What is Dropshipping.
    Dropshipping means to buy an item for the purpose of reselling it for profit. Although
    the concept traditionally means reselling in a separate market to that from which
    the product was acquired, for our benefit the term also applies to buying something
    on eBay with the purpose of reselling it quickly, also on eBay, for almost
    guaranteed profit.

    For our purposes arbitrage involves one or more of the following basic steps:
    * Buying online to resell online.

    eBay
    eBay is a fantastic place to make money principally because of the huge volume of buyers
    visiting the site every day, all keen to get a deal or a discount on a wide range of goods.

    What To Sell On eBay?
    Now this is the big question. Get this right and you can consistently and easily make a
    steady profit from your listings.

    1) Go to eBay and find a dropshipper. Example: http://www.ebay.com/usr/shoppingspreellc
    2) Click on their "view items for sale" link
    3) Most dropshippers rip title from Amazon, so just copy a title and look it up on Amazon
    4) Use an eBay fee calculator such as: http://www.newlifeauctions.com/calc.html
    5) You now have a catalogue of 100,000 of items you can dropship between eBay and Amazon to make big profit.

    TWIST
    Amazon gives free shipping on orders over $25. You can also Use cash back credit cards to make even more profit!

    Also, you can buy add-on items such as: if you have at least $25 worth of items in your cart, and change the shipping address at checkout for each item. Cost $5 on Amazon with free shipping, selling for $8 on eBay for example

    Amazon listing:
    http://www.amazon.com/Play-Doh-2941...1&keywords=play-doh+party+bag+dough+new+-+!%2

    Ebay listing for same item:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Play-Do...77?pt=Educational_Toys_US&hash=item20e34d526d


    BONUS:

    Use Drop Kingz to automate the whole process.

    Please ask questions below.

    In the play-doh example you listed, wouldn't the shipping cost from amazon just kill the deal? It's only free shipping on orders over $35.

    I've never done dropshipping before, but I've always wanted to learn and start doing it as a way to diversify my portfolio.

    EDIT: I'm really noob at this. I just realized the the shipping on ebay would cover that lol.

    Do you mostly dropship to ebay or amazon?

    If I am reading this right... Is this the buy on Amazon, Sell on eBay method that has been posted about here alot?

    The thing you have to beware of here is someone buying items on eBay but receiving them in Amazon packaging with an Amazon Invoice for the Amazon price. The guy then leaves you negative feedback on eBay.

    This is why we need dropshippers who would send the package without any invoice in them....

    Have 1200+ 100% positive feedbacks using this method and have never had this issue. Don't send the person an invoice with their order. I have never had one person complain about the amazon box. Never had a negative feedback.

    The concept here is basically the same as the one laid out in great detail in DS Domination. Sounds great in theory, but there are a few potential issues.

    While the OP doesn't suggest using Amazon Prime to ship items, many of the people running this system do just that -- including the eBay user the OP gave as an example (shoppingspreellc). It's against the Prime terms of service to use it for resale purposes, and Amazon may (or may not) shut them down eventually. If you use Amazon's regular free shipping for purchases over $35 (not $25), shipping takes 5-8 business days after Amazon finally gets around to boxing your stuff up, and that's not going to win you any points at eBay. So you almost HAVE to use Prime, which can be dicey.

    I'd like to ask the OP if he uses Prime and if so, how long he's been doing it successfully. And if you don't use Prime, how do you handle the extended shipping times?

    By the way, if anyone questions the Amazon box, you could just say that you use Amazon FBA for your fulfillment.
