    Hi

    I wonder if there is any ebay bot out there that makes it possible to automatically place orders with my dropship-supplier when someone buys from me on ebay?
    Like if someone buys a sweater from me, this bot will take the adress and all info needed for the order and order this on my suppliers website?

    eBay has an API enabling you to tightly integrate with their systems and automate your selling. http://developer.ebay.com/common/api/

    I've done a lot of eBay development in the past (including the kind eBay don't allow through the API) and its fairly trivial to do what you are looking for. Just nail out an exact description for what development you need done, the eBay stuff is widely known but your suppliers websites may quite different. I should expect you'd need to spend more than $100 on a freelancer website to get the dev work done.

    I'm happy to advise/answer questions, just too busy to do the dev work ;o)

    I did this exact same thing for a client, the issue with this is I don't think ebay policies allow this. You could get banned from eBay if you get caught. But your best bet is to write this in a more detailed explantion and findsomeone at freelancer.con
