    Hey guys,

    I can't seem to understand what ebay and dropshipping is all about. I read a lot of posts trying to figure out what it is.

    As I understand it, the basics are to list an item on ebay and then order it with the adress that your customer provided from an external retailer. Tell me if I'm right.

    I already sold on ebay by buying low and selling high and making nice profits. I'm looking for someone to teach me how to dropship, make money with that and hopefully to work together. Pm me or add me on skype : bl4ckdata.

    Thanks,

    B

    I tried drop shipping on ebay before and made a good amount with chinese iphone copies, however ebay began to get strict and started banning my listings. I would recommend finding products on sites like Dealextreme.com that have a good markup and are in high demand, also pick something that will not put your account at risk seeing as you are only new.

    Make sure that you keep your customers updated with tracking information and information on their order to avoid disputes/claims with Paypal, this is the last thing you want when it comes to drop shipping as from my experience Paypal and ebay dislike it.

    Good luck !
