    Does anyone know of any good eBay wholesale dropshipping services? Where you can actually make a decent profit off selling the items on eBay?

    I recommend dhgate and tradetang. Finding a niche is the hardest part, lots of trail and error. But once you find it, the $$$ starts rolling in. Last week I made $525 (profit), just selling 2 different kinds of products.

    that my friend I cannot tell you. It took me about nearly 6 months to find some good niches. They have over 35,000 products, just do some research.

    I just checked out their products they are all replica items made in china. I tried selling items like this a year back and the items went for high prices but eBay removed my items and claimed they were not authentic. How have you been getting around this?

    just compare things on ebay and see what their selling. Find stuff, that puts you under the radar. Not stuff like LV purses or Apple Ipod.

    He probably just looks for hot items on ebay and then checks to see if he can get the items for less on these websites then they sell on ebay for so he makes a profit. Well thats my guess anyways. I could be wrong though.

    I can't tell you what I sell, but what I recommend is this. Search for items that you think you could get away with selling replicas, not big names like apple or ipod because ebay will take these listings down. Search dhgate/tradetang find something. Have another window open with ebay searching completed listings to see what it sold for. The hardest thing is finding the niche, but once you have good items you can sell well that's when you hit the jackpot. Jordan and Nike Shox shoes used to be really good, but know its flooded with competition to only be able to make $5-$10 per sale.

    $5-$10 is good enough for poor ppl like me... :D

    But is there anything like "google trend" in the ebay?
    Where to find that "trend" or it's actually about how intelligent our brand and luck? ;)

    Wow, that's really cool of your thinking about selling on ebay but its really hard to get the unique products to sell nowadays. I can say that you are Master of DropShipping :) I totally have a look the website dhgate or tradetang, but honestly I can't see any unique products.

    I've done drop shipping and had my own stock. Doing it yourself is much more profitable. I made it my income while unemployed.

    drop shipping sucks, and you'll inevitably end up getting screwed by most drop ship companies. the only real way to make money is to take inventory and do the shipping yourself.

    I had a good relationship with my supplier. Found them off dhgate, but explained what my intentions were and developed a good relationship that shipped things promptly and neatly.

    As far as drop shipping, I also found a good drop shipper but
    few issues it has: not very high profit but lot of sell so total earning was good
    shipping sometime was late and gave lower feedback but after working with that drop shipper for few months--now we have a good understanding, very good contacts each and everyday and they take special care of mine as a high volume seller
    They really help me with every issue of return, refund if necessary---but
    what I said--if you think to get 100% or higher profit--its not for you, drop shipping not for you. in that case, getting a manufacturer is better but hard to find one directly.
