    Hello,

    I've been thinking about using my eBay seller account to sell items via dropshipping. However, I'm always worried that I will sell an item, pay the supplier, and then they never ship the item to the buyer. I would prefer to hold onto the money from the sale until the buyer receives the item, then send it over to the supplier. However, most people don't want to do it like this because they're worried they will ship the item and never receive the money from me.

    So I was wondering if there's any kind of escrow service that I can send the money to from the sale. Then, once we confirm the buyer receives the item(s) from the shipper, the escrow service can release the funds to the supplier. Anyone know of any such service???

    Thanks in advance!

    Work with reputable suppliers. Suppliers also think they'll ship and you won't pay later. It all comes down to trusting each other. Other than that escrow is always an alternative.

    Yes, trust is hard for me to do sometimes LOL. If I'm dealing with a reputable company, it's easier for me. However, when I'm dealing with a random person from BHW it's a little harder for me to trust so easily. Do you have any recommendations for a escrow company?

    Thanks again!
