    I'm currently drop shopping with Amazon to eBay and it's definitely working. But I'm only making around £2.50/$3.8 profit per item. Is that normal? Or should I be aiming higher?

    I understand no one with a great profit product will tell me (rightly so) but I was wondering if anyone has some tips for finding better items?

    Thanks.

    Basically, i think you need to get around 6 to 10 dollars net income per sell. Check out Nonozama.com.

    Go to amazon and look at best sellers for your product niche and go to ebay to see if selling... i have been dropshipping on ebay since 05 msg your questions here.

    I've had a bit of success with pet related products. People seem more willing to drop money on their pets than their kids (judging from my toy sales vs pet toy/food/accessory sales). Take the time to scour Amazon's every category. Maybe try listing a few items from each category/sub category to see what sells best for you. Yes, that's a ton of listings, but sadly, putting in those hours and getting a feel for what sells/doesn't is the best way.

    As Dagreton mentions, aiming for $6-$10 profit per sale is ideal. But if you're actually making profit, you're ahead of the curve either way. For the time being, while you figure out what to sell for more money, maybe scale up a bit so you're selling more things for a $3 profit. I'd rather sell 2 things for $3 profit than 0 things for $6 profit.

    EDIT: for spelling

    Somehow, I'm not surprised by this. I'll definitely look in to this. Thanks for the advice guys.

    A good way to find products is to paste the Amazon product titles into eBay and find exact matches, then check that sellers other items or shop.

    You will then cross check more of that eBay sellers products and quickly see if they are using this method, if they are take there best sellers and highest profit margin products from them and rinse and repeat with more sellers.

    It's a bit naughty but it works.
