    So I am was looking at a couple products today on the all powerful eGay and saw a lot of bids at the end of auctions being pretty low but also some high (almost $200). Anyways I was wondering if anyone has placed an auction on eGay and then once the person purchased the product from you you actually find an auction ending soon for the same product at a lower price and purchase but send to their address instead of yours...

    I guess this called be all-in-one drop shipping using eGay and product sellers. So what do you think about the idea and anyone have experience? I am thinking I can make an extra $200-350 a week using this method but would really like past experiences. Have a good night guys and girls.

    Can't say I've tried that an good way to think outside the box. Once they banned my affiliate account (still don't know why) I haven't used them much.

    Guess my only concern would be IF you can always ship to a different addy? Sometimes I've seen vendors (not necessarily ebay) that will only ship to the paypal address of record.

    I think if that happens then you can always send it to your address and then ship from there... do that one price shipping packaging and hope for the best. I think I am going to try to come up with some extra cash this way and WILL report on it. Also since I have the PayPal debit card then it will be easy to receive my profits daily and put it under the mattress ha. We keep it hood from where I am from... find cash in your sock that you completely forgot you had ;)

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    You can do it with people selling in bulk, and you breaking it down and selling eaches.

    finding those that are not using good keywords for the product they sell and also not having a high enough resurve to make it happen can be tough to do long term.

    direct shipping will kill you when they find out you just bought it on ebay. People will kill you on the quality scores.
