    What's your question? Are you asking how you can get started with dropshipping?

    Search on the forum dude, there is a lot of ebay related crap in here.

    As for ebay tips, gets your feedback count up, the seller ones not the buys and you should be good.

    Just a tip, if you are going to sell anything valuable, maybe $50+ I'd watch out for buyers with 0 feedback.
    I've had trouble with people who have 0 feedback bidding on my items and never paying up.

    That's why you include a forced BIN so they have to pay when they buy it now

    First do some market research like with Terapeak in order to know what you want to sell.
    The look for your source.


    Cheers

    Yeah the fees are insane and it's very competitive.
    If you can find the right things to sell then it could be well worth it.

    Unless you are a collector trying to sell, I'd advise selling only higher priced items. With several close up pictures as well.

    Do not get caught into the online trade sites selling you products for what it is already selling for on eBay.
    Find a personal supplier and get a real price.

    First of all, you should find some trustworthy company that provides dropshipping service, take a look at what they're selling, find out what you want to sell. And also, ask them about their products informations, shipping time, payment method, etc. Then you'll be able to make your mind. And you should know that generally membership is free.

    I'm dealing with one Chinese website, pretty good I think. I found it through their ad, and I did some research, I think Alexa ranking would helps a lot.

    Guys remember to do due research before checking out any drop shippers or products.
    Without proper research products are worthless. I can find a brown paper bag cheaper than anyone and list it.
    But would it sell?
