Well I am moving to China on the next 8 of October and Will be mainly doing this! and wholesale as well if you guys need something just pm me
Brilliant idea but how did you manage this because Amazon requires dispatch within 2 business days? This is one of TOS to sell on Amazon.co.uk
Also which niches did you find more suitable for this? i.e. electronic accessories, health aids etc
Nice method. Now multiply by 100* get yourself a warehouse and shipping crew and you got yourself a solid import/export business you can bank on.
You don't need start up cash dude. If the guy from amazon provides you with the cash, you can use that to buy the ebay thing. I actually tried it and unfortunately it didn't work. Life sux lull
The idea is very good, but you could get banned from amazon at some point, I have been selling on ebay for 10 years, I did abit of dropshipping from china before and it was a headache. Now if you use ebay as the dropshipping source then it makes it abit safer because you can checkout their feedback and so forth. But the problem lies with amazon, you would have to go slowly at first and then there is no guarantee amazon will ban you for something, these days you really have to do your own thing to make it big in the long run, dont rely on these selling platforms, they are becoming stricter by the day..
dispatch time is different then delivery time, dispatch time is how many days before the customer pays the item untill the seller sends the item out, delivery time is how many days it takes to get the item from the time it was dispatched
nice method m8! thanks for sharing
The item from ebay is shipped to you or directly to the buyer?
Why didn't it work for you?
My question "Why didn't it work for you?" was for Name.
The concept should work, the key is to make sure your ebay hong kong seller has very good feedback, otherwise you will be being given refunds and not getting any sleep
I would mark the item as 'Dispatched' as soon as i had placed the order on ebay.
You do, on Ebay you buy with paypal and on Amazon it takes around 2 weeks to get your first payment as they verify you etc,.
The item is shipped directly to the buyer. Like i said in the original post you have to state to the ebay seller not to include any billing or invoice info in the notes at checkout.
This is the amazon two week payment holds answer
''When you sell an item, ship it, and confirm the shipment, we deposit the money into your Payments account. Every two weeks, the funds in your Payments account are settled and a disbursement is initiated to transfer funds into your bank account. After an initial 14-day hold, sellers can also request more frequent disbursements from their Payments account. You can request manual disbursements once every 24 hours through the "Get Paid" section in the Seller Account.''
Im not that familiar with amazon, so maybe I can just sell a few cheap items at first so I dont have to front so much money to send the item out because amazon is holding my money, Does amazon hold my first payment for 2 weeks, then I can request the 24 hour release after two weeks, please explain..
How many days do you have to wait before amazon sends your funds to your bank account. I read that at first its 2 weeks then after that every 7 days, is that correct?
