    depends on the source and quality of the product . And trying to get pass ebay and paypal because sometimes they will freeze your account until the buyer receives the goods and then u cant pay the dropshipper because your paypal account is frozen . so be careful , but you can make good money if u find something besides electronics .

    I used to make at least 8 to 12k on eBay dropshipping Pianos... But that market died long time ago... With PayPal hold, it is impossible to dropship by the way... I would steer away fro that market, and find yourself a wholesaler... Drop me a line, I can bring you just about anything for cheap...

    use to be good, but now its terrible. With ebay's 21 day hold, its impossible to get your money.

    Averaging 15% after it's all said and done per sale. Don't like it much because you're ALWAYS in front of the barrel of a loaded gun. What I mean by this is that YOU have to pay the dropshipper once the customer pays you. If the customer does a chargeback, you're PHUCKED!

    What I do is get in touch with a wholesaler from your own country. This will require research. Then, list the item for sale on ebay. That way, you get to see the items and the person yourself and you know that it's authentic and all. It's also easier to negotiate deals and stuffs. :)

    Never found a dropshipper that had prices lower than what others were already selling to customers for on ebay.

    Drop shipping is never a good way to make money. U have to contact the companies and work out a deal for big purchases like 300-1k pieces of certain items to get a deal that can actually make u money but the prob with that is it takes forever to get ur item and sometimes the market for it dies before u even get it and then ur stuf with a major loss.


    Also drop shipping isnt good because when ur shipping time goes below 4.1 u wont be able to relist on ebay until ur rating goes back up....alsmo lost my powerseller status because of using focalprice.com as a dropshipper. They are crazy slow and they arent even the ones with the items...if u email them they say we will contact our supplier to check your order status and finding the actual source and not just a middleman is crazy hard. I hope no one has to deal with what i had to.

    Just depends what dropshipper you use. If you have a good one and you are a bit inventive with getting your website or auction noticed there is money to be made.

    Obviously if you have a dropshipper which i s slow and doesn't care about customer service you will struggle to get anywhere.
