You got banned because of multiple refunds doing this method. I'd say that's something you should go into more detail with for people who want to try this. It's a pretty important factor don't you think?
He got banned for doing too many refunds on eBay, as eBay used to count refunds as an automatic defect. eBay changed their policy and does not do that anymore as long as customer initiated refund is processed without customer having to call in eBay or Paypal.
Yes I used to just send money to there PayPal but one day I had a lot of items ordered when it was out of stock and marked all the orders as refunded on eBay thinking it won't matter, became a below standard eBay seller straight away.
When you say thinking way too much are you meaning on what to find to sell on ebay from amazon? I purchased profit spy and have been listing items for the last 3 weeks in US dollars at prices that would make me $4-5 profit if they sell and haven't sold anything. I have put free shipping, expedited, in my listings and have put in as much detail as I can in the listing itself, but still nothing. I have tampered down on what I am putting on ebay because I can't afford the listing fees when nothing sells. How do you get over this "thinking way too much" on what will sell and won't sell? I have listed toys, coffee and coffee makers, vitamin supplements, kitchen items, bathroom items. Any suggestions?
Yes, people over thinking what types of items to sell is the main one. Truth is pretty much every category of product sells. I don't look at the item and think if it would sell I'll look at the listings and see what sales and prices it has then decide if it would sell.
I know it's not what you want to hear but using software and just listing whatever for $5 profit isn't going to get you anywhere. Type one of your products in eBay and think if you were a buyer would you choose yours over the guys at the top.
Still don't understand how you narrow down to find the items. You just say 'copy other dropshippers' but you either need to already know other dropshipper's usernames or the specific items they are dropshipping so thusfar it is a chicken or the egg thing.
Can you elabourate on how you gain the first thread as to what or who you are looking for because your current explanation assumes you already know your way around the block and know what or who to look up; which people just starting in the DS game like myself do not.
Hey, thanks for posting this. I've just started and I have a limit of 10 items that I can sell per month, do you recommend that I list 10 items with 1 quantity each until I can increase my limit? and what quantity number do you recommend once I have a higher limit on listing?
I would list one of the high competition products at a 50p loss so they probably sell within the day or the next day.
On my old account I could list a lot so I would start new listings at 5 and proven sellers at like 10-15.
Don't know what you mean by this but sounds like you're making excuses
How often did you make new amazon (prime) accounts? I assume amazon has banned you for reselling several times.
First, I want to say thanks again for your reply on my other thread, now another question for yourself; you said previously, ebay banned users for refunding their clients(the same way you got banned). In the future (if you do/continue) this again, how would you approach the situation of the amazon user being out of stock of an item and someone already purchased it from your ebay store?
Also did you make an eBay store? or just post listings?
They don't ban you for refunding a customer, obviously there are going to be refunds but if you refund too much and are higher than a certain percentage of refunds to sales then they will put your account in below standard. Every time the stock went out of amazon I just made up an excuse to the buyer and sent them money through paypal, I just got lazy and refunded everyone through ebay one day that's why I got banned.
I made a store yes but it isn't required
What happen to the text? It was like 5 paragraphs?
