    Hey guys i wanted to find more information on how i could get started reselling/dropshipping on ebay. I have a 1.5 year old ebay account with great feedback. Should i trust any listings on freelancer? i have heard of the lego scam and have encountered someone who wants me to do that, but other then that i have received a couple more realistic offers.

    thanks!

    The first step is to do some market research and know what Niche you want to target.

    Cheers

    PS: I run a decent eBay business so if you have any questions let me know.

    I used to resell drop shipped clothing on Ebay pretty successfully. Watch out for knock-offs though - they crack down hard on it. I'd say check out AliBaba for some decent chinese manufacturers. That's where I looked.

    Don't forget to buy local. I know of a person that buys all his merchandise locally at different resale/discount shops. Some products at Dollar Tree can be found selling on eBay at a hefty(huge...) mark-up. Research - Research and more Research

    Happy Holidays

    I came into contact with two potential employers on freelancer. I have heard of many people being scammed in similar situations, but i wanted to run these by you guys to see if they are safe. I would be selling OEM beats by Dre, and make a flat rate of $10-15 per headphone sold. Much more believable than those "30%"commission scams, plus the sellers will use paypal for all transactions, so no western union.

    Do you guys think it is safe?
    thanks!

    What is the feedback on your account? I doubt those are real OEM Beats at all...Probably replicas and your
    account is going to get suspended if you do not handle them right.

    I would not go in that direction with a legit account like that.

    Alright, yea you are probably right. What direction would you recommend i go in?
    I found another wholesaler who operates and ships from right here in the U.S. They claim to be licensed and authorized to sell DVD's Box Sets, video games, etc.[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] I haven't talked to them about specifics, but this definitely seems like a legitimate operation. Other then that, what do you recommend?

    If you do want to play the game of selling those "OEM Dre Beats" Then I would suggest doing it with a stealth account since
    if something does mess up you do not loose your real account over it. Next find other lower risk products.

    Cheers
