    Is this allowed? I could not figure this out. I have done amazon to ebay for few weeks now with profit margins of as much as $70 on some products but I am hesitant towards this method as I don't want to get banned on Amazon.

    My question is instead of buying from amazon and then shipping directly to buyer through amazon, can I just buy from ebay and then ship it directly to buyer through ebay?

    Also, it feels damn good to be back on BHW after almost 2 years :p. Been very sick.

    Good to hear that. Hope you are good. I dont quite understand what you are asking. I have tried Amazon to Ebay but I don't want to get banned since its against their ToS. I was asking if buy on ebay->sell on ebay is possible.

    I've done it. Just make sure you can send it as gift to avoid buyer seeing invoice. The good thing is they tend to have faster ship times to avoid negs as well. I used a seller that has their own site and sells on azon. I found out they sold cheaper on eba for some items so I went that way. They didn't send as gift through eba though. Had to call eba and fight some negs because they whined about the price they paid versus invoice.

    excuse me but how do you get the seller to ship to an address other than yours besides there is a limit to how many times you can change your address! :confused:

    The problem you're going to have is that the sellers who you're trying to buy from are going to think that you are trying to scam them by shipping to an un-approved paypal address so you're going to get reported for fraud. I see no long term way to avoid this.

    Probably better to receive from eBay > get rid of the invoice > then quickly send it to the eBay buyer. You'll have to choose next-day delivery from eBay, to save some headaches.
