    Yes, it's known as drop-shipping there are many sellers on eBay doing the same and many larger sellers have warehouses in many different countries and are shipping from all over the place.

    And is there any instruction how to list on ebay by this way?
    You know under listing there is written item location. I can't find option for that. It's just default depending on my adress on ebay

    You can change the item location when you make the listing , you ll see that option there.And its compatible with ebay tos of course , you can have an item listed with location different than your countries location

    There's no reason you need to change the location. If the customer ask you question about the product then you can tell them you are having your vendor ship it. I would keep all your listing coming from the same location as some buyers don't like it that you drop ship. Especially if your vendor runs into problems.

    It just all really depends! Drop Shipping can be really awesome or a nightmare as well. When I first started my business I used drop shipping because I had no money. I grew that business to about a 250-450 a week business. After that I went into other projects, and started selling myself as well. I still use a drop shipper but the real important thing is to have a "relationship" with that person. This is super important! Ok well I hope that helps a little bit! If you have any questions just let me know! :)

    Right! It's all about gaining that relationship with the person, but even then there is only so much you can do! Just be careful out there, and make sure that your getting tracking, and uploading it in a timely manner! Also you just should get a sample product of your drop shippers product so you can know how the quality is!

    Any good drop shipper wouldn't mind doing this if he/she was serious about doing business!
