    Very accurate rumor. Trust me I've worked closely with some guys who were putting up real numbers. Best bet now is to source items from china suppliers and sell inventory you are holding.

    Hahaha thanks man!

    Yeah she was pretty pissed as I didnt tell her I spent a huge chunk of my (our - in her view) money on dildos and penis pumps etc, she thought I had lost my mind :D

    They could be, I honestly dont know - however in my view, if you have solid enough suppliers, then I do not see how they could spot it - IMO the art of good dropshipping is that your customers do not know their products are dropped shit, it should be as if they ordered from any other website that holds inventories. Hence why I stayed away from China and sourced local UK dropshippers, with good reviews and service.

    Some may say, I dont know any dropshippers local to my target audience, however a lot of small to medium size business out there will happily dropship for you if you can show you generate traffic and sales. After all they will make money too, just make sure you are professional in your approach and negotiate well.

    Thanks for sharing the journey, for clarification Ebay are cracking down on the Arbitrage dropshippers, those who buy from retailers like Amazon or other major retailers and sell on Ebay, not dropshippers per se

    Hope this helps

    @TheRumBarron - I'd like a list of where you got your suppliers too.

    Also, are there any useful tools, plugins or themes that your used to help easier manage everything?

    that's accurate. there were a couple of things this post mentioned they did with eBay dropshipping that wouldn't work today - such as giving a link to a website outside of eBay.

    ebay is not cracking down dropshipping unless you failed to prove the proper invoices and PO. my ebay account got banned due to selling digital product but failed to do that. Don't try it, once they flag you , it is almost the end.

    to OP, you can start again for the dropshipping part though. Just that the Sex toy part is not able to do fb ad LOL

    Great post OP! I'm thinking about getting started with dropshipping and I wanted to ask: Do you have any opinions on websites that do automated ordering, posting, etc.?
