    Hey guys,

    I've just successfully sold my first item using the amazon/ebay shipping method. I know how to ship the item to the buyer using Amazon of course, it's just that I'm not sure what to do about the whole print shipping label thing on Ebay. I'm offering free shipping because of amazon prime, but I'm wondering if I need to do something about purchasing the postage or whatever it is on ebay. How do I proceed from here? can I skip that and just mark the item as shipped once amazon ships it?

    Also, do I need to check the Gift Receipt option on Amazon or is it unnecessary?

    Thanks.

    For start you can check that the item is gift,but sending 100 gifts a day will raise red flags on amazon.

    Have you read the main guide on BHW about Amazong to eBay dropshipping?

    Don't worry about the eBay USPS screen. Go to your sold section on eBay and next to the item click the little icon that brings up "leave feedback, add tracking number, refund etc" and add the tracking number that you got from Amazon. eBay will auto transfer it to PP too. If they don't then add it there as well.

    Voila!

    If you don't want to use ebay to print the shipping label you do not have too.

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah I'm not going to use the ebay shipping label.
    One last thing, should I mark the item as shipped only after amazon has shipped it or should I do it right after I make the purchase on amazon?
