    Hello,

    I'm new to the site and dropshipping so please forgive me if I come across as naive. For the past few months I have been trying to understand how people take items from aliexpress and sell them on ebay. When I look at the prices on ebay, they are far cheaper than the prices on aliexpress. There's no way that the ebay sellers are making a profit if they're using aliexpress. So this makes me think that they're not using aliexpress. Instead, they're using another source for wholesale shopping. As I stated, I've been doing research for months on different ways to make money from home. I am in a tough situation. Without going into a sob story I'll just say that I'm not in a position where leaving the home to work is an option. I just recently finished college and now that I have a loan to pay back I need an income. I figured a good way to make money would be to buy low and sale high on ebay. But I can't seem to find a place where anyone lists real wholesalers or even suggests ways to do it. I figured dropshipping would be ideal but when I did my research months ago I ran into a lot of websites I felt were scams. I don't have much money to invest so I can't make mistakes. If you could point me into the right direction it would be great. I'm not new to ebay. I've sold more than a few things. Everything I list sales within a week. I have a 333 rating and I'm sitting at 100%. I have about $200 to invest in selling but I don't know where to buy the inventory or what dropshipper to trust. Any and all advice would be helpful.

    Thank you.

    P.S. I also read on here where people post products from Amazon on Ebay to make a profit. I'm not understanding how this is done and I'm struggling to find more information about it. The reason I don't understand how it's done is because when I compare prices from Amazon to Ebay they are either exactly the same or less on Ebay. So once again, how are people making a profit? Also, wouldn't this be risky since you are basically spending money before receiving the payment? How do you handle returns, requests to cancel, and so on?
