    I have been mostly a lurker on this site but I just wanted to make this journey thread as a step to become more active here. I fucking love making money on internet. I made my first dolla loong time back during school on the donkeymails thing. Since then I have been hooked on this idea of making money from my bedroom.

    I have known about the Amazon to Ebay method for a while now, but didn't really give it a shot until last month. And I decided to take action on this.

    I started researching products where I could bank and then put a few listings on ebay. I was really dissapointed when I saw I can only do 10 listings a month. I almost gave up, but then I decided to go ahead and see for myself how far can I go. To my luck, I made my first sale within 2 days. Then in the same week I made another sale on another product. I had a total of 5 different products and only 2 seemed to get attention. So I removed the useless ones and increased quantities for the ones that were sold.

    In about 3 weeks I have sold total of $780 of products and made $170 profit. Considering I am not a pro, I am happy with these numbers. I just found out that I can make 3 more ebay accounts attached to same Paypal. I am going to go ahead and make another account, experiment with some new products. (Correct me if I am wrong about the multiple accounts)

    I have been mostly using Prime, not because of the free shipping but because I get the gift option and avoid the invoice. I haven't found "send as gift" option on non-prime items (Maybe someone could clarify on this).

    I am going to continue posting updates on this thread. I aint getting lazy on this.

    Cliffs
    1) Decided to try Amazon to Ebay dropship.
    2) Put few listings on ebay (0 seller feedback)
    3) Sold $780 worth product with $170 profit in 3 weeks.

    Right now my aim is to make $700 per month. I just hope Amazon doesn't put the banhammer on me. Wish me luck! :)

    Good luck with your journey! I'm doing something similar too.

    Any advice on picking items? And how long are your items on eBay for until they're sold?

    Thanks. Regarding products, I was lucky that one of my items that I selected was really in demand so its selling well. As for another one, its selling like 1 per 7-10 days. All my items are buy it now. One stays for like just 1 day and is sold, another stays for like 10 days maybe. It all varies though. Since I've been doing this only for 3 weeks, nothing can be inferred.

    You've done really well so far. How much profit are you making on each item?

    You sold brand new items dropshipped from Amazon to a brand new ebay account? When most people lose the ebay account within minutes if you list a brand new product or name brand product on a new account.
    Is the Amazon account you are using stealth or real?
    Many of us are luck to get 5-500 limits. How are you getting 100 limits on brand new accounts and ebay allowing you to sell brand new products.
    Any time I posted a new item the account went down within the hours if not minutes.

    Are you sure about the selling brand new item thing? I am just using normal account. No stealth. I had 10 item limit initially but I sold about 6 items and got 1 positive feedback. After than I got 100.

    No one will ever tell what they are selling.

    Good luck mate, very inspiring.

    You said you profited $170 out of $780. This is a great profit margin. I think key to making strategy work is by finding products with good profit margin as EBay fees (10%) + PayPal fees (3%) eat away at profits..

    Also it seems you do not need a lot of good feedback to make sales as you mentioned you used a brand new account. People will trust new accounts as long as you are delivery.

    Thanks for taking action, good luck!
