    Recently I have been thinking about drop shipping on ebay but I have a few questions as I am a noob to this.

    1. Do I have to be in the US to make an account (or have to put a us address)?
    2. Do I need any tax number or something like that?
    3. what would be a good percentage to put on items?
    4. any other advise that you think may be relevant.

    Not unless they ask you for more information but usually no
    2. Do I need any tax number or something like that?
    No taxes that i know of
    3. what would be a good percentage to put on items?
    What you would like to make is what i should say. Just make it reasonable and
    compatible with other sellers so people actually gain interest in buying your product

    4. any other advise that you think may be relevant.
    Don't sell fake stuff that doesn't even work pisses both customer and ebay off and thats never good

    Sometimes ebay will suspend your account for no reason. Sometime they suspend it just to verify you.

    your ID, pic & some billing info. This because they want to verify you and your account are real since there are also scammer there.

    I do. For me, its not a problem as I'm seeing other seller doing it too.
