    Hey Guys, I have started 3 months ago in dropshipping from amazon to ebay. Because I am still new, May I ask the professionals out there on how to increase my chances of sales or views ? Its been really slow recently and I start to think is it something wrong with listings. Right now I have 52 listings item now, Some of the items have a little few views.

    May I please ask for advice/tips and help from you people ? I starting to lose my motivation and really need some guidance ! Please pm me if you would like to share something with me. Or can reply on the post here. Thank you so much. Cheers people !

    You need to aim for quantity really, as 52 listings won't cut it. I usually have several thousand items for each account, and you'll need to trim the non sellers and keep adding new stock (when you're allowed to).

    Start doing bulk, or work your way towards increasing those limits.

    Hello Zennoblaster, First of all thank you so much for your reply. Well what do u mean by trim the non sellers and keep adding new stock ? And when you mentioned quantity, you mean as in I put more than 1 in the stock I have for that only listing ? or simply listing alot of different items as quantity ? Thank you so much.

    Well, I usually have listings up indefinitely (good till sold) but they renew every 30 days. If an item hasn't sold within the first cycle, I then delete it.

    For quantity I only add 1, as ebay tells the customer that it's the final one (prompts them into buying before somebody else does).

    About how many thousand per account do you list? And about how many sales do you make on a daily basis?
    If you don't mind me asking!

    Quick tip that will give you a boost and more exposure.

    Go make fb, twit, pinter, acts for your products. Gain some likes and follows.
    On the item pages in the upper right hand corner is the share icons for the three social buttons use those to link to your pages and then promote those pages and links.

    I used this exclusively for two years on one of my ebay stores and made a very nice boost in sales with this. It's simple and easy to use.

    I just starting looking into ebay a few days ago, but just researching so far. What you can do is do a search for a certain best selling item on amazon and type that product into ebay and see who is selling it at a mark up, filter the search to see what items have sold recently for them, get the asin # and list the same item. Just repeat to find sellers whose items are being sold, and you keep a list of the sold items so that you can start listing them on your ebay account too. You can use tools like profitscraper or shipdropper to find other ebayers sold items or you can do it yourself manually. Then you'll need to start listing them either manually or with a tool ( turbo lister, inkfrog, hydra-lister, etc )

    Oh and don't forget to get a repricer tool otherwise you'll end up buying high and selling low, instead of buying low and selling high.

    repricing tools: skugrid dot com or webseller.guru

    Views are not the most important thing. For selling on amazon/ebay, the most important is finding your niche area. Sure, dropshipping from 1000s of items from amazon will give you more sales, but at a much lower profit margin. I would recommend first finding a niche area, building it up, then expanding into other areas (such as dropshipping). This will give you the best of both worlds and increase your income.

    Home Page:
    It's all about the product honestly. Find a popular product that isn't saturated on eBay.
