    So I found a Product on Ebay that I would like to drop ship from Ebay to my website store and charge a higher price. But I know with paypal and Ebay you can only ship to your own address. Is there any possible way I can make it work? I would really appreciate the knowledge of someone who has drop shipped products from Ebay or currently does. Thanks

    Either find the product somewhere like Alibaba/Express etc or else just PM the eBay seller and explain that you would like to purchase away from eBay. If you do, negotiate a discount as eBay charge around 10% commission..

    At your own risk, you could say you want to dropship. The eBay seller may not like that..

    yea they have the same product for the same price on aliexpress, but the last and only time I purchased from them my credit card info was stolen and my bank contacted me of all these suspicious blocked international charges, and ended up having to get new CC #, so I kind of don't trust the site now.

    Wouldn't you be able to change your ebay account settings "Primary shipping address: Your main shipping address for purchases" and change it to the address you would like it shipped to?

    I simply wouldn't recommend that. Would be an absolute disaster plus eBay would probably spot this and then just ban your ass because it's their favourite pastime, after raping sellers through fees.

    You should probably use PayPal for those sites. Also, if the seller doesn't have PayPal it's more than likely the case that they did have an account and screwed around and got kicked by PayPal.

    I'd give those sites another go, just do your due diligence and you should be fine.
