    Hey,

    I'm thinking about reselling things in Ebay. I know some sites where you can buy mobile cases, for example, for less than 1$. What I want to do is to sell the things in Ebay for a higher price and order the products from the original site directly to the buyers address.

    Has anyone experience with that? Also, is there anything important I have to do, except to create a business account and to mention that the order will be shipped from another country?

    I think you are talking about dropshipping. This is a common practice. There are even threads on here that talk about Amazon to Ebay dropshipping.

    Yes, thousands of people do this already. You haven't exactly discovered the wheel here.

    You might not want to mention that. eBay frowns upon the practice and if buyers find out that your order is being shipped from China, nothing is going to stop them from ordering directly from China.

    I always go bargain hunting for things I need to purchase, when I find the cheapest price I can on the internet, whatever I purchased for myself I resell on ebay or amazon.

    2 Birds 1 stone, also try department and closeout stores, use your phone to check the prices of things, and after a while you get a good idea of what you can and can't sell for a profit. I make a few hundred extra bucks with little effort every week or so whenever I go to Ross.

    Wheel in the sky keeps on turning - but this wheel has been turning for years -
    Drop Shipping on eBay is tricky - you need to upload 100's of products, watch your fee's and s\h to the customer
    and watch other prices of same product - and test everything (sometimes go real high on price cause people are
    stupid and think that it must be the real thing) and do things like that.
