    Hello guys,

    I'm dropshipping on eBay for about 2 years now. Everything was running smoothly with a progress every month until this April. After the last eBay upgrade (store and catalog) I started losing sales. I have a great drop of something around 50%. Do you experience the same?

    I've tried a couple of fixes but nothing helped till now:
    1) Changed shipping from address to be the same as the one on the listings
    2) Made all listings promoted with 1%
    3) Change the promoted listing percentage to 3-5.
    4) Add a lot of product to the buybox

    While I still keep listing new items on daily basis and removing the ones which does not sell. No results till now. Actually I'm starting to wonder if I will manage to beat the problem?

    Do you have any other suggestions on how to get the sales back to normal?

    I do not drop ship.... but i read a recent article claiming that Ebay was throttling sales from Amazon to Ebay arbitrage dropshippers.

    i can confirm that ebay was and still throttling dropshippers in the search engine -CASENI-... its not the dropshipping business, but the way that those dropshippers use ebay, to list, track, and manage the inventory...
    so, try to list some items manually without using 3rd party apps....
