    Hi guys. There was a lot of desinformation about dropshipping. Lot of people were saying that ebay or paypal don't allow dropshipping. In my other thread I described my story how paypal limited me and I told them I do dropshipping. Finally they released my account. Now I have questions about amazon. I've just recently created an amazon acc.
    I was thingking about using amazon fba and dropshipping companies. But again it looks like it is easier and more profitable just to dropship from retailers. Yes, according to amazon rules you can't use retailers to drop ship on amazon. Although, dropshipping from a dropshipping companies is fine. It sounds clear. But how does it work in real life? Will they ban my account if they find I dropship from retailers? Will they ask me for supplier's invoices? then what to do? to forge invoices? or tell them the truth? If they ban account, does it mean they ban a person (me) plus all the bank details etc or just an account? IS there a guide or something about products I can and I can't dropship on amazon? Tnx

    Amazon dont have any problem with drop shipping until unless you are doing it right products and client is satisfied the burden of product delivery with good faith is required !

    Why if you're making bank would you suddenly want hundreds of potential new rivals competing for your share of the market?

    Yeah but as I mentioned before according to amazon rules dropshipping from retailers is not allowed. So it is qulified as "not right products" I guess?

    I listed some Chinese products which are already in US. Just becuse it is not risky, there will be no packing slips, invoices, logos etc
    But look at what big retailers have. It is much better than the Chinese products. Most of the time it is even cheaper or similar price. While it is a well know brand in US. Actually I would prefer do both Chines and Us products. The problem is that it is hard to analyze Chinese products because they are generic most of the time plus keywords\title are also generic. So if you use some software to analyze market\competiotion you will find different products with different pictures but the same title\kewords sexy beach dress floral bla bla bla LOL

    I'm not sure because I'm newbie on amazon. But from what I understand very likely there will be the same products on amazon from other sellers. You just list it under their listing. Moreover, it is a preffered way, a,zon rep told me. He told me to do that instead of creating(dublicating) new listings. Also he said to ignore that those sellers have "brand", they bullshit. But for some products yes, you can see pic with logo on a pacckage . I suppose you have to avoid it.

    And I'm pretty such based on my experience if they have a 'brand' and a UPC tied to that item. They can get strikes against your account/item.
