    Hey guys, I'm pretty new to all this Internet Marketing Business.
    I wanted to start off with Ebay/Amazon Drop Shipping.

    What is it mean to dropship?

    I know that you need to get items from Amazon and put it up on Ebay, but I have no money to invest so how can I start without investing?
    I don't have a bank account, only a Paypal so I will need to get payed in Paypal only.

    I was wondering if you buy the product from Amazon and sell it on Ebay?
    Is that correct or am I doing something wrong.
    Can someone explain me what it means? and How I can do it?

    Drop shipping doesn't require investment nor an inventory.

    When someone buys through you, you get the money, and then you place an order with your drop shipper who ships the item to the customer. There are of course systems to simplify this, but in a nut shell, that is what drop shipping refers to.

    Oh I'm kind of catching on!
    So you get a sale from ebay and you use that money to send the item to the person who bought it with amazon?
    Does amazon accept paypal?
    How can I drop ship only with paypal

    Finding items in one market and selling them for more expensive in another market.

    Example: Item A sells for $40.00 on ebay, but you can get it for $20 on Amazon. You sell it on eBay for $40, and then go to Amazon and buy it for $20 and have it sent right to the buyer and make $20 profit (fees excluded for this example). Talk to me if you've got any more questions. Skype in signature.
