    what kind of operations are these people running to sell thousands of products??? I know they dropship...but do they have 50 emplyees and computers going at once?? Just curious...what it takes for a monster ebay operation like that...or is it all bs purchased feedbacks? Who r these powersellers with 30K transactions??!

    To be a powerseller you only need to do 1K of biz a month, maybe less now as they changed rules.

    Maybe dropship or maybe legit biz, who knows. A lot of feedback etc. can be automated.

    Have you found a drop ship source or do you have your own products you'll fullfill?

    I know a guy that parts out 1 or 2 cars a month and sells the parts on ebay. He's a power seller and does it all on his own

    I had a neighbor who did it with just him and his wife. Instead of drop shipping they would import a pallet of good. They had a regular storage unit to hold the inventory and automated pretty much everything from billing to feedback so he said it was something like an hour on the computer then another hour or two between packaging the orders and shipping. A lot more post offices now have that automated machine you can use 24/7 to mail stuff which makes waiting on line a thing of the past.

    I'm currently an ebay powerseller and I don't dropship... infact it's a hassle because I stock 100% of my items, that's why I'm looking for other more passive ways to make money. I basically run a retail operation out of my house.. it's not glamorous.

    I hired part time help last summer and that was annoying because they messed up a lot of packages not paying attention to details.. so maybe i'll hire someone else with atleast a half of brain next time lol

    edit: It's pretty easy to become a powerseller too there are several levels.
