This thread will include my ideas, plans and earning reports. My goal for week: Get motivated and build site Diary Entry #1 - Dropshipping and eBay I've sold on eBay on and off for the past few years, I encountered many suspensions, dealt with costly customs issues though I did make some VERY decent profits. Unfortunately all good things come to an end and the items I once sold are no longer in demand. I then tried the Chinese drop shipping thing with little success. 6 suspended accounts later and little profit. I realized this is going nowhere. eBay and PayPal are raking in the fee's and the supplier is getting their share while I'm stuck in the middle with the leftovers, dealing with annoying customers. Then i thought to myself, instead of being the pissed off eBay seller, I could become the supplier. Theres a shitload of shifty Chinese dropshipping sites out there but they have SCAM written all over them. The customer service speak terrible english and they only accept Western Union. Most potential customers run away scared. My plan is to become the middle man, the trusty englishman that has genuine and safe contacts in China that offers excellent customer service and safe payment options. I'm going to write an ebook and make a website. The ebook (most likely free) will be about dropshipping and ebay which will include my website as the best and most reliable dropshipping site. The site will be selling cell phones, clothes, electronics, computer parts etc. all the crap eBay sellers want. When an item gets sold. I email my wholesaler with the customers details and they send it off and I make my profit. Please comment and let me know your thoughts.
