Amazon And Ebay Arbitrage

Profile picture of the author Joint Venture Capital by Joint Venture Capital Posted: 03/19/2013
Hey guys I see some products where I can buy on amazon then resell on ebay for profit.
My question is when I get an ebay order then I go to amazon to buy the product, if I put my buyer's address info will the buyer see what I paid for the item? thanks

    I think so, I buy stuff from Amazon all the time, and it comes with a packing slip.

    Update: Just checked a packing slip and it has the product number and where to return it to. Someone could easily send it back to Amazon for a refund, then file a charge back with the C.C company. Amazon packages come marked and with receipt to the purchase.

    so if the buyer see that I paid a much lower price than he paid wouldnt he want a refund then go buy it from amazon himself?

    I wonder if there is a way to hide what I paid. I mean what if I was buying it for someone as a gift. I would not want them to know what I paid for it

    Just a suggestion.

    You can resell a lot easier services on eBay. Simply get some service from Fiverr and sell it for profit on eBay.

    I bought my daughters Christmas gifts from Amazon as a gift, they just put the packing slip in a yellow Amazon envelope

    Very risk method. I've done it before, and the time spent to make it work could be well spent creating a much more stable and profitable concept.

    I just think of the reverse logistics if the item I sold on Amazon, that I sourced post-sale from eBay came in not as described, defective or late how it would mess up my DSR starts or Amazon rating.

    Furthermore, if you drop ship it directly and input their address you lose out on capturing that customer for repeat orders and going directly to your suppliers on eBay. I remember a few customers get pretty pissed too whey they receive a package from some eBay seller with an invoice for a lower amount.

    Even minor, non-infraction complaints from an eBay or Amazon customer or repeat "fruitless claims" have been known to freeze PayPal and suspend Amazon and eBay accounts when an issue does come up.

    I don't know. It just seems like so much work to manage things you're not 100% in control of and doesn't make the best sense for the long haul.
