Drop Shipping on eBay... I Need Help...

I recently started drop shipping on eBay and I currently use Amazon as my only supplier.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any other reliable websites that I could drop ship from?

I'm sure many are familiar with DS Domination and drop shipping between eBay and Amazon. Amazon is relatively easy to drop ship with as they can keep the pricing out of the package that is being delivered to the customer.

Are there any other websites that can enable me to ship direct to customers that purchase directly from my eBay store?

I would appreciate any help or feedback with this. Thank you,

    I am in the DS Domination Program You can find many drop shippers just doing a search on google. But it depends on what you want to sell. Do a search for the country you are selling from I am in Canada but ship all my stock from the USA and sell In The USA its a bigger market. so without knowing what you are looking for I cannot help you much..

      Thank you Robert Bridgen. Well I took a look a DS Domination and as you know, there really is nothing in particular that I'm selling. I simply search and list items that are selling well through other sellers on eBay.

    when I used to dropship on ebay I used a website called tmart.com

    I really like them because unlike other dropshipping companies based in china, they have warehouses in the United States.

    So, the customer would receive they product quicker and leave positive feedback.

    I drop shipped iphone replacement products.

    So I recommend tmart.

      TMart is yet another retail site that competes with those who use them for dropshipping.

      There are hundreds of people who would definitely NOT recommend TMart.

      Have a look at the complaints here www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.tmart.com

      and here Ripoff Report | tmart.com Search of Complaints & Reviews

      Many people dropship simply because they believe the myth that buying inventory direct from manufacturers in China requires a huge amount of capital.

      That is simply not true. I have taught hundreds of people how to buy small quantities direct from genuine manufacturers in China and other countries and make massive profit margins. Many have started with as little as $300.

      Ds domination is a program of how you find selling products on Amazon and resell them on eBay to make a profit. The training is how you find the products that are selling Then you get Amazon to drop ship the goods to the customer
      Hope this helps

  • Oh, man.

    There are soooooooooo many people here that know about DS Domination. (Just look at all of the people peddling their services as an agent instead of selling products. It's an MLM where a lot of people post 'sign up under me' signature links.)

    It has been lambasted over and over again on the forum.

    Here's the issue:

    1, the whole premise of the program is a violation of the terms of service on Amazon. You WILL get shut down.

    2, the market price for an item fluctuated daily on Amazon, so you'll never know your profits (if you make a profit.)

    3, the items you sell will generally generate miniscule profits.

    4, fulfilling from Amazon to eBay is a big red-flag for eBay buyers. You can tell it came from Amazon, which automatically make a buyer think: "Hey, I could have gotten this cheaper on Amazon!" Bam. Negative feedback. This makes it nearly impossible to obtain/retain top-rated powerseller status to get the 20% FVF discount.

    However, I am grateful to DS Domination. They give me a LOT of business. I probably get 2 people daily sign up for my program from them. The first thing they say is, "So, I signed up for DS Domination and sure enough, I was shut down." Or, "Hey, I am a member of DS Domination and it's just not working."

      What he said...

      If you are serious about ever having an online business in your life, then you might want to be very careful here. Amazon is NOT the same as eBay in their approach to "problem" sellers. If Amazon bans your seller account, you are banned for life.

      Now, I'm not promoting hyperbolic fear-mongering with this, I'm just attempting to make you think before you act. Amazon doesn't do forgiveness. So, before you violate their terms of service with a business idea "That can't fail" (until it does), you may want to re-consider before burning a very important bridge. At least do some research about people whom came before you and tried to follow this "brilliant" business model.

      If you're going to build a drop-shipping business (or something bigger) then take advice from AuctionDebtEliminator and build something viable that will last and will actually show a profit.

      Do what you want, the ecommerce world always has room for more people that need to learn the hard way. But if you pursue this, do it while asking yourself just one question -- if this is so easy and so profitable, how come everyone is not doing it?

        Thank you for the endorsement Hermes! I appreciate it.

        There are other issues that I haven't mentioned with the model.

        It's also against eBay's TOS. Items need to be listed with their LOCATIONS. If they aren't, you listings/account can be taken down. It's not always practical to know where all your items are located.

        Instead, you state YOUR location (or somewhere else) and eBay gets a little.........concerned.

        Also, I talked to a Customer Service agent at Amazon to ask them about it. (During my own, independent vetting of the process.) She stated that if there is a return, Amazon, many times, is contacted.

        They gather information about the customer to process the return. The agent then looks at the account of the person generating the return. 100% of the time it is NOT the person buying the item that wants to return it.

        Huge. Red. Flag.

        This happens whether or not the item is a 'gift.'

    I recently created an account at Doba. I refused to insert my card information and closed the site. Today they called my cell phone I provided during registration and offered me a 2 week trial period with 50% off membership fees after. I still am getting used to it, as I am new to drop-shipping, but as I gain more experience I will let you know my thoughts. Just thought I would let you know about the 2 week free trial!
