Im looking to dropship on ebay through several sources such as chinabuye, eforchina, and aliexpress. the only problem is that I've researched around 50+ products and i see every single one on ebay at only a $1 markup... or less. so... how am i suppose to compete with that? i have a few ideas but I'm not entirely sure that they will work, such as :
1. listing the item under a completely different name.
2. ordering the item myself and taking much better product photography.
3. selling the same item with my own photography and my own brand. i think this will work and will allow me to add value, but how do i do this if I'm still going to dropship the item? wouldn't it still arrive in the original box ? wouldn't the customer be mad?
4. listing the item as an auction with a higher price, to kind of "pressure" the customer into buying it and not having him think twice when he sees that buyout price is much higher.
what do you guys think? what will work? if you can give me some insight, that would be great. Ive read a couple of good posts on the forum but could still use some more information.
anyways, a lot of people have just told me to go and sell on amazon. i know 1 or 2 people that are doing great with FBA, but i personally don't have enough capital to just buy a boatload of products and send them to fulfillment warehouses...
let me know, thanks a lot warriors !
