    You can use the search button about this subject and get a lot of information on it. How ever read Amazon's terms of service or your account will shut down permanently. If you do violate them.

    It works great if you can find a whole lot of very stupid people who will pay more to buy it from you than they can buy it anywhere else for. Basing a business model on people who are too dumb to price check is not the greatest business model - especially when they will undoubtedly see a whole lot of results and prices from Google Shopping that are lower than yours before they even click on your listing.

    That, and the fact that it is against Amazon's TOS should be enough to cause you to run the other way. It is also against the TOS of every single payment processing company that I know of.

    I've never known anybody who was successful with this model. At least none who said they were that weren't selling a course in how to do it.

    Why not do this the right way and get the actual manufacturer or distributor to dropship for you? Not only will you get real wholesale prices that way, but you'll spend far less time explaining to customers why your products always arrive in an Amazon box.

    This question is a reverse of yesterday's question asking about 'dropshipping' from Amazon to ebay.

    Read Dave's answer - it's the truth. When you ask a question - no guarantee you will like the answers. If you ask about a bad idea - people will tell you it's a bad idea.

      I suppose that I should have added that if you are marking up the prices on Amazon, there are bound to be quite a few places that are actually getting true wholesale prices that are competing against you on Ebay.

      It's a great business model to sell a course on because it takes out the most difficult barrier to dropshipping, which is getting a supplier. Of course people will be attracted to any model that is easy. Doesn't mean it actually works but hey, it works great for the people selling the course!

    but drop shipping on ebay can be done with little money
    if you have an aged ebay account that is not in paypal jail
    if you are out of paypal jail you can start with $30 or so to pay the paypal store fee

    if not I recommened starting with about $500
    Once someone buys then youc an go buy it. WHen you upload the tracking number to paypal, they will then release the money..

    Drop shipping on amazon isnt that easy. Amazon only pays out every two weeks

    Its an easy way to start on ebay but not really sustainable. Lots of labor for low profits. You can get started with no money for inventory. And yes there are tons of people doing this already so you'll probably get lost in the masses. And there are a lot of unique problems associated with this "business " model
