    A couple of questions;

    If you are selling on Ebay why did amazon get the returns? Did ebay customer return to you and then you returned to amazon?? Or did they return directly to amazon because of the packaging?

    What was the reason for the returns??

    Do you use your Amazon Prime account to get discounted and free shipping to your ebay customers??

    Why, oh why, do people still try to dropship this way? Why don't you find a real supplier and then you will not have these problems.

    To answer your question, of course it is a risk. What you are doing is a violation of not only Amazon rules, but also the rules of your payment processor.

    Amazon to Ebay is one of the worst eCommerce models ever conceived of. It was created for people who are too lazy to get a real supplier and for customers who are too dumb to realize they are getting ripped off. It's a model designed to fail from the start and not something to build a real business around.

    Dave is right. The absolute worst model for an online business. And, using prime can and probably will cost you your account at some point

    If you are going to dropship, why not use ali express. you can get the same products and probably cheaper

    I should also add that buying at retail and then selling to someone for an even higher price is NOT dropshipping. It is called arbitrage and it is the weakest form of arbitrage.

    To answer your first question. It's a great idea try contacting them to find out what happened. At least you made the effort to ask for help in the right place. You have nothing to lose. Hopefully you will get paid.

    Hey Dave, Actually, I'm one of the customers who actually appreciate the vendors who do this. It means competitive prices and really fast shipping, without having to pay for Prime. If/when I have an active prime subscription, it is cheaper to buy directly from Amazon, but I don't order enough to make it worth my while most of the time. So I go to eBay, which is quite competitive, and way faster than non-Prime Amazon, including their marketplace vendors.

    Even the ones who don't drop ship from Amazon. But the drop shippers... turbo speed. There are only a few products I buy that way though, and I've found the suppliers who deliver fast ;-)

    I don't understand that answer. Before I had amazon Prime, the threshold for free shipping was $35...I could always add on a couple of household or personal items (that I would buy offline anyway) and reach the 'free' level.


    Why would you pay a markup OVER the Amazon price? Might as well pay for shipping.
