OK, so you've been bitten by the eBay bug!
You've ransacked the attic, the basement and every other room in your home to find things to sell on eBay.
When friends and neighbors ask you where everything has gone, you tell them that you're going for the "Minimalist Look".
You've attended every Yard Sale in the area and some a lot further away.
Now your garage is so full of junk your thinking of having a yard sale of your own, but what's the point, you'd only buy it all yourself to sell on eBay.
You love eBay and you're determined to make a good living from it.
So things will have to change.
You've sold all of your unwanted belongings.
Visiting Yard Sales is taking up all of your spare time and your income from eBay does not match the effort you're putting in.
What you really need is someone who will:-
Give you access to a product that has a good profit margin.
Stock that product for you.
Mail the product to your customer when you make a sale.
Sounds like a tall order doesn't it?
Yet this exactly what you get when you use a wholesaler who also dropships.
So what exactly is Dropshipping?
Dropshipping is a way of selling and distributing products whereby the supplier of the product (the dropshipper)sends the goods directly to the end user (your customer) on the retailers behalf (thats you).
OK. So instead of constantly trying to find items from yard sales etc you simply study a list of Dropshippers and decide what product or products you would like to sell on eBay.
Quite often the Dropshipper will supply you with all the sales material you need to create your eBay Gallery Picture and eBay Sales Page.
The dropshipper stocks the product so you don't have to.
You put your chosen product up for sale on eBay, somebody buys it and eBay provides you with the buyers name and address. Now you simply contact your dropshipper and give them the name and address of your customer and the details of the product they have bought and the dropshipper will deliver it to them.
At this point you pay the dropshipper for the product.
The great thing here is that you got payed by your customer before you had to pay the dropshipper.
So your customer pays you the retail price for your product, you pay the dropshipper the wholesale price and you keep the difference as your profit in addition to saving time and effort.
Go to your favorite search engine and type in Dropship Directories and you will find that there are dozens and dozens of them to choose from.
A word of warning here. Most of these directories are a waste of time, a waste of money or both.
Quite often what you will receive, should you buy one these directories, is a list of "Middlemen" not true wholesalers.
I don't need to emphasise that you will make more money if you by direct from the wholesaler.
My first recommendation is to thoroughly check out any Dropshipping source that you might be interested in.
Can you find the product cheaper via another Dropshipper?
Are their postage and packing charges reasonable?
Do they carry ample stock of your particular choice of product/s? (There's nothing worse than selling an item only to find that your Dropshipper is out of stock and you are unable to provide your customer with the product they have paid for).
My second recommendation would be to check out the Dropshipping Companies at:-
To sum up.
Don't Stock It.
Don't Mail It.
Don't Pay For It, Untill You Have Been Paid.
Leave it to the Dropshippers to do that for you!
So the next time you're looking for something to sell on eBay, give some thought to using Dropshipping as a way of making you're eBay experience a whole lot easier and a whole lot more profitable.
