Hi TalkinPeace, Thanks for your reply. I have had 2 missing parcels and 2 damaged ones so far. But each time the supplier automatically sent replacements, so the customers were happy enough. I haven't had any negative feedback yet. Is it cases opened or negative feedback that gets your account shut down?
I agree it's competitive and I do add new items often, but so far it has been very profitable for me, especially for the short hours that I need to put in. And it fits perfectly around my day job and kids
If you've only recently started and already have 2 lost parcels and 2 damaged ones that's not a great record. We've been selling online for 4 years and have only had a handful of missing parcels in all that time. Must admit to wondering if you're for real. I don't know anyone who makes much from dropshipping.
As someone who has an online business (not through eBay) there are very few products you can actually make money on drop shipping. And that is without ebay fees.
The suppliers overheads are very high as they have to post individual items so the cost to you is pretty close to rrp, would expect it to be nearly impossible to make money with this on eBay as people want a bargain and you have eBay fees. Also, presumably everyone who attends this course will be told about the same suppliers and products, so lots of people trying to sell the same products at the same price.
