Does anyone advertise things on ebay and use a dropshipper or can anyone recommend a dropshipper?

Thanks

its where i can sell something say for £20 and then the dropshipper charges me £15 for the item and they send the item direct to the customer on my behalf, good way of making money i believe

Why would you not just send the item yourself??

It sounds as if she doesn't actually have the item in the first place. The way I read it is that she'd be getting someone else to provide and deliver it, and charging more for the product than the person shipping it is charging her.

so you sell something you dont have?

Auntybrandybutter Fri 30-Dec-05 06:39:26

no i think I get it!
Say your Mum wants to sell something..you do it for her and charge her? Is that it?

I am not sure if dropshipping is allowed on eBay...think you have to have the item in hand to sell it.

Hi, I have done drop shipping on ebay for ages and made a fortune. I searched drop shipping sites and ones came up like waooga.com, focalprice.com, dealextreme.com etc. I advertised their product using their photo and description, changing the description to suit my needs all these sites allow it look in the drop shipping section, and you can put your own price in at a mark up sometimes i make 100% profit.... Waooga.com was my favourite.

Is it pretty easy to set up and what sort of £££ do you make?
