Ebay and Dropshipping, A Marriage Made In Heaven?
by: Ron Keegan
|Believe it or not, eBay is the BEST opportunity you can use
right now to make money online in the dropshipping business
from the comfort of your own home.
Thousands of people just like you use eBay auctions on a daily
basis to sell and buy products on the Internet; now it's your
time to START your own dropshipping home-based business
and succeed in the eBay auctions 'game'!
There are no special skills required for this dropshipping
business, all you need is a computer, Internet access and some
basic computer / Internet knowledge.
Dropshipping is when you sell products on the Web, forward
the orders to the dropship supplier and, in return, the
dropshipper ships the product to your customer (buyer).
You act as the middleman between the dropshipping supplier
and your buyer. You can take orders by credit card, PayPal
fax or any other method you can think of. You can sell via
your own Web Site, Yahoo store, or even through e-mails.
Your profit is generated on the difference between your selling
price and the price the dropshipping supplier charges you.
Thanks to dropshipping you can start making money 'instantly'
without any investment in inventory, warehousing, shipping,
equipment, employees or office space.
Having products drop shipped by suppliers, allows you to
concentrate on truly important aspects like advertising,
sales and promotion.

'Drop Shippers'. However, a legitimate drop shipper is a
factory-authorized wholesale distributor, or sometimes the
actual manufacturer of the product. A legitimate drop shipper
should not charge you an 'account setup fee' or ask you to place
a 'minimum quantity order'.
Make sure you find legitimate drop shippers who have
the product(s) you want to sell, talk with them on the phone
or by e-mail and let them know that you are truly serious about
doing business with them.
Customer support counts in the dropshipping business, so don't
hesitate to contact dropshipping suppliers before you proceed
to work with them.
This will help you decide if you really want to do business
with a particular drop shipper or not.
To succeed in the dropshipping business you'll have to LOOK
for hard-to-find products that people desperately need and want
The key is to sell products with little or no competition.
Do some research for product's you want to sell
that you think will have little or no competition on eBay.
I suggest you RESEARCH for quality products & legitimate
dropship suppliers, MONITOR the eBay auction listings to see if
there's any competition and TEST the market (e.g. find out if
people really want to spend CASH on the product you want to
Remember! Dropshipping makes it EASY for you to start and
run your own home-based businesses on a shoestring budget;
and eBay is the 'perfect' MEDIUM to expose your product
to potential buyers all over the globe!
