Profit on eBay: Buy wholesale, in bulk
Make money on eBay without relying on a drop shipper
If you're looking for a wholesale drop shipper, then let me stop you now. Simply, there is no
such thing as a "wholesale drop shipper." Either it's wholesale or it isn't. Drop shippers are
an unnecessary layer between you and the wholesaler. In short, they're stealing your eBay
profits. The only way to profit on eBay is to buy wholesale, in bulk.
Anyone who is trying to tell you that drop shippers are the way to go is simply getting a cut
from the drop shipper in terms of affiliate income. You see, drop shippers thrive on eBay
sellers who want the easy way out. Dropshippers know that many people don't want to stock
inventory themselves or ship it.
The truth is that there's no profit in drop ship and here's why:
- The margins are razor thin. When margins are thin, the only one profiting is the drop
shipper. The drop shipper is the middle man between you and the wholesaler.
- Even the best drop shippers sometimes run out of stock. As a seller, when you can't
deliver on a sale, you risk your reputation in terms of feedback.What's more, low buyer
satisfaction will reduce your standings in the Detailed Seller Ratings, which ties directly
to eBay's algorithms. In short, your future listings will get reduced to the bottom of the
- Backorders happen. A back order is when an item is out of stock and the drop shipper
holds you to the sale. It's inevitable in the new eBay climate that even if you are able
to deliver on a backorder in a somewhat timely manner and communications are good,
the buyer will give you a negative simply because the package arrives late.
- Returns are inevitable. There's a lot of red tape to deal with when a buyer returns
merchandise and you as a seller must deal with the drop shipper. If you choose to drop
ship, make sure you understand how the supplier handles returns and go only with a
supplier that lists the inventory on hand. Check the return policy, and adjust buyer
expectations about returns accordingly.
You can profit on eBay and earn a lifetime of residual income without drop shipping. You
deserve to be rich and the way to do that is to buy in bulk (wholesale from the
manufacturer). When you buy wholesale, you are in charge of your inventory and you will
make the most return on investment.
