One thing you should always keep in mind when you run across these doomsday stories about how making money on eBay with the dropship business model is impossible is that in many---or even most---cases, these people would have failed at any endeavor, not just dropshipping on eBay.<br><br>Let’s face it. We all know the pessimistic people who moan and groan all the time about basically anything and everything.<br><br>These are the Eeyores of the world. The thing is that things don’t usually improve much for these folks because they never recognize or acknowledge the reason for their misery and repeated failures. What is the problem? Why do some people fall flat on their faces time after time, in one venture or job after another?<br><br>The problem is their attitude and in all too many cases, things such as poor work ethics, unrealistic expectations, poor planning and management, and so on.<br><br>If you are the type of person who has a winning attitude and you have what it takes to be successful in an online business, you most definitely can succeed with dropshipping on eBay.<br><br>Here are 4 money making tips to help you achieve that success:<br><br>1. Offer free shipping. Internet research has shown beyond any and all doubt that the average online shopper is more likely to buy if free shipping is offered. You can factor in the amount of shipping into your starting auction price or your fixed price listing so that you don’t lose any money. This is a win-win for all concerned. You make more sales and the buyer is happy with free shipping.<br><br>2. Learn and use the eBay jargon so that your titles will pack more of a punch and provide more info to shoppers. Since eBay expanded the number of characters allowed in the titles, it has been a big help. Still, knowing how to use eBay Speak effectively can make your titles even better. Here are a few to get you started: NWT---New With Tags. NIB---New In Box. OSFA---One Size Fits All. There are more, just scout around some auctions and learn the lingo.<br><br>3. Research pricing in your niche or of your dropshipping products so that you are competitive with your competitors. Don’t try to undersell them, though. Shoppers are not averse to paying more for something that has more perceived value. You can beef up the perceived value of your items by having better descriptions and images than your competition, offering free shipping, 14 day returns, etc. <br><br>4. Timing is everything! There is literally no telling how many people have failed as dropshipping sellers on eBay because they didn’t grasp the importance of timing. For example, you may be a night owl who loves to stay up all night, but having your listings end in the wee hours of the morning is just plain dumb. How many insomniac shoppers are likely to be online at 3 am and shopping on eBay? A few, yes, but not enough to offset the loss of traffic from the people who went to bed and slept through the night, as most of us do. Keep in mind that eBay runs on PST. You should adjust your timing for ending listings accordingly. <br><br>Use these 4 money making tips for dropshipping on eBay and watch those sales start pouring in!<br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100572/4-Money-Making-Tips-for-Successful-Dropshipping-on-eBay&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 04 Sep 2013 20:41:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100572http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100437/5-Mistakes-eBay-Dropship-Sellers-Make-What-NOT-to-Do#Comments05 Mistakes eBay Dropship Sellers Make: What NOT to Dohttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100437/5-Mistakes-eBay-Dropship-Sellers-Make-What-NOT-to-Do<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/warningbean.JPG" alt="eBay dropshipper mistakes" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">You may have heard someone grousing that there is no way to be successful as a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> seller on eBay.<br><br>This is nonsense.<br><br>There most certainly is a way and in fact, there are many successful eBay dropship sellers who are making a very nice living at it. But, there have been many who tried it and failed and many more, no doubt, who will try it in the future and fail miserably.<br><br>So, what is the difference between these two groups of eBay dropship sellers---the success stories and the failures? What does one group do that the other doesn’t? Are the successful eBay dropshippers privy to a secret that others don’t know about?<br><br>The secret is what the successful ones do and perhaps even more importantly, what they DON’T do!<br><br>The thing about eBay is that you don’t get a lot of room for mistakes, especially when you are first starting out. There is a very narrow margin for error and a few feedbacks will be enough to sink your eBay ship if you flub up right from the begging.<br><br>Here are 5 common mistakes made by eBay dropship sellers who end up being unsuccessful:<br><br>1. They don’t provide good images. Your pictures have to clearly show a shopper what you are selling, so they need to be good enough to enable the person to make an informed buying decision. If you plaster poor quality, blurry or otherwise crummy images on eBay of your products---forget it. You won’t succeed.<br><br>2. They don’t provide good descriptions. Everything mentioned above about images goes for descriptions, too. Your descriptions should tell a viewer everything they need to know about your product. For example, if you are selling shoes and neglect to mention what size they are who do you think is going to buy them?<br><br>3. They don’t answer questions from potential buyers. Let’s face it, despite all of the disruptive change of the last few years and efforts to rid eBay of bad sellers, there are still some to be found on the site. Some are probably not so much bad as just stupid or ignorant. Be that as the case may be, there are a lot of buyers who have been burned by purchasing an item that was not as described. They might need reassurance that the item is as good as you say it is. Answer these messages! Doing so may gain you a valuable repeat customer. Not doing so will almost certainly cost you a sale. <br><br>4. They hold feedback hostage until after the buyer leave feedback. Honestly, this is lame. In the olden days of eBay when sellers could still leave negative feedback for buyers, this practice might have had some purpose. But, those days are gone. Sellers are unable to leave buyers anything except positive feedback. So, holding out on leaving feedback until after the buyer does really makes no sense and it antagonizes a lot of buyers. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar!<br><br>5. They don’t download tracking info. Hopefully you are doing business with a wholesale product source for your dropship items that furnishes tracking numbers. Some dropship eBay sellers simply can’t be bothered to post this info to the site so that the buyer knows their widget is on its way. This is bad business and will cost you repeat business as well as gain negative or neutral feedback. <br><br>Those are 5 <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/education_read.php?quizID=45" title="common mistakes eBay dropship sellers make " target="_blank">common mistakes eBay dropship sellers make </a>that cause them to fail, so avoid them and you can be successful if you do everything else right!<br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100437/5-Mistakes-eBay-Dropship-Sellers-Make-What-NOT-to-Do&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 30 Aug 2013 01:07:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100437http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100125/3-eBay-Dropshipping-Mistakes-That-Can-Cost-You-Money#Comments03 eBay Dropshipping Mistakes That Can Cost You Money!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100125/3-eBay-Dropshipping-Mistakes-That-Can-Cost-You-Money<br><img id="img-1376845469237" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/warning sign-resized-600.gif" alt="warning sign resized 600" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">If you have an eBay <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> business, you might appreciate finding out about 3 common mistakes that can cost you a lot of money over time.<br><br>Some dropshippers don’t do all that well on eBay and mistakenly believe that it is just how it is, having read or heard that success with dropshipping on eBay is nigh on to impossible. <br><br>Heads up, eBay dropshippers! This is not true! The fact is that there are a lot of successful drop shippers on eBay. They aren’t easy to spot because they don’t advertise that they are dropshipping, and why should they? The successful drop shippers on eBay blend right in with all of the other sellers, which is as it should be.<br><br>You can dropship on eBay and make a very comfortable living doing so, if you play your cards right and avoid these 3 costly mistakes.<br><br><strong>I. Poor customer service:</strong> This is an all too common failing of eBay sellers in general and it can take you down! Just because you are selling on eBay instead of your own website doesn’t give you a free pass to skip providing excellent customer service. Remember, the bottom line is that they are YOUR customers, not eBay’s. If you want to succeed and stay on eBay, you will have to be diligent about taking care of your buyers. Contrary to what some sellers say, the problem buyer on eBay is the exception rather than the rule. The majority of your customers will be reasonable, honest, decent people. There are a few bad apples, of course, but giving these crabby customers great service is one way of helping to avoid any unpleasantness. Do provide tracking info. Do answer all messages promptly and courteously---before and after the sale. Do include a simple “Thank You” with every invoice.<br><br><strong>II. Lousy titles, descriptions and poor images:</strong> Some of the titles on eBay are so bad that one has to wonder how the sellers ever manage to sell anything at all. Just browse the listings in any category and you’ll see the proof of this. For example, in Vintage Textiles, a title for what was presumably a chenille bedspread---”Senile Bedspread.” Really? Bedspreads can get senile or is it the seller who is senile? Or this one that is seen fairly often in the Vintage Lingerie category---”Satan Nightgown” instead of what is surely meant to be a satin nightgown. These kinds of mistakes will cost you sales because most shoppers don’t want to deal with somebody who is obviously incompetent, thinking that they aren’t trustworthy. As for descriptions and images, there is a general rule of thumb that will serve you well---Write your descriptions as though there are no photos and have your photos as though there are no descriptions. You get the idea. You absolutely must give online shoppers enough information to make a buying decision and your images and descriptions are the only way to do this.<br><br><strong>III.</strong> <strong>Have hostile terms and policies or too many terms and policies:</strong> People simply do not like this. You can find them in many eBay listings and some are so off-putting that any reasonably normal person will hit the back button and get out of there. Who wants to do business with someone who comes across as having the personality of a puff adder? Those terms and conditions that go on and on ad nauseum about all the things the seller will not tolerate and reason they won’t refund are hogwash anyway for the simple reason that if a buyer isn’t happy, they can file a dispute with eBay or Paypal and usually get their money back very quickly, with a minimum of fuss and bother. You won’t scare off the scammers and crooks that are out to cheat you because they get the benefit of the doubt with Paypal and eBay by virtue of being the customer. All you will succeed in doing is scaring away good buyers who wouldn’t have caused you a minute’s worth of trouble. So, don’t do this. Short and sweet should be your guidelines for terms and conditions.<br><br>Avoid these <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/education_read.php?quizID=45" title="3 eBay dropshipping mistakes" target="_blank">3 eBay dropshipping mistakes</a> and you can have a lucrative career as part of this mammoth global marketplace!<br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100125/3-eBay-Dropshipping-Mistakes-That-Can-Cost-You-Money&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSun, 18 Aug 2013 16:46:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100125http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/99501/Dropshipping-Tips-How-to-Become-an-eBay-Powerseller#Comments0Dropshipping Tips: How to Become an eBay Powersellerhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/99501/Dropshipping-Tips-How-to-Become-an-eBay-Powerseller<br><img id="img-1375410368372" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/moneyhouse1-resized-600.jpg" alt="ebay dropshipping" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">If you would love to work from home and be your own boss, you might appreciate some <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping " target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong> </a>tips about how to become an eBay Powerseller!<br><br>First of all, let’s clarify something: If you have heard or read any malarkey about how it is impossible to be successful on eBay with the dropshipping business model---forget it. This is simply not true. <br><br>One thing to bear in mind about information such as this is that much success or failure in any endeavor depends on a variety of factors. Just because one person failed with dropshipping on eBay and is now disgruntled and running around shouting from the rooftops how it can’t work doesn’t mean that another person wouldn’t be extremely successful as an eBay dropshipper.<br><br>Frankly, some people will fail miserably at just about any undertaking and in the final analysis; the failure is nobody’s fault but their own. <br><br>Some people have bad work habits and poor work ethics. They aren’t willing to put in enough time to be successful and don’t provide good customer service, which is absolutely essential on eBay. Those two things by themselves will sink the ship of dropshippers on eBay who are guilty of them.<br><br>The fact is that you can certainly become an eBay Powerseller and Top Rated Seller, as well, with dropshipping---IF you go about it right!<br><br>Here are some do’s and don’ts of dropshipping on eBay if you want to be a Powerseller and Top Rated Seller:<br><br> <ul> <li>Choose your niche carefully. Ideally, it will be a niche that is in demand but without an inordinately high amount of competition.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Choose a wholesale dropship product source with high quality products. If there is one thing that will bring a screeching halt to your career as an eBay seller, it is selling crummy, inferior products. You will get a lot of negative feedback and Item Not As Described cases filed against you, along with a lot of refunds. eBay doesn’t tolerate a lot of this, so you won’t get too many strikes before you’re out.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make sure your product supplier gives you low inventory notices so that you don’t oversell. This is a really bad thing all year long because customers don’t like it. But, if it happens during the holiday shopping buyers will really be irate and you’re going to get negative feedback when you have to cancel their orders.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Provide excellent customer service. Make sure your buyers get tracking info and messages that their item/s has shipped. If there is a problem be proactive and try to solve it to their satisfaction as soon as possible. Be courteous and polite at all times, even if the buyer is a stinker. You must remain professional! Answer questions and messages promptly.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Don’t give your buyers unrealistic expectations about when to expect their item/s. While you don’t have to reveal that it will be dropshipped, do be honest and straightforward about when they can reasonably expect it. People don’t mind that much if it takes a while to get their item if they are forewarned right up front. It’s when you fudge about the delivery time and have them expect it earlier than it will really reach them that things get ugly.</li> </ul> <br>Use these dropshipping tips to become an eBay Powerseller and Top Rated Seller!<br><br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/99501/Dropshipping-Tips-How-to-Become-an-eBay-Powerseller&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSat, 27 Jul 2013 21:42:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:99501http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/99263/How-to-Set-Up-Dropship-eBay-Auctions#Comments0How to Set Up Dropship eBay Auctionshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/99263/How-to-Set-Up-Dropship-eBay-Auctions<br><img id="img-1375410479574" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/confused3-resized-600.jpg" alt="set up dropship eBay auctions" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Anyone who wants to start a home business in ecommerce might be wondering how to set up <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship " target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong> </a>eBay auctions.<br><br>Well, good news! It’s easy!<br><br>In fact, it’s so low cost, fast and easy to start up a home dropship business and get your products listed on eBay---making sales and money---that you will be pleasantly surprised if you envisioned some long, drawn out, expensive and complicated process.<br><br>First of all, if you are just starting out in a home dropshipping business, eBay is an excellent choice for a marketplace to sell your products. It has a tremendous volume of global traffic 24/7 and is well known in most parts of the civilized world. For your purposes, the civilized world is all you’re concerned about since people living in uncivilized parts of the world probably don’t have access to computers and can’t buy from you anyway.<br><br>When you set up dropship eBay auctions, you get the benefits of eBay’s name and all that traffic, something you couldn’t possibly hope to match when you are first starting out. Well, actually, it’s unlikely you could ever match the amount of traffic eBay has, but at some point down the road, you might want to look at setting up your own web site and using eBay to drive traffic to your site to vice versa---use your web site to help drive traffic to your eBay dropship listings.<br><br>Here are the steps you will need to take, in order, to set up dropship eBay auctions:<br><br> <ul> <li>If you don’t already have one, set up an eBay seller’s account, as well as a Paypal account.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Next, decide on a niche. Do your homework and find one in high demand, at least high enough to keep you in potential customers.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>After choosing a niche, research to find out what the average retail selling price is for your niche product/s. If you don’t know how much you can reasonably expect to get for the dropship items you sell, you won’t have any idea how much you can afford to pay them for resale.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Once you have a good ballpark idea of the price your dropship products should fetch, find a reputable wholesale product source who stocks the product at genuine wholesale prices.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Now, you have decided on a niche, researched the selling price, find a wholesale dropship product supplier to deal with and you’re ready to import those products to eBay with just a few clicks of your mouse. Your product source will have descriptions and images, ready for you to simply point and click to list in eBay.</li> </ul> <br>That’s it! You’re finished! Your dropship products are listed on eBay and you are ready to start making sales and money.<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/99263/How-to-Set-Up-Dropship-eBay-Auctions&bvt=rss">Greg ScottSat, 20 Jul 2013 23:22:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:99263http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98419/eBay-Dropshippers-Use-Terapeak-to-Provide-Marketplace-Research#Comments0eBay Dropshippers: Use Terapeak to Provide Marketplace Researchhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98419/eBay-Dropshippers-Use-Terapeak-to-Provide-Marketplace-Research<br><img id="img-1372014224236" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/moneyhand-resized-600.jpg" alt="Terapeak eBay dropshippers " class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">eBay <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshippers" target="_blank"><strong>dropshippers</strong></a> should consider using Terapeak to provide up to date market research that will help you stay current with the hottest trends.<br><br>If you want to change your eBay sales from blah to brilliant, check out Terapeak!<br><br>In case you have heard of Terapeak in passing but are more or less clueless about that it is and what it does, as well as how it might be expected to help you on eBay with your dropshipping business….read on.<br><br>Terapeak is a certified eBay provider that was founded in 2004.

Disregard any of the gloom and doom stories you might see online about how it is impossible to succeed on eBay and especially with a dropship business model.<br><br>This is simply not true.<br><br>Many, many people from all around the world are earning very comfortable livings--or more--as dropship sellers on eBay, and you can, too, provided you follow a few easy rules and tips.<br><br>Here are some valuable tips and tools that can be your strongest business partner for your dropship selling career on eBay.<br><br> <ul> <li>First, establish your account. If you don’t have much feedback, Paypal is apt to hold your payments until each products has been received by the buyer. Who wants that? So, set up your account and begin making some small purchases to establish feedback. Besides, buying before selling can be extremely helpful in giving you a bird’s eye look at the process from a buyer’s point of view. If nothing else, you might learn what NOT to do.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Find your niche. This is of paramount importance in selling on eBay. You should find a niche with a large enough demand to keep you in sales and traffic. Hopefully, your niche will not be oversaturated with competitors. Some competition is okay, of course. You can out distance your competition by providing better customer service than they do and thus gaining more repeat customers, as well as referrals from previous buyers.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Try using audio in your listings. Many shoppers respond favorably to audio as long as it is pertinent info about your product that helps them make an informed buying decision.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be careful to fill out all of the Item Specifics. Yes, It’s a tedious process, but the more completely you fill these out, the higher eBay’s search engine will rank your listing in search results. So, it is definitely a worthwhile thing to do.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Have more auctions of shorter duration. The reasoning behind this is that even with the new eBay Cassini search engine, listings ending soonest will be elevated in search results for Best Match. This way, you also get more exposure for the shoppers who search by Ending Soonest, too.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use an email signature. You can opt in to do this on eBay and you might be surprised at how much it will help your sales. As a rule of thumb, use 6-8 lines that describe briefly what you sell and include a link to your eBay store. You can set it up so that this signature is added automatically to every email you send on eBay.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Take advantage of the free eBay Research Labs tool called BayEstimator that can help you write better titles that should generate more click throughs for you. It’s a handy tool and you can learn a lot about what search words within your niche are trending and hot.</li> </ul> <br>These tips and tools can help you become a successful eBay dropship seller, so get started today!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97617/eBay-Dropship-Seller-Tips-Tools-for-Success&bvt=rss">Madison ClaireWed, 29 May 2013 00:52:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:97617http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97340/Dropship-Tips-Use-Best-SEO-Practices-to-Boost-eBay-Sales#Comments0Dropship Tips: Use Best SEO Practices to Boost eBay Sales!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97340/Dropship-Tips-Use-Best-SEO-Practices-to-Boost-eBay-Sales<br><p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/ebay.jpg" alt="SEO tips eBay dropship" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0">You can have a thriving, successful business on eBay as a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> seller, especially if you use best SEO practices!<br><br>Using SEO on eBay is just as critical as using it anywhere else for ecommerce. This is something that many eBay sellers tend to overlook and they pay for this oversight with less sales and profits. If you simply take a little time to familiarize yourself with best SEO practices for eBay and then implement them---you will be amply rewarded with more income!<br><br>These tips and tricks are not at all difficult and even newbie eBay dropship sellers can master them quickly.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>SEO Tips for eBay</h2> <br>Use these SEO tips for more eBay dropship sales.<br><br> <ul> <li>Your Title: eBay now allows up to 70 characters in the title. You should use at least two, preferably three, of your main keywords and make them as close to the beginning of the title as you can.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Your Descriptions: Use at least 200 words for your eBay descriptions and apply your keywords strategically, especially in the first sentence. Don’t over do it, though. Using such tactics as bolding and italicizing keywords is also quite helpful.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Feed Google: Just like any other ecommerce endeavor, Google will reward eBay dropship sellers who provide it with fresh, relevant content. Have a Facebook Fan Page for your eBay items, tweet about them, start an account on Pinterest….the more you do to provide content about your eBay listings, the better your chances of having Google and the other search engines find you and boost your ranking in search results pages.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>About Me Page: If you don’t already have one, do have an About Me page on eBay. This is not only a way to connect on a more personal level with your customers, but a way to furnish content and good SEO. Use plenty of links to your eBay store items and listings. Google and the other search engines love links and they will prove helpful to you by providing more SEO.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Update Keywords: It’s a good idea to update your eBay keywords about every two or three months. eBay itself will generate keywords for your store, but you should change and update them from time to time. Don’t know how to do this? You can find your eBay store keywords by looking at “Marketing Tools” and “Search Engine Keywords.”</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Category Names: When choosing category names for your eBay store items, use ones with your keywords. For example, if you are selling lingerie, use each specific type you sell as its category name---corset, nightgown, girdle, and so on. This will greatly enhance your chances of having your dropship items found when an eBay shopper performs a search for a specific item you have in your store.</li> </ul> <br>Using best SEO practices for your eBay dropship store items and listings can prove quite beneficial to boosting traffic and sales. Use these techniques to beef up your eBay SEO and watch traffic and dropship sales improve!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97340/Dropship-Tips-Use-Best-SEO-Practices-to-Boost-eBay-Sales&bvt=rss">Greg ScottTue, 21 May 2013 19:11:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:97340http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97090/Dropshippers-5-Proven-Ways-to-Boost-eBay-Sales#Comments0Dropshippers: 5 Proven Ways to Boost eBay Sales!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97090/Dropshippers-5-Proven-Ways-to-Boost-eBay-Sales<br><img id="img-1375410791440" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/askfrosale.jpg" alt="eBay dropshippers" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you are one of the many <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshippers " target="_blank"><strong>dropshippers</strong> </a>on eBay, you might be interested in picking up a few tips for boosting traffic and sales to your listings.<br><br>After all, more traffic and sales converts to more money and who doesn’t want that, right? Have you ever heard anybody in ecommerce say, “No, really, I don’t want to make more money?”<br><br>Of course not. Making money is a good thing and eBay dropshippers are generally in favor of getting their share of it.<br><br>Here are 5 tried and true, proven ways to boost traffic and sales for eBay dropshippers:<br><br>I. Use Cross Promotion with Other Sellers<br><br>Some eBay sellers are hesitant to do this because they fear they will lose sales. But, when you cross promote your items with other sellers, you increase your visibility and widen your sphere of influence on the site because those other sellers are showing your items, too. It’s a case of one hand washing the other and it does work, so don’t be afraid to give it a try.<br><br>II. Start an eBay Newsletter<br><br>You have free email marketing with newsletters, so take advantage of it and actively solicit subscriptions from customers as well as looky loos. Offer an incentive of some kind. You don’t have to give away the store, but make it worth someone’s while to opt-in to your email list. Please note that this is available to eBay store owners only, but hopefully you already have a store. Which brings us to our next tip.<br><br>III. Have an eBay Store<br><br>The Basic eBay Stores subscription is a mere $15.95 a month. Since the Spring Seller Update, if you agree to keep your store for a year, instead of on a month to month basis, you get the benefit of 150 free listings every month. This is nothing to sneeze at! Do the math and figure what you would pay for listing auctions for items with a starting price of, say, $34.99. You’re looking at $0.75 per listing fee. If the item doesn’t sell, you can relist and get a credit if it doesn’t sell the second go round. But, if it doesn’t, you’re out double listing fees. Ouch!<br><br>IV. Use Best Practices SEO<br><br>Many sellers don’t understand the importance of SEO for eBay drop shippers and others. In fact, keywords are vitally important! If you fail to use your prime keywords in your titles and descriptions, your rankings in eBay Best Match search will not be as high as they could be. As with any other search engine, the higher you are in search results, the better off you because more shoppers see your listings. If they don’t see your items, they’re unlikely to buy them, right?<br><br>V. Ask For the Sale<br><br>This is yet another area where a common misconception abounds for eBay dropshippers and other sellers. Any seasoned sales person understands the importance and effectiveness of simply asking someone to buy. If you haven’t tried it, start including a call to action at the end of every one of your descriptions and watch your sell through rate go up. For instance, if your dropshipping flash drives, end your description with something like this: “Why risk losing all of your important data? Back it up with a flash drive!” It’s easy. Just ask for the sale.<br><br>Dropshippers and other eBay sellers can use these 5 tips to help boost traffic and sales!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97090/Dropshippers-5-Proven-Ways-to-Boost-eBay-Sales&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 15 May 2013 23:14:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:97090http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96420/How-to-Attract-Buyers-on-eBay-Dropshipping-Sales-Tips#Comments0How to Attract Buyers on eBay: Dropshipping Sales Tipshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96420/How-to-Attract-Buyers-on-eBay-Dropshipping-Sales-Tips<br><img id="img-1375410976937" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/bag-of-money-resized-600.jpg" alt="dropshipping eBay" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Anyone who wants to work from home with an ecommerce business might be interested in a few <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> sales tips about how to attract buyers on eBay.<br><br>Although the internet has opened up the whole world as a consumer market to ecommerce entrepreneurs---a huge improvement over a traditional brick and mortar store where you depend mostly on local traffic---the fact is that the World Wide Web is a big, big place. So, if you want to make sales, you must devise ways to drive traffic to your site or listings. <br><br>A steady flow of traffic is what makes sales, since without potential customers to see what you have to offer, your home business cannot prosper and you won’t be able to earn a comfortable living.<br><br>When you sell on a giant online marketplace such as eBay or Amazon, you have an advantage when it comes to traffic because both of these sites have an enormous stream of global traffic 24/7, which will be a big help to you. That being said, you still need to work on ways to attract eBay viewers to your dropshipping products.<br><br>Here are some tips to help attract eBay buyers:<br><br> <ul> <li>Write great titles! Your title and your gallery photo are the first thing shoppers see as they scroll through eBay listings. You need to make your title one that instantly grabs a viewer’s attention and incites interest in your dropshipping listing, so that a shopper will click through to see all of the details. Use good SEO in your eBay titles, trying to keep your main keywords as close to the front of the title as possible. For example, if you are dropshipping classical music CDs, use the keyword phrase “Classical Music CD” as the beginning of your title, going on to say what composer it is and other pertinent info.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Have great images! Your eBay images are crucial if you want to attract buyers, so make sure they are large enough and that they are clear and accurately depict the item. If at all feasible, don’t use the stock image from your wholesale products source’s website. Instead, obtain one of every dropshipping product you are selling on eBay and take your own photos. Get multiple views so that buyers can see the product fully. Images are vitally important with ecommerce because shoppers are unable to really see the item and must depend on photos and descriptions.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Write fantastic descriptions! Your descriptions should be written as though there are no photos. Be sure to include all pertinent info about your dropshipping products. For example, if you are selling lingerie, be sure to have the size, the measurements, materials and anything else that would help the shopper make an informed buying decision and pull the trigger on the sale. Use SEO to its best advantage in your descriptions.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Provide excellent customer service so that you are a Top Rate Seller.

It’s one of the best opportunities around for anyone who wants to get away from a job they despise and work from home.<br><br>The dropship business model has much to offer wanna be ecommerce entrepreneurs and eBay is a great place to make money, with its enormous amount of global traffic passing through the site 24/7. Realistically speaking, you couldn’t possibly hope to draw the kind of traffic that eBay attracts and if you go about it right, you can successfully divert some of that traffic to your own dropship product listings.<br><br>While eBay has always been a viable venue for a dropship business, now that this giant online marketplace has started offering free listings, it’s even better!<br><br>Up until now, you paid a fairly high price to list auction style, plus a hefty Final Value Fee for each item sold. Fixed Price listings, while not costing as much in listing fees, incurred a higher Final Value Fee than auction style listings. If you listed in the auction format and your item didn’t sell, you had the option of relisting and not having to pay another listing fee if your item sold the second time around. If not, you were charged for both runs. <br><br>Ouch!<br><br>Nowadays, though, eBay has decided to make things a little easier on the pocketbooks of sellers by not charging any listing fees under certain circumstances. Let’s take a look at the new eBay set up for listing fees, as shown on the eBay website:<br><br>“Starting today—for sellers without an eBay Stores subscription—your 50 FREE listings* per month can be Auction style or Fixed Price. You pay a final value fee only when your item sells. Final value fees have been streamlined to just one flat rate of 10%—regardless of how you sell. You also get a FREE listing scheduler for more control over when your listings start and end!<br><br>Selling or planning to sell more than 50 per month? An eBay Store may be the best choice for you. Starting May 1, with an eBay stores subscription you’ll get between 150 -2,500 FREE listings* a month, final value fees from 4-9%, and access to a wealth of great marketing tools to help you grow your business! Best of all, subscriptions start as low as $15.95 a month for a yearly Store subscription. Learn more about everything eBay Stores have to offer.<br><br>Note: As a part of today’s fee update, any remaining of the 50 free Auction-style listings allotted on April 1 to sellers paying standard fees (no eBay Stores subscription) will expire, and new allotment of 50 free Auction-style or fixed price listings will be granted for the remainder of the month of April.<br><br>* Pay no insertion fees for your allotted free listings per calendar month. Optional fees, including advanced listing upgrades and supplemental service fees, still apply. Pay final value fees only when you sell. Motors Vehicles, Real Estate, Heavy Equipment, Concession Trailers &amp; Carts, Imaging &amp; Aesthetics Equipment and Commercial Printing Presses are excluded. 12 free pictures does not apply to Motors Vehicles listings. Terms are subject to change.”<br><br>Now, there are several points in here that should be touched on because they’re important. <br><br>First of all, of course, is that paying no listing fees takes the financial risk out of listing your dropship items. During slow times, sellers can rack up a lot of fees and sell fewer items than usual. You should also note the free scheduler, because up until this change, scheduling an auction cost $0.10. Maybe that doesn’t sound like much, but hey---pennies make dollars!<br><br>If you list in two categories, you will pay a listing fee for the second. If you add special features such as Gallery Plus, you will pay the standard fee for those. Some categories are excluded from the free listings:<br><br> <ul> <li>Motor Vehicles</li> <li>Real Estate</li> <li>Heavy Equipment</li> <li>Concession Trailers &amp; Carts</li> <li>Imaging Aesthetics Equipment</li> <li>Commercial Printing Presses</li> </ul> <br>These categories are not likely to apply to a dropship seller.<br><br>If you’re tired of spending your life making money for somebody else and want to start a home business, start a profitable home dropship business with eBay’s free listings!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96323/Start-a-Profitable-Home-Dropship-Business-with-eBay-s-Free-Listings&bvt=rss">Greg ScottTue, 23 Apr 2013 20:59:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:96323http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96231/Tips-For-Finding-the-Best-Dropship-Products-to-Sell-on-eBay#Comments0Tips For Finding the Best Dropship Products to Sell on eBayhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96231/Tips-For-Finding-the-Best-Dropship-Products-to-Sell-on-eBay<br><img id="img-1366414116917" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/bag-of-money-resized-600.jpg" alt="dropship eBay" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Do you want to start a profitable home business in ecommerce and in need of a few tips for finding the best <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship " target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong> </a>products to sell on eBay?<br><br>eBay is a humongous online marketplace with a tremendous amount of global traffic flowing through the site 24/7. If you are just getting started in ecommerce, you couldn’t reasonably expect to drive the amount of traffic that passes through this giant venue, so it’s a good choice for beginners.<br><br>eBay might remain a good choice for you, or you might decide somewhere down the road that you would prefer to build your own website. Or, you may opt for a turnkey online store such as ProStores.<br><br>For now, though, to get started making sales and money quickly with a home dropship business, eBay is a safe bet for you. Your eBay success as a dropship seller will largely depend on the niche you choose, so it is vitally important to select a niche with products that are in high demand on eBay.<br><br>If there is a large consumer demand for a widget, and you supply that demand, you have an almost sure fire formula for success!<br><br>Here are some tips for finding the best dropship products to sell on eBay:<br><br> <ul> <li>Check the Google Keyword Tool and do a search for a product you are thinking of dropshipping on eBay. This will provide you with the number of global searches performed for this product every month. If it is a high number, go to the head of the class---you have found a great performer to dropship on eBay. If it is a low number….keep looking, it’s a loser.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Scope out eBay itself as regards dropship products you are considering selling. You can simply find the category for the product in question and then search the completed listings to see how many there were, how ell they sold and the average selling price. This is good info and can help you pick a winner.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Find a reputable wholesale dropship product source, preferably one with brand name products, and browse their selection of products available to you for dropshipping. Any time you can dropship a famous brand name product you are one step ahead of the game because the majority of customers will buy a well known brand name before a generic no name product. Be sure to choose a wholesale product source who will give you genuine wholesale prices, low enough that you will have an ample margin for profit on every sale.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Finding the best dropship products to sell on eBay also might mean finding products that aren’t overflowing with competition. The less competition you have, the better---as long as it is a hot niche with enough potential customers to provide you with plenty of sales for a profitable home business. So, to find the best products, sometimes you may need to drill down within a broad niche to locate and develop a lucrative sub-niche that doesn’t have quite as many competitors.</li> </ul> <br>Once you find the best dropship products for eBay, start selling them and living the good life with your own home business!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96231/Tips-For-Finding-the-Best-Dropship-Products-to-Sell-on-eBay&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSat, 20 Apr 2013 00:25:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:96231http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96059/How-to-Find-Hot-Niche-Products-for-eBay-Dropshipping#Comments0How to Find Hot Niche Products for eBay Dropshippinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96059/How-to-Find-Hot-Niche-Products-for-eBay-Dropshipping<br><img id="img-1375411120479" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/choices-resized-600.jpg" alt="eBay dropshipping" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you have a regular job that you would love to quit, in favor of working from home in your own business, you might be interested in getting the scoop on how to find hot niche products for eBay <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a>.<br><br>eBay and Amazon are the two giant marketplaces and both have an enormous amount of global traffic 24/7. If you decide that you would prefer to go with eBay, you can count on reaping at least some of the benefits of this traffic. <br><br>While it would be nice to have your own website---and eventually you might do that---if you are just getting started in ecommerce, you would be well advised to stick with eBay as you couldn’t reasonably hope to drive that much traffic to your online store initially.<br><br>Now, how do you find hot niche products for eBay dropshipping? How do you know which products are likely to sell like hotcakes and which are liable to sit there and stagnate because nobody wants them?<br><br>These are weighty questions, since your success as an eBay dropship seller will largely depend on your niche. If there is a demand for your products, sufficient to keep you in plenty of sales, you are one step ahead of the game and can expect to do well and make money.<br><br>If there isn’t a demand for your products that is enough to sustain your business, your eBay career will tank.<br><br>Here are some tips to help you find hot niche products for eBay dropshipping:<br><br> <ul> <li>Go through the various eBay categories and check to see the completed listings in each one that you think might work for your dropshipping sales. If you see page after page of listings that show red for the selling price, this means that those items didn’t sell and you had better move on to something else, because if the product isn’t selling for other sellers on eBay, chances are it won’t sell for you, either. When you find products with a lot of green numbers for the selling price, which denotes items that sold, then you can take a better look at these high performance products that are selling well on eBay.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use the Google Keyword Tool (it’s free) to see how many global searches are performed monthly for a particular product. If there are a lot of searches, this tells you that a lot of people are actively looking to buy this product and that it may be a hot niche product for eBay dropshipping. For example, if you enter the keyword phrase “silver jewelry” and see that about 2 million searches were performed globally for it in a month---you know that there is a big consumer demand for silver jewelry.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Going back to plain Google, the search engine, do a search for the sales stats for the product you are considering dropshipping on eBay. You may not be able to find this info and if you can’t, this isn’t a good sign. The hot products and niches will almost certainly have this data compiled. For example, if you are thinking of dropshipping digital cameras on eBay, search Google to get the sales stats for 2012 on global digital camera sales. If those stats are high---you’ve found a winner.</li> </ul> <br>These tips will help you know how to find hot niche products for eBay dropshipping!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96059/How-to-Find-Hot-Niche-Products-for-eBay-Dropshipping&bvt=rss">Greg ScottMon, 15 Apr 2013 18:55:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:96059http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96057/eBay-Dropshippers-Heads-Up-on-the-Spring-Sellers-Update#Comments0eBay Dropshippers: Heads Up on the Spring Sellers Update!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96057/eBay-Dropshippers-Heads-Up-on-the-Spring-Sellers-Update<br><p><img id="img-1366042674849" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/thinking-resized-600.jpg" alt="eBay dropshippers" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">eBay <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshippers" target="_blank"><strong>dropshippers</strong></a>, heads up on the Spring sellers update as it will impact you for better or worse.<br><br>If you are a dropship or other seller on eBay, you need to make it your business to get the lowdown on the latest seller update because it will affect you, one way or the other.

While its policies and rules for sellers are a bit on the strict side, you can be very successful on eBay if you learn your way around. When it comes to dropshipping on eBay, what not to do is as important as what to do.<br><br>Many a hopeful eBay entrepreneur with a newly started dropshipping home business has started out with high hopes and then quickly fizzled out or gone up in smoke due to being unprepared. Like many other endeavors in life, success on eBay comes with preparation and going into it forearmed with the knowledge you need.<br><br>Here are 5 basic tips that will help you be a better dropship seller on eBay:<br><br>1. Choose your niche product or products wisely. You might be a superlative seller in every respect, but if you aren’t selling what people are looking to buy, you’ll fail miserably. Before you choose a niche, look around on eBay and see what the hottest sellers are. Check out the eBay Pulse, which shows the most watched items. Check completed listings for your niche to find out the general selling price and how many went unsold. This will help you make a shrewd and informed decision when you select a niche for dropshipping on eBay.<br><br>2. Decide to go with an auction format for your listings or a Fixed Price format. Here’s the thing: you will have to pay listing fees to list your dropship items. You pay those fees whether your item sells, or not. Be aware that auction listings have a considerably higher listing fee than Fixed Price listings, although a slightly lesser Final Value Fee. You can list a Fixed Price item for $.20 regardless of its price. Auction listings, though, are charged fees determined by the starting price. If you have researched similar products on eBay and gotten a good idea what they sell for, you might well be better off to stick with Fixed Price instead of auction style. That way, if an item doesn’t sell, you’re only out $.20 rather than a pricey fee for an auction listing that bombed.<br><br>3. Proofread your descriptions and titles carefully. If you misspell words and have sloppy grammar and typos, you are giving readers the impression that you’re not only unprofessional but not too bright as well. This does not inspire confidence in potential buyers. People take a leap of faith to buy online as it is. The last thing you want to do is make a bad impression, plus it tends to make viewers think that your products are probably as sub-standard as your writing. Don’t shout in all caps. Don’t use goofy looking titles that have a combination of caps and lowercase letters. This looks like something a first grader might do. Again, not a good way to build trust in viewers.<br><br>4. Use buyer requirements to filter out as many problem buyers as you possibly can. eBay has a special place for this and you can actually block people who have had X amount of non paying buyer disputes, policy violations and other transgressions. Unfortunately, these buyer requirements, while helpful, aren’t enough. Be proactive about protecting yourself by checking the feedback and feedback left for others of those making offers on your products or bidding. If you have a bid from a buyer with a scary habit of leaving apparently undeserved negative feedback for sellers---cancel that bid. (Yes, you can. It’s your stuff, remember.)<br><br>5. Here is one that may be a bit unorthodox but will prove to be very helpful to you if you want to be a successful eBay dropship seller: don’t use the same ID to buy and sell. Big mistake. Sadly, some eBay sellers are less than scrupulous and if you end up getting burned by one of them when a widget you bought is a worthless piece of junk…you don’t want to get your seller ID involved in a dispute. Leave another seller negative feedback using your selling ID, even if richly deserved, and there is a good chance they’ll retaliate and buy something from you just to neg you back. Nor are they likely to do it under their selling ID, so you wouldn’t be able to prove it. Keep the two activities separate. You’re allowed two IDs on eBay, use them.<br><br>These 5 tips can help you be a better dropship seller on eBay!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/94584/Dropship-Basics-5-Tips-on-Being-a-Better-eBay-Seller&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeTue, 26 Feb 2013 01:38:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:94584http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/93960/Wholesale-Dropship-Product-Source-for-eBay-You-Sell-They-Ship#Comments0Wholesale Dropship Product Source for eBay: You Sell They Ship!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/93960/Wholesale-Dropship-Product-Source-for-eBay-You-Sell-They-Ship<br><p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/excited.jpg" alt="wholesale dropship product source eBay" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">You can work from home, earning a nice income, if you find a good wholesale <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> product source for eBay--you sell, they ship!<br><br>Ask several non-dropship eBay sellers about shipping and you’ll probably get the same answer from all of them: it’s a bummer.

Your dropship wholesale product source houses the inventory. You don’t even have to pay for it up front! Instead, you pay your product supplier as each item is sold and your buyer has paid you for it, including the shipping cost.<br><br>At that point, all you have to do is notify your wholesale product source of the sale and provide all of the pertinent info such as the buyer’s name, address, etc. and then pay for the product.<br><br>Honestly, could it get any easier?<br><br>You may run across some gloom and doom stuff about how it’s impossible to successfully dropship on eBay. Don’t believe it. It’s not only possible, but in fact it is being done---quite successfully---every day by a large number of eBay sellers.<br><br>There are a few basic things to keep in mind if you want to be a successful eBay dropshipper:<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Be sure to choose a wholesale dropship product source for eBay wisely. They need to have high quality products, brand names if possible, and a great selection so that you have many choices of what to sell.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Be sure that the product supplier will send you low inventory notices to prevent you from overselling. You don’t want to do this because it means you would have to cancel a sale and a lot of customers get really snarky about this. Your feedback would suffer and you might find yourself suspended from selling because of it, which would be a bad thing.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Be sure to be upfront with buyers about the expected time for delivery. It isn’t necessary to lay it all out there and tell them you’re dropshipping. But don’t mislead them with unrealistic delivery times, either. Most people are fine with a bit of a wait as long as they were forewarned. It’s when you fib and tell them to expect it in a couple of days and they don’t receive their item for a week or more that the trouble starts.</li> </ul> <p><br>If you observe those practices, you can find a wholesale product <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/drop_ship_source.php" title="dropship source" target="_blank"><span style="color: #3366ff;">dropship source</span></a> for eBay: you sell, they ship---and have a lucrative thriving home ecommerce business!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/93960/Wholesale-Dropship-Product-Source-for-eBay-You-Sell-They-Ship&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyThu, 07 Feb 2013 01:53:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:93960http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92688/How-to-Boost-eBay-Traffic-and-Dropshipping-Sales#Comments0How to Boost eBay Traffic and Dropshipping Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92688/How-to-Boost-eBay-Traffic-and-Dropshipping-Sales<br><img id="img-1375411817426" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/hombuss.jpg" alt="dropshipping eBay" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you are an eBay seller with an online home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> business, you may be interested in picking up a few tips on how to boost eBay traffic and sales.<br><br>eBay, while its rules are stringent and unpalatable to many sellers, does have a gigantic amount of global traffic. This makes it a fantastic world marketplace for anyone with a dropshipping business who wants to make money online, working from home. <br><br>You may have heard reports that it’s too hard to make money on eBay and that only the huge big box businesses are getting the traffic so smaller sellers are shut out and can’t make any money. If you have, disregard them because such stories are not true.<br><br>It does seem that the eBay search engine, with all its faults, does reward sellers with scads of listings. But, on the other hand, it stands to reason that the more listings a seller has, the more will show up in search. Be that as it may, you have no worries about getting sufficient traffic on eBay to ensure yourself a tidy income if you go about things the right way, even as a small dropshipping seller.<br><br>Here are some tips to help you increase traffic to your eBay listings and therefore, boost sales:<br><br> <ul> <li>Use your titles wisely. eBay recently increased the number of characters a seller can use in the title, which is a good thing. You now have 80 characters to play with instead of the old 55. Take advantage of this extra opportunity to write compelling titles that snag a shopper’s attention and make someone want to click through to view your product. Make your titles descriptive and your product sound appealing. Be sure to include such details as size, color and so forth if applicable.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure to fill out all of the fields in the drop down menu for item details. This is supposed to help you in search. For example, if you are selling clothing, there are drop down choices for style, color, size, etc. Use them all and boost your listings in the search pages.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use great SEO. This means using your prime keywords in your title and as close to the beginning of the title as you can get them. For instance, if you are dropshipping video games, put your most important keywords right up front, such as “video game” and the title of the game, which video game player it uses and more. Use good SEO in your descriptions, as well. Using good SEO will not only help your listings to get elevated in the search pages within eBay, but search engines such as Google can pick them up easier too.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Have great images! The old saying goes that a picture is worth a thousand words. That may or may not be true, but it’s definitely a truth that eBay shoppers love good photos and plenty of them. So, make your product images the best they can be. Show different views of the product and make sure your images are large enough to be seen well. This is critical for online sales! You may need to actually buy one each of your dropship products to take the photos, but it’s a great investment and anyway, you can resell them once your photography session is over.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Offer free shipping if possible. This will get your listings a boost in the eBay search. In some cases, you simply won’t be able to factor the shipping cost into the price of the widget, but if you can….do. Besides getting your items ranked higher in eBay search, internet research has proven that online shoppers love free shipping and will buy a product with free shipping before they’ll buy an identical product without free shipping.</li> </ul> <br>Use these tips to increase eBay traffic and boost dropshipping sales! <br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92688/How-to-Boost-eBay-Traffic-and-Dropshipping-Sales&bvt=rss">J.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t use dropshipping as a seller on eBay and have a great business!<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>Tips for Successful eBay Dropshipping</strong></span></h3> <br>There are a lot of ways to be successful as an eBay seller using dropshipping. Here are a few that you might find useful:<br><br> <ul> <li>Choose your niche wisely. Like any other venue---online or off---the niche you choose is vitally important to the success or failure of your venture. You must have a product that is enough demand to provide you with a steady stream of traffic and prospective customers. Research and learn what those niches are and start from there.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Choose your dropship wholesale product source wisely and make sure your supplier is giving you true wholesale prices. When you are buying for resale, you make your money when you buy, not when you sell. This simply means that if you pay too much up front for the dropship products you will sell on eBay, you won’t be able to turn a decent profit on them when they sell.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make sure that your wholesale dropship product supplier ships promptly and uses secure packaging. Customers tend to get irate if they have to wait an inordinately long time to get their widget and really get snaky if it is improperly packaged and arrives smashed to smithereens.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be honest about a time frame for delivery. You don’t have to spill the beans that the product is being dropshipped, but do tell the truth about an estimated date of delivery. People usually don’t mind a little longer wait to get their item if they were forewarned, but if you mislead them into expecting a faster delivery than is possible; they may become disgruntled.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use your own product descriptions instead of the ones on your wholesale product source’s website and if possible, your own images, as well. There are multiple benefits to this. First of all you can make your descriptions really sing with great SEO that will help you in search if you write them yourself. You can also have more and better images if you take the photos yourself, offering more views, for instance. People like plenty of great images. Besides that, you can bet that you won’t be the only eBay seller who is listing a particular dropship product. So, to stand out from---and above---the pack having your own distinctive images and descriptions will be a big help!</li> </ul> <br>Use these tips to be super successful on eBay with dropshipping!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92682/How-to-Be-Super-Successful-on-eBay-with-Dropshipping&bvt=rss">Madison ClaireMon, 24 Dec 2012 01:33:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:92682http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91187/With-Dropshipping-No-Inventory-Means-No-Overstocking-Any-Product#Comments0With Dropshipping No Inventory Means No Overstocking Any Producthttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91187/With-Dropshipping-No-Inventory-Means-No-Overstocking-Any-Product<br><iframe id="img-1352131579014" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/TnY3LBkqros" frameborder="0" height="315" width="420"></iframe><br><br> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">With Drop Ship Access, no stocking of inventory means no overstocking of any product.

Computers, printers, fax machines and so on can be costly. If you wait and purchase one or all of these items next month, it will be almost a year before you can get the tax credit for it. This also applies to home office furniture or anything else you need in order to run your home dropship business. Don’t forget that you can also deduct your landline and cell phone if you have an ecommerce business. The phones themselves are deductible, along with the monthly service charge.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Thinking that it might be helpful to attend a business conference? Do it now. Business trips are 100% tax deductible and if the trip you decide to attend is in Florida or sunny California---so much the better.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>If you haven’t been keeping all receipts organized for your business expenses, get started and get them in order now. You certainly don’t want to short yourself when it comes to deductions!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be aware that since your office is in your home, you can legally deduct a certain amount of your mortgage or rent, as long as your office space is not used for anything else. In other words, if you conduct all of your dropship business on your laptop while sitting in a recliner in your den or living room---you can’t claim this deduction. The IRS states that home office space must be used “regularly and exclusively” for the operation of your business in order to qualify. This is also applicable to your utilities, insurance, property tax, etc. A general rule of thumb is that if your home office makes up approximately 10% of your home, you can deduct 10% of all those expenses.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Got a website? Don’t forget to deduct any and all costs associated with it if it’s used for your ecommerce home dropship business.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use any freelance help for graphics, website maintenance or design, copywriting or other jobs associated with your home business? Deduct what you paid for these services.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>If you are selling on eBay or Amazon, you can deduct all the fees you pay to sell your dropship items there. You may also deduct Paypal or Google Checkout Merchant fees. Ditto for what you might pay to a credit card company if you’re set up to take credit card payments.</li> </ul> <br>These are only a few of the tax deductions you may be entitled to if you operate an ecommerce dropship home business, so to make sure you don’t miss any and cheat yourself, you might consider getting an accountant to do your taxes or investing in some good tax software.<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92330/7-Timely-Tax-tips-for-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Home-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 12 Dec 2012 00:07:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:92330http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91772/6-Steps-to-Successful-Dropship-Selling-on-eBay#Comments06 Steps to Successful Dropship Selling on eBayhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91772/6-Steps-to-Successful-Dropship-Selling-on-eBay<br><img id="img-1375411969380" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/ebayxmaslogo.jpg" alt="dropship selling eBay" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">While we may get irate with eBay due to their constant “disruptive changes” and seller unfriendly policies, the fact remains that they are still a force to be reckoned with in the world of ecommerce, so you might be glad to get a few tips for successful <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship " target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong> </a>selling on eBay.<br><br>eBay and Amazon are the two giant online marketplaces. Both are good venues for dropship selling, and don’t believe any of the stuff you might read or hear to the contrary.<br><br>True, there have been those who tried to dropship on eBay and were dismal failures.<br><br>But, look at it this way: those folks may well have been dismal failures at any other undertaking, not just eBay. If your work habits are lousy, if you give lousy customer service or use a crummy wholesale products source that sends out inferior, substandard items that are going to malfunction right off the bat; your buyers will be unhappy and you will not be successful dropship selling on eBay.<br><br>Is this the fault of the dropship business model?<br><br>Of course not.<br><br>The truth is that there are many who are successful as dropship sellers on eBay. Amazon, too, but we’re focusing on eBay at the moment.<br><br>Success with dropshipping on eBay depends on a combination of things. Here are 7 steps to successful dropship selling on eBay:<br><br> <ul> <li>Research your niche thoroughly. Regardless of where you sell---eBay or anywhere else, online or off---you must be offering a product that is in demand by enough people to ensure you a steady stream of traffic and sales. Your niche is crucial to the success of your dropshipping efforts on eBay. Choose a hot item in great demand and, provided you do everything else right, you are almost bound to do well.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make sure the price is right for your dropship products. If you price your items too high, you will not get many sales. Especially since you almost certainly won’t be the only seller who has a particular widget. If your competitors are offering the product for considerably less than your price, why would shoppers want to buy from you? Research and determine the average market price and go with it.</li> </ul> &nbsp;<br> <ul> <li>Have fantastic titles! Your titles are of utmost important on eBay. First of all, this is how the search engines find the products shoppers are looking for. For example, if a shopper does a search for “mink coat” and you are selling a mink coat; your item will show up in the search results provided you have those keywords in your title. Use your main keywords as close to the beginning of your title as possible. For instance, if you are selling a pair of Levi jeans, your title should say “Levi Jeans” in the first two words. You can fluff it out with style, size and other stuff after you get those all-important keywords in there.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Have fantastic images! Remember that online shoppers are unable to actually see or touch your dropship products, so your pictures should be great. Offer several views of the widget if possible, including at least one close up shot. Tweak your photos to make them look professional. Take a free online course in digital photography to help you take really good photos if you need some help. It will pay off in increased sales!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use fantastic descriptions! Again, since eBay shoppers can’t really see the items you’re selling, tell them about them in great and comprehensive detail. A good rule of thumb for ecommerce is to take your pictures as though there is no description and write your descriptions as though there were no pictures. Be sure to cover every important detail. This not only provides shoppers with enough info to make a buying decision, it also cuts way down on the number of questions you’ll have to answer.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Give excellent customer service! Customer service will make or break you in the sales business and this is especially true on eBay. Since buyers are able to leave feedback and rate your products, communication, shipping time and costs….you need to make customer service a priority. If you get much bad feedback or many low ratings, you won’t be selling on eBay long. While some people adhere to the philosophy that the customer is always right, they might have missed the point of this wise old saying. It probably doesn’t mean that the customer is always literally right, but that you should act as if this were the case, for the sake of your business. Again, this is even more true on eBay since your customers have the power to end your selling career.</li> </ul> <br>Use these 6 steps for successful dropship selling on eBay and you should be fine!<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91772/6-Steps-to-Successful-Dropship-Selling-on-eBay&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 23 Nov 2012 21:16:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:91772http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91256/Do-eBay-Wholesale-Dropshippers-Make-Money#Comments1Do eBay Wholesale Dropshippers Make Money?http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91256/Do-eBay-Wholesale-Dropshippers-Make-Money<br><img id="img-1375412039419" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/eBayxmaslogo.jpg" alt="ebay wholesale dropshippers" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">You might have heard and read on the internet the horror stories by naysayers who claim that you can’t <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> successfully on eBay and are now wondering: Do eBay wholesale drop shippers make money?<br><br>Well, we’ll begin with a short and sweet answer to that question and put your mind at rest about it before moving on.<br><br>Do eBay wholesale dropshippers make money?<br><br>Yes.<br><br>Yes, they do. If they didn’t, why would people keep on keeping on---dropshipping on eBay? When you stop and think about it, common sense would tell you that if eBay dropship sellers weren’t coming out ahead---way ahead in all probability---they would cease operations, fold up their tents and leave for greener pastures.<br><br>This isn’t what’s happening.<br><br>Instead, eBay wholesale dropshippers are going on week after week, month after month and year after year…..selling dropship products on eBay and doing it successfully. <h3><span style="color: #339966;"><strong>Can YOU Make Money on eBay as a Dropshipper?</strong></span></h3> <br>Okay, other people are doing it. But, the $64,000 question is: can YOU do it? Can you make money as an eBay drop shipper? What does it take to be successful on eBay with dropship products?<br><br>Unfortunately, that question doesn’t have as clear cut and straightforward an answer as the previous one simply because whether or not you are successful as an eBay dropshipper depends on several things.<br><br>Let’s look at what it takes to make a nice income on eBay with dropship products.<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #339966;"><strong>Success with Dropshipping on eBay</strong></span></h3> Here are some of the main requirements for being a successful eBay dropshipper:<br><br> <ul> <li>You must choose wisely when you select a wholesale product source; you have to be able to get true wholesale prices in order to make enough profit to make your efforts viable. You can’t buy retail and sell retail. It won’t work because there is no margin for profit. So, choose a product supplier with genuine wholesale prices.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You must choose a product source with high quality products. Frankly, eBay buyers have become overindulged and often unreasonable. They might tolerate a big online retail store selling them an inferior product without getting totally bent out of shape about it. But take this to the bank--they won’t cut you any slack and will almost certainly leave you bad feedback and ratings. So, make sure the products are up to snuff.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You must choose a product source who will keep you in the loop about low stock, so that you don’t oversell. Again---eBay buyers have become such pampered darlings that even though most wouldn’t bat an eye at having an order canceled by Sears or JC Penney; they’ll be out for your blood if you have to cancel their order due to the item being unavailable.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be very careful about auctions. Bidding wars used to be the order of the day on the Bay, but not anymore. Nowadays, most items go for the opening bid and not a farthing more. So, if you think to avoid paying such high listing fees by starting your widgets off at $0.99 be prepared to have them sell for $0.99. Ouch! Fixed price is probably a better bet, plus it gets those impulse buyers who don’t want to wait for an auction to end. If you must list in auction format, it is highly recommended to start your opening bid at the lowest price you’re comfortable with selling your product.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You don’t have to spill your guts and reveal to your buyers that you’re dropshipping their products. But, you don’t need to lie or give them unrealistic time frames for delivery, either. Be honest about how long it will take for their package to arrive and all should be well.

Rumor is that this is because eBay refused to allow Google Wallet as an accepted payment method.<br><br>eBay says this is because it isn’t safe. This is ridiculous, of course, since internet research shows that Google Wallet is as safe or safer than most other online payment methods.<br><br>The real reason eBay has no intention of allowing Google Wallet as an accepted method of payment is more probably that they don’t own it like they do Paypal, their cash cow, and wouldn’t get the big hunk of fees from it the way they get from Paypal. <br><br>While this makes perfect sense from eBay’s perspective, there is simply no denying that it has hurt eBay sellers, dropship and otherwise. Sellers who used to see a large percentage of their visits coming via Google are now feeling the pain as those referrals are lost for the most part. <br><br> <h3><span style="color: #008080;"><strong>Get Proactive About Attracting Visitors</strong></span></h3> <br>So, unable to rely on Google these days and with eBay’s search engine being in a constant state of flux and continually broken in one way or another; an eBay dropship seller will have to get proactive about attracting visitors to listings and converting visitors to buyers.<br><br>So, how can an eBay dropship seller do this? How can you boost traffic to your listings and improve your conversion rate?<br><br>Here are a few timely tips that will help increase traffic and boost sales for eBay dropship sellers:<br><br> <ul> <li><strong>Great Titles:</strong> eBay has increased the number of characters allowed now in a title, so you have more scope to be descriptive and put your keywords to good use. Follow best SEO practices just as you would anywhere else on the net. For example, try to use your best keywords in the beginning of the title if possible. There is a free resource that can help you see how well your title and keywords will perform. It’s the eBay Research Labs BayEstimate. Try it out <strong><a href="http://labs.ebay.com/erl/demoto/to?" title="here" target="_blank">here</a>.</strong></li> </ul> <br><br> <ul> <li><strong>Great Photos:</strong> You don’t need to be a professional photographer or buy a pricey camera to take good eBay pics. There are numerous free online courses that can give you a lot of very helpful how-to tips about taking great photos. There is a good one <a href="http://malektips.com/digital_cameras_help_and_tips.html " title="here." target="_blank"><strong>here.</strong></a> You need to have a good backdrop, enough light, take several views and tweak your photos if necessary so that the colors are true. Don’t resize your photos too small, keep them a nice size for online viewing. Shoppers LOVE photos, so make yours as good as they can be to attract more click throughs to your listings.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li><strong>Use Loss Leaders:</strong> Some people tend to think of eBay as being different than regular ecommerce. While it’s true that there are some differences,&nbsp; they aren’t fundamental differences. Ecommerce is ecommerce is ecommerce. The same sales techniques that work for an online store outside of eBay will work nicely on eBay. Offer an item---preferably a well known designer brand---at a low starting price such as $.99 or even a penny. That listing will attract scads of visitors to your listings &amp; will help you sell more of your other items.</li> </ul> <br>These three tips can help increase your eBay dropship visitors and&nbsp;sales! <br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" id="hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=9b2b2c6f-0a1c-4629-9acd-1f31e11b43b0&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90011/3-Tips-for-Getting-More-eBay-Dropship-Visitors-Sales&bvt=rss">Greg ScottFri, 28 Sep 2012 19:52:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:90011http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/89530/Work-From-Home-Tips-3-Top-Dropshipping-Sites#Comments0Work From Home Tips: 3 Top Dropshipping Siteshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/89530/Work-From-Home-Tips-3-Top-Dropshipping-Sites<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/blueribbon.jpg" alt="dropshipping sites" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you want to turn your back on a dead end job and start your own ecommerce business so that you can work from home and be your own boss, you may be interested in a little info about 3 top <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping " target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong> </a>sites.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br><br>First of all, if you’re considering building a home business around dropshipping, you’re already one step ahead of the game. <br><br>Why?<br><br>Because a home dropship business is undoubtedly the fastest, easiest and least costly of all home businesses to start up. In fact, you can get your business up and running---making money---in a few hours, literally.<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #008080;">What Do Great Dropshipping Sites Need?</span></h3> <p><br>There are multiple correct answers to that question, but one of the most important things you want to look for in dropshipping sites is traffic.<br><br>Traffic and plenty of potential customers will convert to plenty of sales and profits if you play your cards right. Without a good, steady stream of traffic, you simply cannot hope to make as much money as with dropshipping sites that have an abundance of global traffic 24/7.<br><br>You also need dropshipping sites that have a solid, established reputation. Remember that when you conduct your business online, you are totally dependent on your dropshipping site to stay up and running in order to keep making money.<br><br>When GoDaddy crashed earlier this week, thousands or possibly even millions of small online businesses were affected. GoDaddy hosts approximately 5 million sites. <br><br>GoDaddy is a reputable web host and probably no host is hacker proof, but this is just an example of what can happen, even to a huge outfit like GoDaddy. So you definitely should think twice before trying to pare expenses by hooking up with some small, fly by night web host.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><span style="color: #008080;">3 Top Dropshipping Sites</span></h3> <br>Here are three that are favored by many ecommerce entrepreneurs as top dropshipping sites:<br><br>1.
