Handy Tips for Dropship Selling on eBay

If you have a home business in dropship sales, you might consider selling on eBay!

Despite some changes that have been immensely unpopular with most sellers during the regime of the present CEO John Donahoe, it is still possible to earn a nice income on eBay.

But, in order to be successful with dropship sales on eBay, you must watch your Ps and Qs.

There is not a wide margin for error and if you are a relatively small seller, you will find yourself suspended from selling or restricted to a certain percentage of items you are allowed to sell each month if you receive more than 2-3 low Detailed Seller Ratings and/or bad feedback.

So, here are some tips that will help you navigate the tricky waters of the Bay:

1. eBay will raise your items in search if you offer free shipping. Why? Because eBay only receives a Final Value Free for the amount of the purchase, not including shipping charges. When you factor shipping cost into the price of your widget, eBay makes more money and you get elevated ranking in Best Match search.

2. If you offer free shipping, be sure to ship quickly and download the tracking info or Delivery Confirmation number for each item right away. If you adhere to this practice, buyers will not be allowed to leave anything but a “5” for shipping time and cost. The DSRs are on a scale of 1-5, so this will help your overall ratings.

3. Educate your buyers about the Detailed Seller Ratings! EBay, for some unfathomable reason, has not seen fit to do this, so you will have to do it yourself. When leaving feedback, buyers are told by eBay that a rating of “4” is good when the fact is that an average rating of 4.1 will get a seller suspended. Not good. So, it helps to print up a short little blurb about DSRs and enclose it in each package.

These are only a few things you might do to be successful in dropship sales on eBay, but if you follow these suggestions, it will help keep your ratings where you need them to be!
