How to Make Money as an eBay Dropshipper

ebay dropshippers ecommerce tipsCan you really make decent money as an eBay dropshipper?

This is a much debated question and there are scads of naysayers all over the internet saying that you absolutely, positively cannot make any money as a dropship seller on eBay.

These are the most vocal ones, the killjoys that scoff at the very idea of making money with wholesale dropship products on eBay.

But the truth is that there is a whole other faction out there who is not talking about making money on eBay---they are just quietly going about the business of doing it.

There are many, many eBay dropship sellers!

Looking at it realistically, would these sellers stay on eBay, month after month, if they weren’t making money?

Of course not!

So, the true answer to the question of whether or not you can make money as an eBay dropshipper is Yes. Yes, you can! However, it won’t be a cakewalk. You must be ready to make a commitment to doing what it takes to be successful.

Like any other retail or e-tail business, you will have to adopt a hands on approach to generating traffic to your listings, making sales, and building a solid base of repeat customers.

How Can You Drive Traffic to Your eBay Listings?

There are several ways to drive traffic to your eBay listings. Here are a few:

  • Offer free shipping. Research has shown that online buyers, including those on eBay, love free shipping and will gravitate toward it even if the total price of an item is the same or more than another store or seller offering the identical item for less money, but with a shipping charge. The trick here is to factor the shipping cost into your price.

  • Use email marketing. Ebay has a very good system all set up to help you launch and maintain a successful email marketing campaign. To make the most of email marketing, you must actively solicit viewers and buyers to subscribe to your mailing list. Make it worth their while and it will be worth yours. For instance, you might offer half off shipping on their next purchase if they sign up to get your emails, or something along that line.

  • Make your titles pack a punch! Use the eBay Research Labs keyword tool to help you write a great title using the buzz words that drive traffic to your listings. Many sellers make the mistake of using crummy titles and then wonder why they aren’t making any sales. You have 54 characters---use them wisely!

Those are just a few things that will help you get sales on eBay. There are others. But the point is that the sales are there, waiting to be made by an enterprising dropship seller!
