for eBay really exists.Click Here For a FREE eBay Dropshipping E-Book!
The answer is no, it doesn’t.
Yes, there are ads on the internet from dropship suppliers who offer “free” dropshipping for eBay. But, are the services really free?
Let’s put it this way: when something sounds too good to be true, it generally isn’t true. When you stop and think about it logically, why would any legitimate business give away its services free?
Bear in mind that we aren’t talking about a free ebook or even a one time deal of free shipping or a free webinar or something easy and basically a one shot thing.
A dropship product supplier not only offers the products for people to sell on eBay and other venues, they are also responsible for:
- Finding those products
- Maintaining a website catalog of the products
- Packaging the products
- Shipping the products
- And much more
This is a BIG deal, folks!
Wouldn’t it be slightly incredible for a business to donate their time, work and efforts---plus foot the bills---for a free dropshipping for eBay service just out of a charitable motive, to help you and others make money while they made none for themselves?
Can we really believe that any business would be that big hearted or could even afford to operate under those conditions?
Of course not.
While free dropshipping for eBay sounds marvelous, it’s not going to happen.
If a business offers free dropshipping for eBay, rest assured that if their service is free, you will be paying dearly for the products you sell. Since any business has to make money somewhere, if a dropship supplier is donating everything except the products, that doesn’t leave any area for profits except on the products themselves.
When you buy for resale, there is a cardinal rule you will ignore to your own detriment: you make your money when you buy, not when you sell.
This simple means that when you buy dropship products for resale on eBay or anywhere else, you must be able to get them at true wholesale prices in order to mark them up to a fair retail price and have ample room for profit on each sale.
If you pay too much from your dropship product supplier, you can’t possibly hope to make enough profit to run a successful home business because the market will only bear a certain price for any product. You won’t be able to go over that price and make enough sales to stay in business.
So, in the long run, you’re better off to pay a nominal, set fee to a dropship supplier and then get your products at genuine, low wholesale prices. At the end of the day, you will recoup your fee many times over because you’re able to make a nice net profit on your items.
Free dropshipping for eBay may sound good, but you need to look before you leap because there are hidden pitfalls!
