The fact of the matter is, there are many eBay sellers dropshipping and making a darn good living at it. One must wonder if the dire warnings, gloom and doom predictions and negativity are propaganda put out there by successful eBay drop shippers trying to discourage competition.
Another likely scenario for at least part of the doomsday prophets about eBay and dropshipping is that it’s people who have tried it and failed miserably. The thing to bear in mind about this group of losers is that they would probably have been dismal failures at any undertaking.
Simply because there are many people who go into a business, including a dropship business on eBay, with unrealistic expectations that are downright silly. No, you can’t put in a few minutes every now and then and expect to make money dropshipping on eBay.
No, you can’t merely throw some stuff up there without researching to find a good niche and expect to set the woods on fire with sales.

The people who think that it’s possible to perform so poorly are doomed to failure. Not just on eBay, but anywhere.
Moving right along, now that we’ve cleared up the misconception that eBay sellers can’t thrive using the dropship business model; let’s look at how to source wholesale products for eBay dropshipping.Where to Source Products for Dropshipping on eBay
There are a number of sources available with supposedly wholesale products. That being said, they may or may not be true wholesale product suppliers.
Before you enter into a business arrangement, check out the company for these things:
- Well established
- Member of the Better Business Bureau
- Large selection of products
- High quality products
- Brand name products
- Good communication and business practices
- Genuine wholesale prices
In order to make money with dropship products on eBay, you must be able to buy at real wholesale prices. If you pay retail, or even close to retail, you will not have an ample margin of profit and will go bust in a jiffy.
Make sure that the company will send you low inventory or out of stock notices so that you don’t oversell. If you want to get lots of bad feedback, try selling a lot of items on eBay and then canceling the orders. Ouch! Buyers tend to get irate about this!
You always want to do business with a wholesale product source that carries high quality merchandise. Another way to ruin your eBay reputation in a hurry---or get your selling privileges suspended----is to have your buyers receive poor quality, shoddy products that don’t work right.
