I've been looking into the whole eBay business thing and I thought it would be a reat idea to open up my own store and start to sell things around the house. But then I started to realize that I'll eventually run out of things to sell. After that what can I sell? So I looked into the whole drop shipping deal and it just doesn't seem like it would work for me? So I like to know if you have use a drop shipping company to sell products on eBay before? If so, was a good experience working for that company ?

I did open a store and I am quickly running out of things to sell so if you happen to come across a really good dropshipper, please do let me know! I would appreciate it!

That's the same problem that I was afraid of. There must be a good drop shipper out there somewhere...

Well, I am sure you will find something to sell. I sell things around the house and I also sell things that I find on sale or clearance that I think will sell. I get things from garage sales and thrift stores, too. I make at least $100 a month...usually around $300 a month...and that's just selling things I find here and there. It depends on what I have and how much I work on it.

Whoaa that's really encouraging. I'm planning on selling things on ebay right now, but first I just gotta gather some things to sell.

Hey sir_talk_alot Why don't you search for wholesale item sellers on Ebay India .. they are selling so many items on wholesale prices which are of real good quality and you will make a good profit out of it.. even I sell my products to resellers who used to buy items in wholesale and hence they save a lot on shipping as well as the product cost .. like suppose u purchased bags from me in wholesale quantity at a very reasonable price .. and in your country -- United States u can sell it at a very high rate .. In this way u can earn a lot -- u can visit my store here -- http://stores.ebay.in/touchnshine as well as I will suggest you to do some normal search on www.ebay.in and you will find many sellers who provides this wholesale facility specially for users worldwide :)

I looked into a few dropshippers one that I signed up at is dropshipdirect.com It doesn't cost anything. The big problem is finding products to sell that are not already all ready all over e-bay. I found a few things I'd like to sell, and then checked e-bay only to find tons of them already on there. When there are a bunch already there, you have to cut into your profit margin to make the sale. The key to it is to find items that are not already there. Another place to look at is liquidation.com They sell bulk lots of product from different places. I've thought of using them for product to sell, I just haven't got around to it yet. But it looks like thay have product that could be purchesed for a little investment. Robert http://rtsweb.homeip.net

don't try to find an online drop shipper. You need real wholesale prices to compeat, and socalled wholesale dropshippers online are not whole sale. they are middle men who have already marked up the price. Get a tax id from your state, you will need this becouse a real whole saler will ask for this. Don't look online, go thrugh yellow pages or yellowbook on line for a whole seller that has no minumum or little minumun so that you only have to purchase small amounts of product and ship it yourself UPS or other Currier. Their are also light bulk wholesellers they shipp a small quantity that you can store in your garage. they will ask for trade references and for credit. but if you inform them you will pay cash you can get arround this. first do some reserch on what sells on ebay and for how much. Clothes are prety big and there are places online and off where you can purchase used clothing and overstock and out of season clothing for as little as .50 per pound. One good online sourse for products to sell is OverStock.com . Look under bulk and by the pallet. Good prices and these are overstock items, not use or returns. Hope this helps
