Default Dropshipping using Amazon Prime

Hello. There are many different opinions in the internet. Some people say it is no problem to dropship using Prime. Others say - it will ban you quickly.

I would like to hear real opinions from people who knows from their own experience.

You do get banned pretty fast. That comes from talking to a lot of people that have tried it

The issue is dropshippers abuse Amazon's prime service using the 1 month trial.

If you were to dropship without using their prime service, I would assume it could work.

Dropshipping using Prime 100% work on UK side, just dont do 2 days shipping + dont use trial Prime account and you will be fine.
On US there is different story to using Amazon for dropship.

If your not using the 2 days shipping (or 1 day for UK) - then why do you need the prime membership?

Ok, but cancelling a Prime account is nothing. You can make another in 5 minutes

Has anyone here tried dropshipping from Prime to customers using an ecommerce website? Also, wouldn't it be better to have items shipped to your home first, and afterwards ship items to customers yourself?

I could see that working - but you need to constantly be investing in traffic to your site which may kill any profit made.

As for your other question, if you ship to customers after receiving it, yet again your killing profits. But if the item is more profitable, you can get away with it.

That would just defeat the point of drop shipping really.

The idea behind drop shipping is to never hold any stock and only pay for shipping once. As soon as you start having to reship an item you have to pay for P&P again and that really cuts into profit.

What credit card do you use?
Prime trials dont accept Vanilla. Having to buy a 10 dollar pre paid and adding address to it is not a 5 minute process.

Plus, now youre stuck with 10 dollar pre paid cards.

Ive seen buyer accounts last about 5 to 6 orders before they get suspended

Thank you very much for the information. Has anyone tried ordering stuff with gift cards? I heard people use that to avoid being banned from Amazon.

Also, how to do check stock and prices? Is it fine to use Hydralister and Skugrid? Or it has any disadvantages?

I've been dropshipping with Amazon for many years, Prime and non prime

Amazon and Ebay are awash with Amazon dropshippers, some with 100's of 000's of feedback

I see two problems with this. Customer will see price of item dropshipped to them via Amazon, which will upset them. If they do not see the price, it is because you'd have to request seller to not be hide price for each transaction, which would become tiring/look suspicious.

The second issue is that beginners starting off will need FUNDS of their own to purchase items via Amazon, because paypal may or may not hold funds, which would destroy their business if this happens. With an ecommerce website, it would be easier once you gain traffic, which is one of my many goals.

So true. Ive had many ebay accounts get suspended based on dropshipping. Im like " You know you have so many accounts blatantly dropshipping for years and you do NOTHING to them but then I come along with 100 percent and bam, suspsended" Just wondering why ebay lets some slide where its as obvious as the sun shining. Like those power sellers etc.

There are ways and means

True always better to have capital, although you can get lucky and ave no holds.

I started dropshipping with 0

I dropshipped 8 yrs ago, but my account was established at the time. I'm not sure if pp will hold my business account funds for eBay, or not. I'm too scared to list items and take the risk, because I'd need $$$ to dropshipped, but it would help me big time if they didn't. Currently from other platforms they release my funds instantly, but each transaction is in the $5-$60 range, and maybe 3-4 transactions weekly.
