Default Dropshipping & Amazon

I dropship on eBay, and have had some succes, but was wondering if dropshipping would be better on Amazon as I know Amazon is way more bigger than eBay?

1. Cant have invoices included by seller other than yourself.

2. Has to be fulfilled by a third party, like a warehouse, that you possibly own or pay to keep/ship inventory.

Beyond that, cant help.

If you do retail arbitrage the rules are much more strict on amazon than on eBay so you need to really have a set supplier . If you can keep your metrics up - then yes amazon would be better than eBay as they have much more traffic . I know people that are able to sell millions a year on amazon with the help of a lot of VAs .

yes I wondered about that VA thing, wonder about the benefits of doing the research manually as opposed to software.

You can do dropshipping from Online Retailers with Amazon, its against their policy and people get banned for it, that being said it is a business model that has a lot of success as well. As long as you follow not listing brands which have been known to list complaints - OAgenius and Webscraperapp both have lists with 1000+ brands, and this protects you decently, and also maintaining great metrics and making sure everything is out on time and keeping up with customers. If you dropship from online retailers try to find ones that dont incldue invoices for example webscraperapp supports a website called https://www.cleanitsupply.com/ they dont include invoices with their orders at all, and im sure the boxes they use dont really have any kind of indication of where it came from like walmart or target etc. this is much more discreet and safe.

It is easier because Amazon will take credit more 99% of the negative feedback/customer service part. As long as you are shipping in the correct items but the long term storage fees are ridiculous.

dropshipping on amazon is totally cool and they have no problem with it at all. Retail arbitrage is what they dont like and they will shut you down and most likely not return any funds they are holding of yours :( although some do it successfully it is indeed tough.

Unless you dont have the money to stock up.

Amazon gets to know that your are dropshipping mainly from customers who are frustrated. They mention stuff about the package and receipt in their messages. Also, when you are processing returns. The system can also see that your shipments are coming from all over the place none of which correspond with your address
