Arrow 2020 - is Dropshipping on Ebay Possible

I've been reading around. Some people say no and some say yes. I see that it depends on the type of product and obviously the chances of the product not being as described. But what if that wasn't a factor and it was a low risk product? If there was a supplier who can ship the product pretty fast then I'm golden right? Just have to find the right product for dropshipping.

Does the above seem logical or am I missing something.

It is possible if you do it properly, ie. REAL legit suppliers not garbage "dropshipping" from Amazon/ Aliexpress and other retailers.

REAL dropshipping is hard, you need to establish relationships with REAL businesses which is a pain in the ass to be honest but it is worth it. Be prepared to be told "no" a lot.

Like Squids said, yes it's possible. But you have to follow eBay's rules for dropshipping. Contrary to what some people say, eBay DOES allow dropshipping from wholesale suppliers. You just have to read up on the specifics and do it the right way. You need to establish relationships with legitimate wholesale suppliers.

Dropshipping per se is definitely allowed. What eBay is hunting are those stores doing retail arbitrage.

Ebay has rules for retail arbitrage,not dropshipping.
Unless they caught you arbitraging which means you have no stock,list an item,take his money then go to another retailer to buy and have it shipped the item,thats retail arbitrage.
dropshipping is between you and your wholesale supplier,Ebay can get involved if your buyer complains about your service or product.
There are websites which offer to dropship for you,but there is so much competition,you make pennies

This was the email I received from them the other day.



So like most people said above, yes you can, but you need to do it with a real company that you contact and make a relationship.

EDIT: doesn't look like my picture came through.

Hello,

We’ve determined that you haven’t followed our selling practices - drop shipping policy.

There is evidence on your account that you are purchasing items from an online retail or marketplace site after you sell the item on eBay and having that retailer ship the item directly to the customer. While in violation of this policy, the account will not be eligible for the Top Rated program until it is in compliance.

For more information on this and related policies, please go to:

Drop shipping:

i do dropshipping on ebay from china for last 6 years. It is hard and easy. The main thing - follow rules and work as good as you can. You can not use third party tools to list items, you can not dropship from other marketplaces. When you add products you must put a little brain and heart in your listing, be fast with communication with buyers, do excelent customer service and it will be your main job

There is good money to make in the UK. (i did retail with skugrid)
But now, with their managed payment it's hard to stealth, if you are not UK resident and put your listing location in UK, they will ask a VAT number.
