It's dropshippers. Not a big fan of thoose but they dont hyrt My biz
Try sell the cables locally if they are to hard to get rid of through ebay, personally i would sell them for a price that made me Some profit if the biz gets slow i just lower the price, sometimes i only earn a buck but get a valuable feedback instead

Not everbody but many sellers sell with +-0 profit just to get feedback, then they sell highrisk items with $$$ profit. Thoose who go the other way around often ends up with a ban

Never scoff at any profit - whatever brings you some joy and allows you to build/live...it counts
