Default How long to wait before starting to dropship from stealth account.

Hi guys,

I would like to know how long should i wait before i start my drop shipping business on a stealth account?

The items I am planing to sell are not high risk or branded.
They are coming from china and it just will save me time space and money if i can just dropship instead of the items coming to me first.

Just need some info if anyone has done this and there experience.

Thanks

With the scenario you just described my answer would be: forever.

Dropshipping from China is way risky. Did you consider shipping/delivery time and custom issues?

I have done it before but I had a competitor complain and thats how my account got blocked in the first place.
Just this time I'm going with a low risk safer product.
Yes I have considered delivery times and customs.
I am going through my same agent who I have used for 10 years now so the risk is minimal my only risk is getting my account blocked if i start going crazy listing items.

Hopefully you have been selling low risk items as an introduction to selling on your account fiorentinalk, if you have been doing that for a month or so then maybe you can start to introduce some of these new products, but wouldn't be a good idea to start listing them all at once that would probably attract unwanted attention to your account.

Go ahead! It shouldn't cause any problems.

When I first opened my eBay account I sold iPhone cases for small profit from China. In just one month I started making $100-$150 a day dropshipping. I make much more now because I have multiple accounts, sell on other sites and use BHW to sell my wholesale catalog.

A quick question if you don't mind.

How many listing did you have live to be earning $100-200 a day?

Also, please could you expand on the last part regarding BHW and your catalog? I guess you mean Black Hat World?

Thanks!

You can sell cheap stuff from the outset, add a few items per day to start off with perhaps

I personally sell on multiple Ghost ebay accounts thanks to Aspkin. Most of the products I sell are dropshipped from China. So I don't see any reason for you to wait. Just start selling. There shouldn't be any problem as long as your products are low risk.
Also make sure to let you buyers know delivery time will take a while so you don't get any complainants regarding shipping time.

If you really want to do it, my best advice would be to stock a batch where you are.

That way you can start the account off by sending items locally - and gaining feedback / reputation.

Also if ever a customer starts to complain they haven't received item, just send them a replacement from your local stock.

That way you can slightly minimise any risk of suspension.
