Default Dropshipping?

I bought a stealth account and I want to ship an item directly from the manufacturer, is it risky to have stock photos and brand new packaging?
Also it's worth about $200, should I worry if it's my first listing?

$200 for the first item your selling on an account. That sounds like way too much.

Stock photos from where? Google? That's risky

Ive always used stock pics from Amazon. no time or patience for real pics. Never had problems.

Depends on the item. 200 might not be an issue. Its the type of item. Gopros, etc, PROBLEM guaranteed

If you're dropshipping you have no other choice, but to use stock photos. I'm sure you delete meta from those photos, right?

Very lazy approach. Serious business shall be run seriously. Get yourself one of the items and take the necessary photos.

The item may not sell, so you'd be stuck with the product. Recently I've tested 10 products and none sold on eb, but on other sites my items sell.... odd
