You can definitely expect negatives. Some people are more patient than others, but you are talking about a minimum of a 2 week wait - and most people will not think that is reasonable. Most people do NOT read the listings that carefully, so putting a statement in there may help a little, but it will not solve the problem.

If you are attempting to withdraw the money from PayPal BEFORE you buy and ship the item, they will get wind of it and close your account. eBay and PayPal don't like drop-shipping to begin with, but they tolerate it if the seller places the order immediately and the customer gets it in a reasonable time.

The thing about dropshipping is that it transfers the risk from the seller to eBay. Someone with no money decides they want to be in business. So, they list on eBay with the intention of getting the money upfront, then ordering the item for the customer. The problem with this is that eBay is now exposed to a buyer protection claim if anything goes south. The seller, who either has no money, or refuses to put any of their money at risk, will not likely make good if there is a refund or another problem. eBay, I'm sure, has lost money like this before many, many times.

like others have said ebay buyers dont know how to read. Make sure the first line in your auction states the turn around time, make it big and bold so they understand this. I have found that 95% of the buyers will read the first few lines of the auction if it is big bold kindergarten sized letters.

Oh, yeah, one other thing...

If your dropship supplier is in China sending Trademarked or Copyrighted items to your customers, forget it. You will DEFINITELY lose the account.

All it takes is for ONE customer to get a US Customs Seizure Letter. Those are SCARY! That will definitely generate a complaint and, quite possibly, a lawsuit.

It is against Ebay policy to list items that you do not have in your possession when you place the listing.

I've been dropshipping for awhile. If you do it right you can get away with it, just make it clear in the listings. I see people do it all the time, and I do it every holiday season with no problem. Usually the item gets to the buyers within a week, or week 1/2. I don't know where you're dropshipping from, but i let them know that the items will be shipped "EMS", along with how long they should expect to wait on the item, and I state that this item will be shipping from "my warehouse".


By the way, now that i think of it, when i dropshipped to much on 1 account paypal asked for my suppliers info, i created excellent ⊗⊗⊗⊗ info from a big time reputable china supplier website, and they uplifted my paypal limit. If you're not the creative type, and still want to dropship without giving paypal to much attention. Sell your items, and purchase your items using a different paypal account, or western union, if you're on dhgate, you should start transfering money from the bank account, that way your paypal account attached to your ebay account can't see what the heck you're doing.
