Exclamation Strange buyer

I don't know if this is off topic or not pleas if it is remove it.

The question is the following. There is a buyer that bought 10 of the same item on my stores but when I print the shipping label for each transaction it shows a different address in a in a different state of the country.

I look at his feedback and he has done the same with different sellers buy a bunch of the same stuff I mailed them to know if they also got different addresses for each item.

Do you think I should ship the items?

This happens a LOT,,,Most Likely someone who Sells on another Platform like Amazon who is using you as some sort of Dropshipper,,,I have even had guys Buy from me on Ebay and Compete with me on Amazon, I know, because they use the Same username on Both sites,,

I would Not worry,,,If they are Expensive Items Contact him and ask,,What Gives???,,and then make your decision based on the response that you get,,,You could always call Ebay, They will Steer you in the right direction as well,,,

Yea, if it was somebody like that. I would just try to contact them maybe you can save yourself the eBay and PayPal fees. Get paid direct from them then just drop ship. If it is worth while that is.

Or bad if you dont know for whom you are dropshipping - sub-10 orders is ok but if it gets repetitive, best to know what's going on

I would leave your ebay store info or business card inside the package if you wanted to get their direct business next time. I've had a similar situation like yours and acquired a large bulk customer by simply putting a business card inside the package.
