Default Does Amazon to eBay dropshipping still work, or too saturated?

I've read various posts, all from a year or more ago, about some success using Terapeak to do Amazon to eBay dropshipping, along with a few tools to create the listings, etc. Does this still work with the Terapeak updates and what must be increased saturation?

Default Re: Does Amazon to eBay dropshipping still work, or too saturated?

I do not know how people do it because most prices are cheaper on ebay.

I ordered an item from an ebay seller and it came in the amazon fba box which I thought was against ebay rules. ?

he is selling the same item on Amazon for twice the money. Why would he sell for so much less on ebay then? Just to get the sales or he/she bought this item for pennies.

Competition sells this item on ebay for 85.00, he sold it for to me for 35 shipped. He has it for sale on amazon for 99.00.

What am I missing here?

To the best of my knowledge it doesn't violate any eBay rules, but it will certainly make customers mad and earn you some negative feedback when the buyer realizes you shipped their eBay order using FBA. I've seen countless negative feedbacks saying something like "order arrived in Amazon box, I could have bought from Amazon for $10 less".

@OP - I'm sure you would get some sales if you were to set up a bunch of eBay-AZ dropship listings but I can't imagine that would be a successful long-term business plan. Like you said it's already highly saturated, and like post #2 says items sold on eBay are generally cheaper priced than items sold on Amazon.

You're missing the key details:

The item arrived in an FBA box, not a regular Amazon box. The seller requested the item be shipped to his buyer from his own FBA inventory, and he actually sells the item at a far higher price on Amazon.

It's not really "drop-shipping" per-se, but rather having someone else handle your products shipment.

No one is going to tell you what products you can make money with.

ANY product category can be profitable with lots of TIME and RESEARCH.

But keep in mind your hours and hours of research can easily be copied in MINUTES by ONE person, DESTROYING your product sourcing.

Default Re: Does Amazon to eBay dropshipping still work, or too saturated?

i used to do dropshipping from ebay to amazon but it can sometimes be complicated. I had a pretty good success ratio though i would say 60-70% of the time it worked.

If you put in lets say 20k and do your research properly you can easily net 5k a month.

This was back in 2013 though i dont see how it is still profitable though I personally believe the market is completely saturated at this point.

EBay to Amazon. Is more profitable. And no paper trail unless eBay seller uses that dahm free tape..lol.
But stock to keep on hand for when options are low. But you can save on shipping at the very least.

Default Re: Does Amazon to eBay dropshipping still work, or too saturated?

I just did my research for the last few days,

I would say the market is not saturated, I probably will try to get back into Amazon selling again but will do FBA this time......

Honestly, I do not want to deal with shipping, returns, and customer service email questions...........

I am getting to be an old man now looking to retire.....in my late 20s.........i am looking for passive residual income.......stocks, real estate, cryptos,

and amazon FBA only where i dont want to run around in circles. Getting tired of creating........I want to OWN like gordon gecko would say....

It depends on your product. If you chose fba without knowing your sell threw rate. Amazon will eat you alive

I did it about a year ago.

Made on avg 30 -70 per day, and you really need some kind of lister and price checker to pull it off (paid service which can eat into profits). It helped I could list an unlimited amount too.

Gave up due to dealing with idiot buyers, as it just wasn't worth it.

Yeah i hated doing it because of this reason,

that is why you should do Amazon FBA? let them deal with the buyers.....all you do is collect....
