Drop Shipping to Buyers on eBay

What if I told you that drop shipping products from Amazon to eBay could put thousands of dollars in profit per month in your pocket? – You don’t have to pack anything, you don’t have to keep any items in stock, and there is little to no work involved, I ask would you do it?


How to handle Amazon Returns:

Many people ask me what they should do about when an eBay buyer wants to return an Amazon product to you, and I recommend that you list all auctions with a 14 day return policy and allow the buyers to return the merchandise and also refund shipping costs to the buyer. Never give partial refunds and never opt into eBay’s Return Merchandise Program because it’s a scam. Make sure you also note your return policy information within your auction descriptions. You also want to state that returns need to be shipped back using a tracking number and that you will refund the buyer as soon as you verify the returned merchandise. Let your buyer know he will get a “RMA#”, this number can be the last 6 digits of the eBay item number. Let your buyer know to include the number inside the box.

Because there are many buyers looking to defraud you, if you don’t get back the actual item from the buyer that you shipped, notify eBay right away. Inspect the item and if the item is actually broken, send it back to Amazon for a refund otherwise list it with a different title and new photos. If the buyer is fraudulent and eBay rules in the favor of the buyer in a dispute you have to take the loss, that is the name of the game when dealing with eBay Inc and complaining and arguing about it with eBay “customer sabotage service” may get you shut down.

About the Global Shipping Program:

eBay will most likely enter you into the global shipping program without your knowledge if you ship abroad. I suggest not shipping outside the United States and opting out of this program else you will find that your items will arrive to your buyer damaged. Pitney Bowes is a third party shipping company handling international shipping for eBay’s top rated sellers. They will re-package your items in order to save money on shipping weight while you bear the brunt of negative feedback for damaged goods. Use your own shipping service such as DHL if you’re going to ship abroad.

Good luck,
