Dropshipping with ebay

Registration as private / professional
If you want to do dropshipping on eBay, the first thing you have to do is complete your registration. You will be asked for an email address, a phone number, the first and last name, and a password. If you register as a professional, you should add the name, legal form and registration number of your company.
If you are a beginner I advise you to start as an individual. After, you can and start selling as a professional.

Online posting and description of new products
You can put products online, up to 50 items for free per month. Beyond you can always add other items for € 0.35 each. It is very important to work on your SEO. The importance of images for the sale of your product is noted. You can create your own unique, high-quality images.
It is important to note that eBay has an 8% commission on the final sale price, which is retained only after the sale has been completed, up to a maximum of € 200. These values ​​are different for the "engine" category.
If you want to automatically synchronize Ebay with BigBuy (catalog, stock, send and carriers, orders, price ...), the best way is to do it via Multi-channel Integration Platform. This tool is perfectly integrated with emarketplace and avoids the manual work of CSV files.

Choose the payment method
PayPal is the most recommended by eBay. This pioneering company in online payments enjoys a good reputation and the system is recommended and recognized by millions of users every day.

Sale and delivery of article
Before sending your article, it is recommended to verify that the payment has been made. Once you have made sure of this, log in to your admin panel and mark the command as "sent".
In our case, since we do dropshipping, we have to manage the order with the supplier and make the shipment directly from his address to the customer's home. You must always make sure that the shipment is made under your brand name and in neutral packaging boxes. The end customer should not know, and certainly will not appreciate to discover that you are using a dropshipping system.
To keep the eBay community active and secure, it is important to provide purchase and buyer ratings. This will be reciprocal and you will also be evaluated as a seller. In a market where items can be very similar, having a high rate of positive feedback can be a benefit and help you achieve more sales.
The disadvantage is that if mistakes are made, they will be shared with the rest of the community and will be visible forever on your profile and in vendor ratings.
Find good products and a good dropshipping supplier:
This is definitely the key to success. Before learning how to do dropshipping strictly speaking, you must clearly know which products you are going to sell and who will be your dropshipping supplier. there is fierce competition on eBay and other e-marketing platforms. The difference is small details about the product and the potential customer will pay particular attention to two things: price and delivery time. It is essential to have a good dropshipping provider to be able to optimize these two points.
First you need to find a supplier who has attractive products that can be purchased on the internet. Above all, you need competitive prices to which you can add your profit margin and always have a reasonable final selling price for the public. If on top of that you have the best possible delivery terms (we are referring to costs and conditions), it is likely that your potential customers will ultimately choose you.
