Article by Sudhi

If you look for information regard how to make money with EBAY, then one topic you will

see discussed everywhere. And that is drop shipp. Now lets first understand what is the

mean of that term

Drop Shipp is a special system of supply chain where the wholesaler directly ships the

product to the customer without first going through the retailer. The role of the retailer

here is only to provide the wholesaler with all the details of the customer. So in this case

the retailer is hav much less overhead than from the wholesaler and then sell

in turn to the customer. But still the profit margin for the retailer is same i.e he gets

the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price. But he does not have to

maintain any inventory of the product and neither have to take care of shipp the goods to


Well this same system can be applied in the internet also. To specifically speak of EBAY

what any drop shipper will do is, he will a specific product from the wholesaler and

then sell it in EBAY to the potential customer. But here the will not be physical and

the wholesaler will only ship the product to customer. In return the drop shipper will get

the difference of the price paid by the customer and the wholesale price. The customer will

know that the drop shipper is sell the product and will not necessarily know about whats

go on in the back end.

Now that you know what drop shipp and how it is done in EBAY, the natural question that

comes to mind is: is it an effective way to make money with EBAY. Well people have different

perceptions but the reality is 95% of drop shipper will fail. This is because the wholesaler

will never sell one or two products in wholesale price. If some drop shipper can a whole

lot of products at the same time then only he will provide them in wholesale price. It will

only work if quantity is large! But most of the ordinary drop shippers sell in EBAY are

not capable of do this in such a large scale. And in an auction site like EBAY where

people are look for one or two pieces of a particular product, this idea is not feasible

at all, at least it will not make you a millionaire. Drop Shipp is a business model which

just does not go along well with online auction sites like EBAY.
