In this guide, I’ll be explaining drop shipping and how to do it effectively! This guide can make you a lot of money with no effort. All you have to do is list an item and you make a lot of money.
“Drop shipping is a technique in which the retailer does not keep the goods their own but instead they transfer customer’s order and shipment details to the manufacturer or the wholesaler, then the wholesaler ships the goods at their addresses. The retailer makes the profit by the difference in the price of wholesale”
You list item > Buyer buys item > You give buyers address to wholesale manufacturer> Manufacturer ships goods to buyer
This works as you put a profit margin for yourself.
So where are we going to get the stock so cheap from? Wholesalers obviously! Most of the wholesalers that we are going to use are going to be Chinese wholesalers.
This is a list that I have compiled of wholesalers that I recommend:
For this guide, I’m going to use my favourite! MadeInChina.com. Therefore, I recommend you use MadeInChina.com otherwise you’ll need to try and interpret this information for your particular site.
LETS GET CRACKING!
Set Up – Account on eBay
1. Register on the site you have chosen.
2. Check your email for a confirmation link and confirm your account
Set Up – Choosing a product to sell on eBay
This is a very important part of this process! If you choose a very popular product it will sell!
Ok so… how do we do it? Well, research is involved, do your own research ask your friends that what they buy on eBay. Some wholesalers have a list for you already, like made in china: Click on what’s hot!
So … after you have chosen a product you need to check the pricing! And the how many lots you need to buy.
If you see a price that’s incredible! There’s a catch, you can’t buy 1 product at a time you need buy a lot of products!
As you can see with this image there is a grey subtext which says:
As you can see in this image there is no grey subtext, this means that you can drop ship this item 1 piece at a time!
Now you may have noticed that the items here are really cheap! The reason for this is that the items that are on these sites are normally fake items they look like the originals, however, they are not!
There’s no need to be worried, nothing will happen if you follow my guide directly!
Set Up – eBay
Alright, we’re now on the main part! The part that will make us a lot of money!

After you’ve created an account on eBay or logged into an existing account, we are going to list the item!

Here are some tips for listing your auctions:
For the title do not put the company name such as Nintendo, apple etc. This goes against copyright and if eBay sees this they will unlist your auction!. For the description, you can either copy and paste the wholesalers description or write your own description! Remember you need to include images to make it look visually effective! Remember that you have to list that the item is fake, put it in a small font and try not to draw attention to it! Even better put it under an image! – For the price, it shouldn’t be too high because people won’t buy it, and it shouldn’t be too low because people wouldn’t believe that it’s true. Remember you want to make a profit so put it higher than the wholesale price!. Shipping: set it as worldwide and free.
Set Up – Wholesale on eBay
OK so after you sell the item what do you do?
1. Go back to the wholesale site… and add the product to the cart!
2. You will see your item in the cart and a text box under it so that you can type in your specifications eg. Colour, size etc. (If you are using another wholesaler there should be a way to contact the wholesaler
4. There will be a new page where you can enter all the delivery info. Submit the eBay buyer’s info. Enter a random phone number, all 000s they won’t check this. Choose EMS as shipping!
