Every employee has been dreaming of being the one on the opposite side. And everyone always thought of just getting enough money for business capital to startup even just a small business – and that’s how I think too.
I have been working for 11 years now and almost 3 years as an Online Freelancer, I have no idea of how things work in this kind of industry — Home-based Jobs. Since I am not a newbie in business or online business, I already thought of dropshipping. I knew it while scrolling on Social Media and I fell in love with it. I joined a lot of groups and read articles about it and every time I saw success stories from known people of dropshipping my heart beats fast. Why? Because of dreams and excitement, dreams for my family and hoping to help others on the side.
I guess God heard my heart beating and He gave me a gift. I was hired as an eBay Account Worker to a Dropshipping Company. They are handling lots of eBay accounts for sellers from all over the world. And it became my stepping stone to the business side of being a freelancer. To make the story short, I learned almost everything from that company about eBay.
Let me give you a step by step procedure on how to start your eBay Dropshipping Business but before that let me give you the definition of Dropshipping.
Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method where a store doesn’t keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when a store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. As a result, the merchant never sees or handles the product.
In short, the seller from the website you got your items will be the one sending it to your buyer. Great right?
First, you need to sign up to eBay Philippines. They need documents like Identification Cards and Statement of Account for Verification.
Some sellers use eBay Monitoring Programs like DSM Tool, Yaballe, AutoDS and many more. They used monitoring programs because it will be easier to list and manage a store.
Once your account has been verified and your ready to list some items. Please make sure to read the terms and conditions of eBay, also their rules and regulations. This will prevent your account from being restricted or suspended.
Next thing you need to do is choose a website you’re using to dropship items. You can use Amazon, Walmart, Alibaba, AliExpress and many more. If you want to sell in the US, you might want to consider getting your items from Amazon US or any website that can deliver to the US as fast as 2-3days or better if they have next day delivery.
For pricing, you can use this website:
After that, you can now look for the items you want to sell in the websites you want your items to be dropshipped. Some sellers use different styles and applications in doing market research or product research. I use Zik Analytics for product research. Let me go ahead and give you the meaning of product research using my own words.
Product research is simply searching for the most sellable item in a particular country or place at a certain time.
The last but not the least is making sure you have the right settings for your store. Read carefully and I know you will not be lost.
And Viola, welcome to eBay Seller, enjoy selling!
