Amazon to eBay Dropshipping
Updated: Feb 3
What is Amazon to eBay Dropshipping?
Amazon to eBay dropshipping is listing products from Amazon on to eBay at a higher price than listed on Amazon. When the product sells on eBay you then drop ship the item by entering the eBay buyers details on Amazon and getting the item sent directly to the customer. This is dropshipping because you never have to hold the inventory in the first place
Why do people not go to Amazon direct?
A very common question. The simple answer is brand preference. There are many items that can be found on eBay that cannot be found on Amazon. There are many items that can be found on Amazon and cannot be found on eBay. For that reason, many people stick to the website that they use more often, the convenience of not having to shop around and looking through many websites, many people just come on to eBay and look for what they want and if it is in front of them at the right price, then they just purchase the product
How do I find products that will sell?
It is pretty simple because all you have to do is go on to Amazon and search for Amazon best sellers.
The above links will take you to the most recent best selling products on Amazon. You can then narrow down your searches by selecting a sub category on the left hand side of the page.
Most beginners look in the Toys & Games section as it is the easiest category to work with, Once you become more experienced, you will be able to look into more untapped niches and do some unique product research
As you can see from the image above, I can see a product that is selling for $13.99 on Amazon. I will not highlight most of the title and search for it on eBay as many drop shippers on eBay just copy and paste titles from Amazon to eBay. I will specifically look for sellers who are selling this product, using the same images and selling it for more than $13.99 because that will tell me, that they have more than likely copied the information over and put their markup on there
Now if you look at the image above, you can see that their are a number of sellers who are using the same image as Amazon and selling the product on eBay at a higher markup.
At this stage, you can then go into the sellers account and see the sold items.
Sold items will show that there is interest in the product. Find the sold items on Amazon, get the details and then list on to your eBay store. Simple
When someone buys the item on eBay, they go over to Amazon, buy the item on Amazon and enter the delivery details as the buyers details from eBay.
They keep the difference.
They are able to do this effectively because they have an Amazon Prime UK or Amazon Prime US account. The first month is free on Amazon and after that you can pay a one off fee to have it for the whole year. This allows you to have very competitive shipping times on eBay because Amazon Prime has some of the fastest shipping times in the world
What if the customer find an invoice or Amazon packaging?
This is probably the most common question and it is a very valid question however this question is very insignificant because of the way eCommerce works. When you use Amazon Prime, before you check out, you can mark the item as gift, this way any invoices will be excluded.
95% of the time, people do not question why the item as come in an Amazon box or packaging as people reuse boxes all the time on eBay and many times even when sellers are not dropshipping, may use Amazon boxes.
If the customers do question it, sellers just state that they are using various distribution centres around the country and Amazon handle some of these packages
Is there a better way to find products to dropship from Amazon to eBay?
There are many product research tutorials on YouTube and I myself have made some detailed product research tutorials. If you are finding product research time consuming then you should check out our very own Ebay Hot Sellers list where we have already done the product research, found items that are successfully selling well on Ebay and being drop shipped from Amazon.
Over 150 products added every month from both Amazon UK and Amazon US
Are there any other suppliers I can use other than Amazon?
Yes, there are many others. As a matter of fact, many people are looking into suppliers like Aliexpress or Wholesale Dropshipping from China because the profit margins are much higher, you sell worldwide and are more compliant with the eBay drop shipping policy.
Although there are longer shipping times, this does not really matter because not everyone around the world has the privilege of Amazon Prime and if you can put the right product in front of the right customer at the right price, then they will buy it.
