The current strategy on eBay is to start slow and work on buyer satisfaction. Your initial goal should be to reach 100 feedback of good solid FB.
Build a good solid Paypal account with as little refunds as possible. You may run into some but keep it as low as possible.
Realize that Paypal will hold much of your money on up to 100 FB. Expect this and work within their policies.
Using dropshippers makes this more difficult but doable. You may need some extra funds to cover the purchase of dropship items, because when Paypal holds your money, you have nothing to pay for the items but new funds.
When building a Paypal account, make it a business account and think through each step. How much business will you or expect to do in a month? Make sure to leave yourself enough room when Paypal asks this question or you open yourself up to holds.
FULLY! verify your Paypal account before opening an eBay account. If you didn't, do it as soon as possible.
