The idea of drop shipping is a very appealing way to get started in eBay. However, figuring shipping costs if the drop shipper is no where near my location shown has me baffled since a buyer will be calculating shipping costs from where they are located in relation to where I, as the eBay seller am located and not the drop shipping company.
For example, let's say I'm in L.A. and and my buyer is also in L.A., but the product will be drop shipped from Florida. When the buyer goes to eBay to calculate shipping costs, it will automatically calculate L.A. to L.A. not Florida. So, the shipping cost will be much higher than what was calculated.
What am I missing? Please advise.
