Glad to have you here! :)
eBay is the most competitive marketplace in the world, especially for designer products which are often driven down to ridiculously low profits there. Unfortunately this means that you canâ€™t expect to make a profit drop shipping these items on eBay. Of all supply methods, drop shipping gives you the smallest margins, as you are essentially buying products individually â€“ meaning you donâ€™t benefit from volume discounts. Drop shipping has other advantages like letting you test a market without too much risk, and expand your product range without having to invest heavily in stock â€“ but a good wholesale price is not the main benefit of drop shipping.
Quite frankly, drop shipping doesnâ€™t work that well on eBay unless you find a niche where competition is small.
Another thing to bear in mind is that there are some sellers offering counterfeit watches from China on eBay as well (despite eBay cracking down on this), so this also lowers the price for these watches overall.
So now you understand why drop shipping Emporio Armani watches on eBay isnâ€™t a good business move, I have two recommendations for you:
1. Use the Research Lab to find a different product to sell on eBay â€“ preferably non-designer. Or we can suggest some good products to try selling if you get stuck!
2. You can check out other selling platforms like Bonanzle or eBid, where the competition is less intense, potentially allowing you drop ship watches for a profit.
Selling profitably on eBay isnâ€™t something you can rush into â€“ it does require quite a bit of research, which is why we are here to help! :)
P.S. Don't forget to upload a profile picture next time.
Have a nice day!
