Hi, My name is Mat and i'm from Australia. Before I ask people for some much needed help I'll explain what I have done so far, as i'm not a beginner as such.

I started my ebay account around 5 years ago just to buy things I needed on ebay, since then I have also sold a range of things around my house and other things for my family. I then started inquiring about cheap parts for my Hyosung motorbike. Once I found the right website they had a section about dropshipping, so there started my first ebay store, I now have around 30 products in my store from that comany and around 20 or so from Chinavasion which I also found through a search engine. Thats where i'm up to right now.

Now for the help I joined this website a few days ago and have been on here researching for around 8 hours in total, reading all forums with other people having trouble and what not. I have also searched endlessly through the directory with no avail.

I'm after a couple of reliable dropshipping companies for RC hobbies, PC software and DVD sales. I can't seem to find anything that will either ship to Australia or not require a tax ID. Is there a way I can get past the tax ID or even get one?

Also I'm looking at really extending my ebay shop to a few hundred products if can be. Whats the best way to do this?

Thanks for reading this far and for any information received.

Thanks again for listening :)

Hi Mat,

There is no way around a TAX id, anyone requiring that is a genuine wholesaler and will need it to establish an account for you. Since you're in Australia, an ABN will do the job for you.

An ABN is freely available by contacting the Australian Tax Office.

In regards to sourcing the products you are looking for, I'm sure one of the support staff will start searching for some supply leads for you as soon as they read your post, but you can send a request direct to to get the ball rolling.

Two of the companies mentioned in the list are based in Australia and of course offers dropshipping.
