Yeah, and it is basically eBay's fault anyhow. Since eBay has NEVER been a good place for drop-shipping they just didn't tell you this.
The problem was eBay has been overly deceitful in the purposes behind their 'services', and not admitted that most retailers also dump all their wholesale goods on eBay so its more of an open liquidate site.
Liquidations are perfect for eBay. But NOT all the false hype about dropshipping on eBay. For *CERTAIN* products, in tenure, it would always be true inter-alia perfume could be constantly a good drop ship on eBay.
But only those categories & you have to bend over backwards.
I didn't realize this in beginning when I was at, basically eBay and craigslist. I thought Jimmy might be pulling my chain re: difficulty of getting good rates on eBay.
Was when I got off it and did alot more instead on Amazon and elsewhere that I saw the real reality. eBay *IS* that way, and they did some false promotion because they aren't about fixed products.
They are absolutely auctions, biggest ones next to uBid. And they don't want it to be something else.
And I think it's stretching it to say that I OFFER isn't anything but more or less the polar opposite to eBay. I know alot of people that moved there etc.
Yet that marketplace has been around a long time and since its basically an open flea market, its much more accurate to say that I offer is a competitor to craigslist in a huge way *NOT* eBay's auctions. Everything at I Offer sells at a fixed price, as I got going with it more that's what I saw & its what sells the most and the quickest. They're just like Amazon and these others which fit a specific need and that's it.
But they are not the same selling model.
