well, i've noticed that some you need a tax ID or buisness ID etc? i don't have a buisness ID because i was going to sell items on ebay as a part time job. I also have no idea what to look at to dropship because the info here is overwhelming!!

A tax/business ID is a legal requirement to conduct business. I recommend you read, Link hidden: Login to view It offers detailed information on why you should get a tax id.

As for your second question: What to sell. This is a very common question of those who want to get into online selling but has no prior business experience. My advice; always start with what you know or what you love, i.e if you love shoes, selling shoes online is a breeze because you already understand what your product is. This part is important because customers can ask you all sorts of questions and they expect you to know the answer all the time. Customers feel more confident purchasing from a seller who knows their product inside out.

Auction Inspector does not search for suppliers but its scores through eBay's 'Want It Now' section. It's a software designed to help you check the potential of the product you are interested in selling.

It turned up as 'No Results Found' probably because there are no current listings on 'Want It Now' for Elizabeth Montgomery.

If you want to search for suppliers, you can by using our Search tab on the upper right hand corner.

Hope this helps. :)
