Ok so im in Australia but i want to trade on the US Ebay market.
How do i find someone that so say i list a heap of dvds on ebay from what my drop shipper is offering and then once the customer has brought those dvds does that drop shipper send directly to the customer?

I cant really see how to do that on this site.

This is prob really dumb question and im sorry. If somone can help ill be very grateful.

Hi Marc, that's exactly what a Drop Shipper does. You list their items and then when a sale is made, they ship directly to the customer, not to you.

All you need to do is search the directory for a Drop Shippers who deal in the market you are interested in, of course in this case you would be looking at US based ones to keep your charges down and provide a speedy shipping service.

Of course you will still need to do plenty of market research, both on your supplier options and on your eBay comp to ensure you have a viable market to aim at up front.
