I was wondering as to the legality of something i was thinking.

If a company provides the option to bill to one adress and ship to another would it be legal to post up one of their products on ebay and then once payment from ebay is recieved to order the product with your billing address but have it shipped to your buyers address?

Yes, this is called dropshipping. You'll need to list the shipping location on eBay, not your location.

I was just looking through the forum and came across this thread and it sparked some interest. I am curious to know how this eBay loop hole works and I was hoping you could share this knowledge with the rest of the SaleHoo members :D . Can you do this with any wholesale company and if not how can I tell if my wholesaler can do this?
