If you have found a product and are choosing to use dropshipping as your method, how do you figure out the price to charge to make sure all expenses are covered and you still get a profit? Also, when you are actually listing the item on ebay to sell, what picture are you supposed to use for the item's description? I thought ebay had rules about using pictures and such from the manufacturer's website. Or am I mistaking? Thanks in advance for the help.


One more thing....how do taxes figure into the whole pricing equation? Do we figure taxes and add it in or how does that work?

Well you have to figure in what your final value fees and your listing fees will be once you create the listing. Make sure you use pictures that are not directly the manufacturers. Search google pics for a picture that is not direct from the manufacturer. And you can figure in your taxes within ebay. And you can set your taxes for your state in your ebay settings.

I probably shouldn't be doing this but I have always used manufctr pix for my listings. Just don't let them link to the site. Copy them to your desktop first.
