Hello Everyone,

I am new to SaleHoo and dropshipping. I figured it would be best to only start out selling a few things on eBay to get used to the system so that's what I did. But it seems like eBay is a tough place to sell due to the large amount of sellers they already have, not to mention you still get charged a fee even if the item you have for sale doesn't sell. And everything I have there has to go through the auction process because I don't have what it takes to get a 'buy it now' button right now. So, I was wandering if there are any good websites to try and sell. If anyone could help me with this question it would be greatly appreciated. And any other input would be appreciated also. Thank you.

If your dropshipping and dont want to sell on Ebay I would suggest you create your own website. All top ebay sellers eventually create their own websites and leave ebay as the money is much better when not paying fees to sell your items.

If you accept PayPal for payment, your feedback rating only needs to be 5. If you don't accept Paypal as a payment method then you need a feedback rating of 10, so just find five or ten 99 cent items to buy to get the feedback you need so you can sell fixed price auctions.

I think that's still the way it works; can't be sure with all the changes being made over there.

For free stores try Link hidden: Login to view, Link hidden: Login to view or Link hidden: Login to view. They're free, try all three.

Diversification is the key nowadays.
