HI,

I am hoping someone can help me with this issue.

I am looking for websites (Australian based preferred) that offer a direct upload of there products to sell on your personal ebay.

I do not have any inventory and wondered if there are any that websites offer the facility to upload a product direct from their website and list on ebay, of course they would ship the product to the customer. (dropshipper)

by direct upload i mean, select the product > connect to ebay via there website (they have the product already set out in listing format > agree to pay the seller fees > then the item in automatically uploaded to ebay. **you dont have to create the listing yourself**

I have come across it once before but cannot seem to find it again.

Is this a good method for selling on ebay?

Thankyou in advance for your help.

Hi Jenna,

Sorry but I can't think of any dropshippers that offers this type of service at the moment...

The idea of listing products straight from the drop shipper’s site to eBay sounds appealing, we do not recommend it. The reason being that you have absolutely no way of distinguishing yourself from the hundreds of other sellers using the same tool to sell the same products!

If your titles are the same, your pictures are the same, your description is the same, the shipping and service is the same – what is your competitive advantage? Where is your unique selling point?

You might get a couple of sales if you are lucky, but it’s not a workable model for building an ongoing profitable venture.

That’s just our 2 cents!

Thanks Richelle.

I found the site again. Check out shopster.com and let me know what you think. Its free to create an account and then when you browse products, certain products under the tab ebay can be directly uploaded to ebay. It also has the facility to upload the product to your personal website.

Cheers,

Jenna

shopster is a rip. You join for free, but then, if you sell anything, you have to pay their fee, which I think is $40, to place an order.

Hi Jenna,

Yes, you can join for free but with very limited access and features plus a 5% transaction fee for whatever you sell. So I don't think its really free :(

To learn more about their packages, please visit this link:

Also, there are mixed reviews about them (mostly negative). For your reference, here a link to a few of them:
