I'm trying to sell a Digital Camera on ebay. Before I can put it up for auction, I have to know how much the shipping cost is to the seller.

How do I that when I haven't got any bids to know where the potential buyer
is?

On your sell your item form (when listing your acution) select 3 types of shipping methods (such as 'priorty,media mail, parcel post, ups, global priorty'). Once you have entered your zipcode on that same form,it will automatically state what the shipping cost will be . If you are just using a flatrate shipping cost, then you will have to weigh the item and then look up what the cost will be according to how much it weighs,,(using the shipping calculator) You can find a quick link for the shipping calculator on the 'sitemap' page. A link to the sitemap will be listed at the top of any ebay page....

You might want to read through some of the selling tutorials that they have available on ebay, they will kind of walk you through the method, including how to figure shipping costs...

what if I want the item to go directly from the wholesaler to the buyer, meaning I don't have physical access to it?

Ahhh, You are dropshipping....Well if that is the case the dropshipper is going to charge you a price to ship that item, so you need to find out what method of shipping the dropshipper is using and charging you so you can indicate that cost in the auction instructions 'shipping & handling'. That section is located down at the bottom of the auction listing...You might want to consider a flat rate shipping cost to list on the auction, and make sure its enough to cover the cost of what the dropshipper,(wholesaler) is going to charge you to ship that item...Because it going to be charged to you somewhere,,wether stated or hidden in the cost of the item....
