No sure if anyone actually has an new place to sell, well at least not one that is proving more effective than ebay at the moment.
It all comes back to the type of products people are selling. the price, the marketing and so on. No doubt in my mind that traffic may well be down a little, but the buyers are still there, their just being more careful how they spend their money.
I can only talk about ebay Australia, but one of my closest friends can't keep up with sales at the moment, he is getting smashed, and making great margin. Of course he is not drop shipping, he's simply selling second hand that he is getting from garage sales and auction houses.
He has always done second hand, but they used to stick to cloths mostly, and we're never too serious about it. His wife lost her job six months ago and they were forced to look at other income streams, so advanced their range of second hand items, and have not looked back since.
Just talking to him last night, tells me that they are struggling to keep the shop stocked. As soon as they are listing, they are getting offers to sell without the auction running its course.
To me that just shows that you can sell in a bad economy, you just have to be smarter and work harder, but as with most things, Effort=Reward!
