Hay Everyone!

Yesterday (8/27/12) I just made my first Amazon sale. It was a brand new iHome iP97 clock radio for $55.00 USD.

What a different experience from selling on eBay. Simple.

As I am still mostly unfamiliar with Amazon I have a question for someone in the know.

How does Amazon feel about sellers drop shipping?

Thanks in advance.

Congrats on your first sale, Dale!

From what I have read, generally speaking dropshipping is not allowed on Amazon although somewhat a gray area. Amazon clearly states you should not have items listed if you do not have it in stock.

But many seasoned sellers don't strictly follow this and still sell on Amazon via dropshipping. Just make sure that your dropshipper is highly reliable and can ship items on time all the time! And may be just may be you won't get in trouble :)

All the best!
