Product sourcing (sometimes called drop shipping) is one way to sell items on eBay. Sellers using a product sourcing service never handle the itemâ€”instead it is sent directly from a warehouse to the buyer. The seller collects money from the buyer and pays the product sourcer for the item. This benefits both the buyer and seller. By purchasing in bulk from a product sourcer, the seller gets a discount and can pass those savings to the buyer.
Is product sourcing allowed?
Selling using a product sourcing service is allowed on eBay as long as the seller can guarantee that the item will be delivered to the buyer within 30 days of the end of the listing. Sellers who choose to sell using this method are responsible for the item and their buyer's satisfaction just like any other eBay seller. If there is a problem, it's the seller's responsibility to work it out with the buyer.
An EAN-13 barcode (originally "European Article Number", but now renamed â€International Article Numberâ€ even though the abbreviation has been retained) is a 13 digit (12 + check digit) barcoding standard which is a superset of the original 12-digit Universal Product Code (UPC) system developed in the United States. The EAN-13 barcodes are used worldwide for marking products often sold at retail point of sale.
You mentioned that you are dropshipping from Asia and also mentioned that you are selling authentic Zenithink tablet PC's - I'm not sure if they go together. We have always cautioned everybody about buying branded electronics from Asia particularly in China. It's a must NOT to buy anything branded.
