ya it was a pain for me just to cover shipping expenses, but i can't imagine dropshipping that could be tough for awhile. i guess you do need money to start out dropshipping.
On a new account I just started with eBay, all of my first 5 sales have been held. They must be having an awful time still with scammers. Why else would they hold that many sales. And were not talking about high priced stuff. Highest priced item was 18$.
Find stuff around that you can sell. I think once you get past 5 sales with some FB they lighten up some, as 5 sales is what you need to do BIN and store sales.
