I would like to sell on the US Ebay site and I'm based in the UK. My question is: When I list an item on the US Ebay site, would my listing show that I'm actually based in the UK? If so, do you think it might put the buyer off from buying my product?

I'm fairly new to dropshipping so my plan is to focus on the US since there's more choice to source a dropshipper and the buyer market is much greater than the UK.

Any advice more than welcome, thanks.

Hi Darren and welcome to the forum

No matter what eBay site you list on, your location must reflect where the item is being sent from. So it doesn't matter where you are personally, it's where the item is. So if the item was being sent from the US, then the location would be the US, from China, then China and so on.
