I'm in the same boat and am looking to making money with eBay. I am starting from nothing, so am interested in drop shipping my products.
Research here and other forums. Research eBay to see what is selling. Look around you. You are pretty close US style to the orient.
There are sellers from Asia in CA.
Search a little online.
Test out your dropshippers.
Then start listing slowly. If you run across a niche or a product line that is selling lights out try to jump on quick knowing it wont last.
Continue to look for a product/s line you can sell steady either through DS or DP(direct purchase)
I have done hours of research and have come up with some good suppliers but I wont reveal them as they have taken me time and energy.
Remember, you wont get peoples direct contacts as they are kept under the vest.
Check with local businesses, this is how I came up with a steady supply of stuff to sell.
There are inline places to get product but you have to look for them and continually research eBay to see if those items will net a product.
You can find some of them here.
Find a niche. Find an area of interest or expertise.
