When an item sells on eBay you need to make sure that you quickly log into Amazon to place the order to have the item shipped out to the buyer.
This is boring and laborious. So, instead of performing this task manually why not employ software to do it for you. AutoDS comes with a built in Auto ordering feature which places the order for you on your Amazon account and supplies a courier tracking code too.
AutoDS do charge an additional fee for the auto ordering feature but it is worth the expense.
When you want to get lots of Amazon product ids in one go you can purchase a copy of zonehunter to grab an entire category from Amazon which you can then filter based on price, ratings, feedback left and if it is shipped via Amazon Prime. This piece of software will save you hours of copy and pasting.
Outsourcing your tasks
As you get more experienced and more sales are coming in via your eBay shop you may start finding it hard going doing all the little things. At this point I would suggest going to a website called upwork and hire a virtual assistant. Also referred to as VA’s they can hired for around $3 per hour and will perform all of the boring tasks leaving you to focus on growing your business.
Pros: Very easy to set up and using the right tools like Autods or Hustlegotreal you can list products very quickly
Cons: Can be a burden to maintain top notch customer service for returns, not delivered or other issues. Here you would hire a virtual assistant who will do all of the admin work for you. (Go to upwork) to find a VA
Amazon is not the only source of products, you will find that it is possible to dropship from Smyths toys, Argos, John Lewis and so many more and you do not need to use eBay. You could set up your own website to sell from, thus saving you eBay fees.
This is a very high level overview of dropshipping. There is so much more that I could write about it but all the pieces you need to start your dropshipping empire are here.
