WHAT IS DROP SHIPPING?*
 
Drop shipping allows you to sell products with virtually no-risk and no-investment as you purchase products only after you have already sold them to a third party.  It is a simple 1-2-3 process that works like this.

1) Your customer orders a product from you and pays.
2) You then order the product from your supplier using your customer's money.
3) The supplier then ships the product directly to your customer under your name.
4) The remaining money from the transaction is your profit.

Your profit is the price you sell the item for on eBay minus your cost for the item and your eBay fees.

*This is simply to inform you what drop shipping is and how it works.  I strongly suggest eBay sellers stay away from drop shipping.  It is not well suited to the eBay marketplace.
