Drop shipping

Drop shipping, also known as product sourcing, is a way of selling items on eBay without ever handling the items yourself.

Drop shipping is typically used by sellers who buy stock in bulk from their supplier. After the seller receives an eBay order, they work with the supplier to have the item sent directly to the buyer.

If you use drop shipping, you're still responsible for the safe delivery of the item within the timeframe you stated in your listing, and the buyer's overall satisfaction with their purchase.

Tip
You aren't obliged to state in your listings that an item is coming directly from the supplier.
