My Personal Experience With eBay Dropshipping : “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”

…September 2013…

Purchased DS Domination…

THE GOOD!
Studied my A$$ off. Proceeded to list over 400 items…

Training received from D$ Domination was “top notch”…

All goes well… Cha Ching! Orders and $$ rolling in thru PayPal, orders being processed thru D$ Domination “Pro & Elite Member” sources…

Happy days are here…

THE BAD!
However, once in a blue moon an item would be purchased which was “out of stock”…

Meaning, “could not locate anywhere in the USA”…

(Remember, this was before D$ Domination had an automated fail-safe available to members in order to avoid this exact situation…)

Refund customer’s $, all good…

So I think…

August 20th, 2014; eBay incorporates “new” seller profile ranking system…

THE UGLY!
Too many “out of stock” sales and eBay’s new “seller defect rate” (part of the new ranking system) 16% defect rate was hit in Sept 2014… exactly one year to the date of ANNIVERSARY selling on eBay in a large volume fashion…

eBay cancels my seller account for life…

GULP…

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

…September 2014…

THE FUTURE!

All is good, I go back and revisit/study D$ Domination “Monopoly” & “Genesis”, how to sell on Amazon…

Rethink what I am offering for sale…

All is good again, sales roll in like turning on & off a spigot…

NO “out of stock” issues…

I’ve learned a great deal over this past year selling on eBay…
