Dropshipping on best eBay Pros and Cons
Here are the pros and cons of eBay’s downfall rather than creating an e-commerce store:
It’s easy- Dropping on eBay is as easy as creating an account and setting up your first listing. No need to worry about the hassle and expense of setting up your own online store or e-commerce blog.
Less need for marketing- Putting your eBay listings in front of millions of online buyers saves you time and money on marketing, SEO, and paid traffic.
More traffic for less effort- Larger audiences ensure you make sales easier and get the best prices for your products.
Listing fees- eBay charges a small fee for listing (the first 50 listings are free) as well as up to 10 percent of your total selling price (known as the “final value fee”). With the already slim profit margins through Drop Shipping, these fees can add up quickly. Remember that the secret to making money with Dropship is volume.
Low customization- Selling products on eBay is a great way to start an online business, but fewer customization options for your store and listings make it more difficult to separate yourself from your competitors.
Requires constant monitoring- If you want to maintain the volume you need to make money through eBay sales you need to stay at the top of your listings. There are online tools that can help you streamline the re-listing process.
Lastly, you have to decide where to put most of your time and effort when selling wholesale products online, but for many marketers, dropping on eBay is a simple and effective way of making money.
