Hey there! The point of this eBook is to skip all the fluff, and go straight to the meat, so Ill keep this section brief. I created this eBook primarily because I wanted to be able to genuinely help people who have always wanted to learn how to REALLY dropship (and make good money) on Ebay. I also want to build a following behind my personal brand and expertise, and I wanted to start by giving back to the community that made it all possible for me!

A Brief on Who I Am
An Ebay PowerSeller for over 5 years Made my first $100,000 on Ebay while still in college (2008) Was the top Ebay seller for my specific dropshipping product Recently had one of my online businesses valued at a $200,000

I know a lot about the internet, especially about Ebay. And of all the internet projects Ive worked on over the years, Ive loved Ebay the most. I know it inside-and-out. So rest assured. You are in good hands!

This is Your Opportunity to Change Your Life


No, Im not joking! I started my living online solely thanks to Ebay and I KNOW you can too. You just have to be dedicated, know that you are truly passionate about it, and WORK to make it.

For me this isnt fluff talk. For me this is my sincere way of reaching out to you and telling you that it really is possible. Forget all the scams, and you can, you might, you have a chance. Take these dead-simple tactics Ive compiled over 5+ years of real Ebay mastership, and tell yourself you WANT it and youll GET IT.

Keep the mentality of staying sharp with my tactics, and I promise youll make hundreds within your first week of dropshipping.

Dropshipping on Ebay
Dropshipping has always been one of the unsung heroes of Ebay. Once you understand exactly how it works, youll realize its omnipresent in one way or another. Let me give you a really simple-yet-completely-overlooked example: Dropshipping from a supplier can (and often does) have the ability to convert to a wholesale partnership at a maximum discount, but it almost never happens the other way around. And despite what naysayers are preaching, dropshipping is still very alive, and will never die, so long as you know how to source deals!

The Two Traps


There are two really dangerous traps that people fall for when they think of dropshipping on Ebay: 1- Dropshipping popular products 2- Wholesaling popular products The first thing you need to do is forget about anything that has any buzz around it. No videogame consoles, no iPads, no As-Seen-On-TV, etc. Just trust me.

Long-story-short: Roughly 60% of the sellers of these products are businesses that purchase thousands (to tens of thousands) of inventory weekly. Another 30% are individuals just selling a single item, and 10% are people who have been scammed into joining dropshipping directories and make negative profit on their sales. Now you may be thinking: Great, so what am I supposed to sell now!? The answer is: ANYTHING.

Finding a Niche
Im being totally sincere when I say that finding a niche is actually ridiculously easyespecially on Ebay. The main reason is because virtually everyone going to Ebay is going there ready to purchase, which is very different from someone going to Google or Amazon simply to read a review. In essence: Everything sells on Ebay.

Fun Fact: Ebay made $11.7 BILLION dollars in 2011 (Source: Venturebeat)

That being said, there are two RIDICULOUSLY simply methods to use when coming up with a niche, and they both require you to let go of your prejudices and get downright stupid:

Strategy 1: Look at anything and everything around you


Sad enough to say, even the grass you stand on could have been a purchased commodity. Every pen you write with, toilet paper you use, lamp you turn on, even the cotton swabs in your bathroom; everything is fair game. One of the most famous billionaires in China, began her empire by literally collecting and reselling PAPER. I cant make this up!

Some proof that everything around you can be sold: (via Inc Magazine)

Open up a document, spreadsheet, or just get a piece of paper handy, and just jot down anything, no matter how ridiculous.

Fun Fact: Ebay supplies are now one of the most profitable niches on Ebay.

Strategy 2: Think about specific hobbies/things you or others love


Again, super-simple, but this is my favorite method, because it will help you quickly find the BEST SELLING items on Ebay. Its a win-win: People will keep buying what they love, and youll enjoy selling what you have a passion for! I actually created a quick cheat-sheet for this method as part of my $100K Dropshipping video course, but Im happy to share it here as well

You can access here: MoneyBay://Quick-Niche-Spreadsheet

In essence, you want to jot down a big list of: (1) Hobbies or things you love, (2) trends that are popular or in high demand, and (3) things that seem inconceivably silly to ever have an interest in.

Afterwards, create a niche sub-category for each item. So for instance, one of my examples above is Harry Potter Costumes. This is an ACTUAL niche, and I didnt even have to really think about it. There really are entire businesses built around specific types of Halloween/special event costumes.

The main point is to K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid)! You really dont need any other strategies than these. Anything else would simply be overthinking it. A common mistake is immediately thinking about what might make the most money, so we end up defaulting back to thinking about something tough to actually compete in like Toyota Parts. K.I.S.S.!!

Gaging Demand & Refining the Niche


Validation on Ebay is all about using Ebay Search properly. Validating that there is an actual market for your product on Ebay is very easy; If you have something to sell on Ebay, there is a market for it. The main idea is to gage the demand for the product. For instance, I did a relevant Ebay search for the harry potter costume niche and returned this result:

Clearly the demand is high, but it may be a little bit crowded, so from here, you simply narrow down into an even DEEPER niche.

Again, K.I.S.S. Dont waste your time trying to think of what could be a smaller nicheits right there in front of you! If you look at the picture above, I pointed out the costume and reenactment category of the sidebar. Youll see that there are less results for this section, but it is more relevant to our target niche.

From here you can clearly see that one of the most popular sellers is Harry Potter Robes. At this point, it is safe to say weve found an exact niche wed like to dropship. Congratulations!

The Quickest Way to Find Suppliers


Im going to share with you one of the biggest secrets of successful Ebay dropshippers: There is no magic bullet for landing suppliers. Getting a supplier is all about selling yourself to EVERYONE! That simple little secret is what has (and always will) keep the top dropshippers on the top, andsadlyfool many people into getting scammed by dropship membership directories which are totally oversaturated, and dont turn a profit for anyone but the directories themselves. IM BEGGING YOU, DONT EVER JOIN A DROPSHIPPING DIRECTORY, OR PROGRAM.

My advice: Go back to the basics. Understand that dropshipping directories, sourcers, etc, are all partnered with 1 or 2 major carriers of a specific product in only a handful of catagories. Which means prices are uncompetitive/inflexible, not to mention TENS OF THOUSANDS of suppliers are being ignored.

Strategy 1: Go for every local small business


Here is one ridiculously simple trick: Think about what local store would carry the EXACT product you are looking for. The keyword here is LOCAL. Think about it: Small businesses are always looking to expand their business, but dont have the resources Also, Id say about 25% of dropshipping programs created every year are through small businesses that decide to open one. Youd also be surprised how many small businesses have no idea how to use Ebay (but they sure know how to take a payment and ship a package)!

Fun Fact: A very popular niche that does REALLY well on Ebay, and could save a lot of small businesses from dying is antiques.

Ultimately its all about finding the businesses and negotiating with them that you are the right companion. What do you bring to the table for THEM? An online presence A brand new/additional sales funnel Majority of profits without having to sell themselves 24-7 sales A way to combat the big guys (Walmart, etc)

Strategy 2: Strike a deal with an Amazon seller


After observing Ebay and Amazon over the last half decade, Ive realized thatbelieve it or notthere is not a lot of cross-pollination between the

two. Meaning when people sell on one of them, 99% of the time, theyll never sell on the other. But again this is a big missed opportunity for people. The main reason sellers dont usually cross pollinate is: Doing well on just ONE of these sites takes a LOT of time and effort. And at the end of the day these sellers are small businesses too! Its to your mutual benefit that you can help them expand onto Ebay by doing the sales for them, and taking profit off the top. I did a sample search just to show you the potential:

The key point with Amazon sellers is to let them know you are not interested at all in selling on Amazon, and you are willing to sign what is called a non-compete clause in your contract, stating that you will not sell on Amazon for the duration of your partnership!

How the Partnership Works


The concept of partnering with a supplier to dropship is simple. Once youve gotten your supplier, you need to make sure you are either getting a percentage discount (i.e. 30%) on items, or a lump sum discount (i.e. $15 dollars). Deals are subject to re-negotiation at any time (typically after a few months of working together), at which point you will typically get an even better discount based on performance, or you can switch to wholesale, etc. Depending on how you want to expand your business, youll find that partnering with multiple suppliers who carry different items is beneificial in the long term!
