    May be 4 years ago I meet with a ebay buyer. He will sell laptop computer at ebay but he did not have any own or personal laptop making factory. He ask action for it and when need to deliver then he buy one and deliver to client. Is it not interesting. I mean if you have to do middleman work then you could sell something at ebay without having any product by yourself.

    £900/day is a huge business which would take money to set up.

    This book - http://thegreatimconspiracy.com/ has 'no outlay' ways in which to make money on eBay by outsourcing.

    'Ghost Dropshipping'

    You can do that with both physical products (such as tennis balls) or information products (such as How to lose weight in 60 days). You can sell either of those 2 types of products on eBay.

    You could dropship, but you need money and a good supplier.

    On eBay along with selling items you can also earn from from affiliate program. With affiliate program you can send traffic to other seller's listings and earn commission on every purchase and also on each click that is directed to an eBay site.

    Its really easy to earn if you have just a couple of bucks go to a store and find a clearance item, Say 60% off then flip it on ebay with a 30% markup of the original price Giving the buyer a 30% discount. Be sure to research the item to see if it is just a local price decrease or a all across the board decrease. The key advantage to this is that you can return the merchandise to the store if you feel it will not sell. To get to 900 pounds i am in the us so i use dollars its all up to you but take it slow or you could loose your accounts for high risk plus your caped anyway.
    If you are a newcomer I would stay away from dropshipers untill you have some one with well known status point you in the correct direction. The risk is huge. This is only my advice Listen to many people and take from each get you a strategy and earn.

    I would recommend drop shipping or informational products. Drop shipping may have a higher upfront cost, but you basically sell wholesaler items and they ship it for you. Information products (ebooks, software, etc), you can sell other people products with resell rights or create your own. Ebay no longer allows digital delivery of products, so you do still have to ship physical products.

    This is a very helpful post :) Also dont rush into choosing a wholesale supplier/dropshipper take your time and do some research on them before commencing any transactions, there are a lot of unreliable and cheats out there!!

    NOOOOOOOOOOO dude this is totally bad advice of the drop ship. Leave drop shipping alone till you are established. for any one who successfully uses drop shipping knows this.
    Reason number 1 drop shipping is bad, you better have the funds to cover the purchase because pay pal wont for your first 90 days.
    2: you have no say as you don't see when or how the product was shipped and in what condition
    3 most drop shippers offer no returns and if they do then there is likely a lot of red tape to go through
    making getting a refund difficult.
    4 the markup is already above retail so your marketing strategies will have to be expert.
    and to shorten it up and here is the big one for everyone in here talking out there bung hole about drop shipping
    PAYPAL AND EBAY DO NOT GIVE SELLER PROTECTION WHEN YOU USE DROP SHIPPING people read a tos once in a while

    Also forgot to mention you can sell what is around your house to generate the start up money you need (you should only need £50-£100)

    ebay has an i-soldit program here in the United States. I don't know if it is an international franchise but basically you act as the middleman to sell other people's things. Initial investment is quite hefty I believe.

    I would advise starting small with something to sell. Learn the ropes and then scale from there. Finding suppliers is not that hard if you look.
