eBay's 2018 Seller Updates require product locations of City, State and/or Zip Codes in listings. To date, the go-around was using Multiple Locations, USA. as many are sourced from various warehouses locations and is still perfectly legal in eBay's Policy.
However, in eBay's effort to have sellers match locations with a shopper's location, eBay is favoring visibility to listings with zip codes.
As more and more online Retail Stores, such as Walmart; OverStock; WayFair and recently Home Depot are cancelling orders discouraging dropshippers from ordering, its getting harder and harder to continue dropshipping from them......AND eBay is beginning to restrain visibility of listings sourced from Amazon, since they are striving to provide lower pricing than their competitors.
Many eBay DropShip Sellers have resorted to using Chinese Suppliers, being forced to heavily compete at lowest pricing and ferociously list as many product as possible in one day, just to earn a sub-standard decent profit per sale. Although, strange enough....eBay seems to overlook the zip code visibility in search results when a listing has a low competitive price.
This may be a solution for some eBay DropShip Sellers, who know how to select Chinese Supplier Products, but their is a better solution to comply with zip code for higher listing visibility using USA DropShip Suppliers with warehouses having one zip code.
Many USA DropShip Suppliers offer lower pricing on higher quality products, fast shipping times, liberal return policies and some provide immediate email notifications on changes to out-of-stock or pricing, too!
Do your research to learn the quality of products; shipping terms and return policies, as you would do with any new supplier..... ...and disregard, if some that require a fee.
You can do a simple Google Search to find some USA DropShip Suppliers, but beware there a many with websites that are simple middleman charging a fee or take a cut in-between their price as distributors.
You can expect to spend hours sifting through each website or find a list Premium Top-Tier USA DropShip Suppliers to start qualifying to fit your business model.
Whether you are new or a long time well-established eBay DropShip Seller, eBay will eventually tag your account and punish with no or little visibility on your listings, as you can see from a recent FaceBook Post. >>>>>>>>
I highly recommend to get started THIS WEEK to succeed on eBay by beginning today in researching through the Premium TOP-TIER USA DropShip Suppliers List including a Master List Worksheet to stay organized and work with ease.
