Question

Which items should I drop ship on Ebay?

I want to sell random items from websites like AliExpress to Ebay. I have already sold some pocket knives but they are not quick sell items. I'm wondering which type of items will sell fast. Also, what are some good website where I can find items for cheap (whole sale price)? I already know about AliExpress and Amazon.

Quick sellers would be laptop and tablet skins, sleeves, keyboard skins, matching mice, matching ear buds, etc. I just purchased 3 laptop keyboard skins a couple of days ago (and yes.. they're being shipped from China..and will take approximately 15 days).

I wouldn't have ordinarily opted to buy an item (knowing it was going to be a much longer shipping time), that could be located locally. But the seller was really nice, responded immediately to my question, followed-up (answering about whether the skin would fit my particular laptop within 5 minutes), offered FREE shipping and I went for it. Plus, they offered "sale" prices and had interesting similar items listed on their eBay store. I'll buy from them again, too.

It's really going to depend on finding inexpensive items that everyone could use, offering FREE shipping, being really professional and following-up with potential buyers, etc.

It's going to be easier if you purchase items that aren't prone to breaking or being damaged during shipment, though. Electronics don't do well when drop-shipped from China. But accessories for electronics can survive the shipping process and everyone wants to buy a tablet/smartphone/laptop sleeve or wrap-around-skin, etc.


This is what I just bought:

Selling combinations of items that all match like this:
www.aliexpress.com/item/purple-colo...
would work really well on eBay.

Offering options for laptop/tablet sleeves (neoprene type) would be easy to sell and everyone would likely need. If the price is right, people will buy:
www.aliexpress.com/item/Hotest-10-L...

But make sure you don't sell only accessories for Macintosh because so many people have laptop and tablet PC's and want cool stuff. Limiting yourself to accessories ONLY for Mac means losing-out.
