    The biggest problem is twofold #1. Capital - You will need a fair amount of cash/capital to get started with this. The wholesalers have no incentive to dropship when they can sell on .co.uk themselves. Depending on the items, you could be tying up your money for a while. #2. Taxes & Shipping - If you are based in the UK, and are buying these items in the US to ship to the UK, you do incur taxes when you import them, plus the joy of paying twice for shipping - once to the UK, and then again to the customer. #3. Discount - Most shopper, myself included, want immediate gratification. As a result you will find that even accounting for shipping costs, items sold on .co.uk but being shipped from the US will sell at a discount to the identical items being shipped from the UK. YMMV

    I doubt that this will work at all. You buy cheap from eBay USA and sell then on eBay UK. I think your customers aren't that glad when they see from your feedback that you have bought your item from eBay at a way cheaper price .....
    Second is, almost all the sellers with interesting and cheap items sell INTERNATIONALLY. They have their product on ebay.com, ebay.fr, ebay.de etc. So why should anybody buy from you at HIGHER prices only because you are in the same country.
    And now the biggest problem, if you find a seller that is NOT selling to the UK, how will YOU get the items if you live in the UK???

    You Can Get Around All That...


    I think the OP is on to a good idea. As far as customers seeing your feedback -- simply open another free ebay account to buy goods with. I have 3 different egay accounts and all of them use the same paypal account. As far as the other worries, just do your research and math thoroughly -- and know which country the items sell the best in. Who cares if the guy you're buying from sells in the same country as you? -- the only thing that matters is are you are buying it low and can you sell it high -- regardless of the competition. Go for it.

    Thank you for sharing.
    I think it's a good idea, but I don't think it will work.
    I agree with #4(Barthezz). The customers may not be happy with the whole process.

    You will need some bucks to get this going...and when you do, don't mess up.

    A little too close for my tastes. Thanks anyway.

    Yeah, saw this one before somewhere else.
    At the time it looked like alit of with searching for the actual "deals "that may exist.
    I suppose you could outsource, but that sort of defeats the purpose.

    You won't believe how many sellers don't bother to sell their items on international ebay stores. and united states results appear on these sites only if there are not enough natural results.
    If the feedback stuff bothers you, you can buy the product from a separate ebay count.

    I read it all and it's indeed a good read. I've done kind of the same: Sellign items on ebay that I bought cheap on dealextreme.

    This item is old hat. Not only has it been around for years, but it is hard to find
    items with enough price difference to make it work. There is another big problem
    particularly selling electronic items in different countries, and that is the electricity
    supply may be different, as well as Trading Standards, etc., and not forgetting
    VAT, and import taxes, etc.

    So it is by no means as straight forward as it at first appears.
