Drop Shipping Automation:
I’ll never forget the first time I listed something on eBay. It was a nightmare.
It took me hours figuring out the system, choosing the right title words and preparing good photos to upload. With time and experience I got it down to a few minutes per product. Nevertheless as my products numbered in the hundreds and then in the thousands, I found myself spending far too much time listing new products.
But the story became much worse when I had to deal with price changes.
One of the things which will make you lose a lot of money is the constant changing in price by the suppliers. Sites like Amazon and Walmart change the price of millions of products every week. Some prices even change from hour to hour during the holiday seasons. When you list something on eBay with one price and then the supplier changes theirs an hour later, what in the world do you do now???
For example, just imagine you saw an item on Amazon for $100 and listed it on eBay for $130. A few hours later Amazon raises the price to $150 while you’re still selling it for $130. If it sells, you’ve lost not just $20 but another $15-$20 in eBay and PayPal fees too. The only way to get out of this problem is to check the price of every single one of your products every few hours. Maybe you can do it for a while with only 5-10 products but what will you do when you have hundreds of products listed on eBay? Spend 24 hours a day tracking prices??? It’s insane!!!
That’s when I discovered an awesome listing program called DSHOPIT. With this program all you need is the item number (or ASIN) of your product from Amazon or Walmart, put it in the system and within a minute you have a new product live on eBay. You can create a standard format in advance to include all the information you want to put into your listing and DSHOPIT does it all automatically including uploading all the pictures.
This is only a small part of the program. The real benefit is in tracking price changes. This program monitors your listings and the price changes on your suppliers. As soon as the supplier changes their price, DSHOPIT will adjust your price on eBay accordingly.
That’s why I believe that you absolutely MUST have a professional listing and repricing software like DSHOPIT. This kind of drop shipping automation is a real lifesaver for any eBay Drop-shipping business.

Wish you much success!
