eBay Dropshipping – #1 Reason Sellers Get Banned AND How To Avoid 2022
Transcribe of “eBay Dropshipping – #1 Reason Sellers Get Banned AND How To Avoid 2022”
In this week’s video, I’ll share with you the number one reason eBay sellers get banned for dropshipping. And I’ll also share with you how to avoid this from happening to you. And also, I’ll show you how you can see what your stats are and what eBay sees in your account. For anybody new to this channel, my name’s Neil Waterhouse. I’ve been selling eBay for 24 years. I’m the author of “Million Dollar eBay Business From Home” and creator of Dropship Formula. So let’s launch straight into it.
Some people say that eBay does not like third-party fulfillment or dropshipping, or it’s not allowed by eBay. However, that is not correct. eBay clearly states in their terms of service that third-party fulfillment and dropshipping is allowed. For any newbies watching this video, the term third-party fulfillment means using a third-party warehouse to hold and ship your inventory. Dropshipping and third-party fulfillment are very similar. eBay allows dropshipping and third-party fulfillment.
However, what eBay does not like is customers not receiving the items that they ordered. When a customer orders an item but they don’t receive it, the buyer opens a case on eBay. That case is called an item not received case. These are known in the industry as INRs, which is short for item not received. eBay very closely monitors the ratio of how many INR cases each seller receives compared to how many items they sell. And I’ll show you in the video how to see how many INR cases your eBay account or eBay accounts have received.
The big point to note here is eBay knows how many INR cases an average eBay seller receives compared to how many items they sell per month. Like I’ve been saying for years, to survive on eBay and Amazon for long haul, your shipping averages only need to be average. But of course, always strive to make them above average. It’s like the old saying, “How fast do you need to be to outrun a lion?” The answer, of course, is just a little bit faster than the person next to you.
It’s the same with dropshipping on eBay and Amazon. Your shipping times only need to be average to keep off the radar. One big mistake that many dropship beginners make is they do not put in place a methodology that continually checks their supplier’s inventory levels, to make sure their suppliers have stock for all the items they have listed. Selling items that your supplier’s sold out of is what creates oversell situations. If your supplier runs out of stock of an item, it is critical to make the listings on eBay, Amazon, and Shopify, et cetera, to show zero available so the items don’t oversell.
You can do this manually, or you can fully automate the process using a program like Scarcity Manager, or scarcitymanager.com. Scarcity Manager, or SM, as we call it, continually checks your supplier’s inventory. If an item runs out of stock, SM will automatically make your eBay, Amazon, and Shopify listings go to zero available so buyers can’t purchase them. Selling items that your supplier does not have in stock in the industry is called overselling. What eBay and Amazon don’t like is when buyers place orders, but the buyers don’t get what they ordered, or the item does arrive but not in the timeframes that a seller states on a listing.
For example, if an eBay seller shows a one-day handling time but they consistently ship in three days, this can put the seller on the eBay radar. Let me show you. In this screenshot, you can see this new eBay seller has sold six items, and one item has not been received, therefore creating a 16.67% item not received ratio. I’ll put a link at the end of the video, where you can pull the same information from your eBay accounts, that you can see the ratios for your eBay account or eBay accounts. On this same page, if you scroll the bottom, it shows Download report. Note, though, this Download report button will only show if you have INR cases.
If you have no INR cases, the button does not show. If I click on this Download report button, you can download a CSV file that shows any item not received cases or any late arrival cases in your account. From this download, you can see the date a customer purchased an item, the handling time that you have specified in your listing, the shipper you selected, the estimated delivery date that is based on the post code you selected in the listing and the postcode of your customer, and the handling time that you specified when you listed the item, also, the tracking number, and most importantly, the date the item arrived.
Note that this is the exact same information that eBay uses to compare you and every other seller on the platform. If one eBay seller’s ratios are radically different to the average seller, that is what makes one seller show up on the eBay radar. If you need the link to check your INRs, I’ll put a link on the screen and below. I’ll also put the link to Scarcity Manager that automatically checks your supplier’s inventory and can make your eBay, Amazon, and Shopify listings go to zero available if your supplier runs out of stock. If you need more dropship suppliers, I’ll also put a link on the screen and below to where you can download over 900 dropship suppliers from all over the world right now, for free.
