eBay Dropshipping is dead 2020 | Yes, but - no
2020 was a hell of a year for any eBay seller. Covid-19 has challenged us to survive almost 1 year long China New Years. Furthermore, local sellers were not safe too – the sorting centres were one huge disaster worldwide. Some survived this mess however some did not. Moreover, we have noticed huge spike in dropshipping policy violations as well as a large number of accounts being flagged. One big question has risen: eBay Dropshipping Is Dead 2020?
Ebay is a marketplace with rules changing every quarter, sometimes every month. We as sellers are obligated to adapt to these changes as fast as possible, however, due to COVID-19 in 2020, it was almost impossible to adapt. For this reason, some eBay dropshippers have just given up and started to shout – eBay dropshipping is dead. We would like to tell you it’s not – eBay dropshipping is better than ever!
Bad dropshippers VS good dropshippers
The difficulties that all of us has faced showed us which eBay dropshippers are good are which are just bad. Before the difficult times, even an average Joe who logged in into eBay account once a week could pull off eBay dropshipping. However, the times have changed – finally! All of the average Joe’s that made Dropshippers look bad in front of eBay’s eyes disappeared.
