If you are an eBay drop shipper, going out of stock is one of our biggest fears, crossing our fingers when we go to our suppliers website and praying it is still in stock!
I have been selling on eBay for 15 years, and dropshipping full time for the last few years, and I have found ways to make sure I never go out of stock, and if I should, I would search other suppliers to find it.
There are "guru's" out there telling newbie dropshippers to search eBay for your item, if you should go out of stock. NEWSFLASH! The odds are that if you are out of stock, they are too!!
Let me give you an example. I recently sold a couple bags of dog food to an eBay buyer, went to my supplier, and guess what? It was out of stock! Just for kicks, I searched the username of the eBay buyer and found he was also an eBay drop shipper!!
Use common scene, there are thousands of people drop shipping on eBay now, and 99.9% use the same supplier!! If they have the same photo and description as you, guess what? They are using your supplier! Why would you think "bubba" with a 5 feedback score will have a warehouse full of your out of stock item! lol!!!
