Already have a site with decent traffic and I'm looking for any ways to make money with it
I've read some article about "how to make money dropshipping from Amazon" but I really don't understand which they're guiding me. Perhaps, I'm still new with earning money ways from internet.
Does anyone try to earn money dropshipping from Amazon? please give me a guide? what it is and how to apply it to sell products?

It's not really dropshipping at all. whoever wrote that article was most likely talking about just being an Amazon Associate. Selling products from Amazon and having them ship their products make you an affiliate...not a dropshipper. Their commission rates are extremely low by the way. Most people who sell Amazon products as an associate either focus on HIGH VOLUME or HIGH TICKET. Selling alot of a cheap widget...or selling a few of a very expensive widget. Actual dropshipping is a difficult and nuanced business model that requires a whole business operation set up...FAR from the easy riches and 4 hour workweek sensationalism.

Yep! Dropshipping is just finding an item with a low enough price, that you can resell it and make a profit.

So for instance I have a particular stun gun that I find on Amazon for really cheap and sell it on eBay for $15 more. Person buys from me on eBay and then I buy it from Amazon and ship it straight to them!

Or some sellers choose to have it shipped to themselves and rebox it so they can control what type of box it is. Most of the time it will show up in a Amazon box, so someone might complain, but I've never had a complaint.

Here's a thread I wrote on my method for dropshipping.

That should answer any drop shipping questions.

I'd call that ARBITRAGE...not DROP SHIPPING. But let's not quibble over semantics.

My sister just had this happen to her. She just got a package she had ordered off of eBay but when she got the package it was from Amazon and she was confused. There are people that do this and make money. They find a product they can source cheaper on Amazon but don't buy it until they have the sale on eBay. But I wonder what happens if the product you advertised was no longer available?

I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but for me I don't think I'd do it because my sister, like many savvy shoppers saw that she could have saved money getting it on Amazon and was angry. Angry at herself mostly, but some customers will leave bad feedback because they feel you price gouged them.

Many sellers must think it's worth the risk, and I dare say, they probably make more money than I do. I always try to put myself in the customers shoes before I do anything from sourcing to pricing.

Dropshipping cheap Amazon products to Ebay? Yeah it does work. However, until you have a good level of feedback, or find a really hot product to sell, you won't be making consistent sales. That is what killed it for me.
