Q.What countries are supported by Profit Scraper?
A.Profit Scraper currently supports USA, UK, Canada, France, Germany and Italy. You can use the eBay arbitrage method worldwide. So if you live in the UK, you can list items on eBay UK and eBay USA and even other countries. It doesn’t matter because the location of the items are in the supplier’s warehouse (e.g. Amazon), so you just use the supplier website where your customer lives and send the product directly to them!
Q.Will other members clone/copy my own eBay account using your software?
A.No! Profit Scraper has a built-in protection mechanism which you can use as long as you are a member. If any other user tries to enter your eBay ID into Profit Scraper, it won’t let them search your listings.
Q.Do You Offer A Free Trial Or Refunds?
A.We offer a FREE trial for 14 days so you can try our service without any limitations. Then if you decide to continue, you will be billed the full cost of your membership option on the 15th day (so 14 full days of access for FREE). You will need a credit/debit card or paypal account to activate the free trial and you must remember to cancel your trial via the member’s area if you don’t want to continue with the paid subscription, or you will be billed automatically after the trial ends.
We do offer refunds if there was a genuine reason, but if you have used the service successfully then there are no refunds given.
Q.Won't eBay customers be annoyed if they see that item they bought came from Amazon and was cheaper?
A.No, because when you order the customer’s item from Amazon, you choose the “send as a gift” option. Amazon will then ship the order without any mention of the price.
Q.Can Profit Scraper monitor prices on Amazon and update my listings on eBay if they go up?
A.Yes, Profit Scraper has built-in price and stock monitoring available for all members. We have different priced membership plans based on the amount of listings that are actively being monitored. Stock/prices are checked approximately every 45 minutes.
Q.Can Profit Scraper upload items directly to my eBay account?
A.Yes, any hot selling Amazon items that you find with Profit Scraper can be instantly uploaded directly to your eBay account. All information such as product title, description and photos will be copied across in seconds without you lifting a finger and will result in the listings being created directly in your eBay account ready for selling immediately. Not only this, but if you find Amazon items outside of Profit Scraper that you want to list, you can simply copy the Amazon product code (ASIN) or URL and paste this into our software and list these one by one or in bulk – the choice is yours.
Q.Will eBay or Amazon ban my accounts?
A.This is a common question from people getting started with dropshipping. The simple answer is no, as long as you follow some simple rules. For eBay, they actually support dropshipping from Amazon and if you call and ask them, they are fine with it, as long as you keep your account in good standing, ship on time and have good feedback. For Amazon, if you are a prime member, then you should ship items using the 3-5 day shipping option or ask them for a reseller/business account. You should never post items using a next day or 2 day service if you have an Amazon prime account because they will eventually close your account.
Q.How many sales can I make a day with dropshipping?
A.Most dropshippers would sell on average around 1% of their inventory per day. So that means if you have 100 listings you should expect to sell 1 item per day. If you have 10,000 listings, then you should expect to sell 100 items per day. Average profit per item is $2-$3 if dropshipping from Amazon and to be competitive. The aim of this business model is to build up your listing limit on eBay each month. You can call them and usually double (or near enough) your listing limit each month, as long as you are dispatching items on time and receiving good feedback from customers. You will achieve better results if you spend time editing your listing’s titles, descriptions and if you have an eBay account with top seller status (Top Rated Seller) as eBay will give you a bump in their search results and a discount on fees too.
Q.Do I need an eBay shop in order to use Profit Scraper's price/stock monitoring?
A.Yes you need a shop because your listings must be set as Good Till Cancelled so that we can set your stock to 0 if the item goes out of stock on Amazon. You should also have the setting in your eBay selling settings to use the Out of Stock option for this reason.
Q.Do you offer an affiliate program?
A.Yes, we offer a very attractive affiliate program which pays 20% recurring per referral (not including trial members). Please see this page for details.
Q.Do you offer Auto ordering?
A.Yes, we have full eBay -> Amazon auto ordering available for just 15 cents per order.
