Ok so why Import2eBay? Why not “Drop-Shipping to eBay” or “Wholesaling to eBay” ?

Well, the fact of the matter is, if you want to be competitive on eBay and be successful, you have to learn to CUT OUT THE MIDDLE-MEN, simples!

Wholesalers and drop-shipping companies are all middle-men, adding their own profit margins on top of the product price.

The knowledge and training that I am going to teach you in my Import2eBay event will teach you how to cut out the middlemen by importing directly from manufacturers. In turn, you’ll learn how this will dramatically increase your profit margins on eBay.

There are many drop-shipping companies on the internet, and by using them you will never compete on price on eBay. You will only come up against seasoned eBayers, like myself, who import directly from China! A whole section dedicated just to drop-shipping companies could be written outlining the pitfalls. There maybe some honest and decent ones out there, but the internet is plagued with the scammers and their flash websites promising you the earth but which will deliver you nothing! So why run the risk?

Back in my naïve early eBay days some 12 years ago; I found out that when you had signed up to their flash websites promising fast eBay riches, you’d soon discover that their stock prices were never competitive enough for the eBay marketplace. I lost track of the times I sent drop-shipping companies my orders only to be told the item was not in stock, despite their website saying that it was!!

Another headache are the delays in these companies sending your item out to your customer. That’s if they don’t send them the wrong item out in the first place! Worst case scenario is that your customer’s item gets lost in the post which does happen from time to time, you are left in a third party chain for communicating these problems to your customer. The customer naturally gets’ fed up with the whole fiasco, you get the blame and the detrimental feedback comment.

As you can see, I am not a fan of drop-shipping. The companies or scammers, who market these websites make it all look so easy and effortless to an eBay newbie, and they will always grab their attention and their wallets in kidding them into a “get rich quick” eBay business.

Still thinking of drop-shipping despite my warnings? BE WARNED drop-shipping is, in fact, illegal on eBay!  eBay states that all “stock needs to be owned and in the possession of the seller”.

So in MY view, from my personal eBay success, you want to give yourself the best possible starting point in making your eBay business a long term, profitable enterprise.  Avoid the pitfalls and scams, you need IMPORT2EBAY!



(Q) Ok so what is Import2eBay?

(A) It’s a 12-month training program for learning how to import from China and sell products on eBay / online.

(Q) So who is Import2eBay for?

(A) Import2eBay is designed for intermediate / advanced level of business people.  However, I have taken on complete novices to people with established LTD companies on eBay turning 100k +.  I have had people fly in from the USA and Ireland to attend my courses, so my reputation for giving value and helping to build businesses is number 1 in this industry.  

(Q) How many training days do you do each year?

(A) I only hold ONE training day weekend each year, THAT’S IT.

(Q) £595 is a lot of money, is it really a good investment?

(A)  If you’re really serious about starting to import products, selling them on eBay and building a regular income outside of the rat race, then YES. I am going to give you EVERYTHING you need, i.e. all the tools to do the job, by showing you all the strategies, techniques, systems, and software that I use daily to make my own businesses a success.  Not only that but with the support package, I am going to hold your hand for the first 12 months to ensure you get well on your way to becoming a successful and profitable importer / eBay entrepreneur. 

(Q) Do I need lots of money to get started to buy stock?

(A) No you can start with a little as £100 importing products from well known China supplying websites. I show you how to effectively do this on the course and I show you other business models to get you started on eBay. I also offer you a cheap alternative to importing via sea freight using my Agents mixed container service, which allows you to import smaller quantities of products on pallets into the UK. Thus reducing your capital outlay, allowing you to cut out the middle men, making you competitive online and increasing your profit margins! 

(Q) I don’t have any ideas on what to import or sell so where do I start?

(A) I physically show you lots of products on the day that you can start right away importing with to double your money.  If you are struggling to find products then I will give you additional training and help in this area.

(Q) I have already got an eBay account and I have sold stuff on there, so I guess I already know it all?

(A) My favorite saying is, “Assumption is the mother of all fuck ups” If you already know it all then you wouldn’t be here looking at this website as you would be too busy doing what we are already doing!

Also, eBay has evolved and still is evolving every year, not many people know how to get an eBay listing to the first page of a category or key word search. A little like Google SEO, there is eBay SEO and you have got to know and understand how to align your listings to eBay’s “Best Match” algorithm. There are also a number of other strategies and techniques that the top level sellers like myself use in order to stay on top and keep the competition at bay.

You need to have an understanding for the psychology of eBay buyers and what factors trigger them into purchasing. Then there is design and marketing, building confidence in your prospect to buy from you and not one of your competitors, and NO it doesn’t always come down to price. In fact, I’m the probably highest priced seller in the majority of my niches and I still make more money from these products than any of my competitors do because I understand how to market and how to implement it effectively in my listings.

I also know how to split test and maximize key wording on my listing titles and what other factors contribute to this to help boost your listing in becoming more searchable, thus increasing sales. To cut it short you are basically getting over 10 years of my knowledge on what works and what doesn’t work to make you stay on top and become a platinum power seller like myself.

Lewis Wade

I have been importing since 2005 and have two staffed warehouses.  I sell mainly online through eBay, Amazon and my own ecommerce websites. The majority of my import business is via sea freight in 20ft & 40ft containers and I travel to China 2-3 times a year visiting trade fairs, shows, suppliers, factories and agents. I have been recognised by eBay for having one of the fastest growing eBay shops and I have a dedicated eBay account manager for my eBay accounts. I have also been invited to many of the eBay Key Merchant growth seminars around the UK.

I was personally invited by Global Sources, a major Chinese sourcing portal to speak on stage at the World Asia Expo Centre in Hong Kong as a recognized industry expert for importing products from China and selling onto eBay. 


I eat, sleep and breathe my import business, selling physical products online which is why I have the credentials, expertise and knowledge of someone you can trust in to deliver you genuine training on running a successful Import/eBay business. 

I have been running the training program Import2eBay for 4 years and as a result I have had the pleasure of watching a growing number of my students grow in confidence and expertise to run full time and part time import businesses successfully. I have also taken students out to China to show them around factories and to personally introduce them to my Agents and QC team.
