Default Dropship Is Safe Or Not?

I am the dropshipper on Ebay. I receive payment from my customer and then directly place order on Ebay. And then I tell Ebay seller to sell product out with my name. But each time I find that people buy from me just order one time. Does Ebay seller thieve my customer? Or customers do not have requirement any more? Have you come across this situation? Any seller can provide honesty dropship service?

Actually, you are the Seller on Ebay. The Dropshipper is the one who ships the goods to your customer.

I am a dropshipper (honest, too) but have also been a seller and my experience was that very few people bought a second time. Most were looking for one thing, and never came back.

Any good dropshipper will not steal your customer, that is not what they want to do. They want you to sell, them to ship out.

Dropshipping is safe as long as you're using a trustworthy source. However, your problem probably doesn't have anything to do with the dropship source; there are a lot of people who just buy from a seller once and then go on their merry way. It just happens that they were looking for an item, found it, bought it, and then didn't need to come back. But this is common. As long as you sell products that people want/need, new customers will keep coming to your store. So don't worry.
