***UPDATE***: It’s been a while since I made this site and some things have changed. While I still believe that Pricematik is a great software and did make $1,000/mo with them, I now strongly recommend that people use a dropshipping software called DSGenie. This article is to help you choose which is right for you and I’ll help you weigh the options.
DSGenie vs. Pricematik: Which Is The Best eBay Dropshipping Software?
So in this updated article I will be reviewing the 2 best eBay dropshipping softwares on the market today, Pricematik & DSGenie (short for “Dropship Genie”).
Keep in mind that:
- I have tried 2 other eBay listing software’s and none have the same quality and depth of features as these two
- Each software takes its own approach to dropshipping on eBay (you’ll understand this later) and it’s your choice to what method you want to use to list items
- Both softwares have awesome founders who I have personally talked to and are certainly honest and kind individuals that only want the best for their students and customers
…anyway, with that out of the way let’s now help you decided which software you should use to start your eBay dropshipping business (and possibly even scale to $10,000/mo like Marc, the founder of DSGenie did, who shows how he did it here).
It Has Never Been Easier To Start A Dropshipping Business On eBay…
…If you are reading this then you have probably wanted to start a business at some point in the past year or two.
I was exactly like this but I had no idea what to do or where to go…
EBay gets over 33 million visits a day (that is 33,000,000 visits!), is the 32nd most visited website in the world, and has the trust of being the largest site for auctions…
This means you don’t have to worry about getting people to see your listings; people are swarming to eBay daily already for items.
(If you’d like to learn more about the steps to dropship on eBay my friend Marc from DSGenie has a great guide right here. He shows exactly how he went from $300 in his bank account to $10,000/mo dropshipping with DSGenie.)

*Three Things I Forgot To Mention:
- I forgot to mention using CashBack. This is crucial and gives you back 3%-11% of the item’s purchase price. I used TopCashBack.com when ordering my items
- I forgot to mention you have to list items manually before using a software like Pricematik or DSGenie. If you go all out with a software you will get your account marked as spamming. Take it slow and easy at first and keep it manual for at least 2 days…then grab Pricematik or DSGenie and do what I say in the video
- You must keep margins at 10%-12% to get sales but don’t go too low or else the sales won’t be worth it
Note: I can make no guarantees on your earnings potential since I don’t know your work ethic. But if you work hard like I did you are highly likely to get the same results because of the sheer size of eBay and the tens of thousands of items you can sell. You must understand that anything you stick to and relentlessly work at will be successful.
As you can tell this stuff is pretty cool…anyway, let’s hop into the head-to-head comparison of DSGenie and Pricematik…
Pricematik Offers Good eBay Listing Templates and Solid Price Tracking On Listings
What I like about Pricematik is that you literally see exactly what your inventory is at all times…
…you can choose how often Pricematik updates your store’s stock against retailer stock and it visibly shows what items changed to what price.
This mean you always know the status of your store’s items and know exactly what to adjust to increase your sales.
Keywords are automatically generated, profit margin is automatically calculated, and the description is automatically copied to your listing (DSGenie does the first 2, but doesn’t copy the description automatically to protect you from other sellers getting mad you copied their description)
Pricematik Also Protects Your eBay Store From Copyright Infringement…
I have only had 1 listing removed from copyright in nearly 600 listings with Pricematik which is very good (when I used DSGenie I also never had a problem with copyright)
Pricematik also lets you monitor the competition’s listings and “snipe” (list for yourself) their highest selling listings to give your own sales a spike.
Pricematik is a solid software overall, but it lacks a strong support community around the software that DSGenie excels with (getting guidance is literally 80% of the process and it kept me from quitting my first month)
So with that, let’s discuss DSGenie…
DSGenie Is An eBay Dropshipping Software Focused Around Quality Over Quantity
The main contrast between Pricematik and DSGenie is that Pricematik takes a “dart-board” approach to listing items and finding best-sellers while with DSGenie you look at what is selling on eBay specifically and list those items at a lower price.
You bulk list with them or pick items from Walmart/Amazon that you think will get a lot of sales and you list as many items as possible to see what sticks.
There are 3 problems with this process:
- There is an “insertion fee” so the more you list, the more you pay monthly
- You aren’t looking at what is exactly selling on the eBay platform itself
- 90% of items you list will likely never sell and deleting the failed listings sucks
Pricematik does offer a similar “sniping” option where you beat other sellers prices, but it isn’t completely built around this listing model and this is where DSGenie stays unique.
Both ways work, but DSGenie’s mantra of “quality over quantity” saves you countless hours listing and you work less to make more.
This is the bread and butter of DSGenie and this is how the founder Marc Augustine (who I’m good friends with) went from being broke to making $10,000/mo dropshipping on eBay.
DSGenie Has The Absolute Best eBay Dropshipping Community To Help You Succeed
A strong support network is possibly the biggest element in your success when you try anything new.
Whether it be dropshipping, a new sport, or learning a new subject. You want to be around other people making good money doing what you want to do.
DSGenie’s Skype and Facebook group are the um-matched by anyone in how helpful and successful it’s members are.
I’ve been saved countless times from doing something stupid with my eBay store just because I took 30 extra seconds to ask/post in the Skype/Facebook group and get my question answers in minutes.
When you start dropshipping you will have a lot of questions and it is crucial that you have kind and supportive people around you to help you 24/7.
I’ve made many friends in the DSGenie Skype group and they’ve gotten me through a lot of challenging times (and prevented a lot of crippling mistakes I could’ve never seen coming).
This is why I recommend DSGenie over Pricematik for anyone looking to get their start dropshipping on eBay
And Since DSGenie Is So Simple and Easy To Use, There Is Absolutely…
- NO more waiting for “the right business to start”…
- NO guesswork on what to sell on eBay since you just list from trustable retailers…
- NO wondering what is in stock or out of stock in your store…
- NO more losing to your competitors since you can now compete prices with them…
- And NO being lost and confused, you are clicks away from one of the most successful communities of dropshippers that are there to help each other in the DSGenie Skype group (this was my favorite thing about DSGenie)
DSGenie Is The Answer To The Question “How Do I Make Money On eBay?”
The process to make money on eBay is now simple and straight forward:
Research best-sellers, list a ton of items, and profit…
…so there is no excuse to not start now
Best of all your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!
During my short trial I got about 30 sales which equates to about $300-$500 in sheer profit.
If this is not impressive then I don’t know what is; with half those results you’ll have paid the software off in 2 weeks.
What Others Are Saying About DSGenie…
“What I was most surprised about the DSGenie was how little time it took each day to manage my store. I got my first sale after 3 days of listing about 20 items a day. After that, it was just duplicating what I did to get those initial sales.DSGenie made it really easy to list items and compete with others’ prices. Thanks again.” – Stephen W (Ontario, Canada)
“I was really skeptical aboutDSGenie since it was a little pricey at the start. It was difficult to get the hang of eBay and managing my store with DSGenie, but after 3 or 4 days it became effortless. Sales started coming in and I was so relieved. DSGenie paid for itself in 2 weeks and now I’m scaling my eBay business to $4,000 per month. It’s been a hard road but well worth it and DSGenie made it all possible” –Wayne (Kansas City, Missouri)
“I found DSGenie after using eBay for a while. I had never tried any software to list on eBay so I just went for it and I’ve never looked back. I can list 10x more quality items than I could alone and my eBay business has grown pretty fast. My favorite thing is the Skype group full of dropshippers just like me. We are like a family in there all helping each other and I know I could never have been successful without the support DSGenie’s community gave me. I really recommend you check it out.” –Att. Patrick

It works fast (you don’t need to know anything about dropshipping on eBay. Just hop in and learn as you go)

If you don’t see the results you want you can cancel your trial no questions asked…

Final Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Now Is the Time To Start Towards Your Goals and Get Your Jumpstart Online In Business…
Because if you DON’T do anything today, you will always put off your goals another day:
Don’t be a dreamer, be an action taker!
A: You can get it directly from the creators of DSGenie here, but I recommend you go through the founder Marc’s videos course first here where he shows you how he built his own eBay dropshipping business to $10,000/mo.
Q: How fast will I get my first sale with DSGenie?
A: You should get your first sale no later than a week after starting with DSGenie. I personally got a sale my first day when I used them and went on to profit $500 during my short paid trial since I listed a lot, BUT I worked my butt off so you’ll have those same results if you work hard too.
Q: I currently have an eBay store, can I import my listings into DSGenie?
A: Yes. DSGenie does allow you to import existing listings for price tracking and DSGenie so there is no worry about migrating software.
Q: What happens if DSGenie doesn’t work for me?
A: This is very unlikely, but you can cancel your paid trial at any time should you not see the results you want and you’ll get a full refund. I actually know the founder personally and he is a great guy running an honest business. Marc would never screw anyone over and he wants you to succeed (because you stay with his software! It’s a win-win)
