How To Make Money On eBay: Tools To Make $10,000/mo on eBay (DSGenie vs. Pricematik Review)

***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?

dsgenie vs. pricematik

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:

  1. I have tried 2 other eBay listing software’s and none have the same quality and depth of features as these two
  2. 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
  3. 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…

But let’s think here, if you’re reading this in the beginning of 2017 then there really is no faster way to make money online than selling ebay dropshipping software

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.)

In-Depth Demonstration On Starting Your eBay Dropshipping Business Today*

*Three Things I Forgot To Mention:

  1. I forgot to mention using CashBack. This is crucial and gives you back 3%-11% of the item’s purchase price. I used when ordering my items
  2. 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
  3. 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.

dropshipping on ebay with Pricematik

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…

On top of all of the insight Pricematik dropshipping on ebay businessgives you on your inventory, it also ensures that you never list copyright items by warning you in advance of listing the item.

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:

  1. There is an “insertion fee” so the more you list, the more you pay monthly
  2. You aren’t looking at what is exactly selling on the eBay platform itself
  3. 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.

(Click Here See Marc’s Detailed Guide On How He Did It)

DSGenie Has The Absolute Best eBay Dropshipping Community To Help You Succeed

DSGenie Success

The DSGenie Facebook & Skype group is unmatched in how helpful other memebers are…

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

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

DSGenie F.A.Q.

DSGenieQ: Where can I buy DSGenie?

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)

    1. Mike

      Once somone buys your item, then you purchase the item you listed from the site, wouldnt the customer get somone elses distinctive box and shipping label? As well as invoice…invoice may be easier to avoid byt what about box and company name on label???

      1. bephrem Post author

        Never had a problem with this with Walmart after 250+ orders. Make sure you send the order as a gift to prevent an invoice from going through but even without this I’ve not had a problem

    1. bephrem Post author

      You don’t have to but I recommend it. What I did was I looked up the keywords in eBay and quickly saw what was ranking for that item and tried to work them in my item’s descriptions. Sometimes the supplier’s title is perfect and sometimes it sucks


  2. Curt

    Hello Ben, Do you price Item to just make your profit ,or to just beet trending price, or beet all competors price ??


    1. bephrem Post author

      You price it so that you keep your desired profit margin WHILE beating competitors. If both conditions can’t be met then I keep looking for more items (unless the item is a hot seller)


  3. Igor

    Hey Ben,

    I havent started dropshipping yet but I am wondering how soon PayPal allows one to use the funds to purchase an item from Walmart? Does it happen straightaway or would I need to wait? I dont have that much cash and I need to know how much is enough/practical to invest upfront if PayPal causes lags.

    My second question is about the number of items that you had to list to make around $1000 per month?

    Thanks !

    1. bephrem Post author

      Hey, so Paypal holds normally disappear after 1-3 months of good selling, but mine disappeared in month 1/2 (I don’t know why) so I could push through and sell a lot. To get to $1,000 per month….hmmm….it all depends, it takes about 5-10 best sellers to reach that amount and every 100 items you’ll have roughly 1-3 best sellers so 200-300 listings I think but that’s rough. Just keep listing and do this as a side thing until it builds up.

    1. bephrem Post author

      No, but you have to watch your listing limits doing anything bulk and make sure your margins are good. It’s all about experimenting

  4. Mike Patterson

    Hi. I like your video on dropshipping and I have been researching dropshipping before I start. My wife and I already have ebay accounts which we sell used items on for a couple years now. Dropshipping caught my eye because of the profit that can be made. Question. When someone purchases the dropshipping item from you on ebay, all you need to do is to place the order with walmart with all of the customers info? And is this legal?

    1. Mike Patterson

      To add on, since I already have a rating on ebay can I use pricematik immediately without being flagged? And how much quantity of each item should you list at a time?

      1. bephrem Post author

        List at least 2 quantity each time (so you can use promoted listings later…boosts sales like 30% if you set it to 2% eBay’s cut) and I’d list 1 or 2 items before going all out on Pricematik, then you’ll likely be ok

    2. bephrem Post author

      Yep, and yes it is 100% legal. The fact your accounts are aged is EXCELLENT because eBay and PayPal are jerks to new sellers (if you have sales on the account even better). If your listing limits are good you can scale to the moon but this is a very time intensive business, hence why it is cash-flow

  5. Taylor

    I am a college student who would like to make money fast but I do not have much to spend. $99 in my account and my car insurance is due in two weeks. How much will It cost me to get started? With little money is it still possible to profit in a short amount of time?

    1. bephrem Post author

      I wouldn’t recommend this then. Starting an online business requires a cash cushion because you’ll likely fail a lot. It depends…some catch on fast and have PayPal limits released, some take a while to get rolling. I actually now recommend a different software called DSGenie (the one I started with that I stopped using, but it’s gotten revamped so I prefer it now and I’m about to convert this site to do a DSGenie vs. Pricematik comparison). I suggest you get a job (minimum-wage, whatever) and then from there you’ll have room to operate to try things like this, good lucK!

  6. Joy

    Can I have your email im interested but it’s my first time. And I’m using Samsung s7 edge do you think I can work from my smartphone or I have to buy a laptop. Thanks hoping to hear from you soon.

    1. bephrem Post author

      Haha, you’ll need a laptop certainly, it’s quite labor intensive sometimes and you need full mobility (pun intended) and the computer-ness that a laptop offers.

  7. Michael

    Dear Ben,

    Thank you for your videos and advice.
    Please explain, when you say sell bestsellers from Walmart on Ebay on margin 10-12% is it net margin or margin including all expenses which adds up to 20% in total? And one more thing why do we look for bestsellers on Walmart not on Ebay, as I thought if you sell on ebay, then should looke for best sellers on Ebay? Thank you

    1. bephrem Post author

      I actually now recommend a different software called DSGenie (the one I started with that I stopped using, but it’s gotten revamped so I prefer it now and I’m about to convert this site to do a DSGenie vs. Pricematik comparison). DSGenie let’s you list from any manufacturer which is why I like it (and it has a better support group than Pricematik). The margin is after expenses so 10-12% after all fees happen so yes a 20% cumulative margin roughly. And in regards to your last question, dropshipping is when you use a retailer as a supplier and then fulfill orders on eBay using the supplier (so you don’t have to have stock). Selling eBay items on eBay is kind of unnecessary since Walmart (or whatever retailer) will usually have lower prices. Good luck!

    1. bephrem Post author

      For returns you get the return shipping label from the supplier (remove any branding) and give it to the customer via message. Then they ship it back and you are refunded to whatever payment method you got the item from the supplier for.

  8. Tatiana C.

    Could you explain more on what you mean by this comment

    ((List at least 2 quantity each time (so you can use promoted listings later…boosts sales like 30% if you set it to 2% eBay’s cut) and I’d list 1 or 2 items before going all out on Pricematik, then you’ll likely be ok))

    I want to make sure I am listing correctly.

    1. bephrem Post author

      If you use any software initially it’s indicative of spammy accounts so you make manual listings at first and get some reviews (if you want to be extra sure) before using software because eBay may stop the account on premise that they think it’s a robot account. Also, with promotion eBay takes a cut of whatever % you set it at and they show your listing more, make sure you’re still making a profit. I found 2% to bring the best results with promotion (pushing my overall margin to about 8%-10% but more sales so whatever). Check back here soon because I’m actually going to convert this site to showcase a software I think edges out Pricematik named DSGenie, it has a way better support system (they have a Skype group) so your questions can be quickly answered and they let you use any supplier

  9. Emmanuel

    Hello I made my first sale today on ebay using pricematik and i am a little confused if I have to have the item that i am listing with me or if I have to purchase it online from the manufacturer or retailer and then send it out to the recipient, If you could help me I would appreciate it since I have listed over 30 items and I don’t want my ebay account to get banned…so far I’m really excited using this software because it really works~! I am currently 17 years old and I am saving money to move out my parents house next year 🙂

    thank you for your time!

    1. bephrem Post author

      Haha, for one, don’t focus on the “moving out of your parents house” thing. Online business takes some time and don’t stress yourself with external goals because they only sap your energy. Also, way to take action! So you just order the item from Walmart (or whatever supplier you chose) and they send the item to the customer (you put the customer’s address in). Keep at it, I used to dropship but learned e-commerce wasn’t for me so just experiment around and find what works for you

  10. Rasool Horton

    Hi, how are you? I just set up my eBay business account and pricematik today I was wondering do you have a video on how to list from Walmart and do we need to set up an account with Walmart in order to drop ship products from that retailer? I just want to make sure I am doing this correctly without any mistakes in the beginning. I want to list tonight about two products asap. Lastly, should I do the 14 day trial or I can just start with what I got and then move from there in the future or I need to activate the 14 day trial in order to get a better experience and to make profits quickly. Oh! Before I forget do I need an eBay store or just the regular way of listing is sufficient for now?I hope to hear from you asap.

    1. bephrem Post author

      Yes, yes, yes, and yes 🙂 I’m revamping this site to promote a different software (that I think is actually better than Pricematik as a long-term option) called DSGenie, check back soon for updates
