Dropshippers Spreadsheet Database NOT Allowed on Amazon?

Dropshippers Spreadsheet Database NOT Allowed on Amazon?

Posted by Big Brand on 17th Jun 2021

We get an absolute ton of inquiries about spreadsheets for people to upload to Amazon for the purpose of Dropshipping. Since we don’t have this to offer we refer people to our list of 59+ wholesale companies that do. With that being said, you may have noticed that many companies, although they do offer spreadsheets that have UPCs for dropshipping, they do not allow these databases to be uploaded to Amazon. But Why? Here’s the answer:

Even though Amazon allows the use of dropshippers, a large quantity of the companies that offer spreadsheets and dropshipping also sell the same items from the database on Amazon, and, quite frankly, they don’t want you trying to compete with them. All of these dropshippers who also sell on Amazon have control of the famous Amazon “Buy Button” which greatly increases their sales, so if you come along and use their spreadsheets to steal their Buy Button, they are going to ban you quicker than a pedo at an elementary school.

So now you may be wondering, “Then what the heck am I supposed to do with the spreadsheet?” Answer: Upload it to a site that is deemed acceptable by the dropshipper who is offering the sheet. Some require you to upload only to your own .com site. Others allow uploads to marketplaces. All you have to do is read the dropshippers Terms / FAQs pages on their site.
