BlueCare Express Tracking in eBay Dropshipping Explained

7 min read

Do you know that there is an easy trick that will help you to maintain a good eBay seller ranking? Well, without further ado, it consists of using the Bluecare express tracking, especially if you dropship from Amazon to eBay. Read this post to learn more about it. 

One of the disadvantages of dropshipping from Amazon to eBay is the Amazon Logistics tracking, also known by the name “AMZL”. When Amazon ships a product with their own shipping carrier, they provide unique tracking numbers that can be tracked only on the Amazon page.

This carrier isn’t recognized by eBay. Hence, these tracking details cannot be validated on eBay. Providing such TBA tracking can have a negative effect on your seller ranking on eBay.

Let’s have a look at the ways how Amazon tracking numbers influence eBay sellers and what can be done.

How Amazon tracking numbers affect the eBay sellers’ accounts? 

If you dropship from Amazon on eBay and provide AMZL tracking, it can have an effect on your eBay account in multiple ways:

1. Good seller rating

eBay ranks its sellers according to many parameters, one of which is the percentage of the orders that can be tracked on eBay with a valid tracking number.

The Amazon Logistics tracking numbers cannot be validated on eBay and can impede you from keeping the good eBay rating and even lead to the account suspension.

Luckily, unlike other seller ranking parameters, your eBay seller ranking doesn’t go below standard if you don’t upload valid tracking numbers. But it’s increasing the risk of your account getting suspended. Especially in the combination with other issues with the account such as unfulfilled orders or cases that did not get any response.

By the way, before the eBay dropshipping policy came out in early 2019,  it might have been possible to become a Top-rated seller when dropshipping from Amazon, but it’s no longer possible.

2. Customer support service

Tracking numbers is one of the ways to build a trust-based relationship with your buyers. When shipping with Amazon tracking, the buyers are not able to track the item. It can lead to hesitations and a big number of queries, even to open cases on eBay. Besides, the buyers might perceive it as a scam. 

3. Lost cases on eBay

In case a buyer claims they didn’t receive the product you sold them, you won’t have legit proof to win the case they open on eBay or PayPal. You will have to both refund them and deal with the negative effect losing cases has on your seller rating.

In order to avoid the mentioned cases, you can consider using the BlueCare express solution. Let’s see the how and the why.

What is The BlueCare Express Solution? 

The BlueCare Express solution, aka BCE, is an accepted-by-eBay carrier that is being used to accurately validate the tracking information when the order is being processed by Amazon Logistics.  The Amazon to eBay dropshipping sellers use it to convert Amazon trackings numbers to valid BlueCare tracking numbers. Since eBay accepts the BlueCare tracking information, buyers can track eBay orders from their accounts and on 3rd party sites.

  2. Drop shipping from Amazon is NOT allowed on eBay anymore! A seller CAN drop ship and have an item sent to a buyer from a WHOLESALER, but not from a retailer. Amazon is the latter, a retailer. If a seller buys and item from Amazon and has it drop shipped to a buyer via Blue Care, he or she is violating eBay policy.
