There is one country that is negleted by all buyers: Brazil.
I can speak about it because I'm from there.While everybody is buying from china where most of the products has poor quality, Brazil is a modern country with companies that some of them are ISO9000,ISO9002 CERTIFIED dying to do business overseas,from clothing (brazil is one of the best producer of cotton) electronics,high quality fashion for womem and the list goes on and on, the best part of this whole thing is; your dollar worth more there because of the currency exchange....as far goes for antiques; brazil is almost untouched source of all kinds of priceless antiques, and the locals dont even know about it!!!
You make an excellent point about Brazil, most people do look towards Asia for better value. I must confess that Brazil would not have even been on my Radar to source products, but you have certainly engaged my interest now.
I would actually make this a new thread if I were you, as I'm sure there would be a lot of members who would like to know more. I would suggest that you could be a lot of help to other members with your insight, and your location.
I think you will find a lot of countries like yours, with cities and towns having all sorts of hidden treasures. It never fails to amuse me that most people who want to sell online look online for products to sell. It never seems to occur to them that they are a very small fish in a huge pond when using this method. If I was looking for products to sell online the last place I would be looking is online. I would be looking at every offline avenue I could think of to source products. It's the whole concept behind our network, unearthing bargains that the online community don't have access to, and then trying to link it all together for everyone to benefit. Of course we are focusing on Auctions to start with, but if you visited our site lately you may have read that we are also trying to put a liquidation network into practice.
There is absolutely no reason why we can't expend the network to cater for many different types of fields, If there is a call for it, and if we have the agents on the ground in the right areas.
We would certainly be happy to have you provide some services through our network. If you have something particular in mind, just let me know.
Thanks for the wake up call!
