Oh Dude... i am trying to get ready to sell on ebay and mp3 players was my first set of study, if those guys don't know the stocks down to the exact number, TEHY ARE MIDDLEMEN i know from experiance and mainly because a man who got me onto dropshippping etc explainedhow they worked and showed me.
And with the hong kong sellers i know what you mean there's a guy i'm buying mp4 players off for 60$ free shippping and the thing is thats friggin cheap, he's a power seller in the usa, but when he sent me an automated message it was written in a composed form of broken english. ( i know what it looks like i'm greek with many family email coming in).
He's stock is in HK but he's apparently based in the U.S
So if anyone know's a way anyone of us could find a way into that deal i'd be stoked. I'm in aus so it's tougher for us to dropship most sites won't deal with anyone not based in america.
