The small sucess I have had with selling videogames on ebay has been with the XBOX 360 titles.After seeing games like Gears of War and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 selling well I naturally assumed that these products would be profitable.
However perhaps concentrating on one brand of videogame is unwise and I am now trying to source wholesalers within Australia with a broader range of titles for resale.
Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
We've found a few very popular 360 titles, Borderlands, Forza3 to name a couple, but yeah, our data indicates that it's not a strong market, but of course you have to balance that against the titles we did carry, our price, the market at the time and so on, and I am unfortunately unable to give up that sort of trading data : )
I'm sure there is still 360 titles there that are good sellers, but I think looking at the market as a whole is a better plan. Same as everything really, if you cover as much as you can then you'll be in a position to gather your own data over time, and then start to narrow your focus to increase your take.
No great surprise that Irene is struggling to find wholesalers here in Oz, most volume purchasing here comes direct from distributors, and you are talking about buying in serious volume for them to even consider taking you on to supply.
You mention looking at wholesale, if you do have money to invest in stock, and I am not making any promises, but PM me with a broad outline of what you're really do want to cover initially, the sort of money you have to invest, and I'll see if I can point you in a half decent direction.
