hello kkelan, im bit of a noob myself though i've been on salehoo for awhile, i noticed nobody has replied to your posts, maybe you could give some ideas as to what ur looking for, do you have any idea what kind of products you want to sell? how much are you looking to invest? are you located in the u.s.?
have a read through the forums as well, you'll find a wealth of knowledge there from experienced sellers
is ebay the best site to sell on? traffic/sales wise, unfortunately yes. but there fees can really take a big chunk out of any potential profit.
welcome to salehoo, have a look through the forums, and im sure some 1 with more experience will get back to you soon
