Go and have a look at the website Link hidden: Login to view
There is a note there that says (quote) We do Not ship Large Orders Into Canada.
I suggest you also email Jimmy if you want further info about shipping to canada. You can contact him through the website. Cheers

Hi, right now we do not ship large orders into Canada. Canada has strictly increased laws on how products are reported prior to shipment. The requirements are too time consuming for us to be able to manifest pallets. We ship about 20 pack orders into Canada each week. It takes us about 15 min to build a single pack order Add 15 more min just to manifest that single pack.

Pallets can contain as much as 70-300 items and would heavily increase preparation time. Maybe one day when we have a larger workforce we will start doing pallets and truckloads into Canada.

Hi Jimmy that's cool. But why don't you ship any of the other packs?

How do we ensure a profit on these packs, is it because each one is unique and will have different items in them, so it won't clash with so many other items on ebay?

Sorry for the simple question, I'm new to this. ;)

Given that I'm in canada and would most likely have to ship to the USA most of the time, would it be more profitable, in your opinion, to operate a business based on profit packs, or to sell something lightweight such as jewelry?

Thanks!!

Your profit depends on how you sell your items and your ability to sell them. As far as clashing , The majority of our items are mixed and assorted. So you wont find many items that are exactly the same. Also many of our buyers sell to family freinds, on craigslist and other venues. We dont recommend our sellers to sell items on ebay as much as we used to because places like amazon are kicking Ebays Butt as far as profit potential.

Ebay is a bargain basement. Yes you can still make money on ebay but we do recommend you try to sell items in other methods because your profits potential is much higher.

Lets say you sold a item on ebay with auction format. If you sold that same items on Amazon or through your local paper you get to choose how much the item sells for. On ebay you are at the bidders mercy.

Remember 70% of the worlds internet users are still afraid to shop online. You stll have a huge market offline. And on very secure websites with 100% guarantees like Amazon.

Cool - thanks for your reply jimmy, your knowledge is a rather welcome perk to this salehoo membership thing!

You mentioned that the greater the size of the order, the greater the value will be - does this apply to double packs as opposed to single packs as well, or is that just for pallets?
