Hi 7963, I've had an email shop for years and have power seller status, I started off selling vintage bike parts, so I never needed a VAT registration, just had a bookeeper do my accounts at the end of the year. I am too know looking at doing reseller on ebay, and it is alot harder than you think.....I have to be honest Salehoo your site is not great for people like ourselves, 80 per cent of your listed suppliers will not deal with me.... I've had replies from some companies, who in effect really selling Network Marketing sites - If this had been what I was interested in then there would of been no need to pay yourselves - Network Marketing shops are the latest craze, they sell it as drop shipping in a round about way, but it requires you to spam your facebook, Twitter and write blogs.
I found a supplier off here from the USA Luminence, who have completely ripped me off on shipping, this I know because, I deal with a company in the states already and they charge me a fraction of the price on a 5 day delivery... I also found the product on Alibaba for 38 pence per piece and charging me half the price of delivery on a 7 day timescale.. So so far Salehoo I have to be honest for the smaller start up reseller, your not really providing much of a service in listing suppliers who will deal with Newbies and any that will can really be found on Alibaba, and as long as you use their trade assure payment, your safe.
Prove me wrong please tell me where I am going wrong, I am always open to listening to advice, take my hand and guide us to suppliers who will deal with us, who have products that are not already spammed across every ebay search...
Also why do you not provide a forum for members to share experiences !!!
