For example I watched this person auctioning Maui Jim breakwater sunglasses on ebay and sold it for $142 and the wholesale prices given on here are $226.That tells me that either that he bought them for $42 and made a $100 profit on it or he bought them for the wholesale price and lost his ### on them.
I'm looking to make a decent profit on there not to pay an extra $100 just so somebody can look good.
Well you have 2 factors. This person bought these items through liquidation. Which is for a percentage of wholesale, Not the actuall wholesale price. Or this person bought these items from china. Meaning they are fakes. He probably paid 20 bucks each pair.
Liquidation is the best way to make money on ebay. Hands down there is no better way. You can aquire expensive items dirt cheap buying through liquidations. But you have to reseasrch to make the maximum profits. If you really want to make money you need to consider buying truckloads of liquidated stock. Pay 20K to buy a whole trailer of merchandise with a wholesale value of $187,000.
Then flip it on ebay for half of its wholesale value and make $83,000 in pure profits. Many very successfull sellers are doing this and are generating a huge income in the process.
