WOW, I have been at it another full day, just scaning through all the offered sites for discount products. I thought I had come upon a decent one offering 'as seen on tv' products. Then I read that they don't sell to ebayers or the like. So I jotted down their 'wholesale' prices and started to look up the 'exact' products on e bay. Guess what?! I found those very same products for at least 50 to a 75 percent LESS being sold right there on e bay. Am I STUPID or what. :shock: They don't sell to e bayers??? Yet there they are in bold print, the very same things I was checking out through wholesale! Where is the profit? I could buy it 50 to 75% less for my own peresonal use through them...but never resale. I would loose my shirt.
I'm still not giving up! I have spent over 60.00 so far just to get to this site to be able to be able to read all of your encouraging post to each other. There has got to be a good ole American way to make an extra buck to get ahead and just pay the bills. I'm not looking for over night success. Just some good common sense.
I'm still looking. :)

I started out looking to sell items on Ebay as well and learned fast that it is very easy to loose money there and very hard to make money on ebay. I turned to other channels to sell my products. Take a look at my site as an example. Link hidden: Login to viewThere are people making money selling these products on ebay and making money, but I have been able to make more by selling to other people including brick and mortar stores. Good luck and be creative.

BerkLLC,

Nice store, check out mine and you will probably smile. Why do you not offer jackets?

dhs08,
You need to keep plugging away. I spent a good 8 months just researching different sourcing venues and I must have spent at least 2 grand on different ebooks and 'secret sites'. I have found some success away from eBay with my own webstore. If you need some guidence please feel free to contact me directly and I will try and help as much as I can.

I am using Link hidden: Login to view to host my website. It is easy to use, but is not as customizable as I would like. I have thought about switching to Link hidden: Login to view.
