K it is kind of long so bear with me i kind of rambled a little btw this is my first post :D
i have a very small 10 to 20 items a month ebay business going on.
i have read several books, trolling forms and talking to several differnt ppl about haveing what i would call a mobile business.
now my business is entering the next phase where i could work smart instead of hard and not have a job imited by what other people want to pay me.
the problem i'm having is the margins on physical stuff I.E. ( selling pots, books, figures and other stuff) is way to low it would seem like it would strave the business instead of feed it?
i here $5 to $10 profit would mean that i would have to have at least 100 min to 1000 items a month sold on ebay or other autions sites to make it.
that is a lot of items that is (a 100 items would break down too 25 a week at $5 , a 1000 items would break down too 250 a week at $5)
now besides certain items (cars, jewels, and informational plus virtuial items)
sorry if i rambled a little
first Question is: is how do you live off of that
second Question which kinds of answer that first:
where can you find a good suppler who could supplie the above at a good price and not a retail price that i see so much.
i know i have more question just can not think of them now
exsample of the above would be:
retail lets say: $150
wholesale: 1-20 $150, 20-40 $145, 40-60 $140
i have seen numbers simler to this why?
