You may not post much brad2819, but when you do you give pretty sound advice : )
I couldn't agree more, ebay is already set at wholesale value, making it almost impossible to compete with wholesale sourcing prices. Some members will tell you that they are making some cash from drop shipping, but most will fail.
Take a serious look at liquidated stock items, as well as consider secondhand.
They are two of the most cost effective ways of getting started in online sales.
Hmm my friends are in the same boat I am. Need to start out somewhere tho!
[b]Seeing alot of iphones wanted, not to mention unlocked cell phones by different companies ergo at&t and verizon and more. In pa here married with 2 kids. Whats your opinion of the hottest selling items? Found a pallet for 100 plus shipping on that guys liquidation site that you mentioned. [/b][/color]What's your location, and what sort of products are you most interested in sourcing?
I am new to this and running into the same problem most of you are. I think it is a load of crap that most of the wholesalers that they listed for us just happen to be powersellers. How the hell can we compete with the people we are buying from. Only thing I found that I can mark up was stress balls. Lol. I really don't see there being that much demand for them. You have a very good idea by getting together for a pallet shipment. Only problem is that you would be listing against each other. If we put our heads together I think we can work out something and become successful.
