Hi everyone,

I recently began working with petra.com and I noticed their prices are mostly above what one finds on eBay and Amazon. Has anyone had any success working with them?

Hi Ev and welcome to the forum,

I can't respond to your exact question, as I have no personal experience with this supplier. However, perhaps the link to the post below may help to clarify the situation you are currently finding.

Just to carify, the site prices are dropshipping prices only, not wholeale. As with all wholesalers, the prices are based on the volume you purchase in. So if you want to purchase wholesale, you will need to speak to them about a volume purchase and they will then price according to that volume.

Some of their items are priced below amazon/ebay pricing, but they're less popular items. The trick really is bundling.
Thanks for the info.

Hi Ev,

Yes, bundling does work for many sellers. The trick to effective bundling is really matching your products to each bundle, that is items that really compliment each other very well.

Cheers
