Hi, I'm new here, and after reading the forums I feel a little discouraged. I'm planning on selling on ebay....but I'm just curious now, is there anyone here that has succeeded with any of these wholesalers and dropshippers? I would really like to hear some success stories. thanks
If you have read through the forums you will find allot of useful information on products,Drop shipper and wholesalers. I understand that you may feel a bit overwhelmed by what you are reading but this is not the end of the line. Were teaching you a common truth about how online selling is.
You can buy countless list after countless list but unless you know how to really make money online those lists are worthless. Back in 2002 a Wholesale list was the greatest thing ever. But with 5 million people looking for the same thing and trying to sell the same thing those lists became pretty useless. Now the internet is rampant with scammers and thieves trying to take your money.It just makes things very hard for some and they give up.
Now to find good deals you have to search your heart out and hope that after a ton of research you can find a good supplier that has a few products you can make money on.
But many wholesale lists also have lists of Liquidators. Buying liquidations is the best way to acquire products cheap.
Every wonder where that item you got as a gift and didn't like, so you took it back and returned it for the money? It goes right to a liquidator. Ever wonder what retailers do with those display models?( eg cameras,vacuum cleaners,kitchen appliances, pots and pans or the clothes on a mannequin or even boxes that get dented but the item inside is perfect. )
They all get liquidated as they are considered unsellable to a retailer. These items get liquidated by the truckload to an authorized Broker then distributed to a liquidator. The prices are only a percentage of retail. Then sold by the pallet to a small buyer like yourselves. You then have a pallet of products you can resell on places like ebay for profits.
But dont just think of selling on ebay. There is way to many places you can sell your items and make profits. Ebay was the best place to sell items. It is not the best place anymore. Everything sells at its wholesale price there. Many items you can sell for much better if you used other methods.
