Thanx for the information about selling and the poor profit potential for new releases.
I am new to selling and still in the process of doing research and sourcing. I don't use eBay, as it for me at this time, is too expensive with the insertion fees, reserve fees and closing costs, Etc. Though I feel the closing and listing fees are fair.
I did order the Auction Inspector and have been using that to get a general feel for the market place as a whole, being that eBay is the mother of all auction sites, and a model for others as well.
I want three products or product areas that will do well. It seems gaming is on top the #1, electronics is close to it, home accessories/furniture does pretty well, but am remiss in finding the formula for all three that work for me. That's why I thought the CD etc, area might work.
I will continue my research and am just about ready to list some gaming and electronic products soon. But would really like to get a much better price margin than I currently have.
I have contacted the Chinese companies I recieved in a link from Salehoo, but they have not responded yet to my emails. I suspect I will need to find an international calling plan, put it into place and give them a ring. As this might be important to do anyway, were a situation arise that I need to contact them. I need to really get some basic info from them like the return policy they might offer, should I run up against a situation like that. I feel I need this information before I start to list.
Any information you have would be appreciated.
