Ok. I have noticed many many post on many different forums in many different countries of people looking for Ipods and Cell Phones.
!!YOU WON'T MAKE ANY MONEY!! Well not entirely true but it will take a lot more work to make a little selling Ipods & Cellphones.
The thing is that EVERYONE is looking for Ipods and cellphones which means everyone is selling ipods and cellphones which means there is much much more competition which means prices go lower and lower and margins start to disappear very quickly.
So my question is why spend your time looking for ipod and cellphone deals when the market for that stuff (ipods more than cellphones) is extremely over saturated!
You can spend less time sourcing other products for other markets which have better margins and much higher sales rates. Your time is valuable so use it where you're going to get the most results.
Try this.... go on ebay and search for ipod or ipod accessories or whatever. Now look at the completed items. Anything green sold, red not sold. Now notice how many things sold and what the price was and compare that to your best ipod supplier.... I know you will notice that A. a lot more ipod things have not sold then sold. and B not much profit.
Now look at something like baby strollers. Look at completed items.... You should see a lot more green items there! Also look at the prices. High average selling price and higher sales rate. And when you figure the cost of say a jogging stroller would be around $50 - $60 and they sell on ebay for anywhere from $100 to $500 you can clearly see which market would be more profitable for you.
Find these niche markets and pounce on them!
