Some people here suggest starting out selling DVD's. There are so many websites with many different prices, quantites, and selections.

Would anyone mind offering some advice on whom to buy from, what are good prices, and where are the best places to sell.

This one looks like it has good prices, but they say they use drop shippers. Doesn't that make them just a middle man?

The prices on Ebay are extremely low. I was thinking about selling on Amazon.

Would appreciate any help.

Have you sold on Amazon before? I really haven't tried it but it does look like some stuff sells for more on amazon. Is it true that you don't get ANY fees until your item sells? Just wondering cause that sounds good.

I've made serveral purchases on Amazon, but I've never sold anything there. I am selling a few of my personal ps2 games on ebay and decided to list one of them on Amazon just to see how it worked out.

There are no fees until the item sells and most items do seem to be listed at higher prices than ebay. They give you 30 days (with free account) and if item doesn't sell you can relist it.

The prices may be higher but so are the fees once the item sells. They charge a .99 cent transaction fee, $1.20 listing fee plus somewhere between 5% and 15% of total sale depending on the item (%15 for video games).

Shipping charges are pre-set. This could be good or bad depending on the item. I don't think it will cost $3.49 to ship a video game via media mail.

I guess volume of sales and profit just depend on the item/product just like anywhere else...except ebay. Of coarse, a zero feedback isn't going to help.
