What isn't easy to start with is buying in large volume. Filling a container and shipping it from overseas can become an expensive experience. ($10,000 - $20,000 all up - shipping alone is @$4,500 from China)
But if several of us got together and filled the container (splitting shipping costs) Wow! This would work!!!
I'm interested Aussie and it looks like I found a gold mine. But I want to play it safe. The supplier is in China.
Thanks for your interest. Name a product you are interested in, I will open a forum for that product, we will see how many numbers we can get, then I shall contact the manufacturer direct and we can go from there.
I would be interesed in doing this as long product has a large demand, long life span and the profit margin is attractive.
As you would all be experiencing the same thing and that is to get a great price on anything to be able to make a decent profit on ebay or websites you need to buy items in bulk with pretty high minimum order quantities. :idea:
My suggestion is we make an alliance and all those interested and willing to commit and put their money where their mouth is and we place a large order with Sony for example for the upcoming release of Playstation 3, or any other products we want to combine in and we all then reap the rewards. We can all sell on ebay and make some good money instead of wasting our time trying to find suppliers with small moq. The idea is not limited obviously to Sony it can be anything that a group of us is into or would like to sell, eg: Billabong, Osh Kosh, Nintendo, etc.
There are enough people in Australia wanting to buy off us all so it is not a matter of underselling each other as we would all have to agree on a minimum sale price, you can sell it for whatever you want thereafter.
Let me know your thoughts. Looking forward to hearing from you all!
