That's why I already asked for a refund. I am thinking of moving to wwbrands.com.

Before you run off to worldwide brands pay thier really high fee just to find arts and craft suppliers , Ma and Pa Shops and junk elecrtonic items that you find in a dollar store. Read my guide :D

aliaskar,

I must say, no matter where you get your stock, someone will be able to get it cheaper than you - and they will sell on ebay - thats a fact!

I know, as I have sold many electronic items on ebay and stopped because the margin was sooooo small.

The other thing is, I dont think you will get the support from the forum members like you do here.

I dont think it is fair to say someone will always beat your price.

Depends on the item.

Certain items are very hard to make a profit on. Such as Ipods, as there are the ipod freebie sites.

Or Blueray DVDs as many are selling them off from their DVD player purchases and then selling the Blueray machines.

Or memory, as many are getting them real cheap from the rebates being offered and then selling the memory for 50 bucks for 2gig pc6400.

You have to build/find a relationship with a wholesale supplier.

And no one will tell you the real good ones as they keep them for themselves.

Most likely the ones selling the CPUs real cheap, work for the REAL wholesaler and is getting them as a perk at the lowest mark down.

And some people are involved in criminal activity
and stealing the items for re-sale. This happens a lot more than people think. What more anonymous
place to do this then on eBay.

You also have the Staples and BestBuy employees grabbing up the below wholesale clearouts at a quarter on the dollar. I know for a fact this happens.

And then you have the high tech employees that get a high ticket item as a promo piece and selling it off on eBay.

And then you have liquidators like Jimmy.

You have to find a steady supply and dont try to beat every price as there are fluctuations in product availability. Get steady suppliers max out your store. They will come.

Switching to WWBrand, for you info, I am unable to find product to sell there, that's why subscribe to SaleHoo. WWBrand don't ever replied to me when I am asking supplier for my item. Not worth of value

:oops:

Hi aliaskar, Two important things that you should know:

1st. Ebay is a 'BELOW WHOLESALE' market. you will have a hard time competing if you try to get your goods a wholesale prices...

You should be looking to buy your items from liquidation and surplus and close out sites and vendors. This way you will be paying way below wholesale prices and will not only be able to compete on ebay with the other sellers, but also be able to make a profit..

2nd..WorldWideBrands, or OneSource as it is also known is not going to do anything for you but lighten your pocket book a little bit...I have a life time membership that I purchased way back when they first started and it was only about 29 or so dollars back then and not worth the money then and certainly not worth the money they ask now...Unless you are looking to sell at flea markets and then you might be alright with WWB.

Start looking at sights like liquidations.com and surplus.net and start buying closeout goods, liquidated stocks and surplus goods..these are items that you will get for pennies on the dollar and then turn around and sell them for a good profit on ebay or other auction venues..

Also don't get hung up trying to sell all the 'hot' items you see the big sellers selling on ebay. They are buying huge quanities and selling in large quantity at low markup..Try and stick to the everyday items...you don't have to sell a ton of those to make money...

I agree with negative comments about WW Brands. I have purchased membership and missed possibility to ask for my money back. Searches are unrelated, no one is responding to your emails, suppliers I tried were all bad, or would ignore me. And yes mom and pop kind.

They are selling to people like me who are trusting someone who is ebay educator and radio host-whatever.

Very disappointed.

I find that last bit interesting as I think this will be my strategy. You are correct in there is always going to be somebody with a lower price then you, but if you can make a decent profit and remain competitive I think this will work as there will eventually be a buyer. Now you mention 'max out your store', how many items would it take to max out your store?
