Welcome to the board. You are asking a pretty specific question. Not sure if anyone has the answer at their finger tips. I can give you a general answer though.
It certainly wouldn't be any electronic or computer related product.

Right now, if you could get a hold of Disney movies like Hannah Montana, WALLE Nemo or the like you would make some good money.

Hannah Montana the movie 15 to 20 buck 3$ shipping
WALLE 14.95
Nemo 8.95


Collectibles.
If you can source at a good price sometimes you can double or triple your investment.

ANd of course, Unique original items that will sell.

A hot item right now is the Crayola Crayon Maker. They are selling at Wal-Mart for $20 and selling on eBay right now for over $40! Another Hot item is Zhu Zhu Pets and accessories.

Hi fifisexylingerie,

Welcome to the site :)

I was able to locate only two UK based drop shippers for the products your specified. Unfortunate both do not have any reviews at the moment. But feel free to check them out:


Hope this helps.

Happy Holidays! :)

Hi guys.

What type of wholeseller products costing under $30 each, generally makes the most profit?


Any product that you don'y have to physically ship....those are the ones that can give you the highest margins. We are in the fashion business and our margins are quite decent, certainly not as low as the electronics business (are you guys making money selling electronics at all????)

Well it's not wholesale, but I've made Power Seller on two separate eBay accounts in the past with nothing but, Second Hand. Nothing specific, just general, although items that I knew there would be a market for.

I would work on a bare minimum of 100% margin, but getting 300% mark-ups was quite normal. The other huge advantage was the constantly changing stock profile which kept a constant flow of regulars, as well as the low outlay for stock.

If I spent 100 on a weekend, that would make me 2-400 during that week. If I spend 300 on a weekend, that would make me around 6-1,200 for the week, and I would struggle to keep stock numbers up.

Most people spend so much time looking for suppliers of products that they are going to make 5-10% on max, and they ignore items that they walk past everyday that could be generating plenty of cash!
