Hi There,

Electronics is a vast category... Are you looking to specialize/carry niche products or move towards becoming an "all things electronics distributor"? Either case, we can support your end-Customer needs and drop shipping is free.

Will you be selling on the top platforms - e.g. Amazon, Sears.com, eBay, etc. as well as your own web site?

Check us out at Link hidden: Login to view and send any questions to Sales@EnRouteGlobal.com.

All the Best,

Vince and Marc Williams

Apple Garmin Sony etc. Almost all of the major electronics brands, you have very limited supplier options. Most of them boil down to dealing directly with the manufacturers, or dealing in liquidation merchandise.

Electronics is one of the most appealing markets for people new to this business, but it is so very hard to get a leg up in it. Margins even from the best suppliers are horrible, prices crash as technology changes, the stock is fragile, the dropshippers are all crap.

Best of luck, but in all honesty, you should find a niche that isn't choked with competition and incredibly hard to make even a nominal profit in, when you're starting out.

100% agree with fm1234.
make $20-50 profit on a item that cost $500 is not worth the effort IMO.

When you're sort of "free forming it" ie. trying to start at square one, I generally recommend that people start with the things that they themselves like. Obviously, I don't know what you like, and that may be something that doesn't sell at all - but look at yourself, at your own life, your own interests and passions, and see if you can work outwards from there. The rationale behind this is simply that it is generally difficult to get a serious business off the ground, especially if you are bootstrapping it on limited capital, and while trying to learn the bsiness as you go. So, start with something you like and that holds your interest - it will help keep you from getting discouraged by the learning curve. Plus, if it's something you are really into, you probably already know many of the best places to get whatever the products, accessories, books, etc. for that niche are at retail, so you have a better idea of how to "fan out" in search of wholesalers.

Of course, you might be really into electronics - a lot of people are, which is why it's such a popular niche. If you simply must go into that, be prepared to sell at, near or even slightly below cost, and make your money on upsells, repeat business, accessories, etc. Believe it or not, this is how the major retailers make money on electronics - many of them are selling the main items, the computers and BluRay players and game systems and other items that draw people into the store for virtually zero markup, and are relying on secondary sales to the same customers to make their margins.

Just to highlight the bottom part of Frank's post, it's the big reason why so many people think that sellers on eBay are getting better prices than everyone else, being able to sell so cheap and still make money.

The term is called "Loss Leader" in most circles, and it means to sell at cost or below to generate traffic, where by you then upsell on the product or make your margin on other products. Once established in business, it's a very common marketing strategy, however using it as a strategy when just starting out can see you go belly up quite quickly.

The trick to it is to already have a strong customer base and have the product profile that allows you to make margin in other areas effectively.

For those with their own website, loss leading on eBay is a great way to draw traffic to your own site. It's a very popular marketing strategy being used by many sellers, and just another reason why more and more people are finding it harder and harder to compete just using eBay as their only market.
