There's also aliexpress and alibaba which are very similar to dhgate.

But really, it is your own responsibility and task to find suppliers and popular selling goods.

If someone has a good/reliable seller there is no way in hell they are going to tell you. I have many good suppliers and you couldnt pay me anything to give them to you. Here is what I can tell you...

-The longer you stay with a supplier, they lower and lower your price will get. You may pay $10 for an item at the start, but the more you stay with them and order, you can easily see the price drop to $2.

-NEVER DROP SHIP. This is an excellent plan if you want your ebay account to last a couple weeks. People want to buy their items and have them shipped immediately. You have no idea if the item you are listing will be the exact item they receive. Drop shipping will also take several weeks to arrive, compared to several days when you have them in hand. And lastly, when one person complains, there will be a countless number of others.

-Never sell VeRO. You will last about a day or two on ebay, and worse you will receive a letter from a company trying to sue you.

With this thread you are basically asking......"Hey, I want to compete with selling the same stuff as you. Where do you buy from, so I can do that?"
- - - Not Going To Happen - - -

It is going to have to be a trial and error type of thing to become a great seller, buying from chachachina

Probably best to just get creative and think of something on your own. I would not trust any advice on here from anyone with supplier info. Would you throw details out there if you had a money maker??

If you dig into the internet deep enough you can find anything you want. You can even find your competitors supplier info as well as what they bought when they bought it. Its kinda funny what the supplier websites post online. If you know how to dig you can find anything on them.

I even found shipping records some of my competitors. I know for a fact they have no idea that they are published as they are.

I sell just to make a bit of pocket money.

If I need some extra cash, I pop along to my local stores, look in the reduced section, grab a bargain and sell it on the bay.

Its not biggest money earner but its always double your money, safe and legit.

Use Terapeak and do some research to find out what items are hot.

DONT Sell Vero and buy from Dhgate or Aliexpress if you want huge returns but dont sell too much in too little time.

No one in my family but my wife and parents even know what I sell.

You tell a relative and the next thing you know you got a laid off cousin whining about not having any money. They you got a competitor. No thanks.

Exactly. Its one thing to tell someone how to do something or give them a little secret to help them out. But its another thing to tell them what you sell and how you get it. Competition is too rough out there now days.

Check this one out. Not sure if I have posted this in teh past but if so then here goes again.

I told my folks what I sell and seems onetime on break at Dads work he told some lady that brought up ebay that I sold stuff. They talked for a while and I get a phone call from the lady asking me to come over and show her how to use ebay.

I wanted to be nice since it was my dads friend at work so I went. spent 3 hrs showing her how to get setup and got her listing some figurines etc. small talk lead to a little about what I sell but didnt disclose anthing to damaging to me.

months went by with her emailing me for advice here and there. I always looked at her stuff to see what she was selling but one day noticed she was using my photos, my personal written text and selling exactly what I was selling. Pissed me off so bad, I turned her in which did nothing, I called her and went off on her. I called my dad and he said he just was telling her about ebay since he was proud of me for making good money on there.

She eventually stopped but just dont trust ANYONE, in my case my own dad said something small that hurt my sales. Not really but still pissed me off a bunch.

Anyway, just be carefull who you tell and if its your folks, always remind them that they cannot tell anyone.

It's really shi.tty King. I know what you mean. I've been there already, but will never go as far to help someone with their business.

I've got an even bigger problem with a business partner of mine. Been a friend of mine for a long time, but I've made so much money for the both of us that now I can tell he is trying to figure out how to rid me out of the equation. Luckily, I have majority power and will end it accordingly when the time comes. Just sucks to help people and then have to cover your ass before they try and f*ck you.

I am sorry to hear that.You are a good teacher but you can not teach all knowlege to your students.I think you can just teach her the main procedures and then let her study it herself .But it is a good lesson

A famous proverb:

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Sadly this phrase will kill you for business.

Not if you kill the man first. And then get all of his EB/PP account information.

Haha, sometimes I am this angry. Ahhh
