Default A very good wholesaler/factory direct for you all! Shocking info!!!! :)

Believe it or not. The supplier is... are you all ready? Ebay.

I just got back from Paris today! An item I wanted to get from China was being sold in Stores in Paris for 20 euros, meaning $27.20 USD/CAD. These items are found on ebay and they are plastic items for $1.39 with S&H from China/Hong Kong and at times USA sellers out of the states! With FREE S&H guys!

Most of you are looking to resell on ebay! What you guys don't know is that ebay is really dirt cheap, and business men who have bigger wallets then you would ever think!

Here's my story for you all!

That's right! In 2000 I registered my Inc. in the states to register with companies to get products at whole sale prices and with factories also! I use to sell Neon Under body kit by street glow. It's those nice lights you have under the car like fast and the furious! Retail price $300, retail meaning in stores! My price $137 total! Ebay price? $133 with free S&H! I was pissed off to spend $700 on my Inc. business to get this stuff for $137 when people were selling it cheaper then what I was buying it at with FREE S&H!

Most of you don't know is that ebay is way cheaper then stores, there are countless items you can get off ebay to put in the papers or open up a store front to resell! I won't tell you what items, but there are tons! Research is the key is also.

Don't go trying to sell laptops worth $1,000 and you need to invest $10,000+ just to get in the door with a factory/wholesaler that builds these, you'll never get it! If you do and end up selling it online, some buyer will rip you off and there goes $1,000, and the rest of the money you invested will be to make up for that lost item! Sell items worth $20 that cost you a few dollars!

You will find more people in this world who have $20 to spend, then someone who has $1,000 to spend. You ever see those houses on TV, and online for $25 million dollars, and no one buying it? There are maybe 4,500 people in the world who could buy a house like that! So don't limit your self with high end goods!

Like I said, today in Paris when I seen this guy selling this items for over $25+ in his story/20 euros, I was thinking FML! Because back in the day in the USA I use to tell everyone what to buy off ebay to resell in the papers! It works well! You don't need a business license! You get cash for it! Until you find what to sell some day! If you guys want to sell laptops, and high end products that are name brand, then please save up $50,000 open up a real store front, don't deal with rip off buyers on ebay, who will scam you. Sell in a real store, contact real wholesalers, contact the company that you want to sell the products and say "Hi my name is *insert your name here* I just opened up a business, and I would like to sell your products in my store, at a real location, could I please have some information on selling your products if I may?" Most will tell you that you need to be big, or spend $20,000 a month to keep on buying, or give you a regional supplier that deals with someone like you! It's very doable guys!

Would you rather sell 50 laptops a year and only make 10% with high risk? Or sell plastic items that are worthless to buy and make 1700% margin profit? With lower risk? Besides, laptops within 2 months drop in price value if you do not sell it. So you lose out on the money! Plastic items, pft okay so you didn't sell it for $25 so make it $19.99 on sale! BIG DEAL! Still a winner! Buy 2 get 3rd one FREE always WORKS!

Well hope this helps, I know most of you just want to sit at home, make money from home! But does it really matter how you get that first million?

Have a nice day everyone!

P.S. Laptops I want are a lot cheaper on ebay then sony's website! :O

The reason the stuff is selling for so much in Paris, is well, because it's Paris. Any popular tourist area is the same, Italy, etc.

I asked a friend in the states out of Detroit, same crap $12.99 to $24.99+ and his cousin owns a store who sales those items and he called him up! These are very HOT items!

And this was 20 minutes outside of central Paris! Not where a tourist would be hanging out at!

And about 5 out of every 10 people buy this or 7 out of every 10 I would say. This store had 70% or 90% of it's products just with that! I remember seeing this up in the states when I grew up, I hardly paid attention to that at the time. But now I do!

Stay away from tourist traps - they will scalp you there. Even in place like New York. You can buy item in Walmart in Brooklyn or pay 3 times more on Fifth Ave. These guys have to pay the rent for prime locations.

But lets say you want to sell laptop or any consumer electronics for that matter. $50K to open a store you will go out of business in a month. You can never buy at the same wholesale price as the big guys who buys in hundread thousand units for national ditribution. You cannot compete. In fact you will find the product cheaper on Amazon than from your distributor. And last I heard BestBuy was shutting hundreds of stores.... soon will be like Circuit City and Crazy Eddie before them.

I do agree on one point. My father always told me the best items to sell was hardware. His point was hardware doesnt have a limited shelf life and doesnt go out of style like clothes. So you dont lose on inventory.

DUDE IT is not a tourist TRAP!!! It's something a lot of you buy, it's an accessory!

I'll message you what the item is so you don't think i'ts tourist trap! And I don't think you read my last post saying it's out side of the city by 20 minutes. And it's all over the world! Not for tourist at all.

Mostly in Malls I see ⊗⊗⊗⊗ sunglasses and t-shirts with messages. And of course always the perfumes. Usually the stuff that womens like to waste money on.
