Default How does this guy do it?

I've found this guy on eBay, and i'm dying to know how he's able to get all these consoles like this and still make a profit? I'd love to know how he does it. Any of you have any ideas?

He buys them in bulk for a deal and sells them, send him a message and ask him if you want to know lol no one on here is going to know where he gets his product or tell you if they do.

He's selling them above retail price.

He has a hookup with a retailer, Gamestop, Wal-mart, somebody he knows works there.

They call him ahead of time when a shippment of Switches come in, he goes and picks them up before anyone else can.

Then he sells them marked up on eBay. (His price is over 60 bucks on MSRP)

Not a complex system, it's called Scalping, and people do it all the time for all sorts of products....

I agree with GhostofAmazon, this is basic scalping procedure.

Just imagine working at a small store and being a manager......nope, sorry we never got that order today :(.......

If they are paying retail they are not making that much, unless they are drop shipping. Most states you pay taxes, then shipping, etc..not much besides credit card rewards which might be worth it for some....i mean he sold 450, x299 retail price x how many miles? He has a round trip flight to mars........!!!!

since this is one account, hes getting reported by paypal, thats going to be a pretty big loss he is going to have to make up if he doesnt want to pay taxes...

unless im not seeing this right???
