Default Competitor's atack

I've found very good niche im about to invest, but im afraid of competitor action because he is only dominating in that niche.

I will have fresh legit non stealth acc with ~5 positive fb.

Products are pure goldmine , that guy sold for 20 k usd last month and his profit margins are very high.

He will definitely see that im new and im setting lower prices than he does therefore i will definitely grab his customers.. In his pants i would just do few neg fb and my acc would be closed.

Any thoughts?

If he is dominating....then perhaps you aren't ready?

Perhaps rsot.. perhaps..
He is dominating because he has the lowest price which is at least 30% of the profit margin.

Did you say you will leave him a few negative ratings? I honesty think you will probably get away with it if you do it properly. But its such a childish thing to do, I would hate it if my competitors did it to me. Please dont do it.

if you want to enter the market then why not do it the right way. Instead of undercutting EVERYONE'S profits, why don't you price it the same and work your way up through better customer service, better listings etc.
It's crazy how people ask to be targeted for low-balling everyone else and then come back crying that completion went crazy and allocated all of their resources to take your accounts down.
Let me answer it for you, because you asked for it when you started the price war.

As a new account, you are vulnerable. You need to make the account strong before you try something like this.
