    I've been lurking on this forum for a while and I gotta say "Amazing"!!! There is so much great info here and everyone shares openly. For my first post I am going to share how I was making around $10k per month off ebay (around 6-7k net). Salvia Divinorum. Some of you have probably heard of it others maybe not. Google it and see what it is all about if you don't already know. It is cheap to get into with low minimums for wholesale pricing. The only downfall is you will have to pack and ship products which can be a headache. You can buy a kilogram of Dried leaf salvia from mjb botanicals for $95 ($2.71 per oz). The resale for an ounce is $9.50+. On alienthings you can get 1g of 10x wholesale for $2.75 and resell for $10.00. As you can see there is a pretty good markup + I would charge a flat rate shipping of $3.50 and most products would cost .45 to ship. I would still be selling if it wasn't outlawed where I live. Hope this info is helpful to someone.

    My replica supplier is http://www.watch321.com the contacts name is Gary- email: sale@watch321.com. They are a good supplier and have an extensive inventory. They also ship direct to the customer although shipping costs more that way.

    Obviously you're not selling it now. Where in the world do you live? I know what the substance is and what it does, and I thought the US govt was trying to ban it everywhere.

    Also, why are you not selling watches anymore? :twitch:

    I live in the US (KS). Alot of states are starting to ban Salvia but there are still many states where it is legal. I'm don't sell watches anymore just because I'm tired of selling products in general. I'm tired of customer emails, shipping, packaging,..etc.

    I'm not sure if it is legal in Asia or not. You would need to check your local laws.

    They go around the pubs in Vietnam as they pass they tap on their push bikes or have special sounding things and this means do you want to buy any Opium.
    I am sure this will be OK in Vietnam at least.

    In fact it gets pretty annoying as many people pass you asking you every five freakin minutes and they just stay around like some bad hickie.

    Extracting is very easy but time consuming and messy. You can google it to find out how. You can easily add another 2x your markup if you go that route. Just some questions I have been getting:

    How much did I sell to make that much$$?
    I was selling 5+ kilograms dried leaf, + 10x extracts & 20x extracts.

    Is ebay going to Ban Salvia Sales?
    They have tried but never succeeded. They cancelled a couple of my auctions but they were reinstated and I never had another problem. I would recommend getting a website and selling on there as well. A simple PPC campaign will bring in just as many sales.

    Legally can I get into trouble selling Salvia?
    That depends. If it is illegal where you live and you try to sell it you probably will get into trouble. If you ship it where it is illegal you will probably get into trouble. Let's face it, it's risky but the rewards are high.

    My recommendation to anyone is simple. Start small. Spend $95 buy a kilogram of dried leaf and sell it in 1oz packages. Take the profits and expand your inventory to include extracts.

    It's really easy money but it will be short lived most likely. They will eventually outlaw it but until then just take advantage. I would be if I could. Everytime a newcast on tv mentioned Salvia or Salvia Ban orders for that day would easily double if not triple, it's free advertising.

    Were you selling the watches on eBay also? What kind of prices were you paying and what was the markup?

    I have a few questions on this topic too.

    How many watches did you sell per month?

    What price did you buy for and what did you sell for?

    Did you state as replica or sell as genuine item?

    What feedback did you recieve?

    Cheers

    No, I didn't sell the watches on ebay. They don't allow replica sales. If you are going to sell replicas I would clearly state that they are replicas. Do not try to pass them off as the real thing. You can get an excellent quality "swiss" movement replica wholesale for $180, resell can be over $1000. Google replica watches and just see what people are selling them for. It's pretty easy to sell 3 per day with a PPC campaign.

    Hey!! I have another idea, very similar to the Salvia Divinorum one. I am a regular buyer of something called Kratom. I do not know where this is banned at this point, but it is addictive, and for me it's much like... Opiates! I love the stuff, you can get it wholesale pretty affordably, and then soak us addicts for profit.

    It is actually very affective for opiate withdrawl, sells like crazy, and very pleasant to use. :)

    By the way, the reason I mention this.. Is I wouldn't mind the sellers having some competition. Maybe then those like me can get a deal. lol

    What better to sell, than something that is addictive? If your product is good, your customers will come back again and again.

    WHAT you should do Newboy is to advertise the watches as fashion watches on Ebay. They cannot do anything about that! As i stated I cn supply an immense array of fantastic desigs at amazing prices compared to online relica sites not to mention the same for handbags Oh man.
