    I'm getting tired of affiliate marketing and would really like to start buying wholesale lots and selling them via an e-commerce store, ebay and amazon.

    Do any of you make a decent living this way, and if so do you have any tips on where to buy these wholesale lots?

    there are plenty of lines out there, you must choose your wholesaler well to ensure a good long term relationship.

    I have a couple that have turned out well over the years and they always look after me.
    many wholesalers will now not take pp purely because of all thehassles, however if you build up a good enough relationship that should not matter. go for products you like as they will be easier to sell. ecommerce will be the highest margin but harder to get traffic , ebay has planty of traffic but high potential headaches too .

    good luck if you want any insights just let me know

    look at high volume lines with at least 40% margin,

    Thanks for the info guys. Luckily I'm doing very very well with affiliate marketing at the moment, so investing a good bit which a whole seller won't be much of a problem. I'm thinking about going with either hunting or fishing products as this is my true passion.

    you should certainly find great products in china for hunting and fishing, look around at some of the specialist wholesale forums there are plenty of diamonds around

    Yeah, I've actually spoken to you about wholesale in the past. However, it's hard for me to trust someone off of black hat world unless I have people that you have dealt with personally to ask about their experiences.

    Always ask for a sample order and pay through paypal. If you can do volume with them, they should have no problem entertaining you at the beginning. But generally they do favour direct bank transfers

    I encourage everyone that buys from us to leave feedback and hopefully someone from here soon will. This is also why we have started offering sample orders so buyers can feel safe with their first purchase. We have samples under $100 and can be paid with all major credit cards.
