    As a programmer, I'm always asked about my Amazon/Ebay software, which is a very competitive market as so many people are starting to do it, so I'm always curious why people want to drop thousands of dollars to go into a market that is literally racing to the bottom, closer and closer to $0 margins, as more people start to automate the process. I am shocked at the amount of people who are not doing US/Canada dropshipping instead. There is so much opportunity on the table, and no one is going for it.

    Let me see if I can shoot you an example.

    https://www.vineyardvines.com/mens-...sucker-check-breaker-shorts/889504130419.html

    Vineyard Vines is only available to ship to a US address. Therefore there are a handful of Canadians like me on Ebay.ca and the like, trying to find some for sale.

    Their email address regularly knocks their prices on shorts from $85 down to $29.99. The sales are where you'd make your money. Shipping is free when you buy a few pairs at a time.

    Why am I saying this? Cuz I am sick of not being able to buy so many clothing brands in Canada and having to ship it to a US address when I'm on holidays in the US.

    Another company that doesn't ship to Canada is Ralph Lauren. However, there are a few distributors that we can purchase from, I think.

    This is just another example of the opportunity you have living in the US.

    Would you be interested in a JV opportunity/idea to do this? I am from the U.S., Ohio to be exact and would be interested in this idea but would have to talk to and meet this person personally before going forward with it.

    PM me. I'm not particularly looking for anything, but rather just sharing what I know is in demand. Lets talk.

    If someone wanted to expand further than ebay and build a full business, take a look at the keyword "vineyard vines canada" on Google.ca , for example.
