Hey guys I figured I would give back to the community. I have learned a lot here and want to share a method with you. I'm not sure if it has been shared here, but if it has this will cover more selling platforms than other posts. So basically what we are doing is flipping smartphones. We are buying low from Craigslist and then selling on a site called Swappa. Swappa is basically an online marketplace for high end smartphones. You are able to charge more here, since people trust it more than eBay and you also only have to pay a $10 fee if it sells. So here's what I do. Go on Craigslist and type in "iPhone". Make sure you set it to for sale by owner only. 99% of the time you are not going to buy it for the asking price. I don't take any deals unless I will make at least $50 on the flip. I like to text the seller and lowball the shit out of him at first. For example, I know the Verizon iPhone 5S is selling for about $400 if it is mint condition in Swappa. So I am going to start offering $250 for everyone with a Verizon 5S for sell. In case you didn't know Verizon iPhones are worth a lot more. They come factory unlocked so this really increases their value. I don't like to deal with Sprint or Cricket. Verizon and T Mobile are all I go with. Okay so back to the method. If I text about 50 guys telling them I will give them 250, one of them will probably tell me to f*** off, 30 will say no sorry price is firm, and the rest will work with you on the price. The key here is quantity, you want to reach out to everyone selling an iPhone that meets your criteria. I guarantee you if you start this today, you will find a phone with at least a $50-100 profit margin. So know that you have some responses you want to go back to their ad and really analyze it. Get pictures of the phone and ask them for the IMEI number. This is the number that is basically the serial number. A simple g00gle search for imei checker will come up with tons of results. If the phone is blacklisted, don't buy it. Alright, so know you probably have it narrowed down to a few people. Keep in mind there is probably at least 5-10 other people in your city doing this. The key is to act fast. If they offer you a great deal take it then and there. Offer to drive to them and tell them you will be there asap. You want to close the deal asap before someone else contacts them and offers them more. Once you meet up there is another thing you need to check. Back when Apple released ios7, they came out with a feature called activation lock. Basically it is to prevent stolen phones from being used again. If you reset a phone it will ask for the iCloud account and password. There really is no way around this if you don't have the owner type in the info. So when you are examining the phone make sure you go into the setting and make sure there is no iCloud account attached. Seriously, the phone is a brick if you don't get this removed by the owner. So after purchasing head over to Swappa. Take excellent pictures of the phone. Most of the guys on here are hipsters/techies who really know their shit. A lot of them are android developers and just tech savy people in general, and are willing to pay more because they know Swappa is trusted. So the key here is to take 5-10 pictures. Get a pictures of all the corners and the back as well. I like to list my product for about $10 less than anyone else selling one in the same condition. Yeah, $10 is $10, but the sooner you sell this one the quicker you can reinvest. They don't hold your phones like eBay does. The second it sells I transfer the PayPal funds straight to my bank account and start looking for some new products. You are also going to want to offer free shipping. It really does make a difference, trust me. TIP: Do a search on Craigslist for "iPhone buyer". Once you have the capitol you want to make one of these ads. Basically create an ad saying you "pay top dollar for any iPhone". Get a free VOIP number and you're ready to go. I usually get about 20-50 texts a day of this. This is where the real deals are to be honest. These people are just looking for quick cash and don't want to have to list them item. TIP 2: Make connections. I have a few local buyers as well. These guys bank hard. I have one buyer who buys about 20-30 a day and sends them to Europe and Africa where iPhones are about twice the price as the USA. Now you might ask why don't I just send them there. Well because it's near impossible to find an over seas buyer. But make friends with these guys and they'll hook you up. Obviously you won't get as much money as you would from Swappa, but it's good for quick flips. Well guys I hope you learned something from me. This is how I started making money online and it's pretty simple. I shared this method because I know only about 1% of you will actually use it and take action. It's hard work, but it's worth it. In my prime I was making at least $100 a day. Biggest day was $300. So get off the computer and start making some money!
