    If I bulk order 50 portable chargers for less than $2 a piece do you think they will sell for $5 a piece at the flea market?

    Go to your local flea markets and see if anyone is selling them and for what price.

    Chances are if you can get them for 2.00, others can also, but turning them over at a flea market may be unique in your area.

    hard to tell, what country? what type of portable chargers?
    go to flea market and look at the prices maybe, also stick around a bit to try to figure out, if there's a demand at all

    arbitrage will never cease to work, you just need to find the good product at a good price

    edit: BTB beat me to it

    I would go snipe out what the local flea market sells, what doesn't sell, then start snooping around in your area for what stores sell, pricing, popularity, etc. Then watch cable TV to find out what ads for what products are being hammered right now. Chances are you have seen the Surface Pro 3 commercials being blasted by BestBuy if you live anywhere in the USA and watch TV.

    They have already done 80% of the work for you. All you would need to do is go over my Amazon Black Hat Method, setup right, be patient and wait 2 months for the "rebates", sell as cheaper than Amazon or BestBuy or WE WILL BUY YOUR SURFACE PRO 3 MODEL FOR YOU! You just got 80% of the buyers interested in your offer. You need to be caught up on pricing, but thats 2 phone searches away. In your offer you would be cheaper than Amazon's Official Microsoft new listing price on the item page, not the cheapest seller on the market. This way someone can't open up a new account to scam you out of products, and even if they did sell one lower than you, you'd buy it to just resell it anyway, so its more money for you than them.

    You are basically doing what BestBuy or Tigerdirect already do, but you are better than they are to your customers. Don't go do anything without research, analysis, and finally practice else you'll fail from a lack of knowledge. I tink people on here overcomplicate things to much, as in things like arbitrage are what the big name brand stores are doing, but yet they rather suck Amazon and Adsense "rock hard rooster" than have the balls to build something for themselves.

    I am in the USA, they are 2560mah portable usb chargers. I am wholesaling from China. I am in Georgia so I don't think there would be competition. Worst case scenario I can just sell them when school starts for $10 a piece easy.
