    I've found some good and cheap retail stores near my area.. I could buy and resell items (flipping) for nice profit.. I remember there are people on the internet that are using tactics like dropshipping ways but in different way.. for example I remember a guy who sold a pair of shoes on ebay without buying them first..
    He found the shoes in the retail store and then listed on ebay, then when he got a client he bought the shoes at the store and shipped them to the client. I'd do a similiar thing but on Craiglist, problem is people don't pay with paypal just with cash.. any tips for using this "dropshipping" tip? Thank you!

    I thought about a good way to not lose money.. I can find on ebay/amazon sellers with cheap items good to resell, which offer a return policy so I can stay safe that in case I'll resell the item on craiglist and if the client doesn't want anymore the item, I can ask to the original ebay/amazon seller a return of money without losing my spent cash on item and give back seller the item and get my money back.. I think this should work!

    If I were you I'd use those nearby retails. Buy in bulk and ship to Amazon FBA. Dont use egay, they will probably file you an MC999 (was it like that?) and will ban you. When you call egay's support to reinstate your account, you will talk to some 3d tier country faggots that cant talk proper english. Also dropshipping in egay is possible but they don't tolerate it (egay logic).

    So you're saying best thing is to buy in bulk from cheap retail store and resell them on craiglist for more profit? what about the warranty? If I client ask me the warranty for example of a smarthone.. I can't give to the client because on the warranty there is the original price wrote.. the client could get angry if he sees the original price and I sold him the item for more money.

    Dont go with this kind of products. Start with products like kitchen supplies, home imporvements, little electronics, ipad/iphone/etc cases protectors. You will have much more sales and way less problems. Also its not very easy to start selling cell phones and laptops with a fresh account on Amazon. Craigslist - I do not have any experience with it, but I heard conv. rate is higher but you will have to glue your phone to your head.

    Its that easy!

    Thanks for tips dude, but in case I'll sell an eletronic item and the client ask me for warranty where there is the original price, how can I pass this?

    im a getting into this 'flipping biz' as well
    i would buy something from alibaba and then sell in on ebay
    only problem is the risk involved ordering bulk stuff from overseas, alibaba is a risk itself anyway
    there are no cheap retail stores near my area, so i see no possibilities in dropshipping

    You need to find some chinese wholesaler who has a second warehouse in the UK, or USA, you can still buy in bulk (cost more money) but the shipping is faster than a China warehouse.
