    Hello.

    I recently signed up to my local cash & carry (Bookers, UK). They asked me for proof of business address, ID (passport or driving license) and an invoice of some sort.

    So I fetched my ID, took a utility bill (for proof of address) and said I worked from home, Then made up a fake invoice to with my "company" name on it (same address as utility bill). Went down as was instantly accepted!

    My intentions were really cheap energy juice and sweets. But found out they do cheap items such as Chefs clothing, hendry the hoover, electric cigarettes etc all at profitable prices. Thinks like takeaway boxes etc could have a market. Another bonus is you can buy drink and smokes too without any license.

    They have an online catalog too if you want to have a look. Sorry if this is no use to you but I may give it a bash too. also £1.60 for 2.5kg of baked beans is a great deal! haha

    Wait what? I'm confuse. So you are saying you got credit on a store and you are planning to do what?

    Is a cash and carry like a credit supermarket? I'm still confuse. I'm reading this wrong? Is this about how to get credit on a store and take as much as you want without paying?

    Nice! Now it's time to hit up amazon and list some of those food goods for sale at ridiculous prices. :) Especially to expats!

    Ok, now I understand so you get credit to buy in bulk and sell on retail. Gratx!!! Time to get some SSL, nice pics and get some shipping modules ready.

    Wouldn't say credit, it's just like the title, Cash & carry. But you only get the privilege if you are a shop keeper etc.

    I'd say Veg oil if you can get it cheap enough in huge bulk would be a money spinner. Sell it on with a profit on biofuel forums, or even run your own car on it if you have an old oil burner like me. Veg oil was once much cheaper per liter than diesel until stores started selling out and the government caught on. Now I think the only place you can pick it up cheap is at the likes of Cash & Carry.
