    Hey,

    I have been thinking about this.. to make some little extra cash.

    What do you guys think about checking some nice listings on ebay for a real cheap price. And then set up a listing for that product with a higher price (so you can earn profit) and then when someone buys and pays the money, that you will use that money to purchase the product from the cheaper listing of the same product and make it ship to them directly or just make it ship to yourself and then send it to your clients?

    Thanks,
    Sedoc94

    You can probably find items cheaper on Craigslist. If you use Craigzoom, it'll be easier to locate products around the country.

    I don't know, the margin will probably disappear once ebay and paypal fees are factored in.

    Oh my, look at the greenhorn.. A friendly hint - look around before you post a thread like this. What you suggest is dropshipping, albeit a rather unreliable form of it.
