    Most of you online yesterday and today.
    Probably notice the HP touchpad huge price cut.
    There are someone who's take 6000+ unit 16gb HP touchpad ($99 after price cut) and sale it on ebay for $119.
    Then it get sold out under a hour.

    6000 x $20 =120k

    Just wonder anyone here do the same. Buy low and sale high.

    Low margin and high conversion, it can be viable if your productive chain doesn't break.

    Gotta factor in fees. His profit was nowhere near that high.

    True that.
    Even half of $120k. $60k profit in a hour isn't that nice?

    That's not as bad as you think.
    I do sale things online.
    He could have make a deal with UPS or which every shipping company out there.
    Then drop then the product and list of address.

    I disbelieve this. More likely this is a hook for some kind of scam.

    I bought 4 of the last night. Plan on selling them on eBay and CL for a small profit. Wish I bought more now.
