    Hey, I recently got interested in this type of bussnies that this section of the forum is releated to. I were thinking to get started by ordering a couple of cheap stuffs from chinese online sites with free shipping and then sell them for a couple of bucks more. Is that basicly it, is there no catch? This almost sounds to good to be true in my ears..
    The site i were looking at were http://www.focalprice.com

    It's not that easy.

    You're gonna have to find a good and legit supplier. Some good websites are aliexpress.com and alibaba.com

    aliexpress is for smaller orders, so use this to test the waters
    alibaba is when you're ready to order larger quantities

    you have to find a good niche to sell. find something to sell and differentiate yourself to beat your competitors.

    good luck

    Always double check the site you wanna buy from, such as the BBB rating and also user reviews. They could be a straight up scam or be delayed on shipping.

    Thanks for your quick response.
    Witch do you think is an better idea? To purchase the products myself and then sell them to the buyer or tell the company to send it directly to the customer?

    Iám doing this for one year now, and it works fine and made me good money.


    1)I find a good keyword for selling, make a webshop

    2)bring it in google top #1 - #3

    3) buy in China @ http://www.aliexpress.com/ good buyers protection np at all.

    4) sell with good profit in you country.

    (watch out for the extra taxes you have to pay for importing to your country)
