    This method is far from blackhat but is stupidly simple. It involves using
    DHGate dot com and a real craigslist account.

    I bought 5 sets of P90X workout DVD's. Total cost was $141. They are $120 from the official site.

    I opened all the sets and played them at super fast forward to make sure they were working. That took about 1 hour to complete.

    Then I ran an ad in my town's craigslist: "P90X workout dvd's, complete set with all manuals and calender. Barely used. Buy them new for $120 or get the same thing from me for $65." Cash only.

    They were gone by Sunday afternoon.

    Cost: $141. Gross profit: $325 Net profit: $184 Total time invested: 2 hours.

    I know, it is not glorious or sexy, but 90 bucks an hour is not bad. P90X is hot where I live, so they sold fast. Use your imagination, get to know your local area trends and capitalize on them.

    An extra couple hundred bucks a week would be a godsend to some people....

    Don't try this on E bay. Stay small, and cash only....

    Good Luck.... :cool:

    nice idea, you can also say in your craiglist ad 'buying from me will save you X amount in shipping and handling fees too' etc, in forexspy's example, people need to pay $19.95 shipping for those workout dvds, that's a huge saving.

    Good method as you can do this with just about any product.

    Would the reason for staying away from eBay be because they're copyright?

    The copyright argument will probably never be settled. Some say yes, some say no. Bottom line is it is too easy for your auctions to get flagged and paypal to tie up your money. Besides, a lot of people like to buy locally from someone they can meet and just give cash to.

    Find out what is popular in your area and use whatever free online classifieds are popular.

    I see your point evil. Luckily I just do it as a sideline and not as a main income source.
    The cash covers my beer and eating out budget. Basically "fun" money. :D

    If they are from Dhgate, the Dvds are most likely copies. That's why you wanna stay away from ebay.

    These DVD's are probably copies. Could be risky if the buyer notices and complains...dunno. but good job on cashing in quick. It's good if you're strapped for cash, definitely not long term.

    I agree. It is not a long term income plan for sure.

    The thing is the buyer has no idea who you are really. Lets say they realize that they are fake and send you an email, all you have to do is hit delete lol.

    I've yet to find that stuff on dhgate, but when they start selling it I'll jump right on that.
