Thanks for your response.
This would be more suited to selling online but buying in public so you see before you buy and shipping yourself or it could also be done by paying them via PayPal and they ship straight to your customer.
In regards to them receiving fake items etc it wouldn't be a problem, if someone does a charge back to you as the item was fake, you do a charge back to the sender as the item was fake.
Everyone is protected and there is nothing shady about this method.
Yes re-sale more than drop-shipping with the possibility to drop-ship as and when you can.
Perfect method for guys starting out.Acting as a middleman is one of the best and easieast ways to bank some good $$.This method also applies to digital prodcucts as well such as buying services on fivver and flipping them on ebay or other e-commerce sites.Great share op!
Are there any websites that you would suggest that have fair market value of different models of phones/mp3 ect. for this purpose?
I think the profit margin would be very low due to the fact that the technology niche is very saturated (especially on ebay). This method is applicable to a lot of different niches though, so thanks for the share!
great idea of making some quick money. thanks for sharing
What do you do if the item on CL is sold to someone else or is not what you sold?
List new unlocked items only and you will find another seller.
this is a guarantee method to get some quick dollar, if you do it right. perfect for noobs starting off with ebay, amazon, etc. Old school method that stills works.
this is just for people with little hope of making income
I disagree, this is a lucrative drop-shipping or as another poster said re-sale opportunity available to anyone willing to take the risks with easy to sell, high value products.
Basically, a very good idea, however there are also some downsides.
1. You are using an unknown "dropshipper" (the person you are buying from on CL or Gumtree). So what if he does not send what you
ordered (e.g. he sells as new but it is used) or even he does not send anything? Ok, you can do a chargeback, however, negative feedback
on eBay will be sure .....
2. You have to specify on eBay how you will send it and how long it will take. What if he says he sends it next day but sends it next week?
Your buyer will be very unhappy, again negative feedback.
3. Fees on eBay are very high. It will take you much time to find an item to make a decent profit after fees. Nobody gives away phones etc.
on Gumtree, and prices on eBay are already the lowest on the market, so quite hard to compete with.
good Method i like it but please you say with 0$ investement but how u will buy the iphone from Gumtree to send it to buyer from ebay if u didn't pay the price of iphone to the seller i think it's necessary to have money to buy the item from gumtree when u find a buyer in Ebay ????
