    Hello,

    I did some work for someone in return for just over $3800 worth of adult toys. The man who gave me all of his inventory also gave me his domain name because he says he is having a hard time selling locally and is just too busy.. I am looking for advice on how to sell all of this stuff.. I don't know if I should try learning Magento, use a WordPress ecommerce addon, use Shopify, or just list on ebay or amazon.

    Any advice on how to get started with this stuff would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Hire a professional, or search for some tutorials on building an e-commerce website. It's not exactly an easy task, and requires attention to specific detail. Plan it out right from the beginning, or you're heading for disaster.

    I would start with your necessities. (Shipping, payment gateways, etc.)

    The good old blackhat way, find videos from tube sites, download them, slap your watermark to your store's site on them and voila; You've got traffic that MAY actually end up buying a big black dildo.

    P.S., I'll take my cut in skittles and Oh Henry bars ;)

    Door to door selling. Tell them that you are selling this product for only $x and a free demo is included. Offer the free demo only to ladies or as per your preference.

    Adult video marketing.

    When doing 'research' on porn the other day I saw a video advertising sex toys. It was a Brazzers vid with some basic ad slapped on it. It had 200k views.

    That, or try shift them at a low whole price.

    Or if all else fails - sex toy rental business?

    I guess more specifically what I am asking is what is the best platform to sell them on not as much as how to market it. I will have to get to that later. Is it worth it to learn Magento or should I just be using something like Shopify and Bigcommerce?

    Are they used toys?

    Try listed them as used adult toys in a certain classified that is owned by "C".

    There are a lot of freaks out there that are into nasty things like that... also used underwears are hot :/

    Unless you want to get more invested in the adult toy business you should check out the adult section in ebay, they try to keep it a secret, but it's there .... Everything Else>Adult Only>Sex Toys>Dildos
    I'm assuming these are all packaged inventory.

    Take em all to a local sex shop which has been around for a while, and offer to sell them for lower than retail. If they have been in business a while, they won't have trouble selling them and will grab them off you

    If you want to retail, Ebay and Amazon will work fine. If you want to dump it all, try classified ads but only expect 25% of retail value. It's not worth setting up an e-commerce store for $4K in merchandise unless you plan to restock once your initial inventory sells.
