Hello everyone, this post is from WSO, this guy is my partner in Philippines. I noticed him for one month, and I admired his plan and small test. So, we started our cooperation. His post as follows: Date: 02-28-2013 I love trying different ways in making some good money on the internet and I have been successful so far with all of them and I'm doing this fulltime for a year now. This time, I would like to branch out with selling physical products. Today I tried buying some products from my dropshipper. I know they are not the good people to buy some wholesale items from. I should buy direct from the manufacturers (which I will do later) or maybe my dropshipper is a manufacturer (not sure really). Well, I don't care about that now. What I care about is the result of this approach. So here's what I did: I ordered some sample items from a China based company because I'm thinking about buying some items to sell locally. I still need to learn how much time it will spend to get to my address and how much money (total) including custom tax will I be spending. Ordered 5 items for $32.65 total + $4.9 shipping and insurance (I paid for the cheapest shipping which is a registered Mail). The item is shipped today and they provide tracking. I'm going to wait for it and I'll observe how much tax will I be paying. TARGET MARKET: Local Sell the items for profit. PLANS: If this goes well, then I'll order more products and sell more and advertise on the internet. I HOPE TO GET SOME GOOD RESULTS TOO> I'll keep this thread updated.
