    Is there a point to start an ecommerce website for selling things that can be bought on ebay and amazon?


    Me personally if i need anything other than clothes i go to amazon or ebay.

    Blackhatters what do you think, can good money be made with a small ecommerce site?

    I run a few e-commerce sites and know lots of other companies who do very well running a small e-commerce shop.

    Not everyone loves the eBay and Amazon experience and I've often found that certain niche items can actually be a lot more expensive on Amazon/eBay (probably due to high fees, etc).

    Of course! Almost everything is sold on Ebay.. this does not mean you cannot sell on an e-commerce site

    You cant think like that in marketing. Just because you and your friends all go to X or Y, does not mean everyone does.

    You have to think about that 1% that does not.

    Lot of People do that you can do that too
    if you copy paste their model then you might succeed

    Of course. Right marketing or SEO and you can sell anything - forget that someone is allready selling it on eBay.
