    Every time I look on a wholesale site like DHGate or Alibaba I find items I could sell on Ebay for a profit...except that it's illegal. DVD box sets, phones, memory cards, it's all supposedly illegal to buy in bulk and sell on Ebay. Is there anything that isn't going to get the cops to show up and throw you in prison where you'll get gang raped by a bunch of guys holding down your arms and legs and catch AIDS?

    Where did you hear that its illegal to buy in bulk and sell on ebay? Theres nothing illegal about that, only if your selling replicas is when you have a problem. Find a legit product from a trustworthy supplier and your good to go.

    The problem is finding a legit product. From what I've read, DVD box sets are usually pirated and phones and memory cards are usually counterfeit. There's plenty of stuff that's legal to sell, for example "Sciphones" that aren't pretending to be Iphones, Apads that aren't pretending to be Ipads, and unbranded memory cards, but you usually can't make a profit on that stuff. When you can make a profit, it's a very small profit. The big money is in branded stuff, but according to what I've read the branded stuff on those sites is all counterfeit...if it wasn't, making money would be a piece of cake. This is according to folks on the Salehoo forum...they say DHGate and similar sites are legit for unbranded stuff, but that you should stay away from anything with a major (and thus profitable) brand name.

    Damn did you even read the thread?

    The guys wants to re-sell stuff from DHgate ot Alibaba.

    Well all electronics are closely monitored but you could try reselling some bracelets or stuff like that , I remember seeing of those Rubber Bracelets for like 20c each on DHgate and someone was selling them for 4$ a pop on Ebay which is quite a nice Up-mark

    FUUcCk eBay, go stealth and sell as many fakes as you can rinse and repeat. Going legit on ebay only leads to the same fate as selling fakes. Account closure. Those shit heads that re running ebay don't give a eff about you or your business. So if you want to be profitable on ebay you need to sell with controlled wrecklessness.. nothing will change until google gets there head out of there ass and create there own auction site. Until then screw ebay, paypal, and any moron that thinks they won't get screwed by them. Its only a matter of time. Yes I hate ebay and paypal! But I do make money there so its a love hate thing.

    ineedmoney1 is right, ebay doesnt care about sellers.
    They'll suspend you for a single low dsr no matter youre the only legit seller left on ebay.
    Go stealth, go slow and be smart. Make more than one account to stay under the radar. Keep cycling the high risk products with low risk items.

    Your better off not dealing with DHGate and Alibaba. Normally unless your buying in large quantities you will not
    be able to sell them cheap enough compared to larger fish swimming in the eBay market. Concentrate instead on finding a reliable middle man. Sure he will take a cut but in the end you will have a personalized service and cheaper products.

    Loom Bands - but that train left the station a few month back.

    Stuff got pretty cheap now - box with 600 bands, S hooks and board about 80 cents to a buck.

    Refills about 8 bucks per kg - and that's about 15.000 bands. Happy re packing

    Cheap enough and easy enough to ship to still turn a small profit - if you want to deal with a very large number of competitors. Better things around to sell for sure but not a bad thing for feedbacks or new sellers
