    I was reading a thread on Importing items from China and selling it in your country and I was very impressed and I want to give it a go.

    About Myself

    I am 21.Have 3 months of my engineering left.Have already got a job via campus placement in CSC.I have made a considerable amount of money with my other business ventures.I already own a very flashy car (a fully modified 2001 Lancer)since I was like 19.I bought it with my own money and customised it.
    I started a company but it landed into legal troubles.Another startup venture is another production.

    Right now you can see me selling Xbox Live Subs.I make decent money out of it but Gaypal and MoneyHookers are giving me a lot of trouble.

    Enough about me let start the journey.

    Strategy: Source products from China(Alibaba and Aliexpress) and sell it here online via eBay,other vertical marketplaces and niche forums.

    Kind Of Products : Basically something which can be sold fast and is non-electronic and has atleast 30-50% margins

    Day 1-3
    Looking over Alibabad extensively for some nice phone cases.Found a lot of nice suppliers with custom designs.The case market is very saturated here but people still want to get something different.So I am going to source custom cases.

    Also sent over designs for bobble heads and other plush toys.The market is huge if I can get the right characters.

    Messaged lot of suppliers.Talking with them right now.Still to recieve replies from the target suppliers.

    Going only for Gold Suppliers.

    Keep you updated on more.

    Since it China New Year.Havent got responses from a lot of sellers.Found some official products on AE from a reputable seller.

    Talked to him and got huge discount.Should be a great sale.Bought two lots for a test order.

    Lesson Learnt : Always talk to the seller.Bargain hard.:D

    It is a good start for a beginner like me.And if you search deep,their are good sellers around.Just go for Gold Suppliers with a history.

    if you have any other site similar to these except dhgate and dx.Please share.
