    Alright then, this is my first post. I've been lurking the forums for quite some time now and I've decided finally to start something and hope it ends up with decent returns.

    My method basically consists of taking a product from Aliexpress and then reselling it at a higher price. Simple. It's dropshipping. So what I've done so far today is uploaded the product onto Ebay and created a quality template from HTML editor that looks pretty professional in my opinion. This was around 12pm today; it's 9:30 at night now. Total watchers so far are 20 and has about 80 views. In my opinion that's pretty good. But I want more, way more. So tonight I'm going to try to think of ways I can advertise myself about the product. Maybe Facebook, Twitter accounts, I don't fucking know yet. So far I've made 2 sales today. Which is not a bad start since you can say I hit $100/day.

    Anyway, I buy the product for $39/pair and resell them at $95
    • 2 bought = $78
    • 2 sold = $190
    • A nice $112 profit
    So I'm outside right now, just smoked a nice cigar. I threw the remainder of the cigar into my neighbors lawn because fuck that guy, and I'm about to finish typing up this thread.

    Little bit of a background on me, I'm an 18 year old heading into his freshman year of college. I graduated Magna Cum Laude, but honestly who gives a shit, I'm just bragging like a douche. I just want to make enough money so I can start a bigger project I plan to do before I hit 30, and then do the incredible and amazing.

    Welcome to Day 1 of my journey people
    I'm free and thankful of any tips or ideas that come my way!​

    Shit man, how are you getting that kind of interest in your listing? My experience with ebay was list an item, cricket chirps, auction ends, 3 total viewers.

    People love products involving famous individuals (e.g Yeezy's, Adidas Boosts), and the product looks 100% original. So it's easy to trick the person on the other end. I bought one for myself and basically put it through a test to see the quality and reliability. It tested out to be even more reliable than the damn original product, so I'm like fuck yeah, this is the golden ticket.

    Day 2
    Honestly, I just woke up and didn't have any orders which bummed me out. I'm still thinking of ways to somehow advertise my listing out to a larger audience; maybe create a store down the road. It's not much of an update right now, but throughout the day I'll keep updating to see if anything has occurred or if I've implemented any new tactics to selling.

    Fucking died hahahhaha. Congrats on your success man! Dropshipping is an excellent method. I have a shopify store pulling in around $200 - $300 a day. If you ever want to talk business, let me know.

    For these earnings, how much you invest daily on FacebookAds?

    Hey man do you have skype? I'd be willing to pay you for your time if you walk me through your money making method with shopify. I'd pay you about $100 so you can show me. Let's negotiate

    So much fucking wrong with this thread. First off, unless you pay like $100 just in shipping costs, there is no way the item will reach the customer in time if you are dropahipping from ali. Expect complaints followed by a nice account termination. Secondly, it sounds like you are selling yeezy knock offs and TM products, which is illegal. I realize this is a blackhat forum, but for real dude? Unfortunately a lot of newbies are going to read this and think this horseshit actually works.

    He is right, shortly after making only $112 in profits the next day my listing was removed, only way around these is to try to make your listing look authentic as possible. I'm not selling Yeezy rip offs anymore, I've decided to go after regular Nike Roshe's. And if that doesn't work out, i may look after a Shopify method or maybe switch over to Amazon, if I can. Like I said, this is my first post and I'm trying my hardest right now to make money. I don't come from a rich family and I'm paying my own tuition with a part-time job.

    But I'm not giving up on this, I made money and I can do it again. I'm free to any tips that I could use. I can push sales down peoples throats. I basically do that as a server anyway. I'll keep updating you guys as much as possible. I know this won't be easy, but it'll pay off in the end.

    If anyone wants to contact me on progress my skype is david.fenyvesi1

    PS: I am curious about Shopify; I have a Facebook page with about 3,000 likes and I'm sort of curious if I could use that to my advantage for Shopify. Anyway, I'll keep you updated.

    Late Night Update (12:30am)
    So currently it's 12:30 at night. I got off work at 11 and came home to start something. I've put 2 listings up and put as much information up as possible to provide authenticity. We'll see how it goes, in the meantime I'm thinking about setting up a Shopify store in a niche; I don't know what yet but I'll eventually figure it out and monetize it with the Facebook page I have. It has active views all the time but I'm just inactive on the page; not posting anything.

    A couple months ago before I graduated high school I had a clothing line that I wanted to start, I have the logo made and found a supplier willing to produce for me, all I was missing was a website. I starting building one on Wix, and it looks pretty decent in my opinion. So I may continue at that tonight. There's no way I'm giving up on this, so I grabbed one of my dad's Corona's and laid down in bed listening to the new Frank Ocean album. I'll do a later update tonight probably. I want to finish up my website on Wix and after that start the Shopify store idea.

    I just hope this all pays off in the end..

    Update (1:30am)
    I have the home page done with my Wix website, I see that as progress finally. My eyes are hurting, I'm tired but I still need to go on a little longer before I sleep. I have a brand new Facebook page regarding my brand name which is attached to the Facebook icon image on my home screen. Next is Twitter and Instagram. Email list has been set up to update customers of new products and discounts on the products.

    My Ebay listings are pretty quiet right now but I'm not surprised, it's pretty late. Maybe tomorrow I'll grab someone's attention. Tomorrow before I go to work I'm going to set up a Shopify also with a different niche than my other 2 ideas. Currently I'm trying to have 3 sources of income coming in. As a beginner that's not the smartest move but I'm trying to invest time into each project; trying to make progress with each to where I could be earning passive income.

    This will be my last update tonight. I'll try to do what I can and then fall asleep. Thank you for following along with my journey. Maybe one day I'll look back at my first posts and see how I started out; trying to juggle 3 projects, a part-time job and college classes all at once.

    (I tried to upload an image but I won't know if it'll get uploaded. But whatever.)

    You're going to have a TON of bad feedback if you're dropshipping with Aliexpress. People on ebay are NOT used to waiting that long to receive their products.

    My advice if you're going to use ebay to resell, is to fin da product you know people have a lot of interest in and that you can make a good profit with and order in bulk from Aliexpress to your house. Then list them on ebay and ship from your house.
