    I have heard of people making tons of cash buying Brand new Apple products such as iPhone and iPad at full price from apple and selling them to make a profit. How is this possible? Who are they selling to? Who is willing to pay more for a product than its retail price? Or have I just been Misled?

    They are probably buying in the US and selling the items overseas.

    Sometimes you can get lucky in the first few weeks of release when it's harder to get and make an exorbitant amount.

    So it is possible to buy on opening day in bulk and sell on ebay quickly? Can anybody share their experience with this if possible

    Yes, it's mostly overseas. I doubt anything can be made domestically.

    When a product is released in the US it ussually takes a few weeks before it's released in EU and UK. Some people ship a few and sell it with profit, because some people are attention whores and want the product ASAP

    Hey everyone,

    To klaxxon still til this day I haven't found that supplier but I do have a supplier that sell orignal iPhone 4 which includes shipping fee and drop shopping fee but only within the US all together for $830.00 for 32GB unlocked. It's pricy but it's worth it and definitely getting the real thing so I rather pay more than pay less for garbage.

    Some people buy a brand new mac and up the specs and load it with pirated Adobe apps and sell it for an extra $500-$1000.
