    At Least For Me

    Disclaimer

    I am not a drop shipper, wholesaler or regular eBayer. I simply saw the opportunity to buy cheap and resell higher and invested. I am not providing anyone with where I purchased these at, anyone who asks will not get a response.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So, anyone who is a part time gamer (Such as myself) knows there is a lot of hype behind the upcoming release of https://www.callofduty.com/. One of the most (If not thee most) successful game franchises in the history of gaming. One of the purchases you can make of the game is a limited edition kit call the "http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-one/games/call-of-duty-black-ops-iii-juggernog-edition/123427" (Not affiliate link) which is currently sold out EVERYwhere. Normally (Retail), the Juggernog Edition costs $199.00 but for those wanting this special edition now with it being sold out, they're going to pay a lot more for it due to the demand (http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xjuggernog+edition.TRS0&_nkw=juggernog+edition&_sacat=0 - Not affiliate link).

    I came across the opportunity to purchase (Not on eBay) a bulk lot of 5 of the Juggernot Editions for $1,295 ($259 a peice) so I grabbed the deal. I went ahead and listed all 5 for sale on eBay at a "Buy it Now" price of $419 and sold all 5 within just a few hours. Priced competitively, I was pretty confident that they'd all sell within a day but not under 3 hours.

    This just goes to show you that if you can find the "right" product with good demand, there is money to be made as long as you can acquire the product(s) at the right price. Of course, this is pretty much a "one time" deal for me as I was only able to purchase 5 but there is definitely a market here so maybe it'll spark up some ideas for you all here!

    Appreciate it, I hope so as well. As I mentioned, I'm not a regular eBayer or dropshipper/wholesaler at all, I don't even search for deals to purchase. I just happened to run across an online store that just happened to have them in stock. The limit was 3 per customer so I had to make a couple of purchases (One through my name and one through a family member's name).

    For you CPA/PPD guys, this is a hot niche right now so I'd find ways to monetize now while you can. There's a lot of pre-release hype which means there "is" money to be made in many ways.

    Good job OP, you saw a good opportunity and took it. I did the same thing one time (but on a smaller scale) when I was at a garage sale and bought 4 Guitar Hero guitars for $20, and resold them all on Ebay as a bundle for $150. I probably could have gotten a lot more for them, but I sold them quick (the same day) and turned a profit. I was happy.

    Keep milking the method bro! Use mail forwarding services to bypass duplicate mailing address and you can use visa gift cards to order the item (no ssn required and you have the ability to use a custom address on it).

    So how do you protect yourself from a situation where the guy you're buying from doesn't deliver? Now you're in the awkward spot of at best having to refund your buyers and at worst having a hairy Paypal dispute mess on your hands.

    Obviously I have taken precautions to verify the seller & availability of the items. This is a reputable seller and I have done my due diligence.

    Just wanted to post an update for you guys...

    While I wasn't able (And am not able) to get my hands on additional copies of the Juggernog Edition to resell, I'm going to monetize this niche/release through other mediums. I'm going to set up a few sites (CPA & Content Locking) and drive traffic through the following channels:

    1. Facebook
    2. YouTube
    3. Organic

    I'll be posting screenshots of the progress/results for you guys, I'm pretty sure this is going to bank HARD! I'll probably create a separate thread for this as this is more of a "journey" but none the less I'll keep those who are interested to see the results updated.

    There's always money to be made my friend. As stated by a MOD, this is a virtual gold mine, you're sitting on it. It's just a matter of going through it all and finding a method you feel you could profit from.

    There are enough "money making" threads on here to last a lifetime.

    I'm sure I can find some landing pages for this CPA & content locking offer, how do you generate traffic for any locked content besides ranking? I thought about doing IG or scraping emails(for more specific offers like "win an iphone" in croatia).

    I mentioned in my previous comment how I plan on driving traffic:

    1. Facebook
    2. YouTube
    3. Organic

    These are the three methods of traffic that I will be targeting.
