    You didn't offend me. Some people on bhw say things that aren't true to make themselves look bigger than they are. Why is beyond me. For all anyone knows, you could be managing someone else's account. Who knows. But some of the things in this thread are not true, and I don't want to see people losing money because they believed what they read.

    everything redrubies said in this thread is correct imo. forget about amazon.

    take what you read on here with a grain of salt, yes there are big guys out there making 100k+ a month (with other methods), but guess what - they don't post about it.

    1) they dont feel the need to brag
    2) they are too busy doing not commenting all day and
    3) (most importantly) they are not revealing their methods.

    I want to add more to this thread:
    Its not only Amazon and eGay that you can sell on.

    Try and search different websites you can sell to. I have researched one for 2-3 days by just browsing the website and analysing the average sellers. This website is displaying the total sold items per user. The last user I saw had 5k listings, had only 1 picture and a super basic description for each of his listings. I was like "this guy isnt making money" When I looked at his stats he has sold more than 1k items for 1 year. Sure enough he was.

    Then there are many suppliers, wholesalers and dropshippers on US soil with unbelievebly low rates. My favorite one is dollartree. Now you'll say "how am I going to sell this, they have minimum order of 8 per item or so". Well think outside of the box.. You don't buy one dinner plate, you don't buy one wine glass, you do not buy one fork or one toilet paper. Meh..

    Also take your time and search for US fulfillment centers, there is shipwire, which rates are no more than 3$ per item.
    Find your best selling item and search for it in aliexpress or alibaba. Ship it to shipwire and free up your time for expanding your business.

    My friend is making more than 10k per month like this. I am also getting my feet wet. Had one sale already and im going to make some listings tomorrow.

    Good luck to anyone!

    I have a funny story that your post reminded me of. Ebay was hot for the seller in the late 90's/early 2000's. A seller could get a fair price for their goods back then. I used to use ebay for a side business back then because I was a single mother, and the side business was like an extra income in addition to my regular work. I got the kids involved in ebay buying. My youngest son had an eye for antiques, as well as anything of value. We would go to the yard sale, and he would walk straight to something and call for me to come look at it. That kid was good. My daughter on the other hand hated yard sales and would just go for something to do. She was not into helping with the ebay business. Well one day we were in the dollar store and she saw retractable dog leashes. She told me to buy ten of them and put them on ebay for a dollar each. I said no, that wasn't what I was really interested in selling on ebay. She persisted and I gave in because I thought this kid is finally into helping with ebay and maybe I shouldn't disregard her ideas. Those damn dog leashes sold for between $10 and $20 each. LOL!!! She's 24 now and if I don't really like a suggestion that she has given me, she yells at me and says "REMEMBER THE DOG LEASHES??? WHO WAS RIGHT AND WHO WAS WRONG???" LOL

    You have learnd your lesson: "Two heads think better than one!"
    Btw I was very sceptical that people are going to buy from some other e-store when they know there is amazon and ebay.
    Well I proved my self wrong. Also I very much want to live in the USA now cause I have to pay extra for fulfillment when I could just use one room for goods storage and just ship from my home. And all those dollar stores can make you a huge profit. I have had seen 1-2$ dollar items sell easly for 19.99$ in amazon as well as in ebay pretty often, cut 7-8$ for delivery and you have nice side income. If you want PM me to swap some dropshippers/wholesalers.

    I haven't sold on ebay or Amazon for quite some time now. But the dollar store is a good idea.

    Hey, do you still sell on Amazon? I'm still learning. I just want to do it as an extra income. What do you think of it? I just want to sell brand name dish soap that i get for really cheap.
