    Hey everyone. I'm wanting to start an e-bay resale service. I need someone who is both dedicated and reliable to find items that are low-priced and can be sold back for more, be willing to get them shipped to them, and then get them shipped out to another buyer for a higher price.

    This is all with my money, and I prefer it be a more reputable member. Thanks!

    So, you're looking to pay someone to find a dropshipper for you and transfer your money to them?

    I'm not sure I follow.

    I buy the items that they find that profit can be made on. It gets shipped to them, I find a buyer to buy it for a higher price, and they ship it to the buyer. I give them a percentage of profit, and a little payment upfront. I hope this clears things up!

    Not really. This would only make sense to me if:

    You're trying to sell something in a different country than you are in. (Hire someone in US to ship in US)

    You don't have any reputable low cost suppliers.

    Am I right?

    Furthermore, what are you looking at selling? I have tons of suppliers. Some dropship, some don't.

    Anything that's going to turn over a large profit. TVs that are being sold at a low price so they can get some quick spending cash, things like that.

    In other words, you want someone to scrape youtube for what they consider to be great deals, and hold/reship the item once you've bought it in return for a commission, correct? Not quite the same as finding a drop-shipping supplier.

    It's an interesting idea. I would be in if I didn't hate working on commission.
