    hello.

    just thought i would make a little progress thread as it will inspire me when i look back at it in the months to come. :)

    ok back in December i finally thought, i need to really take action and make money online instead of always dreaming.

    so i started searching what to do.

    i thought what is the easiest way to make money... EBAY

    next was to find a product. and i did! i found a seller of iTunes Gift Cards. a very hot item on ebay. so my success was instant. within the first week i had made a profit £1000! the following week i made £500. then my paypal got limited due to me reaching the limits. so it took about two weeks to sort that out.

    then i found it hard to get back into the market as competitors had lowered their prices etc. i am still making a small profit but due to ebay's gift card policy finally catching up on me its not enough.

    so this got me thinking... what can i do!!

    until yesterday i had the perfect idea!

    ask yourself... how much could i make if i could buy basically any product (apple ipods, phones, ipads, blackberry's etc etc) 20 X cheaper?? these products are totally legit before someone shouts REPLICA!

    so where i am i now? well today i have been talking to my magic supplier.
    Tomorrow i will buy 5 Apple Ipod Touch and when the arrive at my door i will list them on ebay. each making... about £130 profit each. then with this profit, i will buy iPads ;)
    im also considering free next day delivery (within the UK) to tempt buyers away from the powersellers.

    the plan is to scale this up and up. also to start selling on Amazon.

    i will update this thread with my progress and let you guys know how i am doing :)

    i never thought 4months ago that i would be in this situation. i now have the oportunity to set myself up for life and im just 22! i just have to do it right.

    Again before anyone says... these products have to be fake or stolen, theres no way you can buy a ipod touch for $10... think outside the box. its not always black and white.

    one question before i go, is there any rules against selling Branded goods on ebay for example Apple?

    Jonathan ;)

    sorry but you cannot buy legit apple products at deep discounts, it is really just not possible---magic suppliers do not exist

    Ebay limit you to one apple product sale at a time until feedback is received

    remember not everyone leaves feedback so you will have to chase for that before you can list more

    Good luck if you have found the MAGIC supplier but I fear tears are near

    Those Apple products WILL be replica. I don't know if you are stupid, or you think everyone else is.

    Wish you luck mate, but i'm affraid it has run out fast.

    I'm betting you will have to visit the customs office first, and that will kill all the action from there on.

    Now if you are talking about electronics similar to Apple Ipod, but overall and altogether diferent, you might have something going, just not at that profit margin.

    Lol I knew there would be answers like these.
    1... Why would customs get involved with legit products bought direct from a huge well known worldwide retailer? Not a Chinese seller.
    My genius idea is not in buying fake goods or even anything to do with the products themselves.
    The clue is in the way i buy my stock...

    This is all I'm saying until my next update but I can assure you that the products are REAL

    I also doubt that there's a $130 profit to chase there. I'm also just experienceing success. I'm selling SEO services on an entrepreneur forum with a huuge profit margin. About $200 profit since sunday =) It really doesn't take a genious to make money.

    Hmm.. even the biggest department store retailers don't make nearly that kind of profit of "legit" electronic products... If you honestly have something then good for you but chances are your being lied to.

    How to make this profit? The cards are being sold only a few $ higher than normal price, so $100 card is sold at $105.
    I do not know where you get your cards in order to make profit, they can never be authentic. And if you sell fake cards, the HK sellers offer e.g. $100 card for $30 but PLUS $60 shipping ....

    Even a 200 BILLION dollar company named, I don't know... Walmart.... doesn't make that kind of profit. Also, the companies that makes legit Apple products will not even talk to you without you fronting up a couple hundred thousand USD and thats just to sneak their shit out of the back door. I won't even talk about being an Authorized Apple Reseller.

    I'm calling this guy a troll. He's probably a Chinese dude living in mainland hoping people PM him to buy from this "magic source" too so he can send them fake iPads he gets from TaoBao. Either that, or the profits from "replica Rolex and LV are so tempting" as stated by this user in another thread has clouded his judgement too much to realize he's going to get a bunk iPod.

    You do know that eBay is completely limiting the amount of Apple products a person can sell each month, right? And eBay has a list of people who are even allowed to Sell new Apple stuff - a list supplied by Apple themselves.

    Because customs is involved in everything import/export related, and if you really DO live in the UK, customs is strict to make sure tax is collected.

    OP, do you think, if your magic supplier had the ultimate hookup to get the products to you at such a low price, something has to be fishy about the deal. Use your head bro and quit looking at the $$.

    You're comments and replies were fine until the racist remark "He's probably a Chinese dude living in mainland hoping people PM him to buy from this "magic source" too so he can send them fake iPads he gets from TaoBao."

    believe me when I tell you UK customs open about 0.2% of all packages that goes through, they just do not have the time. 99.8% of replicas get through

    That is just as an aside on this thread, just wanted to correct the point made

    What makes you so sure the product is real? Can you shed some light on what you have looked at/who you talked to/etc. that makes you so sure? I'm quite curious about this...The margins alone should make you suspicious in my opinion.

    you do not understand. and no i am not chinese living in the UK and no i will never reveal my source and not going to be asking for money or any help or anything on this forum.

    that is why i asked the question.. is there any rules about selling apple products on ebay. i was not sure so i asked the question. if you read my post im sure you would have seen this.
    if i have problems with apple i will just change to another product. not that im planning to focus entirely on apple anyway. just an example and something to start with.

    as i said. its not the products themselves, its the way in which i buy/sell them.

    when i said magic seller, i didnt mean it was a guy making the products in his bedroom or whatever, i meant, this is a magic idea and cant believe this hasnt been mentioned on this forum before.

    believe me ive been on aliexpress, DHghate etc etc. im not interested in fakes. why sell fakes when you can sell the real thing and still profit?

    just be happy and stop being jealous of someone elses success.
    if i fail, i fail. let me do it.
    but if i succeed........ :cool:

    i do not want to give away my idea as it is actually so easy to do. i cant even write html or anything like that. its just basic buying and selling. of course i understand why everyone is saying... how can this be possible etc. now this is going to get very complicated... imagine this....

    buying for example an iPad for, how much are they.. for example $500. (as you can see this is a real price and is the price that i will be 'paying')

    ok. then my idea comes into play...

    then i go on ebay. ipads are selling for what... $480?
    but i paid $500 im going to lose money... NO.
    i can list my ipad for $450 ( $30 lower than the competitors)
    $50 less than what i 'paid' and still make a huge profit :D


    i know this sounds so stupid and that im working in reverse i.e (losing money instead of profiting) but its due to the idea that i have had that i can profit. i cant explain anymore. but i promise i will update this when i do it.
