    Hey I'm a long time lurker wanted to post because I couldn't find anything specific enough that has been posted in recent years.

    The plan
    set up a jewelry e-commerce site using aliexpress products.
    Advertise through cpm on facebook.
    Send the products they order through aliexpress.
    Markup on a £1 product would be £3.99 plus £2.50 (inc. fake VAT lol)delivery, so like £7 profit each time.

    I know there is a ton of experience on BHW so if anybody can highlight the biggest problems I will face (ie. customs and VAT, delivery times, invoices), and any advice on how to overcome these I would be really grateful for any help.

    Thanks

    ship as gift its low value so no customs or vat, getting the initial sales may be the biggest problem
