    Hi,

    I realise this is a bit of a long shot, but I thought I'd cast a line and see if anybody could help ...

    I work full time, but want to earn a little on the side. Can anybody suggest a type of product I can sell online that makes around £20 (about $30) in profit for each item sold? I'm looking for small, high margin products that I can carry in a shoulder bag to the post office on my way to work.

    Any suggestions? All appreciated!

    Cheers

    Andy

    Let's see :)

    30 bucks profit per item - not a hard thing to accomplish.

    Fitting it in a backpack / shoulder bag does restrict the selection a bit, though.

    Problem i see is the full time job. If you do find something that makes you money and sales are getting bigger there will be a time when you have to decide.

    Go for it all the way or not ?

    That's the real hard decision to be made when time comes. Not enough time in a day anymore to do both - go to work and do your sales. Free time and social life is already suspended by then for a while.

    Income from the online sales do not quite yet justify quitting your job but , darn, there ain't enough hours in a day.

    As for what kind of goods to sell - yes, asking here is a long shot at best :)

    There are plenty of cheap tablets on alibaba you could easily resell for a $30+ profit... a standard back pack should hold at least 5 or 6...

    He wants to have a side income, not a side headache....

    Haha! Thanks for the tips guys. I'm still none the wiser really, but its encouraging to know that it is possible and all of the margins haven't been squeezed out by sellers continuously undercutting each other to oblivion.

    Any other thoughts?

    Cheers
