I started a thread a few weeks ago about how I want to help my parents get started on eBay (buying stuff in wholesale and reselling). Now, we all have basic knowledge of eBay, but it is our first time that we will be buying stuff in bulk and reselling. Now, so far, I've looked at a few markets..make up and fragrances, to be exact. I'll talk about fragrances first. I've looked at quite a few wholesale sites (real items, not knockoffs), and even at wholesale price, they are selling a bottle of cologne at like $20. I check on eBay, and I see the same bottle of cologne being sold for $22 + free shipping. Seems like it's not worth it at all, considering eBay and PayPal pick up fees as well. Am I missing something here? It looks like you need to be selling thousands and thousands of items to even see somewhat of a profit.
