This is a well-known method that I've tried in my homeland. A little change that you guys could use is to locate a local website which is famous in your country to sell the clothes there. For example, Romania and Bulgaria have OLX, where anyone can sell stuff. So go and buy some clothes and re-sell them on your local market or even better as OP said: eBay
You can do the same with Garage Sales as well. Nice emphasis on the difficulty / pricing.
Although some members are too young for this the older crowd would do wonders with it.
If you live in a new era city this would work good for almost anybody.
Basic flipping, I like it bro. simple method.
Thank you, it works really well after a while when you learn which products to buy to make the most profit, but there is profit it in this for everyone no doubt.
you got me thinking mate thanks for this
Great tips, thanks for sharing!
My girlfriend does this. I've noticed that "bulk lots" sell best especially kids clothes. She sells 10 pieces of the same size at once and the customers feel like they are saving on shipping.
Here in the US the Salvation Army and other churches hold regular $5 and $10 bag sales. Stuff a grocery bag or 13 gal trash bag as full as you can type sale. Ask around and you'll find them. She makes 10x profit on average this way. The first time I saw this she was only spending 5 or 10 so I bought $100 worth of bags and got to the sale early, wiped them out, and we cleared $1127 on that haul! I have never posted so much Ebay shit in my life though and won't do it again.
A note on pictures, title, and description. My GFs listings out sold mine BIG TIME. Hers were personal, cute, chatty, mom-ish, crappy photos on the couch, phone camera, bad lighting. Mine were "professional", keyword researched, Ebay search optimized, photo boothed, well lit, HD, perfect in every way. Wtf! She re did all my listings that wouldn't sell and they sold right away. Flock...
Lol. Oh yeah. For the bag sale find a large tshirt to put the bag inside of so you can stuff that mother full of puke stained golden cheddar without ripping the bag! Go down and watch the pros werk.
This is method does werk if you werk. Thank you OP.
Been there done that short of the returns bit. Pretty sure after awhile seeing you return stuff over and over they will decide they don't want you in the store anymore. Plus at least in my area all the thrift stores have a No returns policy. You can still make a little bit of money doing this though but it's a ton of work for little pay.
I found an older couple on Craigslist that buys storage units and sells it on eBay and garage sales but they have way too much stuff and outsource the work. This has been my "Saturday job" for half a year now, I take %50 of everything I sell. Don't have to invest any money, just time. My girlfriend loves doing the garage sales, she's not very internet marketing savvy so this is more or less her thing, I just handle the money and business side of things, but I do go and get my hands dirty.
This is a simple method that anyone can do, just can't be afraid to work.
I have returned hundreds of things to the same shop and not once has anyone told me that I could not shop or return things there. I bring them tonnes of money buying stuff and so they win out either way pretty much.
