If you had an online shop with masks and gloves and all that threading products, how would you make the marketing to get sales? Forget facebook and google ads, they suspend your account in seconds.

By the time you get this all setup, the big guys are gonna have 10000x the stock you do at 10% of the price. 3M is a massive company who will kill you from every angle when it comes to selling commodities like face masks.

Why bother?

They can be advertised through social links and also who said they are completed banned in adwords? They work with adwords, but need to just cloak them and use safe keywords. It is very unfortunate situation that people are just banking with the crisis time.
Why is it unfortunate? You offer a product, people buy if they want. Is it that different from any other online business?

Mass email,guest post, and old return customers, that's the key to get traffic for me
If you provide attractive products with fast shipping when email
People will continue to reply to your email, you will keep inbox in

Ya and what shipping method are you using to get it to your warehouse? You're probably closer to 45-60 days for shipping by freight via ship unless you have connections I don't.

Where are you at with the FDA approval? Surely since face masks are medical gear they need to be imported with FDA approval, just like I had to do for my company. How backed up is the FDA anyways?

Is your corporate entity setup? Got your customs broker ready?

I swear people don't think this through. Why people don't go after easier ways to make money I'll never understand. The risk here is high.

They realy think they just can buy some "FDA approved" masks on alibaba and all is cool, like with pens or clothing.
So many people asking me "bro can you arrange mask, brooo please i can sell them so good", these days mask are easier to sale then "Pablos best" but also much more difficult to get.

My mom started selling mask today.
First, she just wanted to spend some time making it to donate. But a company offered so much money for it.
She worked all day ( today ) and crafted 60. All masks already sold

I can use the dropshipping method, dont need warehouse. 7 days its all I need to get material from China to Europe.

Why not? I am expecting 10 masks by tomorrow, I ordered to test them. FDA and CE approved. Am I missing something?

I don't know where you are from, but here, in my country, people are selling them openly on Facebook. They don't use Facebook ads though, but good old posts on groups. And it is working like crazy. That may be a path you can follow.

You seem to ignore the fact that there is limited services everywhere so the shipping might be delayed.

In some countries masks are regulated now since there is a lack of stock. People selling them are getting big fines. Be careful guys
