This is a good idea. I know when I look for books for classes I go straight to Amazon. I find it hard to believe people would go straight to eba*y and not check anywhere else first. but hell if they're willing to pay for the books I'm sure there will always be people like us willing to sell the books to them.
It's a new idea to make money.
Thank's for your sharing.
I was looking the other day for something and it came up high in the search engines on amazon. It was $28 plus shipping, I found it on ebay for 17 free shipping. I baught it because I needed it, But thought about flipping some of them.
This is the other way, but the same principle. Product arbitrage. lol This definately is a worthwhile post.
thought people would think it was stupid, thanks for the input!
Just trying to think outside the box =] find some pretty untapped niches to share and exploit here =]
Go to craigslist, free section. Or you could post AD's asking for free college books/hella cheap
Drive to persons house, pick up free item.
List on egay.. or craigslist, lol.. even a $10 profit, is indeed profit..
off topic: my frozen pizza has sauce on the bottom and cheese on top... wtf? someone fucked up!
Found a serious seller selling texts.
I took the algebra and trig book that sold for $109, searched on amazon and found it for $85
This could get some money tied up quickly in this though. $10 + profit after fees. I am sure there are better examples, I just took the first one.
Nice share jammie
try and find some really really cheap ones, Big uni's tend to use the same books every year etc. so not only is it more demand, its also more supply to flip.
Most students would sell books for quite cheap as they don't need them, then you can just sell them on.
I know what you mean about getting money tied up though, but if you make your sale first, then buy (if you have a reliable supplier/way of getting books) its easy-ish to avoid.
But im just trying to give examples to people to think outside the box. I'm sure there are other great markets which haven't been tapped yet!
keep the examples coming...
thanks, i'll try n think of some more "off the beaten track" methods soon, but i'm all out for now!
Shall have a quick think tonight!
