    Hi people,l thought l would just chip in this system that is up and running and started making insane profits for my daughter on the second day she started.

    The recession in the UK and the eec has been particulary bad and when my daughter becky found out she was to be made redundent she asked me for my help as l make a full time living on the internet.

    The idea is not new in the usa but almost no-one seems to do it in the uk although some of the larger companies may be catching on but there is enough stock out there to make anyone a lot of money where ever they live.

    The system is very simple......Becky contacts companies large medium and small and asks if they have unsold stock that they would like to dispose of.

    She will tell them how much commission she wants for selling their stock, if they agree, she simply puts it on ebay for the price of a listing.

    Now l am not going to tell you how much she has earned but suffice to say it more than supports a really good lifstyle, she has purchased her own home off the back of this enterprise and its so simple to do, all it takes is a call to the companies...they have to get rid of old stcok ..it takes up valuable storage that is needed for new lines etc.

    Just answer your questions, I took my daughter to an auction house in Nottingham called Arthur Johnsons, it has 6 different auctions for different categories, there is a car boot outside along with a saturday market, then around the perimeter are lots of lock up shops/sheds that cater to the auction trade and public.

    We arrived at 9am, early bird gets the worm, but really to get my burger and cup of tea, whilst having the burger there was a man setting up his stall that sells refurbished power tools for both trade and domestic, a few questions later told me he was having a leaner time this year due to the recession, so my daughter offered to try and sell his stuff for him without telling him it was ebay..no need to put ideas into his head.

    She has since been selling for him just over a year now.

    Later in the morning we looked inside another trade shed and found a guy selling refurbished old pine chest and other items and he has been delighted with his sales and still asks her how she does the selling.

    She has also goe into the auction house and sells there leftover stock now as they only have to dispose of it and pay to do that as well. hope that helps you.

    It's a great idea, although there are set backs that would of course be put into play when your implementing the plan.

    Also, with the tool man, she's basically just a middleman really, being a middleman in high cost sales will always be successful if you meet the right people.

    Good luck to her though, glad to see her success.

    Nicho,

    Does your daughter take delivery of the stock or does she point the ebay buyer to the stock owner for collection/shipping?

    Yeah, I asked me the same?

    But it's great you talk about a real world working example, not only unboiled eggs. Fascinating idea, mostly left beside.
