    TOP 10 WAYS TO FAIL AT ONLINE RETAIL ARBITRAGE


    [​IMG]



    I know you're not a quitter. But if you know a quitter, hand them this list on how to fail fast with online retail arbitrage.​


    1.) Scout and list only items you like because what you like is obviously what others are looking for right?

    2.) Only sell trendy, "hot selling" items, especially consumer electronics. They're hot sellers for someone, which means it'll probably work out for you too!

    3.) Always dropship items from Amazon sellers with shady feedback or faulty products.

    4.) Beg your ebay buyers to leave you feedback every chance you get. 4th times a charm!

    5.) Spend all your time on making sure your listings are perfect in every single way. Miss a comma? You better check that description for a third time.

    6.) Compete on price with China wholesalers cause you'll always win, since you have a sweatshop in your basement!

    7.) Spend as much time as possible trying to find the perfect product to sell. We both know that one carefully selected product will make us rich!

    8.) Pay top price for retail products. Money-saving apps and discounted gift cards are a complete waste of time.

    9.) Always listen to forum trolls for advice on what works and doesn't work. Their assumptions are generally true because their post count is low.

    10.) Find out every last detail about every single aspect of retail arbitrage before you start. Lord forbid, you do not want to make one single mistake. It could ruin you!
