    I'm sure many people do this where they buy products from ebay and resell for profit but not on ebay again but like to people around their area, because lets be honest Ebay has some great bargains. I'm thinking of doing this and buying clothing online and selling to people where i live to earn some cash ofcourse.

    Do you guys think its a good idea? . The only problem i have is delivery charges door to door because its expensive i'm sure and i cant give free delivery because i wont make much profit.

    Also do you think people will buy knowing the clothes are from China? because the tags on the clothing have those chinese writing.

    Thanks

    I would not recommend starting with clothing since the size and color issue is very difficult to
    learn and map out what sells.

    And you honestly believe people will buy without the tags?

    You could advertise it as BNWT (Brand New Without Tags)

    Ebay can be a gold mine with the right seller account and right products if proper research is done. I do agree with the above poster if selling chinese clothing bnwt is the way to go.

    Consider doing the opposite: go to local thrift stores & consignment shops, purchase vintage and designer clothing/accessories, etc. then sell on ebay for a tidy profit. I know several people using this method quite successfully, especially if you live in or near a large city with lots of these shops

    Well this is good idea but you will require lots of promotion to make more profits

    Its a Good idea but you need to do good research and find people who will sell products for cheap price.If you to buy and sell clothes there are so many people who do drop shipping.Get them and then sell on eBay and amazon for more price.

    Thanks guys! one more thing, is it possible to do some drop shipping thing.
    example. Buy an item on ebay and make the seller deliver/ship it to the customer to save on delivery fees on my side?
