    Hey everyone,

    I currently sell used electronics on Amazon. Just by the very nature of being used electronics, it is a difficult, but not impossible, area to try and keep below a 1% defect rate. I am constantly flirting with it. Do you guys know of some fairly cheap products that can sell extremely well on Amazon? There doesn't even have to be a profit margin, I wouldn't even mind taking a small loss. I just need some cheap products that sell well and fast that I can use to pad my stats while I continue selling the electronics. Do you guys have any ideas for products I could sell?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    One thing which sells well are store exclusive or brand products. Think Target or Toys R Us exclusive items you can only buy in their store or on their site.

    People will pay a huge mark up just to be able to get them on Amazon and get free shipping and all that jazz.

    Hughes, that is only because you did not read the directions.

    "Must wash after use."

    I don't believe in washing things such as this.

    I upgraded to amazon prime and now they even pay for my return post.

    There must be a market for used fleshlights then I suppose. You think they won't resell the one you returned? I doubt it. Someone's unknowingly touching dicks right now.

    Unknowingly? I am sure their is a market for used fleshlightes.

    I would also assume they age like wine and are more valuable over time.

    Hughes may be passing up a great opportunity by returning them.

    First I would find small items that fit in with the electronics your are selling. This can be done through many methods like google or simply searching for people that are selling similair items and see what else they are selling. Selling phones, think stylus or phone cases. Then go onto a wholesale site (tons of them out there, I just can't post links yet.) And buy these cheap items in bulk. Make sure you find trusted vendors, with high ratings.

    Well the the real money is when you can flip items bought from Amazon to CL and make some money. People tend to hit CL during new in demand items. If you can get these cheaper, there are ways, then you would be making money (P.S. this is MY method and it works).
