    Hi All,

    I've found a good source for laptops and name brand computers that come from off-lease from fortune 500 companies. I've been tinkering with selling them over the internet, but I'm stumped with only ebay (which in my opinion is a money maker, but a competitive jungle). The way ebay is going and their greedy brother paypal, i'd rather start in other ways although I'm keeping it open as a option.

    I was thinking about creating a simple e-commerce site and listing it with nexttag, google shopping (they have some area where products are listed for sale by merchants), shopping.com and the like.

    Any other ideas my fellow black hatters can throw out?

    Thanks!

    hi,

    yeah, exporting this stuff crossed my mind. sometimes wholesaling it is easier and sometimes the simple retail route is easy too.

    Use classifieds for sure, except find some low comp keywords and put them in title and description ive seen backpage, craigslist and kijiji dominate the search engines up to 50,000 competing results in quotes and some without. Also, do some with product specific terms as well. Egay sucks, recently they said their tracking inflated earnings 20%, so they'd be taken it back, seems more like they're losing sellers and recouping their loss with this kinda B.S.

    i agree that ebay freakin sucks! fees are skyrocketing to the point where sellers are leaving and turning to other methods to move merchandise. all the free classified sites are gold.
