    I dont think many will give out this information. Creating competition for yourself by giving out source would not be smart. Especially if you sell any items from the same wholesaler and you can then turn around and compete back with the person. Researching sold items is the key then finding a source for that items(s) if the way to go.

    I found this site searching for wholesale xbox live codes. Google wholesale with the name of the items you are looking. You will find some hits.

    if you don't mind - what country do you live in?
    have you tried sourcing your items locally by visiting warehouses near your home?
    what other items are you trying to sell?

    Everyone likes listing Alibaba and those crooks everytime someone ask for a supplier. Best thing to do is find an independent middle
    man to start selling. Does he get a cut? Yes he does. Is it worth it? Starting out it is worth it if you can trust them to handle returns
    and get you unique items in the location you want to sell items from.

    After you have built business good enough you can cut out the middle man or buy in bulk from the factory but we all have to
    start somewhere right?

    I go to tradeshows. I tried sourcing online using some companies already mentioned--but was not successful.

    I've used it personally and they're pretty great place to buy almost anything wholesale. You can even buy small quantities too, but you'll only get a discount if you buy in bulk.

    One reason why you were not successful is for the most part those sites have ridiculous mark up unless you buy high quantity
    and then you do not know if you can trust them or not. Like I said stick to a person to start and selling local items until you can
    purchase larger quantity items. Try to do market research and fine unique items.

    I wish it was this easy. I feel like the markup on a lot of the items is too high to make a profit in most places. If you find a good one, you're one lucky guy! Haha, and feel free to share!

    The mark up is pretty high but you have to think about your expectations. You expect someone from around the world
    to ship one item to you? That cost a lot with shipping. A lot of the mark up is shipping. The person has to physical go down
    and mail it and that takes some time.

    It is very hard to compete when you are not buying in bulk. Impossible? Certainly not. But it is not done on Alibaba or dhgate.
