    I just thought I would post a small thank you to the people here, I am technically 1 month into my Blackhat Career if you can call it that, yesterday I made my first money ($2) I know it may seem like absolutely nothing it isn't the monetary amount that I care about, it is the fact that in 1 month on here I have learned a LOT.

    I've been interested in making money online for a long time, probably 10 years.
    A while back I was actually quite successful on Ebay, making about $15,000 per month for a little while there, however some supplier problems in China made it to difficult for me to continue.

    About a year ago I registered on Warrior Forums with war room membership, I just found that I wasn't learning very much it was mostly just people trying to pass off their wares and WSOs or other gurus trying to teach you how to be a guru, which is complete bull I don't trust someone who's niche is being a guru.
    While BHW has their fair share of people who also try and sell their products, it also has the same people providing invaluable information, for example zenoglitch his BlackHat botting guide and topics in general are always very informative which in turn made me finally decide to try xtumblr bot.

    While on BHW I have learned so much valuable information, and each day I learn more so thank you to this great community.

    Welcome back to the King of Kings, BlackHatWorld. Really though, WF, DP, E5 none of them compare to the information and advice provided here. I'm not ass kissing either, it's just a fact.

    wow if you ever made $15,000/month on ebay that is amazing! it is still worth doing even you can make only half or less
    what are supplier problems in China actually? Do they scam a lot? I have just read this thread blackhatworlddotcom/blackhat-seo/ebay/200212-5-ebay-steps-rookie-can-master-make-1500-one-hour.html and visited tradekey/alibaba for some research

    The only thing that you can learn from WF is how to scam people...

    It was great when it ran smoothly I did it for about 6 months and was ready to quit my job at one stage.

    Basically I traveled to China and made a couple contacts with clothing suppliers, Jeans/Shirts mostly.
    At first I was shipping the items directly to me, then I would pack, send myself for a small profit.

    Then I started selling on Ebay in bulk (packs of 100 shirts) and having them drop shipped from China, and gave my customers the option to select the color (20 red/ 10 blue etc) however the Chinese warehouse got so many orders wrong, It was a head ache, I was just giving partial refunds to customers for the inconvenience, and others would give me poor feedback.
    The money sounds great, but I was working 8 hours a day in a fulltime job where I didn't have time during the day to deal with ebay, then I would come home and work another 10 hours on Ebay, most of it fixing problems and apologizing to people.
    After my feedback dropped, so did my sales.
    Ebay and Paypal also don't like when you have a lot of customer problems, and they gave me grief constantly.
    Basically in the end it was not running smoothly enough to continue and I tried 2 different suppliers in China, the exact same problems, unless you are fluently bilingual with Mandarin or Cantonese so much information will get lost in translation.

    Even the company I work for now is a $700million business with production facilities in China, so many problems with our orders and we have staff there who speak perfect English/Mandarin.

    I was never scammed and there is definitely still money in buying products from China, but I would of done things much differently I tried to scale my business up to much too quickly and wasn't ready for the issues.
