    Okay so I had an idea that may or may not work. If it doesn't, no big deal. If it does, it could be a good start up idea. Anyway, my idea is sort of based off of that thread that talked about selling through you amazon associate link on CL. Except instead of selling through the link and facing a ban, here's what I thought:

    1: List an ad for an item at the crossed out amazon price (or respond to a wtb)
    2: Get someone to buy it
    3: Buy the item through your own affiliate link and have it shipped straight to them (free shipping would work better)
    4: Earn profit from both selling a little higher and commission

    Now I don't know if you can purchase through your own affiliate link (and if you can't you could always partner with someone), and I don't know if you can ship to a different address without gifting, but if you can then I could see making to easy money to fund other ventures.

    As for the fact that you're selling higher than amazon, well, in the other thread people still had people looking to buy at the price higher than in their affiliate link.

    Please do offer critiques/insights. And if it doesn't work then just slap it down :p
