    Hello,

    I can get phones at cheap prices. I check on ebay, popular samsung phone, the cheapest on ebay is $40 more expensive than what I can get. You think I can make profit in the ecommerce business, especially mobile phones? You think this would work?

    Thanks.

    Phone niche is fully packed and there is thousands of resellers , it will be very difficult to get in, but if its really as you say, that you can get REAL phones not FAKES cheaper then average, then I have question - HOW? Is it stolen or is it carded?
    You can give a try, but if you dont have at least average sellers account on eBay, you will get only scam buyers, which will buy your phones from fake accounts and you will get scammed.

    Is this a $50 phone or $500 phone? Because $40 on a $500 phone is not enough margin to turn a profit after eBay fees and fraud risk.

    Are these real phones or fake ones? If you can get legitimate phones which are not stolen and blacklisted it could be viable.

    Of course this would work. As long as you maintain this phone supply chain you'll make a profit.
