    I mean no insult whatsoever. But a reply like this tells me what i need to know: You are just another broker. No have anything but access to hundred's of thousands of products. That is nice but reading here for a while also tells me that it will not work that way.

    It's the lazy way. Tell me what you want and I source it for you. Maybe you like the price, maybe not.

    I think what people here want to see is some initiative. Put in some effort and create a site were the guys can look at. Or, at least, make up a list with pic's of profitable items that actually can be imported and sold off without hassle. State shipping method's and estimated prices for various shipping methods.
    This will put something in their hands for comparison. Different Countries, different currencies and pricing. So it may be expensive for someone from the US but the guy in Sweden thinks it's doable.
    Don't expect anyone to keep asking for certain things.

    Otherwise, why would anyone start buying from you ? Might as well buy from a Chinese broker on alibaba.

    I know it is a lot of effort to first find the right items and make up a list. By the time you are done with it some or many of the items will not be available anymore. Been there.

    I agree that having someone close to the source who is reliable and honest does work wonders for any start up biz, even if it's a bit more expensive.

    Just put in some effort and you will see how much more and better responses you'll get

    ledflash.jpeg Or, if you do not want to put in the effort, do it like this and sell 1 batch at a time. ledflash.jpeg

    LED Flashlight w/ cree 3 W. Comes with sturdy molded plastic case, 1 wallcharger, 1 carcharger, 1 adaptor for AAA batteries, 1 18650 re-chargable battery. Zoom-able, water resistant. MOQ ( insert your MOQ for most efficient shipping ). Cost per piece incl. shipping to ( insert Countries and cost )

    Btw. If you can not supply this particular item for about 6.50 USD ( excluding shipping or 7.80 including shipping to any major port in US or Europe - MOQ of 250 pieces ) you are not in the right place.

    First Thank you for taking the time to answer and being innovative by offering way to process... In all forum and community it is highly appreciated. My post is about People who Already have a shop or online store which means they Know what they want and they do not expect someone to tell them what they could sell. This post targets people who have maybe just opened a shop or already having having a shop.

    I am not sure you have already contacted Alibaba, depending on the products you are looking for they can be very hard to contact and they can take ages to answer you. What's more if you are not over their MOQ they do not really care about you.

    Here I ask people to tell me what they need... Which means then on my side inquiring for them, do catalogs and price lists... I am not sure you have already made catalogs and price list (which includes looking for the best prices, dealing with Chinese suppliers etc...). It takes a HUGE time. Call it the way you want but "lazy way" is not the most appropriate! Here I am not giving the same products to everybody and try to convince them by whatever way that it is THE product to sell!

    Here I give the opportunity to client to just sit back and wait for an answer from me after with all they need we have talked... Look at all the answers on this post and tell me what you would consider these answers as: "can you give me prices list please...". My post stands in 3 lines and the last one is "TELL ME YOUR BUSINESS, ANSWER GUARANTEED". In all the answer I got, NOBODY told me about these SIMPLE information so i guess they are not willing to get any answer and doing business...

    I think I have already answered this... Here I do not say to people what to sell but "for which item do you need the best price and SERVICE!". Very often we forget the quality of the service when we buy something. As you know here people are from all around the world so as you might know prices are not the same everywhere... the same for shipping.

    If people think I can bring them things they will contact me. For people who did not understand the post. I DO NOT HAVE ANY ALREADY MADE PRICE LISTS. TELL ME WHAT YOU NEED AND I WILL TRY MY BEST TO FIND THE BEST PRICE.
    SOME (among others ) differences between me and Alibaba:
    - Help people in their business
    - accept quantities (MOQ as they call it) that would not bother with.
    - possibility for you to sit back and get very interesting (if not the best) prices with no effort
    - quick answer
    - "understandable" english speaking person to do the transition between them and chinese (if they don't speak chinese): people who have already dealt with foreigner language know the time they gain by not having to explain things 10 times so that the person understand => gain of time.
    - Exchange and get ideas of improvement for their shops with someone who has a wide angle of available products (when you deal with lots of suppliers you can get ideas you would have never thought about)
    - etc...

    If people think about it they will see more advantages in this post... If people know what they want I can help them, if they don't I am not sure I can. If they see an opportunity here they will contact me because they know where they are going with their business

    I totally agree with you and I am sure people who do business understand and share this opinion.

    All the best,

    Nick

    Hi Nick

    as I said, I meant no insult. I know exactly what you are talking about.
    But look at the post's you got back. Look at all the other post's in similar threads.

    Alibaba, IMO, sucks. Everything you said is fact. Hard to communicate, in many cases high MOQ's and at the end, IF you finally make a deal you'll never know what you'll get. If you get any.

    Not having a list with available products and prices turns people off. They do not want to think about what to sell - especially when it comes to ebay. They just want to buy cheap and sell with profit. Most people don't care what they sell as long as it is legal and easy cheesy.

    Finding profitable items is not as easy anymore as it used to be. That is your challenge as a wholesaler and wholesale is what you want to do.

    Your approach is understandable considering the sheer volume of available goods but will not work on this forum.

    Wish you all the best

    PM me with the products that you have easy access too. I have multiple internet store in all kind of niches, and have friends that do the same thing. If your price are interesting we might buy a lot. The more products you have access too the more interesting it is to us.

    Can you guarantee the quality? Do you speak Mandarin?
