OK- been lurking and researching for a while now- only coming up with these
damn wholesale scams and crappy swap-meet products. I want to know how the
big boys do it- selling computer equipment, NAME BRAND, NEW. How/where are
they able to do this? I know it takes a LONG time and a TON of work making
decent money from ebay- BUT- if I can pull in some extra cash each month to
offset the mortgage- I'LL DO IT!

Can someone explain how the LEGIT systems work, where they get the products
from, how they get the manuf. to drop ship or agree to allow them to
wholesale with no minimum to buy, etc. Again, I'm talkin about NAME BRAND
LEGIT stuff here...
Thanks
D

I dunno about that stuff... How exactly do you get this stuff? Do you have
agreements from companies that prove this is legit and not stolen
merchandise? The web site itself REEKS of scam- anyone using graphics like
that, no credit card processing, etc- I just can't trust. I would never buy
anything RETAIL from that web site- so why would I buy wholesale? I don't
think so... I am looking for the BRAND NEW stuff anyways...

Can ANYONE give me some LEGIT info here?

you asked for something legit. i gave it to you. i've done business with
them on ebay on two occasions; they are very reliable.

if you don't want to do that, fine. but don't act like i didn't try to help
you, buttnugget.

they will be willing to set up a commercial account for you.
To sell you wholesale with no minimum would be quite stupid
on their part, however, so it should not be expected.

What makes you think there are no minimums? Contact some manufacturers
directly and ask about becoming a dealer or wholesaler.

Hey- didn't mean to ruffle your feathers! If you trust that, and feel
comfortable doing bsiness with them- GREAT! I, for one, do not trust them,
and would never do business with them. I was just stating that I want to do
business with the manufacturer itself- one who honors warranties and
returns- not a fly-by-night gig. You can't tell me that they honor
warranties and are fully legit when they don't even KNOW what they are
sending you, or what you are ordering when you order a 'box of electronics
or computer parts'- that's just not what I was looking for.

And lose the attitude- buttnugget

I was just assuming- because it doesn't seem like they could sell a certain
amount of things on ebay. I'm just trying to figure out how this exactly
works, and all the strings attached. So- you're suggesting THERE ARE
minimums? How do these guys do it then? Do they list at multiple auction
sites as well?
Thanks

If they are getting brand-new items from the manufacturer,
they are retailing them. That means that you contact various
manufacturers, express interest in retailing their products,
and ask for information.

But...if you carefully read a lot of those eBay auctions,
you'll see that they're selling refurbished items.

I've worked with pc's for awhile, have read ebay stories on pc auctions
(systems and parts) and it sounds like selling this type of merchandise on
ebay can become a nightmare. Not to mention that the auction market is
saturated with sellers. I thought about it but ended up not doing it. To
many headaches and scams. So now i sell non technical, non-electric
proprietary "stuff".

Good luck D

If you have to ask, then you are not cut out to do it. It does take hard
work and initiative resourcefulness, and you're not going to get the answers
by posting the question here. This isn't something that going to be handed
to you for free -- you have to go out and figure out on your own like the
rest of us did.

The computer industry's not a nice thing, there's nearly no margin left with
all the games played by the larger corporations. Several of the major
players burned their own vendors trying to go direct and then they stopped
playing fair.

I had a retail computer store for years but when the margins were gone and I
found that through pricewatch.com and buy.com I could beat my distributor
prices I started selling hardware at cost and paying the bills with service
contracts.

Then I quit and had two 30 yard dumpsters worth of "stock" to fill a hole
somewhere with.

D-

So as not to be cliche, Rick hit the head on the hammer. You need to do the
research and see what it is that people want. Look for things that have
mutliple bidders. Look for hot selling items. Think like a male bidder,
think like a female bidder, what would they want? What do they bid on? Make
phone calls to maufacturers, wholesales. Send emails, ask others for selling
info. It boils down to research, research, research. This kind of
information gathering can't be found off a book at your local Barnes and
Noble. Been there, done that.

It's actually an accurate heads-up. Anybody who has a great wholesale
or less-than-wholesale source has worked hard to get it and is not going
to share it. If it was easy to make big bucks on Ebay, everybody would
be doing it. It's not easy.

No, not true at all. Getting involved with a buxom female seller can
cause your system to acquire all sorts of nasty viruses, unless you have
really first class virus protection. It can also generate substantial
penalties, if the seller turns out really to be not a seller at all, but
an agent for safeharbor out looking for male bidders trying to locate
female sellers.

I'll buy that, with the addition that she must have extraordinarily
high standards in men, which standards she will inexplicably drop when
she meets me.

See http://www.tinaja.com/auct01.asp for some guidelines.

What you see are often distress situations involving auctions,
bankrupctys, extreme cash flow binds....

But probably mostly stolen or money laundries.

One final time: Wholesale ANYTHING does not give you remotely enough
margin for successful eBay sales. eBay prices are typically well under
wholesale.

Dropshipping is ludicrous because it is more fingers in a very small
pie.

eBay success depends upon finding deep distress situations and enhancing
them with special expertise from your personal value added.

Wholesale or less than wholesale sources are utterly and totally useless
on eBay.

You have to seek out staggeringly less than wholesale sources.

True for the most part. There are a few niches, though. Not enough to make a living, but plenty to make extra spending money for little work. Seek out your own expertise if that's your goal.

If you're trying to make a living, run from eBay. They do not care about individual sellers, and that will bite you someday. Guaranteed.
