Best item to buy bulk and resell for high profit

  • Muges Saturday, January 15, 2011 9:32 PM Reply
    Thinking about buying items in bulk and reselling them but wanted to know what DX items are popular and will sell for a good deal more than the bulk price?

    Links to items appreciated. Price not an issue.

    More so than where you live is how u plan on getting it to the public. ie. Do you have a store front, or a kiosk at the mall, or do you have a website that you will ship from here, or are you going to have a table at like a computer show or a traveling venue? I would have to say that their watches would have a good profit margin. but a kiosk or traveling venue would have good sales with their lighters and peripheral computer gadgets such as the bluetooth dongle that's like 1.80 us. I personally would have bought the phone jammers at the computer shows that I have gone to. The vendors at kiosks in the mall do awesome with those little remote controlled helicopters and racecars that come in those can containers.
    To do well in areas where there is actual interaction with the consumer, I would have to say that items under 10 dollars retail (hence it would have to cost you about 5 dollars for a good profit) would give you biggest volume in sales.
    I have been in the retail industry for 22 yrs. so I have some insight into how and what people are willing to buy. I've found that if I price an item at lets say 9.49 one month and then price it for 10.99 the next month, that same item will sell 4 times as often the first month. Now my profit has fallen by about 12 percent, but I have increased my sale of that item 4 fold so the volume has outweighed the loss in per sale profit.
    This is just my opinion though. take it for what its worth. good luck

    Thanks everyone for all your help. It is going to be for an ebay store. Thinking about starting with mostly small items around the under $2 mark to lift my feedback and earn a nice little proffiit on the side. In saying that, the more expensive the item the more profit ill be making.

    Whatever you're going to re-sell on eBay, just make sure you have the goods on hand before listing them. DX doesn't keep everything they list in stock (even the description page says it's in stock). It could take a very long time before the items become available, and yea, don't forget the potential shipping delays. If you list them too soon, both you and your buyers will get caught in the middle and you're usually the one to lose.

    Also If You will be selling On Ebay You have To Do Reasearch On the items that your selling beacuse sometimes there things that costs here $1.50 and on ebay its cheaper plus with freeshipping, You have To do always reaserch on every item you wish to sell on Ebay that is key for get good sells ;)
