I buy surplus items 10 pallets or so at a time. I get fantastic pricing that allows me to sell for a very low price but still make a fair profit. Some people do sell knockoffs, which is against eBay policy. You have to consider though that when you go to the store and buy a shirt for 50% or 75% on clearance that the store is still probably making money on the transaction. Another thing... Look at discount stores like TJ Max or Value City. They sell many items quite a bit cheaper than they can be purchased elsewhere.

The sellers on ebay are acting as agents of wholesale suppliers and dropshippers who buy the items in bulk and offer cheap prices to the ebay sellers in return, which they forward to the buyers with a small commission amount for them. Here's some tips for You to sell on ebay : http://www.makemoneyonebay.tk

You just have to watch what you buy. You also have to know what you are willing to pay. Myself I rarely give over 5 dollars for any DVD I buy. I also sell on Ebay and my items come from Flea Markets and Church sales and friends often will give me things to sell. Stores have insurance, employees, utility payments, and they look for a profit. On Ebay, our fees are low in comparison and you can with consistent sales make some money for your bank account. I combine Ebay with Half.com and they keeps things going ok for me. Just need to spend a bit more time on the store since I have not done so since before Christmas.

Well Ebay is for bidding, It goes to the highest bidder when the time run out. You may see an item .99 but in the store its 15.00. the reason being is the give people a chance to bid on the item starting with the lowest price...Sometimes if you catch it at the right time You can get your items really cheap You also will know if it's original or fake if it's not listed on the page, if all else fails you can always send the seller a email and ask them directly....

You have to be very careful about buying designer stuff on EBAY. If somebody's selling a Rolex for 20 bucks, somethings wrong. You have to take a careful look at a sellers feedback, before forking out a lot of money. I would never buy anything autograhed either. Even when it comes with a certificate of authenticity, that can be faked too. Caveat emptor!!
