Selling Used Toys on eBay - does it still work?

It’s Time to Rethink Christmas

retail arbitrage 2019Above: A very recent sourcing trip. I paid average 68% below retail, and I had help with where to go and what to buy.

Dear Reader:

Every Fall, I get an influx of emails from Amazon sellers in a panicasking "What can I sell online to make money this Christmas?

The problem: By then, it's too late for most sellers to source products for the Holiday.

Instead, right now (Summer '19) is the time for you to start sourcing for products to resell Christmas/Q4 shopping season. This is whether you sell on Amazon or eBay (or anywhere else).

Why now?

Because every Summer, retail chains clear out their inventory to make way for new releases and stock for Christmas.

That means there are incredible bargains to be had by savvy online merchants like you and me.

In fact, for the past 2 weeks, I've been grabbing deeply discounted merchandise in stores (and online) at up to 75% off.

What to Sell on Amazon to Make Money in 2019

Endless searches in stores & online stops today

Can't find items to resell on Amazon?

Dear Reader:

It's a crucial time of year for you - Summer. Why?

Because right now, all retailers are announcing major discounts to boost sales. They're competing for your dollar, due to the traditional summer sales slump. They're also clearing the shelves for "Q4" (the October through December shopping season). That means they need to liquidate their stock in order to make room for all the millions of new products coming through their stores.

More importantly - and I've been saying this for years - is that online sellers like us can capitalize on these up-to-90% off sales by:

  1. "Holding" those sale items for a couple months until Q4, when Amazon prices really skyrocket, and/or
  2. Finding some quick flips to by reselling the item on Amazon for a nice profit.

The problem is: How can you find those items easily? [click to continue…]

The Best Amazon Seller Software and Tools

Review of Amazon seller software and tools

I reviewed the best Amazon seller software and tools on the market for 2019 and organized it according to business growth needs.

Before we jump right in, I have one word of caution: No software or tool is perfect. 

And: this is a brand new and crazy industry. A firm that I find reputable and trustworthy one day can ‘disappear’ the following year. So do your homework, take advantage of free trials if they’re available, and ask your peers for their recommendations before you spend your hard-earned money.

That said, here is a crazy long list of the best Amazon seller software and tools for all levels.

Warning: You Can’t Rely on Just Amazon

This is probably my most important blog post this year.

Meet (former) Amazon seller Nida Kazmi, below. CNN recently reported that she was making $1,000/month in profit when Amazon inexplicably shut her down:

(I'll talk more about Nida in a moment.)

See, Amazon is still the #1 place I sell products, BUT it's been known to suspend sellers - or warn them of possible suspension - for wrong reasons.

If it hasn't happened to you yet, it could in the future. [click to continue…]
