I have heard camera's have been pretty successful.  Anybody had any luck with that?

Raun just gave you some great information. To add to his, I think you can also listen to podcasts about selling online like thrifting for profit, that kat radio podcasts too. Let us know if you meed more information. We are all here to help each other.

Sign up for Skip McGrath's free email newsletter (http://www.skipmcgrath.com/newsletters/) to start with.  At the end of each newsletter, he includes a short list of companies that sell wholesale.  You might find something in there worth playing with.  I've used a couple of companies from that list.  Then browse around his site for other free content to get started with.

You may also be interested in Lisa Suttora (http://www.LisaSuttora.com).  She has a lot of training stuff available about all different aspects of running an online ecommerce company.

Start with those and where they take you.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Ron, I am looking at buying wholesale, for resale.  Do you have any resources you can point me to?  Thanks!

Chris -- What type of business model are you looking to start?  Do you want to do wholesale buying for resale, buy items in retail stores, buy thrift store items, something else? 

Comment by Chris Moody on November 30, 2013 at 10:55am

Hello, I just joined this group!  I am interested in learning more about buying/selling on ebay.  I have a friend who makes a good living doing this.  Can anybody help me get started or point me to any good methods/books for this?  Thanks!

Today was my best day in profit on 1 item. 

I purchased a book today for 25 cents, sold it for $60.50.

Also, since I am exploring getting on Amazon, I need a good Amazon scanning program/device.  For various reasons (time won't let me get into all of them,) my phone isn't the best solution.  The options I have been looking at are around $250+ on average, with one being able to occasionally find one at $175.  It's a PDA + a Scanner.

Second garage sale I stopped at today had EXACTLY what I needed (minus a $5 charger that I will nab on Ebay on Monday) for $25.

It was a VERY blessed day, for sure!

Thanks, God and everyone else, for encouragement.

Way to go, Jeremy!  Good return!  Last weekend I found some curtain panels for $6 that are currently selling for about $70.  Pretty happy about that one too.  :)  Too bad there were only 4 of them.

Oh, and I did that in about 2-3 hours.
