First of all – let’s start with the basics; where to you find products to sell on your website? Well, in this day and age, there are literally an unlimited amount of places in which you can start finding products to sell on your website.
You want to make sure that you are buying “quality products” for your website, and not just any website.
Retail Stores – Finding Products for Your Website
Whether you own an EBay business, EBay Store, E-commerce website, or even a blog that sells things; you always want to make sure that you have quality products to offer for your website and to your customers.
One way to get guaranteed brand new products is to go to a retail store – either brick & mortar or online and find a product that can in turn give you profit. For example, if you want to sell sports jersey for 30$ a pop – then you’re going to have to go to a retail store that sells them from less than that amount – and an amount that can net you profit.
Now, that method’s barely a business – but you’ll get your feet wet on how you can find products to sell on your website
Going on Craigslist, Kijiji, or Thousands of Other Websites
There are thousands of websites that offer the same service that Craigslist does. Simply go to Craigslist or a classified ads resource: Myspace, and EBay have one, and simply search for products that can potentially give you profit on your website or online store.
It’s that simple – although research is the hardest part of selling online – it is also the most important and most profitable part; you can earn tons of cash by doing your research and finding a product to sell on your website.
Wholesalers and Dropshipping
Wholesalers and dropshippers are constantly online and searching for people to sell all their products to. First of all, it is important to know what a Wholesaler is:
A wholesaler is either a person or company that sells you products by the bundle. They will also sell you this “bundle” of products for a cheaper price. For example, if you want to sell baseball cards for 20$ each, you will want to buy a bundle of 20 baseball cards for 200$. In return you’ll buy the cards for 10$ each and get 10$ profit for each card you sell.
If you sell the whole bundle – you’ll make 200$ in profit. It’s that simple, and the more you sale – the more wholesale you’ll be able to buy.
Dropshippers are similar to this fashion, except you do not have to buy bundle, and they ship directly to your customer. Both are viable solutions to an online business!
