    You also have to take into account the process of dealing with problems with buyers, and then shipping them out as well. Even still it seems relatively interesting. Would like to see where this thread goes..

    It's highly profitable, that's why WalMart does it

    If the price is right and you find the right product import is highly profitable.

    Would it work to try selling to independent flower shops too?
    There are only four sports: bullfighting, motor racing, mountaineering, and troll hunting; all the rest are merely games.

    Sure, but with such low product cost, if you even comp a few customers, it's not even going to put a dent into your profit and that's with full comp. You can keep customers happy sometimes with partial discounts etc..

    The right product, one that's not all over ebay, and other places. It needs to a be a tiny market, with high demand.

    Sure, but I suspect the flower shop would want it partially lower price, so he can dump it at retail price. Also you have to go door to door in those instances.

    I think the ability to sell a couple dozen in one pop would be worth consideration.

    you need to stay small, to keep shipping costs down.

    I bought one electrical network tester for myself, and had a lot of people want them. ordered 25, sold at a slight up charge, made money.

    Like you mentioned, you gotta stay in the grove of sales.

    I was making carbon fiber stuff for a very short amount of time. Tried getting chinese to make my stuff and stamp it out. Had a potential huge problem with customs for the one product haha.

    Carbon fiber stuff in huge bulk like bicycle parts is insane the margins involved. People are buying in bulk and selling the exact same shit in the us for more because people hate buying from china on ebay with ching-lish write ups.

    Often thought about doing this myself. Researched a lot into it but the amount of terrible stories of scamming I ended up steering clear. If your friend has had positive dealings with a particular supplier then I be be inclined to use them. As mentioned above however, stick to small items (easy to ship).

    Here is a thread I started on LP4 that should help you. 'Buying in Bulk' from Alibaba.com Businesses
