Wheeling and dealing is making a comeback, though most of the wheeling is done from the comfort of your own home or office and all the dealing is handled by some sophisticated online systems. The buy-and-sell economy of the internet has eclipsed the physical retail world and it’s allowing everyone to join in, not just brand names and big chain stores. If you want to get your slice of the online pie, here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Know your sources
Perhaps the most obvious place to buy and sell things online is eBay. It will definitely be one of the best places to sell, but when it comes to sourcing goods, it pays to build knowledge of a much more diverse range of online marketplaces. First, you need to build an idea of some of the most profitable goods for buy-and-sell businesses. Video games, toys, rare books, clothing, and sporting equipment are all markets worth considering. But finding individual sources for each kind of item as well as the online marketplaces is the best way to get the deals with the most potential. For instance, for books, besides Amazon, eBay, and similar spots, you should look at Abe Books, Swapbooks, and Used Book Central.
