I love trying different ways in making some good money on the internet and I have been successful so far with all of them and I'm doing this fulltime for a year now.
This time, I would like to branch out with selling physical products. Today I tried buying some products from my dropshipper. I know they are not the good people to buy some wholesale items from. I should buy direct from the manufacturers (which I will do later) or maybe my dropshipper is a manufacturer (not sure really). Well, I don't care about that now. What I care about is the result of this approach.
So here's what I did:
I ordered some sample items from a China based company because I'm thinking about buying some items to sell locally. I still need to learn how much time it will spend to get to my address and how much money (total) including custom tax will I be spending.
Ordered 5 items for $32.65 total + $4.9 shipping and insurance (I paid for the cheapest shipping which is a registered Mail). The item is shipped today and they provide tracking. I'm going to wait for it and I'll observe how much tax will I be paying.
TARGET MARKET: Local
Sell the items for profit.
If this goes well, then I'll order more products and sell more and advertise on the internet.
I HOPE TO GET SOME GOOD RESULTS TOO>
I'll keep this thread updated.
