Buy Merchandise to Resell on eBay from Online Wholesalers
If you like auctions, check out Liquidation.com. This is a massive all-auction Web site that has incredible deals on all types of merchandise. One of the great features about this site is that most individual auctions provide a link to the manifest — a list of every piece of merchandise in the lot. If you click the View Manifest link at the top of the auction page, you see a piece-by-piece list of the items included in the lot you’re bidding on.
It’s best to buy from vendors closer to your geographic area because after you add the shipping fee, you might be paying too much for your lot. Liquidation.com has a shipping calculator to help you know ahead of time how much your shipping might be.
