To get cheap picture hosting, here are a few websites:
Regarding the websites I gave you,
I just looked at jdclosehouts, and it does not look like a dropshipping company at all. It shows pallets at prices of $800. You need to call them for manifests or ask them how to obtain manifest (list of items on pallets).
$800 is very reasonable number from my experience with a pallet. We are not talking about $800 of wholesale items, but rather probably more like $3000 of wholesale or $4000 of retail products for $800. So, you pay like 30% of wholesale..
TDW Closeouts appears to be selling pallets also of goods.. So, its not a dropshipper either. You need to call these places as they do not usually put their pallet lists online.. They want you to call, or receive a fax of the list of pallets, or request it by email or sign up with their email list.
So, you have to request, personally, for a list of their pallets with manifests..
WHAT TO DO AFTER CONTACTING AND GETTING MANIFESTS:
Write me back when you get a few manifests from them. Then, I can show you how to analyze the manifest to see if it will be a good value to buy.
HOW TO KNOW WHAT S A GOOD THING TO BUY:
I will show you how to figure it for yourself and how it all works when you get a few pallet manifests from these companies.. You will be amazed at how easy it is..
Then, I will show you how to protect your money, in the case of a company trying to send you substandard salvage..
Everything you say here is very good. I need to learn! Which is why I came to you. I also need to know the best places where I can get pictures hosted that won't cost me a lot. I can write up my own auctions, I just don't want to pay eBay for the extra pictures I like to show in my auction listings and have heard there are places where you can host your pictures for very little, I just don't know where they are.
Next, while I am willing to purchase an inventory, I need to know more about what is popular and what isn't and where to get it. I have been researching ever since I received this email from you and so far, many of these places are just like the dropshipping sites. They have inflated prices and a lot say you can resell their items on eBay. It's hard to find something where you can make a profit.
I agree about non-branded items. I do not want anything to do with those items.
It's late and I'm falling asleep. Hope to write more tomorrow and get more ideas.
