I will tell you some wholesalers..
FIRST, I will just give you a list of several here..
There are so many.. But, before you buy, send me what you are thinking about buying..
Basically, you can get the items generally for about 30% of wholesale. If they do not list the items on the pallet, do not buy it.. Also, if it is more than 30% of wholesale by a good amount, do not buy..
The best thing to do is to call these companies and get on their email list.. Then, they will send you emails with the latest pallets of goods.. Anything that is name brand is generally good game and you can confirm its value on eBay by looking at the "completed items" history on eBay..
SECOND, I will explain, in general terms, the best way to obtain product to sell on eBay:
Generally, for almost any physical product, there are about 3 good ways to get product to sell on eBay:
1. Salvage / Surplus / Overstock / Returns
3. Buy on eBay, then Sell on eBay.
I don't recommend dropshipping or affiliate marketing, as I have done a bit of both and found them not profitable.. Simply put, everyone wants to do this when they first get into selling. I say this broad statement, because so far, out of about 17 people who have signed up for my coaching, about 14 of them said they wanted to "dropship".
The problem is dropshipping is more of a trick than a profitmaker. Basically, the companies who offer this type of selling are not interested in real sellers looking for real profit. Rather, they are looking for inexperienced sellers who will be duped into selling their products. I say this, because when I did a lot of research in the area of dropshipping and tried it myself, I found that their claims of "low prices" were false. I also found that the one I did use was only reliable about 50% of the time. I would sell a product and half the time, they would say it was not in stock.
So, though it appears to be easy, dropshipping ends up being a difficult way to make money.
BUY THEN SELL ON EBAY:
Simply go to any main category on www.ebay.com
, such as "DVDs" and then find the subcategory "Wholesale Lots". In there, you will find product in lots of 50, 100, you name it..
The trick is to not bid on the glamorous auctions at the top of the page, but the auction on the bottom that no one clicks on. Often, those are the real deals, where you can turn around and make a real profit selling each item individually..
Believe it or not, there are items ending all the time that are low priced.. This works well and can be a very profitable way to do business on eBay.
SALVAGE / OVERSTOCK / RETURNS:
This is probably the best way to make REAL money on eBay. From what I have done with this and from what I can tell, most of those making solid income on eBay are buying their product in this manner..
Basically, you can buy returns, overstocks, etc from chain stores like Sears, Walmart, Best Buy, etc. http://www.surplus.net
is a pretty good source for companies that offer such product..
For instance, this is a solid company that offers such product: http://www.amlinc.com/
Just look at the above links and do some searching and I think you will see what I mean..
You basically buy it for about 30 to 50 % of wholesale and can turn around and sell it for double on eBay.. The best is to buy "manifested" pallets of such product.. Manifested means it tells you what is actually on the pallet.. You can take that and do searches on eBay to see what it sells for..
I have done this several times.. Generally, you spend about $5000 or so at a time and you can buy product from China.. This is also a very large way to make REAL profit on eBay and many of the larger companies end up going this route.. So, a lot of the bigger companies on eBay do this, but it does have more risk and requires more preparation than the Salvage method..
Here is a great website for finding companies that sell this product: http://www.alibaba.com

I had sent an email from a different email address.(email@example.com
). I guess it may have gone to your bulk email folder.
The hardest thing for me is finding wholesalers and dropshippers, and what product I should sell. I basically want to make my living from the net. Right now I don't have another job. If you could tell me of some wholesalers and dropshippers that would help.
