Drop me an PM. I started with $400. But be warned, the less you have in capitol the more you'll have to spend in time.

If you're looking to make money on the internet, i wouldn't recommend paintball products. The market is already flooded and the markup on paintball stuff is extremely small as a result. My wifes sister makes a lot by buying name brand cloths from garage sales and sells them on ebay for a pretty good profit.

I do antiques on the side, furniture, car parts, ect... Remember there is a buyer for everything. Example, there were some 50s lights at an auction. I didnít have a number to buy, but some woman bought 10 of them for $120. Those lights will sell for about $110 per. That is almost 1000% markup if I did my math right, compared to a 10-15% markup on pb stuff.

Welcome to why there are so many paintball businesses, and so many people who don't know the first thing about business running them.

If it's what you really want to do, go for it. But expect long hours and few rewards.

Really the only difference between an expresso stand and paintball sales is that and expresso stand makes money. If you really want it, go for it... worst that could happen is you're out $1000 and your time.

Actually it capitalizes automatically if you just press caps lock to prevent annoying posts.

How could an online store possibly allow you to enjoy what you are selling? There is no field to interact with customers and see the games happen. The best way to enjoy an online store is to make a large amount of cash on the products you are selling. If your profit margins are slim you will just become frustrated with the products you sell.

My advice is that you should buy another espresso stand, pay someone to man it, and expand your mini-empire! Muwahahahaha! You have to sell what you know.
