i sell on my website but it isnt quite finished yet. www.freewebs.com/sproducts this isnt going to be the site i am going to use. i am just using freewebs as a html editor to make a site then i am transfering the html to a normal site like sproducts.com

i want to start selling on ebay, any idea what i should use to put up bulk amounts of items?

Ebay has raised the prices on there stores etc to where if you arn't clearing a 30% profit it really isn't worth it.

It looks like a lot of items being sold are from companies that have MAP pricing. If he's undercutting those costs he isn't allowed to advertise the price.

Some other stores run this way, where the customer has to specifically ask for the price. This way, he isn't 'advertising' anything.

This is, of course, assuming he is getting these items from a standard distributor and the manufacturer is aware that he is selling them.

To relate this to paintball, Tippmann has (or had) map pricing set for all their guns. When I was still running a store we weren't allowed to post price signs for anything under a certain dollar amount. Pbgear used to uncut those prices a lot and Tippmann eventually stepped in to change that.

You will definately need a professional looking website if you want anyone to trust the site. If you need help with the site, let me know as I can get you a domain but you will have to pay me for it... I can also help you code the site but once again we will have to work something out..

Good luck

So is this one of those things you hear on the radio where people can make "$5,000" a month without ever having to buy/see/store the products they're selling?

No, dude. Nobody has answered you yet so I'm assuming we don't know.

You started a business without a business plan? Flying by the seat of your pants doesn't usually cut it in business.

I wish you good luck.

I am guessing you fell for one of those turnkey business schemes...waste of money. If you want to have a successful business there is no template to do it otherwise everyone would have their own business.

Yep, starting a business without a plan usually ends kinda like this:

I'm curious as to whether you have a business license, a sales and use tax code/resale license, etc.

Careful. I asked those same questions of a kid trying to expand his lawn care business and the general consensus here is that I was over the line...

There's evidently a lot of arm chair commando's who don't think that sort of thing is needed for a "small" business.
