So here’s a few of my recent purchases, I hope they inspire you to ‘Be On the LookOut’ #bolo
Randomly I came across FakeBake products in Boots* reduced to £7.50 each, they had 5 left so I bought them all and I even got 20% off with a voucher, so £6.00 each.
at the time of purchase, #116109 sales rank,
They each sold for £30.50 plus postage costs (I had to sell these merchant fulfilled rather than FBA) but all sold within 2 weeks.
– Amazon Fee £6.25
-My Hermes postage £2.80
= £19.44 profit x 5 £97.20
Now this below was the ultimate find, keep a look out for this beauty! Lovely Persian The (pronounced tea) by Crabtree & Evelyn, I was concerned that the sales rank being over #153110 that it would take ages to sell so I just bought the one! BIG MISTAKE!! It actually sold the very next day at £119.95 plus £3.99 postage! Obviously I was straight online trying to find and buy more, but all sold out! grrrr!
-£4.99 My Hermes signed for post
-£39.99 unit cost
= £60.96 profit margin!
I have to mention that I’m ungated to sell within the beauty category on Amazon, a category quite challenging to be ungated in, but not impossible, here’s a great article with some advice on how to be ungated if you already sell on Amazon or you could sell these items freely on eBay.
