This message is mostly towards all the business fatcats out there, thought I'd see what I could find out. Anyway, over the past couple of months, i've been seeing those fancy ipods going for fairly high prices on electronic marketplaces and I thought to myself: "Gee, I sure would like to sell a couple of them and make myself a few pennies." So I was off, like a bright eyed youngster, on an e-mission (not emission; Electrionic Mission) to find out where I could buy some of these fancy products in bulk at cheap wholesale prices. Then it hit me like a bus: I didn't have the least idea where to look. I tried an online source called Alibaba, but I only seemed to find scammers. I have since backed away from this frivilous persuit and realized that it was a silly get rich quick scheme. However, becoming a wholesaler is definetely something I would be interested in after my schooling and I was just wondering if I could get some tips on how one would get started. Do you contact the company direct to ask for them, or do you contact a middleman who caries a variety of products, and how would you find out who is a middleman for the product your looking for? How is the payment arranged, how is the product shipped out, how do you find customers? I want to know anything and everything. If your a businessperson and you can tell me anything, you'll be forever remembered. Thanks.
