Section 5 Intro

In this video I discuss why wholesaling products from Alibaba in China is a much better option than wholesaling in the U.S. The main reason Alibaba is better is because of the lower MOQ (minimum order quantity) and lower per-unit cost.

Why Use Alibaba to Find Your Products

How to Find Great Wholesalers

In this video we will review what a typical wholesaler email response will be. We then talk about what information is most important to look for in a wholesaler email. We do this through example by narrowing down three potential wholesalers to one that is the best fit for what we are looking for.

Lastly we discuss what to send in an email reply back to the wholesaler if we are interested in ordering a sample from them.

Responding to Wholesaler Messages

In this video we calculate the profit margin of a product we are considering selling on Ebay. We choose a wooden tungsten ring from our supplier's price list and use Ebay's completed listing tool to make an educated guess as to what our final selling price will be.

We then input our final price estimate, cost per unit, $2 postal fee and $1.50 shipping supplies fee into the profit margin calculator to discover our true profit margin.

Profit Margin Example
