I think we have all done at one time or another: While cleaning out the closet, we stumble across some weird antiques that you say to yourself: "I bet these are worth a few bucks". So you go on eBay, put up an auction, and sure enough, 5 days later you made $50! How easy was that? So you scavenge around the house finding more stuff to sell and make a good profit...until you run out of stuff to sell! Yes, I have done this. It felt good while it lasted.

But it does not have to stop there! In fact, you can make a lot more money, and it is just as easy as selling your great aunt\'s antique lamp. It is simple:

1) Buy products at wholesale prices

2) Promote products on eBay, Amazon Stores or even your own website

3) Sell products at a profitable price

4) Ship products to buyer

Profitable Price - Wholesale Price = PROFIT!

If you sell 10 products at $50 each and you paid $40 each for them, you make $100! You can simplify this scenario even more with dropshipping. Drop shipping is a way to buy products wholesale, but have the supplier send the item directly to the end customer rather than sending it to you first. In this case:

1) Promote products on eBay, Amazon Stores or even your own website

2) Sell products at a profitable price

3) Order item from dropshipper and have it directly shipped to the end buyer

Profitable Price - Wholesale Price - Dropshipping fee (minimal) = PROFIT!

Dropshipping is a little less profitable, but it is also less work, too! Now understand that finding wholesalers and dropshippers on the web (through a search engine) can be fairly trivial. But Buyer Beware! The biggest problem with the Online Resale Business is fraud. A lot of online wholesalers online are in the business of getting your money, and not shipping anything. Also, if you are looking for a particular item to sell, trusting your search engine to provide the best suppliers usually does not quite pan out.

Selling products online is easy, but having the right resources and trusted suppliers is essential for success! If affiliate marketing seems too intimidating for you and paid surveys don\'t quite bring in the cash that you are looking for, becoming a online resaler (or eBay Powerseller) may be the medium that you are looking for!

After spending close to two years reviewing wholesale and dropshipping directories, I have narrowed it down to three products (all unique in what they offer, but all very good, reputable and reasonably priced). Many other directory lists exist throughout the internet, but most of these are either littered with "middlemen", suppliers are not tested, or simply they are a copied subset of the directory companies I list below..
