You need reliable distributors when you acquire stuff to sell online especially wholesale merchandise.
Numerous websites claim to have a huge list of wholesalers (or wholesale directory) that you can use to buy items to sell online; but how legitimate are those lists?

Why does the title say “STILL” make good money? The tone of this sentence is like it’s unlikely to be successful selling electronics online in a very small business.
The tone of the sentence is reflecting the myth about selling electronics online.
What’s the myth?
Many online selling coaches and pros caution small online sellers about selling consumer electronics online and advise them to leave it to the “big guys”.

All right, I admit it! I made mistakes when selling stuff online.
If you really want me to embarrass myself pointing out actual mistakes, so be it! Here we go: I made mistakes like not doing product research enough or holding items for too long or get a little emotional when dealing with bad buyers or…come on, isn’t that enough?!
But…there’s one mistake that I never made and as a result I’ve been always rewarded because of that.
In this post, I want to tell you not to make that mistake.
What mistake, Sean?
You just found out “a buyer” left you one or more low DSRs on eBay. Can you find out who left you low DSR?
It might look like to you that you can never figure out who that buyer was.
But in reality, it is possible to figure out who left low DSR.
The secret is revealed…
