When I tell people I import products from overseas and sell them back in the States for a profit, they immediately think one of two things…
2. If they’re not so traveled, they usually jump to the conclusion that I’m importing big shipping containers from China full of iPhone cases, power cords, and electronics that will likely break in three months.
Which one is true?
Importing is something I do on the side…at home…whenever I get a new idea for something to import or feel up to shopping.
I don’t bring in big shipping containers. And I don’t bring things back from my travels in my suitcase, either. I use a big website—a “mega site,” I like to call it—to order items that I like and they come to me by regular mail. I can then list the items for sale on eBay, Craigslist, Amazon, and even Facebook and ship them to customers.
You can do this too. All you need is $50 to get started and you could be earning $2,000 to $3,000 per deal.
This is a business you can set up before you move overseas…before you even leave your job.
I love importing products and goods that are hard to find here in the U.S. Or products with big mark-ups where (I think) the middleman is taking far too much for his share of the pie.
“It’s not that my prices are good,” I once heard another importer say. “It’s that the prices these big companies charge for the same item are bad.”
Here’s an example…
Bento boxes and tiffins are really popular in Japan and India but not seen so much here in the U.S. (though the popularity of these lunchboxes is slowly growing in popularity among parents with small kids because the lunch program at most public schools leaves a lot to be desired).
I could go online and pay $30 to $50 for a good one. Or I could order straight from the manufacturer in the country where they’re produced and pay less than $8.
You can import Turkish scarves, Indian jewelry, Latin American weaving, and Egyptian cotton…before you ever leave home.
The key to this business is finding the right product and selling it for a profit. You don’t even need a website anymore.
