Buy wholesale then sell on ebay

hafoolhafool subscriber Posts: 2
I am looking for a company to buy wholesale from and then sell on ebay. I found this one wholesaler distributor from
China at www.LDUcompany.com and I want to know if anyone here has bought from them before or if anyone knows anything
about them? I was thinking about trying some of the lighters they sell, http://www.liangdianup.com/lighters_1.htm and are
these lighters ok to sell on ebay?

    I think eBay will be just fine despite all their problems of late. This thread prompted me to read an S&P Report that I have access to. They say eBay has a strong balance sheet but faces notable competition. Well, I wouldn`t bet against eBay right now. In any event, S&P goes on to say that even though strategic decisions and management changes have been disappointing at times, they still like the stock. It`s currently trading around $15 with S&P`s 12-month target price outlook set at $23.
    From a marketing perspective, the idea of buying wholesale and then selling on eBay as a start-up seems archaic -- I don`t know, maybe that`s just me...

    You certainly raise some valid points and plenty of reasons for me to be bearish on eBay.
    From a user perspective as a seller of musical instruments, I could not be happier. Keep in mind that I never sold a thing on eBay prior to 2008. I think therefore my concept of "Back in the day on eBay." is somewhat skewed. Well, more like uninformed so, thanks for the insight.
    Should be interesting to see what develops for eBay going forward.
