- We took better pictures! To accomplish this we stuffed the boots with newspaper, laced them up, and gave them a quick polish
- We researched the name of this particular boot (which turned out to be "Jobmaster")
- We weren't looking for a quick sale (even though we got it)
While we admit that the ROI isn't the best here, $1.56 a minute sounds like pretty good pay to us! In our time as resellers we have also sourced remotes, cosmetics, perfumes, clothing, and electronics from eBay to flip. We typically stay away from large lots that are targeted at resellers, however. If the stuff was really that profitable they'd be selling it themselves....
So there you have it! Sourcing without ever leaving your couch! Or your chair at work ;)
