If you do 25$ increments, Count.Me.In.Coach!
Yeah, I'm in, assuming it's not 3000per color. Would want split 50/50 black brown. Figure we'd have to pay the person who orders, splits and delivers for their time too.
Sounds good! Someone take charge and put together a commit to purchase list!
25$ increments seems to work for most.
I vote yes!
I emailed them earlier to see if we can get samples before we commit. I asked if they would make the order 70% black, 30% brown. Mix of waxed and unwaxed. Sizes from 24" - 36".
I was thinking of buying all 3000, organizing my stash, and then selling the rest at $2 per pair with a 4-5 pair minimum.
However, with the interest here, a split would work too.
Just so you know, aliexpress isn't known for their customer service. Even if they say "sure" to that request, you're 75% unlikely to get your request.
I had a friend who would flip with aliexpress back when, said it was really hard to communicate and service was pretty much nil.
For you guys that do this full time, how do you make this business profitable. I just set up a excel sheet to follow my expenses and profit, and it's made it a bit discouraging. Assuming that 13% of fees goes to eBay and PayPal, and I have to pay roughly 15%(assumed number) on taxes, selling 40k in sales profits me 22K(assuming I spent 6k on sourcing)
Do most of you have llcs, can someone break down how they started?
That doesn't sound discouraging, that sounds pretty damn good to me!
The only way to make it profitable = Buy as low as possible, sell as high as possible + give good service so the buyers who spent as much as possible will want to do it as often as possible.
Good point, those numbers were a bit hypothetical to see how my taxes turned up. But in terms of going full time and attempting to make the most out of it- Can I realistically make a career/living out of this?
I already understand( or try to) the importance of budgeting and finances, so there is no worry there.
some illustrious company I find myself in there. Thanks bro, really needed that pick-me-up today.
How does everyone feel about the non-existent mannequin look?\
It looks pretty damn good to me. I was thinking about mimicing this. I've seen it on many store websites. It would add a bit of time to my processing, but not too much as I've played around with it before.
I like the context a shirt and tie add, but it is sort of neat.
