I think it would be pretty easy to find something that is a bargain (most things that are listed poorly sell for very little money) then to resell it for a higher price. Am I way off? I know eBay takes a small percent as commission, but I think this can be done with almost any product (i.e. baseball cards). This could be a fun hobby/way to make a little side income if you have the time. Anyone have any comments?
The problem is, you need an inventory which means that you are either stuck with what you can't sell or eat the cost of the product. I think it can be done easily but making a huge profit is probably not realistic unless you have a legitimate business plan.
