Retail arbitrage may not sound very familiar, but you have probably done it without knowing. Have you ever sold some item either to a friend or online for more than you spent on it? That is retail arbitrage. Buying something and reselling it for more. This is a completely ethical and normal way to make money that is done every single day. The question of knowing what products to sell is key to this model. The answer is that you sell the items that you can mark up. You can sign up to sell products on Amazon right away and then you can get hunting for good products. Maybe you go to the store and find items in the clearance isle that are quality but just aren’t selling for some reason. Check on Amazon or Ebay right there in the store what those items would sell for. If there is a decent margin, then buy them. Many people buy products in bulk from overseas on Wish or Aliexpress and resell them in the USA. Production costs are so cheap in China, so you are more likely to make more money per purchase.
