Hello,

I have searched the forum and cant find anything so i thought to make one.
Moved to Germany 2 years ago and still looking for informations.
Thinking to start reselling Apple products cuz I already have some money in my pocket and from what I see there is high demand but i dont know market here, does anyone have experience, what do you resell ? From my experience right now, Mountain-bikes are doing pretty well here, am I wrong ?!

Any other Marketplaces except : Ebay.de and Ebaykleinanzeigen and Mobille.de for cars ( i realy dont wont to buy cars cuz i dont know nothing about them)?

Thank you and hope you are doing well : ) !

Hello,

Yes, Bikes are not bad but you are better off with Apple products for sure, Tablets and Mobiles doing very well in my experience!

Before you go into cars maybe you should think about flipping rims, people here love them but research first, I don't know where you live and what the market locally looks like! The best return you get is from PORSCHE rims! Audi is also not Bad!

Other Apps then those you mentioned are = Shpock, Kalaydo and Quoka for stuff and for cars autoscout24.de, auto.de, webauto.de, pkw.de, carzilla.de .

here you can sell cars with motor damage = Bundesweiter Service Auto Ankauf mit Motorschaden Inkl.Abholung

Hi Vanderbilt,

thank you for your replay.

Where do you buy phones,tablets and other Apple products ?
I really dont wont to go with cars because i know nothing about them. But rims, that is a very good idea especially for Porsche because there are so many of them. I live near Frankfurt

Thank you for sharing information, i will try those marketplaces.

Check if who else is doing what you would like to resell.

If they are doing a poor job in terms of marketing and customer service or if you can set a better price go for it.

But of course, do a lot of due diligence to make sure on all of that.

apply a lot of knowledge from this thread = GOLD! - A Hustler's Guide To Buying And Selling Anything (Part 1)


Apple products need a lot of flipping, if you are very good you earn around 50€ and more per item!!! So you need a lot of cash. Hustling in this market needs a lot of sellers that need fast cash, so you get the discount, it can be very hard sometimes!

@Hijena1 - you need to do a lot more research. The link @Vanderbilt mentioned above is a good start.

No one here is going to do the work for you.

My recommendation: learn a lot more before jumping into business. Your current approach shows enthusiasm, which is good, but lack of knowledge.

Yes you are right. I was just trying to collect information.

Yeah, but your mindset is flawed. I recommend you study business a bit and come back. Did you read @MJ DeMarco 's books?

Read them. That way your efforts will gain you a much larger return, a lot faster.

Your questions are:
  • What should I sell?
  • How can I buy it be cheap?
  • Where can I sell it?
You're at point 0 without a modicum of effort. If you want to be serious about business, then start by reading a book or two and then revisit the concept of buying and selling product.

I have read both books but i am going to read them 2-3 times again.
Bought first Iphone X for 560 € sold for 660 € today :).
I am not providing any value here i know that, just looking to make extra 200-300 more to pay language course.
You are completely right about business, right at the beginning.
Thank you for pointing out my deficiencies.
