Retail arbitrage It’s a really simple way to make your money work. For example, you purchase an item from a store like Target on clearance and they sell it to you for a low price.
You can sell that same item on Amazon for a higher price and make a profit. You find a product to buy and once you receive the item and it's in your possession you find the amazon listing (where the product is selling for a higher price on Amazon.
They will give you a custom mailing label to place on the box the item is in. Now your product arrives at Amazon’s warehouse, and your item will be for sale under the official brand's sales page on Amazon.
You are an independent seller, but you get yo have the power of the official brand page’s advertising and traffic and once your item sells page!! Amazon ships it for you, and you will receive the money in your bank account.
If there are any issues or customer support Amazon will take care of it. Amazing Right!!
