You will need to promote your website wherever possible and let the potential customers know why buying from you is their best option. This may mean purchasing advertisements, but again, you should regain the cost rather quickly. They need to know you’re out there so they can buy from you.

Auction sites – Everyone has heard of eBay. Through this type of site, users make bids on products. This can mean a bigger profit for you if there are a lot of people bidding on the product. There is also a “Buy it Now” option you can use when listing your items so you can sell directly for a flat price.

2. Selling Chinese Imports Directly – If you’re technologically challenged, don’t like to deal with shipping costs, or simply like interacting with your customers, you can you’re your Chinese imports directly. Here are a few direct selling methods that don’t require you to have an actual storefront:

Local auction houses – There are auction houses that are particular about the types of items they will list for sale, so you need to check that before you buy. There is, however, a chance for a large profit if it is a desirable item and has several bidders.

Flea markets/local trade center – Here you will need to pay to rent a temporary booth. This is usually inexpensive because flea markets are usually only open on the weekends. Since flea market shoppers are bargain hunters, you can sell your Chinese imports quickly if you sell them cheaper than retail. Flea markets usually give you a faster return.
