Ebay's Wholesale Deals

Anyone else been invited to try Ebay's Wholesale Deals? Got an invite today with a personal invitation code. Is this something new? First time I have heard of it.

It's about a year old. But what good is access to a wholesale source that thousands of others will have access to?

 

You don't make money when you sell stuff here. You make money when you buy stuff to sell here. Protect your sources with an iron fist. That's where your real competition is.

Agreed.  I'm not getting the wholesale thing, either.  Maybe the site hooked some wholesalers into here and is flogging the opportunity.

I thought the same thing. Why would I want to buy the same stuff that everyone else is buying to resell? Already too much competition in the Clothing business. Just was weird to all of a sudden be offered this "opportunity" out of the blue.

 

Thanks for your responses.

The prices are ridiculously high for resale here because obviously ebay is getting a cut (see GSP for an example); they aren't doing this to "help" sellers.

 

My opinion ?  Another throw it at the wall see if it sticks idea.
