    Sometimes on ebay i see a seller, like mom and dads cycling store. How do they get these parts a not huge quantity from the manufacturer?

    well, look on ebay and look for all of the cycling stores. Theres a lot, none of the are nashbars size obviously. So they dont have warehouses of the stuff, but how do they the products that they sell?

    That is when you order something from a company and they have it shipped to you from the manufacturer or wholesaler. Cuts down on handling and shipping charges.
    They may also be buying closeout bikes and stripping them for parts. There is a local shop that did that before Ebay. Sometimes people just sell stuff for whatever they can get to get some cash flow. If you have a der for three years and no one buys it and they need some cash to buy stuff that will sell for a profit, might as well dump it at or below cost.

    I thought Rev., that drop ship was when Person 'A' bought something from Company 'B', who never inventories the merchandise, but orders it from Company 'C' which in turn ships it to Person 'A'.


    Trust me pc2... once you start, if you're looking to make serious money, you'll have time for little else. My 'vacation' last year... 3 days. I couldn't leave the buisness for any longer!

    well like when you order these things, do you order right from the manufacturer or some other distributor. What is the minimum order?

    Ever see Goodfellas? They hijack shipping trucks and sell the goods.

    Just joking.
