Mighty oaks from little acorns grow
I had sold a lot of my junk on eBay so was pretty familiar with the platform. But what if I tried selling new products? Would that work?
There was only one way to find out and that was to give it a go.
This was long before the days of Shopify and dropshippers. I was harder back in the day, but that also meant there was a lot less competition.
I contacted around 10 suppliers and one agreed that I could sell their products on eBay. They even said they would ship them directly to the customer for me.
Yay, it worked. So I then got someone to build a website.
Yay, it also worked.
I wrote a fairly long story about how I built a successful e-commerce store.
