  1. Yup, from my time playing eve-online I have learned the best profit margins are on the cheapest items.

    It may be a small profit but if you have a high volume its wait better than waiting for an expensive item to sell for a smaller margin.

    I’m curious about the shipping on clay pots, I would think it would be a very dangerous situation.

    1. Yup I agree Bryan. As for the clay pots good point but I believe you can secure them in a way to be safe for shipping. For example stacking them and then wrapping them in some bubble wrap.

  2. Also… i noticed some of these items probably have expiration dates. Dollar tree deals with a lot of expired items. Any issues with expiration dates and upset customers?

      1. It just makes me nervous sometimes, when selling items that go on skin and face. What kind of trouble you may get into with crappy quality products.

    1. I would think possibly Amazon or Shopify. You can try and see if that works. I’m going to try.

  3. Why not, stores do the same thing. Buy cheap and sell for more, probably not from the Dollar Tree but the same concept. Why shouldn’t we get in on it too.
