    Since you get a better deal on wholesale I was thinking about selling flash carts but having no stock and waiting until there is enough people to place an order. So lets say the lower price point is 10 units and it takes 1 week to get 10 orders,2 days (were sprining for overnight shipping) to reach me and then 1 week for shipping to the customer. The process still needs some tweaking but I think its a great idea to get a lower price on higher end cards and extreamly low for the lower end ones, and of course MicroSD cards are now dirt cheap.

    What do you guys think? (flamers will be shot and buried, (I will find you! [​IMG] ))

    Meh, try it out if you want, but there are already loads of places that sell flashcarts so unless you're planning on selling to your friends or people that don't know much about this kind of thing I wouldn't bother, that is unless you have something that makes you different and you plan on advertising properly and so on.

    Dropshipping is set at one pricepoint this would be more like an auction but for a lower price. like lets just say its 50 people then I can pass the savings on to the end user. I don't really care about doing it for profit.

    Why would you not do it for profit?

    Don't be ridiculous.
