00:00:00 00:00:04 what's up everyone carter here and today
00:00:02 00:00:05 i just want to make a quick video
00:00:04 00:00:07 showing you what it's like to be a
00:00:05 00:00:09 reseller on amazon we're going to go
00:00:07 00:00:10 into a few different stores i'm going to
00:00:09 00:00:12 show you
00:00:10 00:00:14 exactly what i find when i pay for each
00:00:12 00:00:16 product and what i plan to sell it for
00:00:14 00:00:18 back on amazon so let's go ahead and hit
00:00:16 00:00:20 the first store
00:00:18 00:00:21 what's up everyone so we just found
00:00:20 00:00:25 three
00:00:21 00:00:26 of these uh lighted seating avenues that
00:00:25 00:00:27 you see right here you want to show real
00:00:26 00:00:30 quick
00:00:27 00:00:31 we found three of these um currently it
00:00:30 00:00:32 costs 49. we'll show them the price
00:00:31 00:00:34 right here
00:00:32 00:00:35 just to confirm that so 29. um i'll
00:00:34 00:00:36 throw some screenshots up there but i
00:00:35 00:00:38 mean they're selling for some insane
00:00:36 00:00:40 prices so there's a bunch of people
00:00:38 00:00:41 around here looking right now but
00:00:40 00:00:42 it's some good money we'll keep you guys
00:00:41 00:00:44 updated so in this segment i actually
00:00:42 00:00:46 just want to recap
00:00:44 00:00:47 everything that i bought because all of
00:00:46 00:00:50 it has actually
00:00:47 00:00:51 sold so i want to explain each item that
00:00:50 00:00:53 i bought
00:00:51 00:00:55 what i paid per item and how much profit
00:00:53 00:00:56 i made per item and how much profit i
00:00:55 00:00:58 made
00:00:56 00:00:59 on this entire trip because i know a lot
00:00:58 00:01:01 of you are probably wondering
00:00:59 00:01:03 oh carter i see you bought all this
00:01:01 00:01:05 stuff but how long did it take to sell
00:01:03 00:01:06 what did you end up selling it for and
00:01:05 00:01:09 how much money did you make
00:01:06 00:01:11 so the first item that we bought and
00:01:09 00:01:12 this was the largest quantity of a
00:01:11 00:01:15 single item we bought
00:01:12 00:01:16 was the blow mold three piece nativity
00:01:15 00:01:19 set now we paid
00:01:16 00:01:19 forty nine dollars per unit including
00:01:19 00:01:21 tax
00:01:19 00:01:23 for this product so each unit came out
00:01:21 00:01:26 to fifty three dollars and four cents
00:01:23 00:01:28 spent to purchase now we sold these at a
00:01:26 00:01:30 couple different price points
00:01:28 00:01:31 they all sold within an hour um which
00:01:30 00:01:32 was
00:01:31 00:01:34 really really crazy i mean we would
00:01:32 00:01:36 literally buy it and on our way to the
00:01:34 00:01:36 next walmart we would sell them the
00:01:36 00:01:40 average
00:01:36 00:01:43 sales price was 166.64
00:01:40 00:01:45 per unit now the cost per unit on
00:01:43 00:01:48 average to ship these products
00:01:45 00:01:51 was 37.68 now that is
00:01:48 00:01:53 much higher than i had expected i think
00:01:51 00:01:55 the reason being is the box was a little
00:01:53 00:01:57 bit bigger it only weighed i think
00:01:55 00:01:59 9 or 10 pounds which is very very light
00:01:57 00:02:00 but i think because of the dimensions of
00:01:59 00:02:03 the box
00:02:00 00:02:04 um our carrier ups wanted to charge a
00:02:03 00:02:06 little bit more money and it's also
00:02:04 00:02:09 during the holiday season as well
00:02:06 00:02:10 so we paid anywhere from 28 to 42
00:02:09 00:02:12 dollars
00:02:10 00:02:14 per unit to ship to our customers
00:02:12 00:02:16 because we had some going to really far
00:02:14 00:02:17 shipping zones and some that were a lot
00:02:16 00:02:20 closer to where i live
00:02:17 00:02:23 but the average cost to ship was 37.68
00:02:20 00:02:25 per unit we purchased a total of 17
00:02:23 00:02:29 units and we actually ended up profiting
00:02:25 00:02:32 on average 50 and 92 cents
00:02:29 00:02:34 per unit so you do the math 50 and 92
00:02:32 00:02:38 cents times 17 units
00:02:34 00:02:41 equals a total net profit of 865
00:02:38 00:02:42 and 64 cents after shipping and after
00:02:41 00:02:44 the amazon
00:02:42 00:02:45 seller fees as well so the next item i
00:02:44 00:02:48 ended up purchasing
00:02:45 00:02:48 was the seven foot reindeer santa carosa
00:02:48 00:02:51 i actually
00:02:48 00:02:53 posted this lead in my selling fastlane
00:02:51 00:02:54 discord community i'll tok a little bit
00:02:53 00:02:58 about that community later on in this
00:02:54 00:03:03 video but it ended up buying it for 179
00:02:58 00:03:06 plus tax so tax it came out to 193.76
00:03:03 00:03:07 per unit now this took a little bit
00:03:06 00:03:09 longer to sell i think it took about a
00:03:07 00:03:15 day and a half to actually sell
00:03:09 00:03:18 but we ended up selling it for 359.97
00:03:15 00:03:20 plus 4.99 for shipping so it came out to
00:03:18 00:03:22 a total of
00:03:20 00:03:24 364.96
00:03:22 00:03:27 so the price to ship this unit was
00:03:24 00:03:32 actually only 22.51
00:03:27 00:03:37 so our profit for that sale was 93.99
00:03:32 00:03:38 off of our original purchase of 193.76
00:03:37 00:03:40 so that was a pretty cool sale this is
00:03:38 00:03:41 currently selling for i can buy it for
00:03:40 00:03:43 79 bucks
00:03:41 00:03:45 show screenshots up on here there's only
00:03:43 00:03:47 two offers for 290 dollars right now you
00:03:45 00:03:51 can see there's one for 290 there
00:03:47 00:03:52 one for 300 right there they want 79 so
00:03:51 00:03:54 there's one right here and then there's
00:03:52 00:03:55 one right here as well
00:03:54 00:03:58 um and as you can see we already picked
00:03:55 00:04:00 up six of these for 49 a piece these are
00:03:58 00:04:03 going for like 160 170 on amazon
00:04:00 00:04:04 we hit big at this moment but see what
00:04:03 00:04:06 else we find
00:04:04 00:04:08 now another item that i had mentioned in
00:04:06 00:04:08 my discord community was the nine foot
00:04:08 00:04:10 wide
00:04:08 00:04:12 inflatable horse now i personally hadn't
00:04:10 00:04:14 found this when i was outsourcing
00:04:12 00:04:15 um i've had quite a few members of my
00:04:14 00:04:16 community find it they've had great
00:04:15 00:04:20 success with it
00:04:16 00:04:23 but i ended up finding two units for 79
00:04:20 00:04:26 apiece at walmart plus tax so each unit
00:04:23 00:04:31 came out to 85.51
00:04:26 00:04:34 now we sold these on average for 272.97
00:04:31 00:04:37 plus 4.99 per shipping so our total came
00:04:34 00:04:41 out to 277.96
00:04:37 00:04:42 per unit now the average cost to ship
00:04:41 00:04:44 these was actually
00:04:42 00:04:45 16 dollars and two cents so our total
00:04:44 00:04:51 profit
00:04:45 00:04:54 for each unit was 134.74
00:04:51 00:04:55 cents we end up selling two units so our
00:04:54 00:04:57 total net profit
00:04:55 00:04:59 for those two units for the nine foot
00:04:57 00:05:02 wide inflatable horse
00:04:59 00:05:04 was 269 and 48 cents
00:05:02 00:05:06 all right so we just did really well
00:05:04 00:05:07 this last walmart we picked up
00:05:06 00:05:09 five more of these i'll put a clip up
00:05:07 00:05:11 there but they were like way
00:05:09 00:05:13 in the back there was the photo wasn't
00:05:11 00:05:15 even showing on i literally just saw
00:05:13 00:05:18 like the wording on the outside and just
00:05:15 00:05:19 knew what i was looking for so picked up
00:05:18 00:05:25 five more of these for
00:05:19 00:05:25 49 a piece and it should sell instantly
00:05:29 00:05:33 next item i found was the car buddy
00:05:31 00:05:34 grinch now this was a really really cool
00:05:33 00:05:36 find i just
00:05:34 00:05:37 found this when i was just scanning at
00:05:36 00:05:38 walmart
00:05:37 00:05:41 um through some of the different
00:05:38 00:05:43 inflatables this one was definitely one
00:05:41 00:05:46 of the most popular ones of the season
00:05:43 00:05:50 so i ended up paying 14.98 cents plus
00:05:46 00:05:52 tax so each unit came out to 16.21
00:05:50 00:05:53 so we sold these i mean i'm toking
00:05:52 00:05:56 instantly i
00:05:53 00:05:58 listed them um for buy box price so i
00:05:56 00:05:59 wasn't even the lowest price i'm telling
00:05:58 00:06:02 you they sold out within
00:05:59 00:06:03 15 or 20 minutes of me actually listing
00:06:02 00:06:05 in those products being live on
00:06:03 00:06:07 amazon so it was absolutely crazy went
00:06:05 00:06:10 up selling them for
00:06:07 00:06:13 52.96 total
00:06:10 00:06:15 per unit now each unit through ups it
00:06:13 00:06:18 costs 8.88
00:06:15 00:06:20 to ship so our profit per unit came out
00:06:18 00:06:23 to 19.90
00:06:20 00:06:27 so we sold two units so our total profit
00:06:23 00:06:28 for this item was 39.86 what's up
00:06:27 00:06:32 everyone so we just found
00:06:28 00:06:33 three more of these we just had five
00:06:32 00:06:35 sell in a 30 minute span while we were
00:06:33 00:06:38 driving to the next walmart
00:06:35 00:06:39 so once again 49 to pay for it we're
00:06:38 00:06:41 selling
00:06:39 00:06:42 around 165 including shipping right now
00:06:41 00:06:45 and they are selling
00:06:42 00:06:46 asap so we're going to stack these three
00:06:45 00:06:49 and see what else we find
00:06:46 00:06:50 so we just absolutely killed it inside
00:06:49 00:06:51 of that walmart we had two people
00:06:50 00:06:52 approach us asking us if we were
00:06:51 00:06:54 youtubers
00:06:52 00:06:55 and we just said now we're just we're
00:06:54 00:06:56 just building a project and stuff like
00:06:55 00:06:57 that but
00:06:56 00:06:59 we end up finding i forgot to record it
00:06:57 00:07:01 but we went back in to check the toy
00:06:59 00:07:02 section we found three more of these uh
00:07:01 00:07:05 coco melon jj dolls
00:07:02 00:07:07 i think that cost like 19.99 a piece and
00:07:05 00:07:09 right now they're going for like around
00:07:07 00:07:11 65 on amazon i'll throw a screenshot up
00:07:09 00:07:13 this is one of the hottest
00:07:11 00:07:15 toys um you know of the christmas season
00:07:13 00:07:17 so we got three of those we got
00:07:15 00:07:19 six of these big pieces i'll be breaking
00:07:17 00:07:20 it all down a little bit later in this
00:07:19 00:07:23 video but let's see what else we find
00:07:20 00:07:25 so the next item was the coco melon jj
00:07:23 00:07:27 doll now this is one of the
00:07:25 00:07:28 hottest items as we approach the
00:07:27 00:07:30 christmas
00:07:28 00:07:32 season everyone is trying to find this i
00:07:30 00:07:35 can't believe i found someone we found
00:07:32 00:07:38 three at one single store so we
00:07:35 00:07:42 spent 19.99 per unit plus tax so each
00:07:38 00:07:44 unit came out to 21.63
00:07:42 00:07:46 now the thing about this is it's
00:07:44 00:07:48 considered a toy well it is a toy and
00:07:46 00:07:50 amazon does have some restrictions when
00:07:48 00:07:53 it comes to selling
00:07:50 00:07:53 toys on amazon during the holiday season
00:07:53 00:07:56 and
00:07:53 00:08:00 to make things quick and simple i
00:07:56 00:08:01 didn't meet the seller requirements to
00:08:00 00:08:04 be able to
00:08:01 00:08:06 merchant fulfill toys during the holiday
00:08:04 00:08:08 season so essentially i can't
00:08:06 00:08:10 list and sell and ship an item during
00:08:08 00:08:13 the holidays that is
00:08:10 00:08:14 under the toys category i can actually
00:08:13 00:08:16 only
00:08:14 00:08:17 send them to fba or send them to an
00:08:16 00:08:19 amazon warehouse
00:08:17 00:08:21 so i am actually sending these to the
00:08:19 00:08:22 amazon warehouse so they haven't
00:08:21 00:08:24 officially sold yet because i'm
00:08:22 00:08:26 recording this video i think two or
00:08:24 00:08:28 three days after the trip
00:08:26 00:08:29 but if i do sell it for the lowest price
00:08:28 00:08:30 which i know i'll probably sell for a
00:08:29 00:08:31 little bit more but
00:08:30 00:08:33 just to make it simple i'm gonna be
00:08:31 00:08:37 selling it for the lowest price point of
00:08:33 00:08:38 55 fba now the price to
00:08:37 00:08:40 ship it i don't have to pay because
00:08:38 00:08:42 amazon's going to handle all that for me
00:08:40 00:08:45 and they're going to hit me with a fee
00:08:42 00:08:48 but to ship it from my house to amazon
00:08:45 00:08:49 i pay anywhere from 35 to 40 cents per
00:08:48 00:08:51 pound
00:08:49 00:08:54 this is under a pound but i'm just gonna
00:08:51 00:08:55 say it's 75 cents per unit to ship it to
00:08:54 00:08:56 amazon
00:08:55 00:08:58 so we're going to have three of those
00:08:56 00:09:00 units so after fees
00:08:58 00:09:02 after the cost to ship it to amazon i'm
00:09:00 00:09:04 going to make a profit of
00:09:02 00:09:08 17.36 per
00:09:04 00:09:09 baby per cocoa melon jj doll so the
00:09:08 00:09:10 total profit for all three of those
00:09:09 00:09:13 units combined
00:09:10 00:09:14 is 52 dollars and eight cents all right
00:09:13 00:09:17 so we just found
00:09:14 00:09:20 two of these star wars mandalorians um
00:09:17 00:09:21 i think walmart charges like 28.88 for
00:09:20 00:09:24 it
00:09:21 00:09:25 and look at the prices right now i might
00:09:24 00:09:26 have this on my list but
00:09:25 00:09:30 looks like i should sell for like
00:09:26 00:09:32 anywhere from probably to around 70
00:09:30 00:09:33 i'm also a screenshot up there too but
00:09:32 00:09:35 we're gonna see what else we find we'll
00:09:33 00:09:36 keep you guys updated so unfortunately i
00:09:35 00:09:39 can't sell these i can only
00:09:36 00:09:40 send them to fba but by the time they
00:09:39 00:09:42 arrive to amazon
00:09:40 00:09:44 unfortunately you know it's no one's
00:09:42 00:09:45 gonna be buying christmas decorations
00:09:44 00:09:46 anymore so
00:09:45 00:09:47 i'm gonna have to go ahead and return
00:09:46 00:09:48 these real quick and we're gonna see
00:09:47 00:09:50 what else we can find inside
00:09:48 00:09:52 now the last item i briefly wanted to
00:09:50 00:09:53 touch on was the star wars inflatable
00:09:52 00:09:55 yoda
00:09:53 00:09:56 now as you can see from the main picture
00:09:55 00:09:59 i
00:09:56 00:10:01 ended up returning those star wars yoda
00:09:59 00:10:03 inflatables the reason being is it was
00:10:01 00:10:05 listed under the toy
00:10:03 00:10:07 category for some reason this isn't
00:10:05 00:10:07 inflatable it should be listed in the
00:10:07 00:10:10 patio
00:10:07 00:10:11 lawn and garden category however it was
00:10:10 00:10:14 listed under toys
00:10:11 00:10:16 and i was restricted to merchant fulfill
00:10:14 00:10:18 that item and i didn't want to send it
00:10:16 00:10:18 to fba because it's a christmas related
00:10:18 00:10:21 item
00:10:18 00:10:22 i knew that if i sent it to fba the
00:10:21 00:10:24 shipping time
00:10:22 00:10:26 the receiving times at amazon are a lot
00:10:24 00:10:28 slower because it's the holiday season
00:10:26 00:10:29 everyone is shipping things in so i just
00:10:28 00:10:32 ended up returning those
00:10:29 00:10:34 to walmart so i just broke even actually
00:10:32 00:10:35 didn't spend any money or sell that item
00:10:34 00:10:38 at all so if you take
00:10:35 00:10:39 everything that we purchased the total
00:10:38 00:10:42 amount we spent
00:10:39 00:10:43 our total sales value for everything
00:10:42 00:10:46 combined
00:10:43 00:10:47 comes out and twenty to dollars and
00:10:46 00:10:50 sixty eight cents
00:10:47 00:10:51 our cost of goods which is what we
00:10:50 00:10:54 purchased those items for
00:10:51 00:10:54 everything combined came out to one
00:10:54 00:10:56 thousand
00:10:54 00:10:58 three hundred and sixty three dollars
00:10:56 00:11:00 and seventy seven cents
00:10:58 00:11:01 and our total profit after shipping
00:11:00 00:11:05 after expenses
00:11:01 00:11:07 and after fees comes out to 1321
00:11:05 00:11:09 and one cent so i know i briefly touched
00:11:07 00:11:11 on my selling fastlane discord community
00:11:09 00:11:14 but essentially
00:11:11 00:11:17 i've built a community for resellers on

00:11:17 00:11:20 ebay and amazon reselling
