00:00:00 00:00:04 i'm going to be attempting to purchase
00:00:01 00:00:04 twelve hundred dollars in pokemon cards
00:00:04 00:00:06 right now
00:00:04 00:00:08 and seeing if i can flip them for profit
00:00:06 00:00:09 and all the money i make i'm actually
00:00:08 00:00:11 gonna giving to
00:00:09 00:00:17 one lucky commenter down below let's get
00:00:11 00:00:17 this challenge started
00:00:21 00:00:24 so i'm probably gonna lose a good amount
00:00:23 00:00:27 of money in this
00:00:24 00:00:28 video but you guys voted on my instagram
00:00:27 00:00:31 story the other day you want to see
00:00:28 00:00:33 if i can flip twelve hundred dollars in
00:00:31 00:00:34 pokemon cards and actually make some
00:00:33 00:00:35 money so
00:00:34 00:00:38 full disclosure i want to quickly
00:00:35 00:00:38 explain how exactly this whole entire
00:00:38 00:00:41 thing came
00:00:38 00:00:43 up uh so my mom came over uh the house
00:00:41 00:00:45 the other day and dropped off some of my
00:00:43 00:00:47 old pokemon cards and
00:00:45 00:00:48 being the entrepreneur that i am of
00:00:47 00:00:50 course i went to ebay and started trying
00:00:48 00:00:52 to figure out hey do i actually have
00:00:50 00:00:54 anything here that is worth a little bit
00:00:52 00:00:55 of money and unfortunately i do have
00:00:54 00:00:57 some
00:00:55 00:00:59 rare cards in here but they're all
00:00:57 00:00:59 pretty much played with and kind of
00:00:59 00:01:01 ruined so
00:00:59 00:01:03 i'm going to be learning a lot during
00:01:01 00:01:04 this little video that we're putting
00:01:03 00:01:05 together here i'm going to
00:01:04 00:01:07 spend a good amount of money trying to
00:01:05 00:01:08 buy some rare pokemon cards
00:01:07 00:01:10 see if i can flip them and make some
00:01:08 00:01:12 money and hopefully educate you a little
00:01:10 00:01:13 bit about this crazy industry of
00:01:12 00:01:15 sporting
00:01:13 00:01:16 sport cards flipping pokemon card
00:01:15 00:01:18 flipping and hopefully you yourself can
00:01:16 00:01:19 make a little bit of money
00:01:18 00:01:21 so those of you that might not know who
00:01:19 00:01:23 i am my name is peter peru i
00:01:21 00:01:25 have been an online entrepreneur now for
00:01:23 00:01:26 13 years i own two companies ecommerce
00:01:25 00:01:28 empire
00:01:26 00:01:29 builders and on tap focus let's get into
00:01:28 00:01:30 this challenge and see if we can flip
00:01:29 00:01:32 some pokemon cards
00:01:30 00:01:34 and make some money so before we even
00:01:32 00:01:35 get into this guys i just want to give
00:01:34 00:01:37 you guys some education that i know
00:01:35 00:01:39 at least about pokemon cards before we
00:01:37 00:01:41 go and start buying stuff
00:01:39 00:01:42 okay so the one thing i do understand
00:01:41 00:01:44 that there are first edition cards and
00:01:42 00:01:46 there's non-first edition cards so
00:01:44 00:01:48 as you can see on this card right this
00:01:46 00:01:49 is probably the only good card that i
00:01:48 00:01:51 have unfortunately
00:01:49 00:01:52 it's all played with so it's not really
00:01:51 00:01:54 worth much at all
00:01:52 00:01:56 but you can see that it says first
00:01:54 00:01:57 edition right there so that first
00:01:56 00:02:00 edition means it was the first
00:01:57 00:02:00 printing now again if you look at this
00:02:00 00:02:03 card right
00:02:00 00:02:04 there is no first edition symbol there
00:02:03 00:02:07 right so that makes it less
00:02:04 00:02:08 rare now the other thing that's kind of
00:02:07 00:02:09 confusing about pokemon cards when
00:02:08 00:02:12 you're just getting into it
00:02:09 00:02:14 is the shadowless verse non-shadowless
00:02:12 00:02:15 so the thing is if it has a shadow right
00:02:14 00:02:17 here
00:02:15 00:02:19 let me make sure it's focused if it has
00:02:17 00:02:20 that little shadow right there that you
00:02:19 00:02:22 can see
00:02:20 00:02:23 that makes it a little less valuable
00:02:22 00:02:25 right the shadowless cards are what
00:02:23 00:02:27 are worth more however a card like this
00:02:25 00:02:29 that's first edition and has the shadow
00:02:27 00:02:31 still this one right here was going for
00:02:29 00:02:33 like six seven hundred dollars
00:02:31 00:02:35 uh that i saw even one sold for like
00:02:33 00:02:37 1600 bucks which is absolutely insane
00:02:35 00:02:38 right so of course you want to go after
00:02:37 00:02:40 the shadowless ones and
00:02:38 00:02:42 first edition cards so now we're going
00:02:40 00:02:42 to hop into my computer and i'm going to
00:02:42 00:02:43 go
00:02:42 00:02:45 over some research and see if we can
00:02:43 00:02:49 find any good deals all right guys so
00:02:45 00:02:51 it's been about an hour hour and a half
00:02:49 00:02:52 and uh i expected to just jump into my
00:02:51 00:02:53 computer and start buying some pokemon
00:02:52 00:02:55 cards
00:02:53 00:02:56 and uh you know buying them and then
00:02:55 00:02:58 flipping them and it did not come out
00:02:56 00:03:00 the way there is so
00:02:58 00:03:01 much research that goes into so it's the
00:03:00 00:03:02 first thing i've been learning is there
00:03:01 00:03:04 is
00:03:02 00:03:06 so many different kinds of pokemon cards
00:03:04 00:03:08 out there so obviously as a kid i always
00:03:06 00:03:10 was collecting pokemon cards
00:03:08 00:03:12 and there was up to this point so many
00:03:10 00:03:12 different additional new cards that came
00:03:12 00:03:14 out so
00:03:12 00:03:16 here's my strategy what i realized to
00:03:14 00:03:17 make this kind of the easiest for me as
00:03:16 00:03:19 well as kind of
00:03:17 00:03:20 make it as safe an investment as
00:03:19 00:03:21 possible if you can call it an
00:03:20 00:03:24 investment
00:03:21 00:03:25 um is investing into first edition cards
00:03:24 00:03:28 like we toked about
00:03:25 00:03:30 as well as a base set so base set is
00:03:28 00:03:34 those original cards that first
00:03:30 00:03:35 came out okay they were in 1999 that
00:03:34 00:03:36 those cards came out so my focus is
00:03:35 00:03:38 going to be on first
00:03:36 00:03:41 edition cards shadowless cards
00:03:38 00:03:44 preferably because they're more valuable
00:03:41 00:03:45 and base set cards as well so i cannot
00:03:44 00:03:47 stress this enough guys
00:03:45 00:03:48 research is key before you go and jump
00:03:47 00:03:49 into these so
00:03:48 00:03:52 i see a couple auctions that i'm about
00:03:49 00:03:54 to jump into and see if i can win
00:03:52 00:03:56 um but before i am going into these
00:03:54 00:03:58 there is a grading system for these
00:03:56 00:04:01 pokemon cards so kind of the one that's
00:03:58 00:04:02 held at the highest esteem is called psa
00:04:01 00:04:04 and essentially you could send them
00:04:02 00:04:04 pokemon cards and they will rank them
00:04:04 00:04:06 you know
00:04:04 00:04:08 one through ten ten obviously being the
00:04:06 00:04:09 best kind of quality so
00:04:08 00:04:11 you've seen pokemon cards selling for
00:04:09 00:04:13 tens of thousands of dollars
00:04:11 00:04:14 even collections selling for hundreds of
00:04:13 00:04:16 thousands of dollars
00:04:14 00:04:17 because they're psa 10 graded cards that
00:04:16 00:04:20 mean these cards
00:04:17 00:04:21 are absolutely pristine they're perfect
00:04:20 00:04:23 now here's the thing from some of the
00:04:21 00:04:25 research that i've been doing
00:04:23 00:04:26 is that sometimes you when as a kid if
00:04:25 00:04:29 you bought a pack of these original base
00:04:26 00:04:30 set cards some of the cards would just
00:04:29 00:04:32 even just right out of the factory
00:04:30 00:04:34 wouldn't be graded psa 10 right so that
00:04:32 00:04:36 makes them even more rare so for example
00:04:34 00:04:37 a charizard that sold for you know tens
00:04:36 00:04:39 of thousands of dollars
00:04:37 00:04:40 right that one is pristine right there's
00:04:39 00:04:42 not a single
00:04:40 00:04:44 blemish or anything wrong with this card
00:04:42 00:04:46 right so
00:04:44 00:04:48 these psa 10 cards anything in that
00:04:46 00:04:50 first edition anything based on anything
00:04:48 00:04:51 shadows is is just crazy expensive right
00:04:50 00:04:51 cause they don't print them anymore
00:04:51 00:04:54 right
00:04:51 00:04:56 and there's not that many out there so
00:04:54 00:04:57 my strategy is not going after the psa
00:04:56 00:04:58 10 cards i'm actually going to go after
00:04:57 00:05:01 the psa
00:04:58 00:05:02 9 graded cards now this might come back
00:05:01 00:05:04 to bite me and i might actually lose
00:05:02 00:05:05 some money because this but
00:05:04 00:05:07 the psa 10 cards are just stupid
00:05:05 00:05:08 expensive and i don't really want to
00:05:07 00:05:10 spend that much money on
00:05:08 00:05:12 one or two cards i rather focus on the
00:05:10 00:05:13 psa nine cards which are also mint
00:05:12 00:05:15 condition cards
00:05:13 00:05:17 but they're also selling really well and
00:05:15 00:05:18 i figured that hey you know what
00:05:17 00:05:20 as more and more people are getting into
00:05:18 00:05:23 this right those psa nine cards are also
00:05:20 00:05:25 going to be going up in value as well so
00:05:23 00:05:26 just to recap what i'm searching for
00:05:25 00:05:30 okay i'm searching for
00:05:26 00:05:31 psa 9 graded cards i am
00:05:30 00:05:33 searching for base set right that
00:05:31 00:05:35 original set of pokemon cards
00:05:33 00:05:37 i'm searching for first edition
00:05:35 00:05:39 shadowless okay
00:05:37 00:05:40 that is a huge mouthful but hopefully
00:05:39 00:05:41 you guys are following along and
00:05:40 00:05:43 especially
00:05:41 00:05:45 if you're educate yourself on anything
00:05:43 00:05:46 that you're getting into so so so
00:05:45 00:05:47 important otherwise you're gonna just
00:05:46 00:05:48 end up wasting a whole bunch of money
00:05:47 00:05:51 all right guys so
00:05:48 00:05:53 quick little update here um it's a
00:05:51 00:05:55 little bit later in the evening now
00:05:53 00:05:57 um and i think i have enough pokemon
00:05:55 00:05:58 cards we spent around twelve hundred
00:05:57 00:06:00 dollars i think one thousand two hundred
00:05:58 00:06:02 fifty four dollars and some change
00:06:00 00:06:04 on some pokemon cards and i think i made
00:06:02 00:06:06 a mistake on one of these so
00:06:04 00:06:07 i figured out a new strategy that i was
00:06:06 00:06:09 doing with ebay so
00:06:07 00:06:11 the cool thing with ebay is that you can
00:06:09 00:06:13 sort right
00:06:11 00:06:15 what has sold recently so make sure that
00:06:13 00:06:16 whenever you're filtering
00:06:15 00:06:18 on ebay make sure you go on the left
00:06:16 00:06:20 hand column and check sold items that
00:06:18 00:06:20 way you can see what people actually
00:06:20 00:06:22 purchase
00:06:20 00:06:24 these kind of cards for and then
00:06:22 00:06:26 obviously you try and buy them at a
00:06:24 00:06:28 lower price than that right makes sense
00:06:26 00:06:30 so i figured out a cool different
00:06:28 00:06:32 strategy just from going on ebay
00:06:30 00:06:34 is what i started doing and this is how
00:06:32 00:06:36 i actually won my next uh my next
00:06:34 00:06:37 six cards from one seller is i was
00:06:36 00:06:40 sorting
00:06:37 00:06:42 by newest listed right so i went in and
00:06:40 00:06:45 i searched psa9
00:06:42 00:06:46 first edition shadowless right on ebay
00:06:45 00:06:49 and then i sorted by
00:06:46 00:06:50 newest listed and the reason i did that
00:06:49 00:06:52 is because i figured hey people that
00:06:50 00:06:53 just listed something they probably just
00:06:52 00:06:54 want to get it out they want to get it
00:06:53 00:06:56 sold so
00:06:54 00:06:57 there was one a person that came up and
00:06:56 00:06:59 within 15
00:06:57 00:07:01 20 minutes of them posting this listing
00:06:59 00:07:02 i had a bid out there for them they
00:07:01 00:07:04 accepted the bid
00:07:02 00:07:05 and i got it so we'll flash it up on
00:07:04 00:07:08 screen this had
00:07:05 00:07:10 six psa uh nine grade cards first
00:07:08 00:07:11 edition and they were all shadowless as
00:07:10 00:07:13 well
00:07:11 00:07:14 now i think i got an amazing deal for
00:07:13 00:07:15 these cards because each of these cards
00:07:14 00:07:17 from what i found
00:07:15 00:07:19 on their sold items was selling for
00:07:17 00:07:20 around a hundred dollars each so i'm
00:07:19 00:07:21 really excited about getting that six so
00:07:20 00:07:23 i think that's where i'm gonna make a
00:07:21 00:07:25 whole bunch of my money back
00:07:23 00:07:26 um i also want another uh psa nine card
00:07:25 00:07:28 uh a pidgey
00:07:26 00:07:29 that you guys can see here and then i
00:07:28 00:07:30 won one other card i got too excited
00:07:29 00:07:34 guys and i think i
00:07:30 00:07:34 made a huge huge huge mistake um so i
00:07:34 00:07:36 bought this
00:07:34 00:07:38 you know uh you know machamp first
00:07:36 00:07:40 edition the one exact one i had but it's
00:07:38 00:07:42 a psa 9 graded card
00:07:40 00:07:44 and i was sorting it by newest listed
00:07:42 00:07:45 again and i saw somebody posted it for
00:07:44 00:07:46 super cheap price and i immediately just
00:07:45 00:07:47 went in
00:07:46 00:07:49 threw a bid out and they bought it uh
00:07:47 00:07:51 they took it so i paid 299 for obviously
00:07:49 00:07:53 plus tax 321
00:07:51 00:07:55 uh for this piece of cardboard insane
00:07:53 00:07:56 but i think i overpaid for it because i
00:07:55 00:07:59 thought it was shadowless but it's
00:07:56 00:08:01 not actually shadowless um so
00:07:59 00:08:02 we're gonna see how how this one goes i
00:08:01 00:08:04 think i lost i might have lost some
00:08:02 00:08:06 money on this one i got
00:08:04 00:08:07 a little too a little too emotional
00:08:06 00:08:09 about that so
00:08:07 00:08:11 uh all these cards uh or are on their
00:08:09 00:08:13 way to my house so
00:08:11 00:08:14 i'll see you guys in a when when they
00:08:13 00:08:16 actually come we'll do an unboxing
00:08:14 00:08:18 um but if you're enjoying this video so
00:08:16 00:08:19 far make sure you like and if you're new
00:08:18 00:08:20 here to the channel make sure you're
00:08:19 00:08:21 subscribed as well we're gonna be doing
00:08:20 00:08:22 a bunch of these cool challenges and
00:08:21 00:08:24 stuff like this
00:08:22 00:08:26 on this channel so again i'll see you
00:08:24 00:08:28 guys when we're doing the unboxing
00:08:26 00:08:30 all right guys the cards have just
00:08:28 00:08:40 arrived at my house let's go pick them
00:08:30 00:08:41 up and do an unboxing
00:08:40 00:08:43 all right guys so the first thing i'm
00:08:41 00:08:44 going to do and this is where i feel if
00:08:43 00:08:46 i can differentiate myself over
00:08:44 00:08:48 everybody that's selling these on ebay
00:08:46 00:08:50 is going and taking better product
00:08:48 00:08:52 photos and everybody else a good photo
00:08:50 00:08:54 crisp photo was going to get more clicks
00:08:52 00:08:55 to the listing it's going to have higher
00:08:54 00:08:57 perceived value
00:08:55 00:08:59 and in a sense should get higher sales
00:08:57 00:09:00 rate so what i'm going to be doing is
00:08:59 00:09:02 taking really good
00:09:00 00:09:03 product photos right now of all the
00:09:02 00:09:04 cards and then getting them listed on
00:09:03 00:09:05 ebay

00:09:05 00:09:08 makeshift studio so i got this nice
00:09:07 00:09:10 little
00:09:08 00:09:12 shiplap wall that we had put in so look
00:09:10 00:09:15 if i took the
00:09:12 00:09:17 camera and just took a picture like this

00:11:29 00:11:34 obviously is a person that has a ton
00:11:32 00:11:35 of people that follow him so i knew that
00:11:34 00:11:37 there was going to be a lot more
00:11:35 00:11:38 demand for these kind of cards so i said
00:11:37 00:11:39 hey you know what i'm going to hold on
00:11:38 00:11:40 to these for about a week and a half two
00:11:39 00:11:42 weeks
00:11:40 00:11:43 and then list them and last night we
00:11:42 00:11:46 sold four
00:11:43 00:11:47 pokemon cards for a pretty nice profit
00:11:46 00:11:48 we still have a good amount to go but i
00:11:47 00:11:51 want to quickly share with you guys
00:11:48 00:11:52 the biggest win the biggest win this
00:11:51 00:11:56 card right here this machamp
00:11:52 00:11:58 um not shadowless first edition psa9 i
00:11:56 00:11:58 was able to sell this car guys this is
00:11:58 00:12:01 the card
00:11:58 00:12:02 that i bought for 299 right and i was
00:12:01 00:12:03 worried because i jumped the gun i
00:12:02 00:12:05 bought it and i thought that
00:12:03 00:12:06 you know i was going to be able to you
00:12:05 00:12:07 know resell it quickly but then i found
00:12:06 00:12:09 out it's not
00:12:07 00:12:11 shadowless and i totally just like
00:12:09 00:12:13 botched it um but
00:12:11 00:12:14 i ended up being able to sell this one
00:12:13 00:12:16 for 320
00:12:14 00:12:18 which is absolutely amazing i thought i
00:12:16 00:12:19 was gonna be stuck with this card
00:12:18 00:12:21 and uh i i didn't think we were going to
00:12:19 00:12:21 be able to actually you know make our
00:12:21 00:12:23 money back
00:12:21 00:12:24 uh which is absolutely awesome right
00:12:23 00:12:27 here for this card
00:12:24 00:12:30 um i did charge shipping as well so i
00:12:27 00:12:31 believe the total came out to 320 or 325
00:12:30 00:12:33 one of the two this one's going out
00:12:31 00:12:35 today so what happened is the guy that
00:12:33 00:12:37 bought this card right here
00:12:35 00:12:39 asked if you know he could buy another
00:12:37 00:12:41 card which is
00:12:39 00:12:44 the machoke right so this is a shadow
00:12:41 00:12:47 list uh psa9
00:12:44 00:12:50 it says shadowless psa9 card um that i
00:12:47 00:12:51 had bought for
00:12:50 00:12:54 let's see what did i get this one so i
00:12:51 00:12:55 got this one i bought this one

00:12:55 00:12:59 got this one for 108
00:12:57 00:13:00 and again more people are in the market
00:12:59 00:13:02 now um again
00:13:00 00:13:04 prices aren't like through the roof i
00:13:02 00:13:04 probably overpaid for this card to begin
00:13:04 00:13:06 with
00:13:04 00:13:08 um which one it made me want to actually
00:13:06 00:13:09 just keep them and hold them and see how
00:13:08 00:13:11 long i can but
00:13:09 00:13:13 um ended up giving him a deal i had it
00:13:11 00:13:14 listed for 129 this card with a bunch of
00:13:13 00:13:16 people watching it
00:13:14 00:13:18 um but ended up you know being like hey
00:13:16 00:13:19 the guy that purchased this i was like
00:13:18 00:13:20 he's asking me for a good deal and i was

00:13:20 00:13:23 a good deal man
00:13:21 00:13:25 uh so we ended up giving him this card
00:13:23 00:13:29 for 119
00:13:25 00:13:31 bucks so absolutely amazing 434 dollars
00:13:29 00:13:33 just for these two cards so far which is

00:13:37 00:13:42 actually came in that pack that i got
00:13:38 00:13:44 for 260 dollars and i knew that was such
00:13:42 00:13:46 a steal guys i knew when i got it
00:13:44 00:13:47 um that i bought six of these ps9
00:13:46 00:13:50 shadowless cards
00:13:47 00:13:52 for 260 bucks and i knew that i was

00:14:04 00:14:11 80 bucks for this card right here
00:14:07 00:14:11 and then we also sold our energy removal

00:15:21 00:15:24 shadowless one the machamp
00:15:22 00:15:26 um but actually ended up selling it for
00:15:24 00:15:28 a profit man it's crazy how much people
00:15:26 00:15:30 are spending on these cards right now
00:15:28 00:15:31 my opinion though and at the end of this
00:15:30 00:15:33 video i'll go i'll do like my thoughts
00:15:31 00:15:36 on everything but real quick
00:15:33 00:15:38 i um i do believe that these cards are
00:15:36 00:15:40 it's in a bubble right now all day um i
00:15:38 00:15:41 think people are spending a ridiculous
00:15:40 00:15:43 amount on these cards and i don't think
00:15:41 00:15:44 it's necessarily worth it
00:15:43 00:15:46 um but to each his own maybe i'm
00:15:44 00:15:48 completely wrong all in all i'm happy
00:15:46 00:15:48 because you know we made some money on
00:15:48 00:15:51 this challenge

00:17:51 00:17:54 machamp
00:17:52 00:17:55 um this one i was scared about guys
00:17:54 00:17:56 because i used the strategy of newly
00:17:55 00:17:57 listed but i didn't realize it wasn't
00:17:56 00:18:00 shadowless
00:17:57 00:18:03 and i bought it for 299 bucks and i was
00:18:00 00:18:03 like oh man i made a bad deal but held
00:18:03 00:18:05 it on
00:18:03 00:18:06 you know i feel like logan paul really
00:18:05 00:18:07 got a lot of people into this and i was
00:18:06 00:18:09 able to sell
00:18:07 00:18:10 that along with the machoke somebody
00:18:09 00:18:14 offered me
00:18:10 00:18:17 434 for both of those cards
00:18:14 00:18:18 plus 10 bucks for shipping for 444
00:18:17 00:18:19 dollars
00:18:18 00:18:21 for both of those cards it made a nice
00:18:19 00:18:23 profit there
00:18:21 00:18:26 the next one pidgey right bought it for
00:18:23 00:18:29 87.99 eradicate bought it for 80.
00:18:26 00:18:31 somebody offered me 230 dollars for them
00:18:29 00:18:31 right awesome profit right there on that
00:18:31 00:18:34 one
00:18:31 00:18:36 next one this one was big guys magmars i
00:18:34 00:18:38 purchased this car for 110 bucks i
00:18:36 00:18:40 thought i overpaid for this guys i legit
00:18:38 00:18:44 thought i overpaid for this one
00:18:40 00:18:46 but i didn't i sold it for 164.99
00:18:44 00:18:47 i was so pumped i remember i woke up in
00:18:46 00:18:49 the morning i was like what i've never
00:18:47 00:18:49 been that excited to make 50 bucks in my
00:18:49 00:18:52 life
00:18:49 00:18:55 uh the next one is a big one too
00:18:52 00:18:56 growlith i purchased it for 150 again i
00:18:55 00:19:00 thought i overpaid for this one
00:18:56 00:19:03 sold it for 224 uh freaking insane
00:19:00 00:19:05 uh so what are the totals looking like
00:19:03 00:19:07 okay so here's the totals totals
00:19:05 00:19:08 with tax okay because when i purchased
00:19:07 00:19:12 these products i had to pay tax on them
00:19:08 00:19:14 i paid 1254.83
00:19:12 00:19:16 for all of these cards i just toked
00:19:14 00:19:19 about okay paid 100 oh 1
00:19:16 00:19:21 254.83 that's all in taxes
00:19:19 00:19:23 shipping i they were all free shipping
00:19:21 00:19:26 but that's how much i paid
00:19:23 00:19:28 right now how much did i actually sell
00:19:26 00:19:31 everything for okay so for everything i
00:19:28 00:19:33 charged five dollar flat rate shipping
00:19:31 00:19:34 okay now it didn't really cost me five
00:19:33 00:19:35 dollars but it was a way to make a
00:19:34 00:19:38 little bit of margin back
00:19:35 00:19:43 so i was able to sell everything
00:19:38 00:19:44 for 1654.98
00:19:43 00:19:46 okay now you might be wondering what are
00:19:44 00:19:48 the cost of goods there be like you know
00:19:46 00:19:50 how much do you know fees right there's
00:19:48 00:19:51 fees that are associated with this stuff
00:19:50 00:19:53 um there's like the packaging there's
00:19:51 00:19:54 the shipping all that stuff right how
00:19:53 00:19:56 much that'll cost okay so
00:19:54 00:19:57 it was roughly twenty dollars for me to
00:19:56 00:19:59 ship everything okay
00:19:57 00:20:01 um roughly it cost me about three
00:19:59 00:20:04 dollars and fifty cents
00:20:01 00:20:06 to ship things um you know i have a i i
00:20:04 00:20:08 use this company called pirateship.com
00:20:06 00:20:10 which gives me insanely good rates to
00:20:08 00:20:13 ship stuff out and i had like a ton of
00:20:10 00:20:15 packaging supplies but roughly 350 with
00:20:13 00:20:18 packaging supplies and shipping
00:20:15 00:20:21 that's how much it cost okay so
00:20:18 00:20:23 how much did it cost in fees roughly 30
00:20:21 00:20:25 uh in fees i had to pay here so when you
00:20:23 00:20:27 put in the the shipping
00:20:25 00:20:31 plus the the fees plus packaging
00:20:27 00:20:35 materials i was left with 350
00:20:31 00:20:36 and 15 cents in pure profit okay now
00:20:35 00:20:38 i was actually surprised guys i'm not
00:20:36 00:20:39 even i wasn't doing the numbers as i was
00:20:38 00:20:40 selling them but when i saw this i was
00:20:39 00:20:42 like 350
00:20:40 00:20:45 and 15 cents and i had a lot of fun
00:20:42 00:20:46 doing this um it was kind of worth it in
00:20:45 00:20:48 my opinion it really was i thought it
00:20:46 00:20:49 was a lot of fun i think
00:20:48 00:20:50 i think it was a fun challenge but
00:20:49 00:20:52 here's the thing does it make sense to
00:20:50 00:20:53 do this full-time
00:20:52 00:20:55 it takes a lot of effort guys i'm not
00:20:53 00:20:58 gonna lie right packaging things up
00:20:55 00:20:59 isn't really fun right driving over to
00:20:58 00:21:01 the post office to draw a dr
00:20:59 00:21:03 you know drops this stuff off or even if
00:21:01 00:21:03 you have the post office come pick it up
00:21:03 00:21:05 from you
00:21:03 00:21:06 right it takes a little bit of time so
00:21:05 00:21:09 all in i would say
00:21:06 00:21:10 right to um you know do this entire
00:21:09 00:21:13 thing i probably spent
00:21:10 00:21:15 about five hours right i spent about
00:21:13 00:21:17 five hours to make 350
00:21:15 00:21:19 which at the end of the day and that
00:21:17 00:21:20 includes research purchasing packaging
00:21:19 00:21:22 at the end of the day that's that's not
00:21:20 00:21:23 bad right that's not bad but you really
00:21:22 00:21:25 need to be educated
00:21:23 00:21:27 on this you know sports cards pokemon
