We are online retailers. We buy products wholesale and sell them on Amazon.com.
We are looking for someone who can do research online and find products that we can buy at wholesale prices.
***THIS IS A TEST PROJECT - WE EXPECT YOU TO FIND 20-40 PRODUCTS AND THEN TOGETHER WE WILL COME UP WITH A PRICE FOR ADDITIONAL RESEARCH***
Before you get started, please be aware of the following:
Pricing: With thousands of sellers on [url removed, login to view], competition is cut-throat. Some sellers are prepared to buy items at wholesale for 40%of retail price, and sell them at 45-50% of retail price. Examples of products that are sold at razor thin margins are books, cd’s, dvd’s, technology, etc.
Ranking: Just because items are being listed on Amazon, that does not imply that they are selling. Please familiarize yourself with Amazon’s ranking system.
Please adhere strictly to the following specifications for products:
The item must have a brand name
The item must weigh less than 10 lbs
Item is not an ingestible product (like vitamins or foods)
Item is not perishable
Preferably the item can be purchased wholesale from within the United States or shipped from a distribution center in the USA.
If the company is not located in the United States, they must have the proper documents to export to the USA so that their shipments are not held up at customs.
The item is smaller than the size of a microwave. (Usually larger items are costlier to ship, so we ask that you refrain from finding large items)
Retail price must be at least $40.00
Wholesale price per product is no more than 40% of its retail price
Item cannot currently be offered for any less than 80% of its retail price on [url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view] item ranking cannot be higher than 200,000. During your research you may notice that items that have the best rankings, likely also have the thinnest margins. You will thus want to stick to products in the middle. This means that there is a demand for them, but not huge.
The results should be delivered in an excel spreadsheet with the following headings
- Name of product
- Name of supplier
- Contact phone number
- Contact email of supplier
- Description of product
- Wholesale price
- Minimum wholesale quantity order
- Retail price of the product
- UPC code (if available)
**Please note that you will have to send emails to many suppliers and then wait for them to respond with their product information. We therefore assume that this project will have a deadline of 7-10 days after acceptance**
Please reference the text of this posting in your bid. Due to the many generic bids that we receive, we will only respond to bids that show they have read our posting.
