You can become an online retailer by purchasing items at below wholesale prices, then selling them on ebay, etsy, craigslist, Amazon, and other major retail sites, as well as on social networking websites and at upscale flea markets.

Sellers usually buy new or like-new merchandise for rock-bottom prices at thrift stores and yard sales, as well as statewide factory outlets, and sometimes even on craigslist or ebay.
