The times when internet has evolved into the stage where people can easily buy and sell items overseas in real-time auction houses and pay them easily many may have noticed that if you have basic knowledge of some segment of items and can do basic calculations it's easy to make little profit reselling items in internet and that's what we are wondering about here today at thegamersdungeon.com. You don't have to be genius to do so. As I'm a gamer who has followed the markets for some time, though I'm not an expert in this issue, I'm about to try and bring up some instructions for other beginners in the game reselling.Shaking your beliefLittle reality check first. Games sells with very low amount of money compared to cars, estates, even furniture. This means you are making very shallow amount of profit per sale (unless you bought at overprice where you take some loss). This means you need to sell tons of stuff every month to gather up nice amount of money. If you really want to make more than hundred dollars a month there are few issues:You need starting budget to buy basic game inventory (of course if you want just to make few bucks at first you can just buy a few games but even for a decent smoothly running sales you'd need hundreds of dollars and that's small business that won't grant you enough profits to make a living out of it)You need to buy loads of games. Lets say that you're good at finding items cheap and know that they sell for much more for example:You buy a game for $15 and then sell it for $30. Sounds like great bargain But you have to remember that:You're most likely paying from $2 to $6 postage at buying stage depending of the item size ("big box" pc games are for example expensive to post) and whether it's delivery within your country or to overseas.
