4 WAYS RESELLERS DON’T MAKE MONEY | First of all, not everyone who sells their kicks is a reseller. SneakHeat is about to keep it really real with you in this post. Blatant Resellers are the ones who cop about 7-30+ pairs of a general release and then try to “flip” them for more than retail. And here’s why they suck.
YOU’RE NOT EVEN | Making money. To be honest, resellers keep product for about 2-3 weeks before they even start “moving”. It’s just sitting there for that period of time because nobody likes you. Nobody wants to pay above retail just because the joker from up the street bought all of the pairs at my local store. They eventually end up lowering the price because they realize they aren’t selling.
THERE’S PLENTY | Of other aspects other than just “flipping” shoes. Think about gas, time spent waiting, time spent posting/advertising, the amount of time that the shoes just sit there because it was a terrible investment, and all of these things together make it very clear that you are still average. You will also lose some friends/support if you end up being a known reseller in the community.
SAVE YOURSELF | The trouble. Let Nike, Adidas, Jordan, etc. do the selling. You are not Donald Trump. You are not necessarily an entrepreneur either. You just suck. The reason Nike & Jordan brand keep raising the price is because EVERY SINGLE release is “selling out”. Why? Because resellers are out here on their grind and making sure they cop every size and every pair just to resell them again. My advice would be to either: go to sleep, don’t quit your day job, or go to sleep.
HAVE YOU CAUGHT ON | To the fact that Nike & Jordan do a lot of restocks? So now how do you look? You got about 14 pairs of Pink Foamposites in your house just sitting there and Nike is restocking them. You just look like a jackass and your “investment” has just turned into the most ridiculous purchase in the history of purchasing. Instead of wasting your time and looking like a fool, my advice would be: read a book, go workout, go to sleep, ride your bike, or go to sleep.
