Are you one of those highly enterprising parents who like to take advantage of the back to school shopping season? All the parents complain about the back to school season because it is a very expensive time of the year. During these economically tough times, it is rather difficult for the parents to meet the back to school shopping expenses. You cannot run away from the other expenses and commitments just because you need to buy the school supplies for your kids. Instead of cursing the situation or postponing your shopping looking at alternative approaches to deal with the situation would be more useful.
One of the things that you could do is to buy the school backs from a bulk backpacks store and resell them to the other parents. All the parents are in the same predicament as you and they will be frantically searching for the school supplies online. If you are going to sell them backpacks it will make their life little easy. If in case you should decide to resell backpacks during the back to school season, here are few important factors to take into consideration.
The quality of the backpacks you order is very crucial. It is not enough that you find the best quality backpacks for yourself but it is even more important to find the best quality school supplies when you want to resell. Only when the quality is good people would come back to you the next year. Or else you would be ruining your reputation among your customers, in your neighborhood and among your friends to whom you sold the backpacks.
People will be looking for the backpacks and the other school supplies only for a very short window, after which their interest level is likely to shift to other things and you will not be able to sell any backpacks after that short window of interest. You should have your stocks readily available for sale before the back to school season starts. You cannot shop for the wholesale backpacks during the back to school season. If you want to buy backpacks for your kids then you could buy them during the back to school season but if you want to sell the backpacks you should be having the stock ready in good time.
Do not forget to spread the word around when you are trying to sell the school supplies. People should know that you are selling backpacks. Initially it may be little challenging but once parents hear about it they will spread the word for you and more customers will come to you as they would prefer to buy directly from you instead of ordering them online and waiting for them.
You will be able to buy backpacks at just 10% of the retail cost when you order them from a wholesaler. This will give you a massive profit margin. Try to keep your prices competitive so that you will be able to sell the entire stock fast.
