    Resale 101: Selling Wholesale Electronics: Local vs. Online

    So now that you’ve sourced your wholesale electronics merchandise, where are you going to resell it? To answer this question, you need to consider what business model suits you best. Do you prefer to deal with customers in person, or would you rather sell online? Or maybe a mix of both? This article will cover all of your options.

    One popular option for selling locally is setting up your own retail space. Having your business located in an area with high foot traffic or close to a heavily trafficked roadway is ideal.

    Resale 101: Taxes and Incorporation

    One major step in the process of setting up a business is figuring out your tax obligations. Although the regulatory framework is fairly similar across the United States, this can be a complex matter as different types of businesses may have different requirements. The registration process and tax obligations may also vary from state to state and even from one city to another. 

    Sales Taxes and Exemptions

    If you are a seller of tangible goods, chances are you are required to pay sales tax. The rate may vary from one state to another, with Delaware, Montana, Oregon, New Hampshire, and Alaska having a 0 percent sales tax. You may be looking at a tax of anywhere from 3 percent to 12 percent in other states. However, if you are conducting a resale business and buying stock for resale purposes only, you can apply for a sales tax exemption certificate

  8. Resale 101: Ultimate Guide to Selling Refurbished Electronics Online: Overview

    Refurbished Resale Business

    When considering new business options you can start on a limited budget, reselling merchandise has become a particularly interesting option. Reselling merchandise you purchased at a low price is the sort of business you can run (on any scale), from purchase to sales, from the comfort of your home. However, jumping headfirst into a business will bring you more trouble than profit. In fact stats show that around 20 percent of businesses close their doors one year after starting up. Only 30 percent of businesses survive their first decade. 

    In fact, if you are employed currently and are not sure whether you should leave your job and explore the entrepreneurial waters full time, starting your resale business on the side would be the best option for you, at least until you find the right market and business model to commit to.

    What Are The Benefits of Stocking Refurbished Rather Than New Electronics?

    Customer behavior has changed over the course of 2020. The outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic led to a large number of people being forced to work from home. This resulted in a shopping spree for laptops and other devices.

    This led to a rise in popularity in the resale industry, and saw a large increase in demand. The average buyer turned to refurbished electronics for their home office needs. If you are a reseller who offers, or is considering offering, refurbished electronics, and is looking for a reliable source to load up on inventory, you’ve come to the right place.

    Is It Worth Buying Last Year's Phone Models To Resell?

    There was a time when the refurbished smartphone market was relatively small and didn’t look to be going anywhere fast. Spin back to the early 2010s and an abundance of new models, consumer enthusiasm for anything shiny and new and an economic recovery following the 2008 crash, paired with customer willingness to take on credit debt, meant most customers were happy to trade their old phones in for brand new ones every couple of years. Refurbished smartphones were mainly the preserve of discounters and customers who were not able to take advantage of cheap credit deals.

    How times have changed! By 2019, global shipments of secondhand and refurbished smartphones had reached a total of 206.7 million units, with projections that this will increase to 332.9 million units by 2023. What in 2013 had been a small market, was by 2017 a global m
