    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking to start an online business selling Sweets/candy, it will all be pre-packaged items and will not be opened by me or anybody else.

    I am planning to buy wholesale from companies and re-selling to online customers, has anybody got any advice or tips?

    Are there any special legal requirements? I am not going to be making anything myself as i said.

    I am 17 and looking to make small amounts of money because of the low wage i currently get.

    I am 17 too,
    I used to work alongside my dad and made over 700 pounds... Sadly I kind of stopped due to products I were selling were then unavailable and became really high in prices,
    I'm thinking of going back to online buisness if you need any wholesale websites I'd be happy to help.

    Selling candy is a no no because it is a food item and is under certain restrictions... Good Luck!

    Are you going to be using ebay or an ecommerce website of your own?
