i need money quickly. i have £300.
what could i buy as a wholesale thing, and sell off as separate articles, perhaps on ebay?- buy in bulk and sell on, basically.
also, where are the online wholesale sites?

Don't even bother. So many people are trying to get into that sort of thing that the profit margins are absolutely minuscule, no matter what type of product you're trying to flog. You're probably looking at 1-2% profit at the max, per item sold. If you don't sell your entire stock, you'll probably make a loss.

Any and all online wholesalers will have already been found by several other people trying to make a quick buck on eBay, all of whom are now competing to shift the stock they bought, and so are making barely any profit whatsoever.

In short, the market is saturated, especially if you're planning to use wholesale websites. I wouldn't bother risking your money trying.


Edit: If you managed to find a person who could offer you personally bulk discounts, it'd be more worth trying. But these people deal almost exclusively with established businesses and tradesmen. Not students with £300 to their name.
