    Some considerations of selling online are VAT, insurance and shipping which may make it unprofitable. Selling from a drop shipper may not work in your market.

    Most of the gadget products come from China. Are there are wholesalers in your market that purchase directly from China? The traditional role of the retailer is to "break bulk'. Perhaps you can purchase a case at a time.

    If u gain enough experience u can try purchase ur stuff from Alibaba (cheap) but u does need good negotiating skill and understand who u dealing with ....
    Yes i would agree to that,most people dont even make a business plan before starting,during the course of time they lose money and thats what destroys their venture
    Online business is definitely harder then making money "offline",because offline you can find a job even if you dont have any skills,just do some boring day to day job like selling stuff at the mall or something,but if you want to make it online,you need to have skills,patience,will power,endurance etc...

    The gadgets were just a example,but yes i do think a lot about shipping and how it would be possible to ship cheaply yet securely
    For now i am just researching and still learning about ecommerce i dont think i have even near enough knowledge to go head forward into a venture,not knowing what to expect and what to look for
    Thank you for all your replies,at least the last few posts were useful
    Thanks bogart and SonnyCooL
