Isn’t it every retailer’s dream to be able to sell products without holding stock in a warehouse?

Buying from cheaper sources, stocking them at fulfillment centers and selling them for a price high enough to make the model profitable- this sales concept has existed for a while now.

Tracy Smith, founder of entrepreneurgirl.net and creator of YouTube videos for small businesses has been implementing retail arbitrage with physical stores like Walmart and Goodwill. The reason she prefers chain stores is so she can order the same products in bulk and achieve geographical distribution.

With the advent of online retail, arbitrage takes on a very new meaning. From stocking to shipping, delivery and returns management, fulfillment companies can do it for you.
