Sourcing Online | How a Busy Parent Buys Inventory

[MUSIC] Sourcing for Poshmark on a
shoestring budget how the busy parent buys inventory Hi
and Welcome to Vynes Apparel if this is your first time visiting my name is
Nykole and I share what I’ve learned and know about Poshmark
in hopes of giving you useful information for success if you’re
someone that has a full-time job and a family and you’re trying to balance your
job your life and growing on Poshmark sourcing online may be a valuable option
for you when I first started on Poshmark I pulled what I had in my own closet and I
sold everything that I thought was in good enough condition to sell I was
serious about being successful even if it meant selling what I still loved and
could still wear I was dealing with a very depressing stressful situation and
I was determined to get out of it gladly Poshmark helped with that after I
ran out of my own clothes I had to restock inventory
I started going by thrift stores and chasing down yard sales but it started
to be too much for me because I was taking the little time I had with the
kids to run around town searching for deals so I decided to start sourcing
online if you’re in this by yourself like I am anything that can be
streamlined and made simple is always welcome you’re already strapped for time
and trying to balance life in general so working smarter instead of harder should
be a goal before you get started set a budget and keep shipping handling and
taxes in mind you will get more bang for your buck when your budget is larger but
if you’re trying to run a household while investing on inventory chances are
you don’t have a whole lot to spend at one time so you’ll need to do some
research and look for things that are wanted or searched for and balance that
with quality the cost per item and shipping costs if sourcing online is
something you think you’ll be interested in there are four ways you can do this
Wholesale, Bulk returns, Sick stores and Thrifting buying wholesale wholesale is
where you buy items at a highly discounted price in order to resell with
a profit when searching for wholesalers look for no minimum orders
required meaning you by one bundle or ten there’s no minimum
to spend and it’s easier to stay within budget
also look for wholesalers that don’t require a business license you can
always get a license in the future to broaden your choices but if you’re first
getting started this money can be used for inventory plus this is helpful on a
tight budget the wholesaler must be searchable you should be able to find
reviews online if they’re reputable if you would like to view the list of
wholesalers I compiled I put a link in the description box to my website on the
sourcing page it’s a short list for now but there’s wholesalers listed that
don’t require your license and don’t have a minimum order price and some
offer mix-and-match bundles where you can get a variety of wholesale items in
one bundle note though mix-and-match items are randomly chosen for you so you
won’t be able to actually choose the items you want but this is still a good
option for saving time you’ll actually save more time since you don’t have to
make choices of your own buying returns this method is where you find a large
distributor and buy bulk items that have been returned these items are
uninspected but it’s still a good opportunity to get good inventory at
used prices you can order anything from household goods to shoes you can’t pick
and choose for individual items but you’ll get a matrix for what’s included
the downside to this method is the risk of getting duds but it’s well worth the
risk if your sales exceed what you spent shipping and handling is also high with
this method so keep this in mind in regards to your budget sick stores, sick
stores are department stores that are going out of business and are having
constant sales in attempts to generate profit I won’t call out any names but
these stores have large websites and have several brick-and-mortar locations
when looking for inventory go straight to the clearance filter you can find
really good deals at a fraction of retail many times they also have a
coupon code you can apply for more savings
thrifting online there are two ways to do this you can find an online thrift
store or you can search sites like Facebook or Craigslist online thrifting
is pretty much like thrifting in person you’re just
home instead of driving around when using this method be sure to read
descriptions and only buy what you can get a return on if you want to learn
more about online thrifting there’s a link in the description box if you
choose to use Craigslist or Facebook only operate in safe conditions meet in
a well-lit area in a public location and take someone with you if possible
in conclusion online sourcing is an option that can save time and possibly
money depending on your location if you’re a busy person shaving time on
tasks when possible is essential in helping to create balance and staying
mentally healthy I hope this video has been helpful and giving you ideas for
sourcing when you’re juggling life and Poshmark
learning efficient ways to buy inventory saves time and energy leaving more time
for the things that are most important and as always have fun explore the
community create connections and make some money Happy Poshing!
