    looking to wholesale 1,000 units of torches, best place to advertise

    tried ebay, can't get a decent market of people to view, 30 day listing just ended on 15 views.

    Any ideas?

    Gumtree, hadn't thought of that...

    Amazonmarketplace?

    How about ebay but smaller batches, a market trader maybe interested in 50 or 100 but may see 1000 as too much of a gamble.

    We tried the 10,20 and 50 batches as well as the lot, it's just a section of ebay which is never visited.

    Maybe a stupid question but did you not check out where to sell them before you bought them (assuming you paid for them, with a view to selling)

    Are they decent branded or cheap generic torches? If cheapos then you will need all the luck you can get.

    Was it worth starting a thread because your having trouble shifting £100 worth of chinese touchs?

    Not chinese at all, a sub company manufactured them, and went bust before they even had a chance to sell.

    They've been sold at various home and garden centres.

    Not going to disclose the product, as that's self promotion.

    Its getting worst for you, Even the company that made them couldn't sell at a profit

    Well is it, not really....

    Company went under before they put the product on the market, so we took the stock as it was the only asset the company had...

    Maybe if you'd actually read what I wrote, instead of being judgemental, it'll all become a bit clearer... actually, for you, I doubt it...

    is there a non-thanks button?

    they have enough crap on there as it is!

    what price did you buy them at?

    I'm in the market for around 1,000 torches. I can offer £0.99 or £9.99 depending on what you view as a good offer? Hit me back - I'll be aware of all the details but my husband will be doing the transaction.

    Has the OP seen the light?(_;)

    Is no buy price, there's a cost to produce which was around £3.24 per unit.

    So yeah, we're taking a loss. It's more of a get rid rather than chasing a profit.
