    Buy from Walmart, sell on Amazon, get rich

    As a college student, Ryan Grant bought used textbooks from classmates and resold them -- the textbooks, not the classmates -- on Amazon. He now runs an entire company, buying clearance items at Walmart and selling them on Amazon. This year's sales should top $8,000,000 and profits will be around $2,500,000. Golly gee!

    This 28-year-old's company makes millions buying from Walmart and selling on Amazon

    In a podcast on his Twitter page, Grant explains "How to start selling on Amazon."

    When you sell things on Amazon, doesn't Amazon take a big percentage of the profit?

    Amazon's profit percentage on third-party sales varies, depending on the item. On items with typically high markups, such as jewelry, Amazon keeps 20%. On most electronics, Amazon keeps 15%. And, speaking of Amazon.......

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos just sold $1.1 billion worth of his stock

    Look what I found on Amazon. I'm thinking of ordering this book along with the 2022 World Almanac and the 2022 Guinness Book Of World Records.

    Where I work (at the post office) we deliver a lot of parcels from Amazon but we heard they're going to build a new facility in Culver City and start using their own drivers. Amazon sells almost everything and they will even deliver groceries and put them in people's refrigerators. I think they're trying to take over the country.

    As Walmart shifts away from building new stores and focuses on competing with online giant Amazon, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is shortening its name to Walmart Inc.

    Business Insider calls Walmart vs. Amazon "the clash of the titans." Walmart lost 3 cents today to close at $97.11. Amazon rose $4.88 to $1,179.14. (And then there is Sears/Kmart at $3.85 and JC Penney at $3.09.)

    Walmart and Amazon's long-simmering feud exploded in 2017 — and it's redefining retail
    Business Insider, Dec 15 2017

    Amazon and Walmart competed more fiercely in 2017 than ever before. It has quickly become the biggest feud in retail — and possibly all of business. With all the new features that have been unveiled, consumers are the clear winners.
