Default truggy markup

Just got a question if anyone would know.

If you were selling say mugen Mbx6 T on ebay and it was drop shipped straight from mugen. What price would you imagine paying for them if you are selling them for $450 USD.

I imagine it would be for around the 300 to 350 mark, to make it a feasible business dont you think?

It depends entirely on how many units you buy.

new Mugens wholesale much higher then $350.00...beleive it or not, but the typical markup on a machine like a Mugen is about $50.00...and if you wish to compete with some of the larger stores it can be as low as $30.00........ As a business you need to be able to move a very high volume to stay alive with the typical margins we have today........There is very little profit selling kits....

it would almost seem unworthwhile to sell kits with such low margins; it's not like anyone's selling 500,000 mugen kits at retail! how much volume can there even be? i have no reason to doubt you supertib, sowhere DO retailers make their money? electronics? batteries? tires and wheels? fuel? it must be somewhere....
