    As for those software prices - You need a lot of people at £12 a month to make a decent living. There are far better markets to be in.
    Eek, there are loads of profitable businesses around this. Prep centre is one, FBM Distribution another, scanning software, repricer software, scanners. The guy doing that £12 a month software has seriously underpriced it.

    Basically it's like the gold rush. Most won't get anywhere, some get a good find, but mostly the people selling the shovels made all the money.

    I know - it's the underpricing that I dislked - once someone has underpriced it others have little choice but to compete at similar price points as they can't differentiate themselves enough.

    There's some better software about now that moves up and down in a range. If two people use a penny repricer it kills the listing, so I use one that runs down (including aginst Amazon) and then it jumps back up. Works well if only two using them, or Amazon.

    The other thing, to do really big money you have to ship up a lot of stuff and so logistically you need to hire people and scale, otherwise it's not worth it.
