How Can You Buy and Resell A Service?

There are times you feel that you are unable to make a service to sell. That does not mean that you cannot list a service for sale.

Buy a service
One can patrol in the marketplace to see a cheaper service that one can buy. Ensure that the service is affordable to you. Negotiate on the price and buy it.

List your service for resale
The next step is to list the service for a resale. The place to list the service may even be here on SEOclerks. You can now wait for a prospective buyer.

Make some profit
When you list the service add some money as profit. Sell and pocket the profit.

Thanks for the idea- but I think this idea will not become 100% honest. I can not copy and paste others idea and I can not make it worldwide to re sell. If I copy and paste any one service than any once can make a complain against me on SEOClerk and the service can get vanish. The better idea is to take the idea from other's services and to make some brilliant packages for your worldwide clients. In this way you can get in success.

Thanks
Centurion

The idea might not be 100% but still not many services are 100% perfect. An idea is only good if tried out. I think it is not really coping an idea. You only buy and resell. That is business.

I never tried doing buy and resell a service. I did not know that it could possibly do. If things like that is allowed then many seller would come up to the idea that this business is another good source of additional income.

I think there are some sellers who do the reselling of service with fiverr and other places. I have seen some of the people who do resell the service. And for them it is easy for those things to work out. However I have noticed that some resellers have to increase the price for it to work.

I never been selling in fiverr but I heard that you can sell your items there. We have many local online shop here like lazada,olx and carousel and all these applications are responding very well. There has also minor issues but it is not a big deal.

Not sure about the local shop selling. I have found out that resell services have their own set of the limitations. And considering local selling works more better with the facebook.I am not sure how that would be in fiverr. If I want to choose the local sellers, I'd choose similar sites for the same reason. Not fiverr.

Same here I would rather sell my items in Facebook than selling it to Fiverr which I completely dont know. I have no idea how this works and how many people subscribed to it unlike in facebook millions of people subscribers and still counting. The more subscribers the more business we can do.

Yes and the issue with the fiverr is that the amount of the money being earned and the type of the customer there. It is not easy. Lot of bad buyers are there with the fiverr. Which is something I try to avoid as much as possible.

Bad buyers or known as bogus buyers are really waste of time. I have never experienced that in Ebay. I will not try to use Fiverr based on what you have said. Dealing with bogus buyers is really frustrating.

I have seen a lot of them in my freelancing. Like those who demand something for low cost and when they tell if you price things low I will buy a lot from you. I avoid those type of clients. Fiverr is full of them.

Fiverr should do something about it. They should give a strict advice for those and give a certain punishment for the bad buyer,it would reflect on what this bad customers in Fiverr image.

Fiverr is in profit despite having those issues. And they are less likely to change that part. I would say that they may not change because they support buyers over sellers. Many disputes end badly in favor of buyers. So it's complicated.

That is the problem. If they will not be transparent to both sides, I dont think this site will stay longer. So many online shopping site today and they have very good service.

They seem to be forcing the sellers to do this and that. And just like freelancer.com they are making more money from the freelancer than the buyers. So it can be some of the time not that good.

I think so too. They really into the buyers interest not the seller. They gain more from them.

You cannot resell a service at the same price you bought it. Why will you be reselling the service in the first instance? We resell to make profit and so the price should be higher but reasonable

You could play it safer by finding the buyers first. When you know what you are being paid, it would be easier to find a cheaper service to sell. That's what I would do to avoid making a loss because there is no guarantee that you'll find someone who'll buy a service that you are selling.

I am still not sure about how the resell system works. You have to price the work a bit higher cost for the resell to work. I mean if you get 5 dollar work and selling it for the 15 dollar. And that too with better clients. Then possible that it may work around with it. Another thing is that resell system often requires you to have proper resell system there. I have seen few fiverr and the upwork users are going to be working heavy in there.

stbrians

I did not not fiverr and upwork do work on the same principle. It can easily work out. The person whom you are buying should know that you are buying for resale. In that way you do it with ease. Once clients knowcyou can bectrusted will come over for more.

That is one tricky move, it's kind of tempting. I haven't done buying and reselling a service. But, I think it's not really ideal. Is it really okay to do it?
Yes, I understand, once you buy it, it's yours but you don't want someone reporting you. I'm still not sure about this, but I repeat, it's a tempting way to earn money, your mind is so wise for businesses.

I agree. Eventhough you bought it in the first place, doesn't mean you can use it for your own profit. Unless both of you agreed that you will resell his services and give a small amount of appreciation, that might work. But for me, since every service has its own branding, every service provider have their own rights to fight for the authenticity of their services.

Definitely, it's tempting but not ideal just as you have already mentioned. Some people might find it to be seeking the cheap and easy way to make money from selling a service bought.

To be honest with you, if I have any slight clue that the service is not your original work, I'm definitely not going to buy it even though I'm aware you own it now.

From the word go for the person you are buying from should know the intention. They will be glad to sell to you. First they will be selling and secondly they will know their work is marketable. They will ask you to buy more.

You will also becknown to provide high quality services for sale. You will build your reputation.

When you list the service add some money as profit. Sell and pocket the profit.but its not good.

I know it might not look idealistic, but basically, all you do is act like the middleman. As an analogy, let us take fruits and vegetables as an example. What you do is you're the go-between the farmer (supplier) and the market store owner (retailer). You get a little fee by being the bridge between both parties. That doesn't look so bad.

ajahcuizon

This is a good strategy for people who doesn't have time to accept and finish a service but I think it will not be fine with some customers. Especially when they found out that the service you are selling came from another person and you're just like a middle man, they might think of it as stealing of other service eventhough you aready bought it. They might think that why would they get a service from you if they can get the same service from other people in a lower price. I think the best thing here is that, you should do your best to not letting your customer know about it and you can really earn money without doing a service and just reselling your own bought services in a higher price.

When a retailer knows that a wholesaler bought from a manufacturer and is reselling does not refuse to buy. Trade involves buying and reselling for profit. It so happens with services.

Yes, of course, you can. This method has been done by dozens of workforce agencies all over the world since the beginning of time immemorial. As a personal agency, your primary goal is to obtain clients for a service, you then outsource that service, and you get commission after the project is through (without telling the client of course). Plain and simple and in my point of view I don't think it's unfair and illegal.

Yes why not try it. The steps you gave are very helpful and for sure we can use this in case we decided to resale some service. I guess at first few will get to noticed your product but in time for sure as long you have your own brand and you add your own unique and style, more people will get to notice your service.

Exactly. It is s good idea of selling high quality services. You can also learn from the others.

Honestly, I don't know much about it. I am not aware of how to buy and resell a service. I find it easier to buy and sell physical products compared to services. I find it difficult to describe the service to prospects. Customers may not be able to visualize what you do.

Same as mine. I did buy and sell items too and I posted it in Ebay. I found out that many good customers in Ebay than in local online shopping site. It is good actually because dealing with bad customers is really frustrating.

I agree that dealing with bad customers is really frustrating especially those who are rude. eBay is the world's online marketplace and it is great to hear that you were able to buy and sell items. Do you have the drop shipping business or you sell your own products?

I was sell my own products. Ebay has the most strict and yet very organized online shopping I have ever known. It is easy to deal with the customers there. I highly recommended it.

That is amazing that you sell your own products. I agree that eBay has a very organized online shopping platform. eBay has some free features that may help increase traffic to your listings and also your sales.

online brokers exist and I always think that if you can do an honest job of sourcing for content that other people cannot access and market for yourself if you have the market then you have solved a problem. You have created a link between the creator and buyer which is what online writing sites do.

I think that you are talking about some type of arbitrage, where you buy a service at a low price and sell it at a higher price. This could work however you need to be extremely careful. If your buying your service at a really low price it may not be a quality service and that may compromise the quality that you promise. Eventually you may loose your customer because of this. However If you find a way for this to work, this is not a bad idea.

Am glad you like the idea. If it is possible to get some quality work at a cheaper price and resell at a higher price then the better.

Somebody came with an idea of getting the idea and using it to get your own.

What happened to getting your own unique service or product to sell? It would pay better. It's not like buying cryptocurrency and holding them to appreciate, then sell for more profit.

It's a little bit different here and I wouldn't advise you to follow such footsteps because it's only going to make you lose credibility.

Most of the businesses in the world working as resellers. For example grocery store buy supplies in bulk from wholesalers at lower prices and sell them in their shop at price they want, that's why there is so many different prices for any product, because everyone set their own profit margin calculated as per their expenses and desired wages.
Well, the same thing exactly is with online reselling anything. If you know that you can sell some SEO service for example at price of $10, then you search for best supplier with good reputations and cheaper price so you can make some money. Whole new world of reselling, called DROPSHIPPING is based on this and there is thousands of such websites online which work as dropshipper

You can buy or sell your services thru online or in the market, there are a lot of sites where you can post your services or avail one. Just make your proper research to make it worth it.

You are right. The market is just there for your taking. It is better to grab the bull by the horns and sell your service.

That can work if you resell it in another platform but offering it in the same platform? The chances of making a worthwhile profit is quite small.
