    Business question.
    My neighbor did an unusual selling approach. Many of the people buy items from China, but it takes forever to get to the USA, even with free shipping. This
    Neighbor has a stockpile of items he bought from China and he can ships the same items faster since he is in the USA for a bit extra. Seems the folks like it.

    I don't know what you call this approach, Reseller, Forwarding Agent??

    What is your opinion

    The way I see it, if he is purchasing already made products from China and then selling them at a profit, he would be a re-seller.

    Since he has taken title to the items then resells them he is a reseller.

    I have sold and bought a lot on ebay and see a lot of this going on.
    I don't mind paying more if I want something quickly, but usually buy directly from China.

    There are many businesses that buy in large lots from China, and stockpiles them, and then resale them. I know several in Atlanta Georgia. I even have a friend that buys 10,000 USD or more of items and then stores and resales.
