Works for all browser's, the basic version is free. But for grammar, sentence structure etc it's well worth the $60 I paid when it was on sale.

I'm on my phone now and don't have it here, but I'll run this through later and post the fixed version. You'll notice the changes!

Wrong thread, no need to hijack it for this nonsense.

So you have an agenda here....

In actuality alot of people from G**Damn Lakewood, Monsey, and BP have done very well in the E-commerce world and continue to do so
Yup.

Though I definitely don't fully understand how people are borrowing money at the aforementioned rates of 15% and making monsey. After that and overhead doesn't really make sense.

Gross margins on PL needs to be at least 100% usually 150+

Good for you. Maybe I'm nave, but I've seen enough.

Even with 5% margins, and I'm referring to NI margins, (Chareidim just don't seem to get the difference between Gross Margin and Net Income), and 25% Inventory stocking, and an investor for 10%, you're -19.5% cash flow before you open shop.

But people live in LaLa land.

A buying group that flips doesn't need high margins, no fees, returns etc. But 15% a year means nothing

If they buy an item for $200 and flip it for 220 a day later, it's irrelevant. If they do this over and over thats real money

I don't have a good understanding of their business model. I assume their marhins are enough. where do they unload the goods?
AFAIK there is no other way to make money on non PL...
