      Having an online pound shop is interesting. How would you do the carriage prices for the items?

      There are plenty of suppliers who can help you get started with an online pound store. You can purchase a product for a pence and sell for a pound. Very nice profits indeed. Check this link for all of your online pound store needs.

      I am still working on suppliers and setting up the online shop. I am thinking I will start with an eBay store and if that takes off I will expand. What do you think?

      Opening an online pound shop using eBay could work but I am concerned about the eBay charges and post charges taking away your profits. One thought for you is to purchase pound shop items then sell them for the going price on eBay. Often you can make off with some nice profits “flipping” pound shop items this way. You can approach this two ways – first try finding some items from your suppliers or at your local pound shop that may go for a higher price on eBay. Often books, camping items, tools and electronics can go for a 100% markup or more. Second you can look on eBay for items often found in pound shops, then get them from your suppliers or local pound shop and resell.

      If you want to stick with the pound shop concept here is an eBay store that was set up already – it’s in Singapore but it can give you an idea of how to do this:

      eBay Singapore Store

      This store sells a lot of cosmetic items but I believe you can find other items and build your own store identity. Good luck!

      Thank you for this information. When I set up my store I will probably go with free post on orders of 10 or more and sell only in the UK of course. I found a supplier on Wholesale Suppliers & UK Wholesale Products Trade Directory - eSources.co.uk that can provide me with a variety of containers and baskets. I will start there and expand!
