Nova I totally agree with EVERYTHING you just said, text is not a good way to judge what someone meant or how they said it.

I was emphazing on marketplace and retail prices for a reason, because here in canada we also have overstock stores who sell an very low price, I kept on saying other than these big stores, the small players are not able to sell at those prices because it is not the reality of the market, I think I still learned lots about the US market.

No hard feelings towards no one but some people can just get immature and say anything without giving effort to understand what one is trying to say.

This will be my last post on the thread

uhm...yeah i have no idea what this thread is about, I lost track through all the long responses.
But if you're looking to profit in HM it's probably not going to happen since it's normally user to user sales, most people aren't looking for NWT sales unless it's for a really good deal (as in nowhere near retail, but closer to Nords Rack prices $99). eBay if you want to profit... People on these forums are too used to getting good deals for almost new jeans. Anything above $150 will take a longer time to sell.

If you want to know about canadian sales contact yelnats... he always picks up a few of the newer styles for the canadians and sells them in HM.

Yeah, the market in Canada is totally different. I've lived there for almost a year, and I've been an ebay seller here for quite some time too.

Im also curious, you say youve worked on ebay for years but according to your ebay history you have 49 feedback and have been a member since 06?

True Rock I am not sure you know what you are talking about, in one of your first posts you said companies like R&R sell wholesale to stores and then fix the price that they must be sold at, this is not true it is illegal to do this it is called price fixing, they give retailers a recommended retail price but it is up to the store what they sell for and they are not allowed to withdraw their goods from your shop because they don't like the price you are selling them for you have a contract with them which prevents things like this from happening and protects both parties.

hehe I am back again thanks for the heads up giz!
and yes Canadian market has nothing to compare to the US we just dont have the population.

The thread was to ask if jeans sell good here or not and moved on to me asking questions about how the US market works so I know what kind of prices people are looking for online. That way I know what I could sell for.

Tiff I never said you said anything immature, was not talking about you hun, I was gettin bashed for saying new season jeans at $49.99 is a ridiculously low price, but the matter of the fact is, it is and anyone that knows a thing or two on how ANY marketplace works will back me up on this one. I did not disagree, I just asked if someone knew how this was possible, instead I got opignions and comments for me to call customers stupid, I got a bit frustrated but I should not have I guess. This is a forum and people will speak out without answering the question or knowing what I was trying to get to.

Kelly I have had multiple ebay names.. and I worked for ebay companies, powersellers not personal only.

Also luxe.. that might be true.. but not in Canada... in canada its fixed retail price to keep the market fair.

It's all about the phrasing I guess...
It didn't sound like you were really asking, but sounded more like you were telling us to "prove it" rather than taking our word for it.

New season jeans at the sample sale sold for around $90-$100 *shrugs* that's just how it is in the US. Not sure if they were irregulars or imperfects.

Perception is everything. Tone is often mistaken in typed word.

Well to answer your question, yes, people do purchase jeans here. But, you will get a higher price for most of them on ebay (unless theyre a very rare stlyle that is on everyones wishlist here)

If you have any more questions feel free to ask them. Im the mall manager and I've been around for a while so if I can help anyone out, I will try my best!

This is a forum not a business class ;D

giz your kind of right I was asking for an explanation more than "proof" because i did not understand how it was possible, because I did say other than large overstock stores, sales or sample sales, not items on special, is it possible that jeans go for dirt cheap... that is why it did not make a whole lot of sense to me

your also right again Giz I was foolish to think that everyone replying to me knew what I was talking about in the market perspective.

Here's the way the market works in any environment:
(1) Products sold at above acquisition price = profit.
(2) Products sold below acquisition price = loss

If individuals are selling their products at $49.99, they are either:
A. making a minuscule profit
B. they are losing money so they can clear out their "old" products.
C. priced to attract consumers to their other products.
D. those who regularly price well below retail, and are looking to profit, must be acquiring their products at well below the selling price point.

It's simple as that.

All the above rules apply to new season products as well. They may in fact be acquiring new products at well below retail/"wholesale"

^ well then if that is what u were looking for (i must've missread?)

jeans retail prices in non overstock stores, before sales and not from sample sales then... most likely you will not find a bnwt pair of R&R jeans for under retail

but what I personally thought you were asking was how we find jeans NWTs from this season so cheap
and my answer woul dhave to be we search for sales, sample sales and purchase from overstock stores and THEIR retail prices or their sales...

so yes you were correct in a way but that was kind of a silly and pointless question
(not trying to be mean) but i mean it's impossible to buy from eluxury a new seasons pair new with tags before there are any special deals sales or promotion codes and sell for less unless it was given to you as a gift

but that's not what people do here

exactly strawberry! there has to be something fishy, like getting stolen trucks or ripping the supplier off and believe me it happens, people buy large stock and file bankruptcy and never pay.. a bunch of crap like that, scam artists exist as well, and its a profession, that is why i say selling a new style at $49.99 does not just happen like that, there is a reason. Or else they are loosing cash, when we get rid of stock it happens here and there that we sell at loss, only normal, we have no choice or we stay stuck with it. That is another reality.

Nova, that was not what I meant, I said it was impossible that a store can be selling new styles at those prices without it being a sale of some sort and I got bashed for it, but I am right!
