If you do retail arbitrage, these websites are also the top stores for retail arbitrage sourcing. If you have bought profitable products through retail arbitrage, then check if you can buy them online. This will save time, money, and effort and allow you to look for other products.

While it may seem like that's a long list of stores to look at, the truth is you need to have an even longer list. This massively expands your product research and increases your chances of finding new items to sell.

You can check all these stores in less than a month. Not all these stores have clearance or markdown sales every day, so you will probably just need to visit some of them once a month.

The Best Time To Look For Online Arbitrage Deals

Big-box retail stores like Walmart have clearance every day. But the best time to buy in Walmart is usually the first 5 days of the month or the end of a season when they have the most number of items on clearance. However, they will continue to mark down items throughout the month until all clearance items are sold. So it's good to check Walmart every week. This is also a useful retail arbitrage sourcing tip.

At Old Navy, markdowns on clearance happen every Sunday and Monday. But they also have monthly markdowns that can add another 30-40% off the discounted product price. So you need to know each store's markdown schedule to schedule the best time to scan them for online arbitrage deals.

What is an Online Arbitrage Deal?

An online arbitrage deal is simply a product purchased at a cheap price from an online platform and then resold at a higher price on a different online platform, resulting in a profit for the seller.

An example of online arbitrage would be buying a Lego Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon Expert Building Kit for $197 on clearance at and selling it for $847 on Amazon. Or buy 9 Nintendo Super Mario Kart Boy’s T-shirts for $3.95 each on clearance at Old Navy and sell them in bundles of 3 for $29.95 on Amazon.

However, dropshipping is not the same as online arbitrage. There was a time when dropshipping was almost the same as online arbitrage, but Amazon and eBay have banned this practice of buying from one online retail platform and shipping straight to the buyer. As an online arbitrage seller, you need to prove that you are the seller on record, so the packaging should specify you as the seller. You need to be aware of this to avoid your Amazon dropshipping being tagged as illegal. Even eBay and Walmart don't allow dropshipping of retail products.

What Products make Good Online Arbitrage Deals?

You want to look for products that will give you at least $5 profit and 50% return on the best online arbitrage websites, according to Nikki Kirk. Another Amazon FBA seller, Warner Field, has a lower threshold of $3 profit and 35% Return. This gives you more products to consider but you have less margin for error.

I prefer having an ample profit margin for price movements so that even if the price tanks; you don’t end up losing a lot of money. In a highly competitive online business, you want to stay in business and manage risks and let your competitors make more mistakes.

You find good online arbitrage opportunities by scouring clearance items from online stores. It's like scanning a clearance aisle in a brick-and-mortar store. Once you find these deals, you want to put them into your online arbitrage sourcing list.

What is an Online Arbitrage Sourcing List?

One of your important assets is your online arbitrage sourcing list, which is your list of products to buy. When you go out to buy in a retail store, or go online and buy, you want to have a sourcing list to save time. You don't want to be guessing about the items to buy.

If you have an existing store, then a sizeable portion of your list are the products you need to replenish your store inventory.

If you're starting out or want to add new products to your store, you must make or get a new sourcing list.

Should You Buy Online Arbitrage Sourcing Lists

No, it's not a good idea to buy an online arbitrage sourcing list. These lists are sold and sent to thousands of online arbitrage sellers and that is a recipe for the prices to tank.

You want to build the list yourself with your own categories and criteria. If you are doing Amazon online arbitrage, find products in categories where you are ungated. This decreases the chance that you will be competing with hundreds of sellers. But if you are brand new, it's ok to look at open categories with a lot of competitors and just work your way to getting ungated.

The good thing is you can make this process of searching for products easy by using the right online tools.

You need a long list of online stores and a good set of online arbitrage tools to do online arbitrage successfully. Adding online arbitrage to retail arbitrage expands your product research capabilities and gives you a better chance of competing in a crowded online marketplace.

However, I recommend that you expand your online activities beyond e-commerce. I just find Amazon FBA or any e-commerce business model to be easily saturated by competitors, especially foreign sellers in China. With too much competition, it's becoming harder to find profitable products, and I find it harder to scale up and grow an e-commerce business.

The best online business for me is still local lead generation because it is simple to build and scale while still presenting massive growth opportunities. And because of the number of local businesses, the market is not yet saturated. In fact, it's hard for foreign competition to break into this business, which makes it my #1 choice.
