                Thank you Luckiest.

                To answer your queries.

                I started without a formal business plan but with a business outline. The company is set up, the website is ready, pretty much every thing else is done. This is my background. I have been in auto finance for several years, but have dabbled in the purchase of general merchandise for quite sometime, buying and selling at a small scale. I feel this might be the natural progression. I just need advise and guidance on how to seek and find information regarding the purchase of surplus merchandise from businesses, basic information on what is the normal percentage paid on this kind of merchandise etc.

                 


                Any help will be appreciated.
