I just started doing FBA by selling clearance stuff and some used books from what I found on your videos and a few other Youtubers and I am consistently around $3500 in sales a month for the last few months. Happy to be a par of this round's mentorship program and some of the tips you've offered have already blew my mind (Love the 5 places to source video!). Thanks for all you do!

This proves what so many folks that try to sell 'how to sell on Amazon/Ebay' programs do NOT sit on the beach all the time and travel all the time and make money. You two do take long vacations but, you see that your sales fall and it isn't running by itself. You have to hustle every day. No slacking off. It's a hungry beast! Thanks for sharing!
RALLI ROOTS (5 months ago)
absolutely! this job takes a ton of hard work and dedication!!!
Adriana Arg (6 months ago)
What do u do when going on vacation? Remove ALL of your listings? or Put a note: won't fulfill until X date?
The Anqud's (6 months ago)
Great video. This is my dream! I hope to be able to be a great reseller one day. Just had a newborn baby girl last month so it may be a bit yet before I can get some good inventory. Thanks for the inspiration!
Cullen Sampson (8 months ago)
Can you make a video talking about taxes?
Andrew Cole (8 months ago)
So out of 150k in sales you make 40k each per year. That's great, especially because your not killing yourself's with work.
Cody Mieras (10 months ago)
Dude I love you guys. I always tell my friends and kids you can make it as long as you never give up
Susan Correia (1 year ago)
One of the most inspiring videos for me. THANK YOU! Time for me to start working really hard so I can get back into reselling and go from part time to full time. I’m burned out in my low paying corporate job and want to work from home. I love going to thrift stores and it’s become my passion. My full time job hardly has any passion. Thanks again for sharing and it really helped me to learn a lot. God bless!
Claudia Hysendlekwa (1 year ago)
Thank you .. you inspired me to start reselling my designer clothes that i dont wear , plus all the zara shoes and designer labels .I want to be a reseller like you both xxx

I know I have seen this in other of your videos but what is the name of your store on Ebay
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
the one we share publicly is stores.ebay.com/thehiplion we have multiple stores but that is our public one.
Amanda Ray (1 year ago)
I think this was the first video that I watched from you all back in February and I have learned so much ftom you since then. I am about a week or two shy from my Ebay 2 month anniversary and today was a milestone because I hit 100 active listings lol. I am about 15 sales away from hitting the 100 mark, which is also my last qualifier to becoming a top-rated seller. I can’t thank you enough for all of your insights and advice!!!!
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
That's so awesome!! Keep up the great work!
Joel Hinojosa (1 year ago)
Hello guys you too are a inspiriarion to my wife and me. We watch all your videos, Ryan you handled yourself with class on the video where they questioned your sales. Thank you. My wife and I just started a few months back I am doing private label and she and I started selling on ebay and hope to start FBA by June and wholesale 2019. Learn one thing at a time. It is alot of work but its fun working with my wife thanks for the videos.
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
:) no worries at all! Thank you so much for the support! we wish you both the best in your reselling journey :)
Corrine Donovan (1 year ago)
Do you have a video explaining, or can you share here how you invested your $200 when you started? Thanks! :)
Corrine Donovan (1 year ago)
Cool! I'll check out that video. I'm in WA state and it's been raining like crazy and so the garage sales are pretty slim right now. I've been cleaning out my house and listing things as well as going thrifting here and there to start. Thanks for always responding so fast! You two are my favorite to watch and learn from. Thank you!
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
we kinda talk about it in our about us vid but we should do another on :) we went to garage sales.

RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)

Heather Schrom (1 year ago)
Husband and I have started reselling this yr and are getting pretty big into it, question is about obtaining business licence to sell online, is that necessary
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Cool! we can't give legal advice sorry, you'd need to check with your state and local government. everything we do is run through our corporation.
Smith Michelle (1 year ago)
Do you have any recommendations for buying wholesale goods? Where do I start looking and how do I know if they are legitimate or not? Thanks!

Not doubting you guys, but why not show your stats on eBay?
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
This was not solely ebay. it's even in the title of the video lol, ebay & wholesale. I'll be sure to show our full ebay account next time for you... ;)
matt Galindo (1 year ago)
Yes, but for just this segment it was solely eBay, I'm sure you have store manager. Why not show some purple graphs? Thanks
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
because our business is not just ebay. we do a lot of wholesale. all goes into paypal
Antonio (1 year ago)
Just came across your youtube channel and I was wondering do you have a video explaining how you both got started in this business
Antonio (1 year ago)
Thanks for the speedy replies I appreciate the help RALLI :)
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
charity shops, boot sales and auctions :)
Antonio (1 year ago)
Thanks, Also i was just watching your eBay & Amazon Reseller: Can you make $52,000/yr selling stuff online? video and the second point you made was that people should source items from garage sales and thrift stores only thing is im from the uk and we rarely have garage sales and dont really have thrift stores what could you recommend instead
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Antonio for sure 😊 check out about us video. - The Ralli Roots Story

PchGaming (2 years ago)
i have a question, do you guys buy wholesale lots and resell? if so, where can you guide us to go. The wife and I have started reselling and hit about 899.00 on Ebay this past month but want to take it bigger than our current system. Some information on this or just an arrow twords the right direction would be awesome ! thanks!
PchGaming (2 years ago)
got it, thanks for the reply !
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Detoxicated1 yes. A lot of what we do is larger wholesale buys. That's great that your making some $ on eBay! I don't think that you are entirely ready for wholesale though. You'd want to have at least a few grand liquid to work with. My suggestion would be to maybe check out some liquidation auctions in your area and see if you can pick up some smaller bulk buys.
chats and videos (2 years ago)
I didn't realize you had been doing this for such a short time....very impressed. I've been selling on eBay since 03 but not full-time until recently, also still haven't branched out to Amazon yet ....I'm curious what were you guys doing prior to this?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Brenda s yeah for sure! We've put a lot into this biz in a short time. We're going to do an about us video soon where we'll talk more about our backgrounds 😊 thanks for watching!

Dom Geo (2 years ago)
Total Gross sales from Dec 2016 until now.....$1,749.76.....Pay Pal is pushing $1,300.....net probably around $1,000ish! Last month was my best at $589.00 gross, and $320 net! Once again Thank You 2 so much for the inspiration I needed to get off my butt, and start selling! Keep up the good work. P.S. These numbers are with me putting so little effort forward......like 8 hrs a month with driving, listing, and shipping! Still have almost $2k in items sitting in store waiting to be bought! Your guys really are the best! Oh, and shout out to Chris Dunn who led me to your channel!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Hey no worries Dom! Great start, you should be proud! Let's go CHRIS :) lol, good peeps.
Christopher Espinoza (2 years ago)
Thanks for the video!!!!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
no worries!
theshredguy (2 years ago)
You started in 2016 and grossing that much already? Congrats and HOW? Just volume? How many items would you say you list per day?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Yeah! Lot's and lots of volume and keeping our average sales price as high as possible. On ebay? about 80-100 a week.
Michael S (2 years ago)
Do you sell under another eBay ID, other then THL, I don't see these #'s ?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Michael S you won't find most of our sold items because we list good til canceled. That doesn't work with sellers like us 😏
Michael S (2 years ago)
I was looking at your sold items on eBay ...
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Ebay and wholesale. You wouldn't be able do see our ebay numbers you don't have access to out act lol, not sure what you're looking at.
Dag 2016 with only $200. Man you're an inspiration. I'm working to get my numbers and listing up. Great content once again.

Johanna Kagarice (2 years ago)
Hi Ryan & Ali, Just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate the way you communicate your success to us newbies. I am a stay at home mom and very interested in starting a small eBay business, nothing crazy. I'd like to start by making just an extra $200-300 per month and see what happens. Your videos have already helped me tremendously! So thanks for what you do. Stay humble & God Bless!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Johanna Kagarice 😊 thank you so much! That is a wonderful goal. An extra few hundred bucks a month can be life changing! You can do it! All the best.
Edward Gonzales (2 years ago)
Wow Ryan way to rub it in my face. Lol . I really am feeling the effect of this 3rd quarter. I'm only 5 months in this reselling game and still learning. Would you say you saw the most growth when you started implementing wholesale? I feel like used clothing and shoes can take me so far. Not saying that I don't do well, but I want to,like any business, maximize my profits.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Edward Gonzales haha 😊 yeah definitely, wholesale is the next step for growth in my opinion, but it takes time and capital to grow the right way.
Theresa Gross (2 years ago)
Thank - You, so much for this AMAZING video! I'm using this as my motivational tool because if you and Alli can do it, SO CAN I! You guys rock and if people would just apply what you say, it can be done. Can I ask what you would say just your ebay without the wholesale brings you? The reason I ask is for those of us who don't do wholesale. I know that I only do ebay roughly about 8-10 hrs. a week and can gross around $1,800 a month. I'm going full time in September and Have serious goals for myself. Again, Thank - So much for sharing with myself and other reseller's. Have fun on your upcoming vacation!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Theresa Gross you can absolutely do it too! Wholesale is about 60% but that's only because we've focuses on it because it's easier lol. If we put more work into eBay it would be a lot more as well 😊
lindsay teague (2 years ago)
Woah! Well done ! I love your work/life balance; spot on. Great attitude and very inspiring - I'd love to be making that! Setting goals is something I dont do - I think I will be now!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
lindsay teague thank you!!! 😊 yes, setting goals is so important! All the best!
Smith Lopez (2 years ago)
First the lighting in this video was spot on. You l looked great.Even your tank looked nice. This was only eBay sales right? Will you be doing an Amazon update? Your humble everyone who watches your videos knows that. And over 50% is still money so money. However every time I watch one of your videos my wife is like I really think we need to step up our game. So thanks for that. Look forward to the next video.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Smith Lopez haha thank you! Yes, this is just eBay and wholesale. We'll do more on amazon later in the year. Definitely want to get our FBA $ up! Your wife is right! Lol step it up 😜
TiKiMakesStuff (2 years ago)
If you don't mind me asking what kind of stuff are you buying up for Q3/Q4?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
TiKiMakesStuff ALL THE THINGS! lol 😂 electronics, home goods, auto, toys, books, winter clothes etc.
Amen Panesar (2 years ago)
Absolutely brilliant...I'm currently an Amazon FBA seller but I've not sold anything on Ebay to be honest I really don't know what types of products sell on there
Amen Panesar (2 years ago)
So true my friend! I'll defo give Ebay a try I have some shoes I can start with lol
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Amen Panesar nice! FBA is actually a bit harder than eBay just because of the restrictions. You can sell almost anything on eBay

RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)

Dusty ole Homestead (2 years ago)
Hi Ryan, Have you ever had dealings with 888lots? I was just wondering, because I have only heard really bad things about bulq. I also asked Casey the same question. Thanks for all you do, its been a huge inspiration!
Dusty ole Homestead (2 years ago)
Thanks Ryan, I work alone and sourcing is killing me, it takes so much time! I need another way to get inventory. I look forward to any future info.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Dusty ole Homestead no worries. Bulq isn't great. We're about to start working with a side arm of 888. We'll do some videos when we know more 😊
Nancy (2 years ago)
I applaud you for sharing your net numbers. So many reseller just talk about their gross sales which do not say anything about how much they actually make in profit. They could actually be making zero dollars or operating on a loss. It really annoys me when sellers post just their gross sales. I think new sellers can be mislead if they don't understand the difference. So thank you for being different!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
BronsteinEmily no worries 😊 I can promise you, a lot of sellers showing their gross numbers make very very little lol.
Ja Crispy (2 years ago)
Hey Roots, enjoying your vids! I have done a ton of reselling, getting offers i cant resist or stumble upon things, basically coincidental, but now i kinda wanna go snoop up stuff like you guys... i moved to the Philippines a few years ago and things are a bit different here meaning its kinda hard finding good sources to buy from etc since nothing is really listed and many garage sales forth the time happens in sub divisions so people outside rarely hears about it :/ I have plenty of places and groups to sell good quality items, but no sources. Any advice?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Ja Crispy hmmm I'm not sure. That's actually not a market i know very well. I would suggest checking your local classifieds sites or look into local auctions
Elisa Goldman (2 years ago)
wow. that's a lot of money
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Elisa Goldman 😊 took a lot of work
Cheyenne Homesley (2 years ago)
Killing it! Can't believe yall started in 2016! What did yall do before reselling? Did yall jump in head first or slow?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Cheyenne Homesley thank you 😊 full time in January 2016! We're going to do an "about us" vid next and we'll talk more about our backgrounds.
GREEKgod (2 years ago)
great video ryan you inspire me foreal! ive been a long time subscriber i been following since you came on Chris Dunn's channel. so i took your advise , grabbed some items around the house first and listed them up on ebay. sold them almost immediately and make like 130$ well.....fast forward to a week orso later i sent off all the items.....annnnnnd boom my account gets limited.....i just got off the phone with paypal ten minutes ago and apparently im PERMANENTLY banned from using paypal for LIFE! wow. my account was permanently closed. whats weird is that i had an item listed for like 30 dollars still and it sold and is still sitting in my pending balance on my permanently frozen account. kind of a glitch i think? but im still able to list items.and sell. but i have to wait 180 days for paypal to give me the option to withdrawal my funds in a check or into my bank...but im still able to sell?....hmmm weird.. so yeah reselling for me i guess will always be out of reach i was hoping to turn this into a full time thing as .well.....so im just one little subscriber you probably wont care much but i would REALLLY appreciate it if you could do something on selling on amazon? Im going to try my luck there.:) thanks man ! peace!
GREEKgod (2 years ago)
RALLI ROOTS yeah they said i have to get a subpoena in order to find out why exactly.ya it sux idk i havent done anything this was my first paypal account. and yeah i seen that video you posted it was good.. i guess what i was saying maybe if u can talk more about it but now that i think about it i remmber you saying your more of an ebay guy anyways. but ya it wont hurt :) thanks yo. everything about reselling i learned from u pretty much .
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
that is really weird...paypal doesn't just permanently ban accounts for no reason. Something must have happened..I actually just put out a video on the basics of amazon FBA. You can watch that here https://youtu.be/aRNbMRiw-Rk

Micheal Bomberger (2 years ago)
The numbers are not deceiving just because they don't talk about taxes. Do they really need to talk taxes, is there anyone here who does not know you have to pay taxes on their income? A quick Google search will tell you what you'd have to pay in taxes. Looking at their numbers they made a before tax profit of $75,000. Now if they seem to expect the second half of the year to be higher then that, but if they only did that amount again, that's a yearly pretax income of $150,000. Now who hear would turn down a $150,000 a year job? Now yes the taxes are a bit higher since you have to pay the personal and employers half of social security and medicare taxes, but like said a quick google search tells me that with an income of 150,000 I'd have $98,000 after taxes. Disclaimer: I live in Texas where we have no state sales tax so my numbers going to be higher then some peoples will be. Still the question remains, who here would turn down a $150,000 a year job.
Noe Garcia (2 years ago)
Hi Ryan and or Alli - is it a better investment to stock up on fall and winter seasonal clothing while it's still marked down or should I spend that capital on summer stuff? I guess what I'm saying is now a good time or should I stick to this season since I'm a new reseller and the capital coming in is what goes out in reinvesting. Awesome job btw 👏🏻my goal is to make 30k net and 50k total between my day job and reselling.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Noe Garcia nice! In our opinion it's a good time to start putting a bit of money into winter items. At least stock up a bit on them. Cheap right now.
Takuraba Santo (2 years ago)
Thanks for the inspiration! I appreciate your guys' videos a lot. A couple of questions for you if you wouldn't mind answering. How many days a week do you guys go out and source? On average how many listings do you do per week? And do you have an average margin you go for per item, for example $10 profit? I want to set goals to be able to reach up to your guys' numbers. Thanks again!
Takuraba Santo (2 years ago)
RALLI ROOTS thanks for the quick reply! That helps a lot. I've been looking to do wholesale as well, what would you recommend in terms of getting started in that area?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Takuraba Santo Takuraba Santo hey there! Happy to help. We source 3 days or so a week but we also have routine orders we buy in bulk. On eBay we try to get up at least 80-100 new a week & we always aim for $20+ net profit per item on average.

Mr Roots is spot on not giving tax advice. He does not have a CPA license. There are so many things that can be done to defer taxes it is really specific to each person. As long as he is giving the net numbers (after COGS, etc...) who cares about his taxes.
Susan Correia (1 year ago)
I can’t agree more. Never get out certain advice if you aren’t in that profession
just an older guy (2 years ago)
True. But reselling is a hobby for me so I am lucky. I have a great job 2 degrees and about 40 years experience. Started out sweeping warehouse floor. Sent myself to college at night. At 23 I managed a warehouse at 25 I ran purchasing and sales support. At 30 operations manager. At 35 regional sales manager. Now I am old enough smart enough and been around long enough I do what I want.
Rider For Christ (2 years ago)

THANK YOU! Finally a voice of reason lol. It's called "I don't want to get sued" :) Go and talk to a CPA people!

Very impressive. I give you guys alot of credit for being so open w/the details of your business. I'd love to see a video w/your Amazon #s, as well as a more detailed breakdown of your wholesale business.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
for sure! a warehouse tour is in the works ;)
The Art of Becoming (2 years ago)
Also, I'm curious about how you guys found and decided on your warehouse/office space. Another idea for a video!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
thank you. yes, we definitely plan on getting more into the details in the future. This was just to show the total picture.

I've been watching quite a bit of your vids and keep hearing you talk about wholesale sales. Do you sell products to other resellers? if so, what kind of products?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
yes we do. a wide range of products. health, electronics, home goods etc etc. Right now our buyer list is full though. We are are looking for more sellers to work with though. Cheers.

Incredible numbers! I would like all those sales can be done only with an account on ebay!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Thank you :) yeah for sure, there's people doing millions on one account.
Adam murillo (2 years ago)
Thx for the vid! I want to echo some of other comments. Maybe a follow up on how taxes factor into those numbers. Also breakdown of sourcing. How much from thrift/wholesale etc. Thanks for the motivation. Team ROOTS is rocking it!

RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Thank you! yes, we will be doing more videos this is just a view of the whole thing :)

Great video! Love that you guys are so open with us! Is there such a thing on ebay as category limit when you own a ebay store?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
yes we will :)
2crazy98 (2 years ago)
RALLI ROOTS oh ok good to know :) maybe you can make a video for when you go wholesale hunting :)
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
no you still have to pay the fees associated with the extra listings. If you're listing over 250 you'd want to upgrade to a premium store.
2crazy98 (2 years ago)
RALLI ROOTS oh so let's say I have the basic store that has a 250 limit per month this month, then in 30 days I call them to get it lifted without a fee?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
No worries!! The only limit I know of are the monthly $ amounts and the monthly listing amounts which you can get raised every 30 days.

Very motivational! have you factored income taxes in you net figure?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Yes for sure. All our taxes are handled by our CPA. Everything is run through our corporation.

dont (2 years ago)
might be a silly question..but what about tax?none of these vids ever mention tax
Amen Panesar (2 years ago)
Why would they? They're not accountants
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
dont - most videos don't include tax advice because there is massive liability in giving advice without a license to do so. You should consult your CPA for tax help. Cheers
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
please explain how "the numbers are deceiving" because of taxes? like I said, you need a better CPA and you need to incorporate. Do some research before you call me deceptive!
J.r. Satoafaiga (2 years ago)
dont be deceived. He said that this video is to inspire. So be inspired....or be critical. But don't hate the playa...hate the game.
