Sell Fashion Sunglasses Part-Time to Make an Extra Income
These days many people are looking for the best way to put a little extra cash in their pocket. Why not try selling fashion sunglasses
part-time at your local swap-meet, street fair, or sporting event? You may also want to develop a route and distribute to local retail stores like tanning salons, hair salons, boutiques, and specialty retailers. Whichever you choose, we have included many helpful ideas below to help you on your way!
1. Select a Sunglass Wholesaler
There are many suppliers of wholesale sunglasses, but there are a few things to consider when choosing a wholesaler. Does the wholesaler have a large selection, great prices and—most importantly—great quality sunglasses? Do they have a website for easy purchasing? What are their turnaround shipping times and return policies? Miami Wholesale Sunglasses is your wholesale sunglasses solution. We offer over 400 different styles in 15 unique sunglass brands. We are a direct wholesaler so our prices can't be beat and we have a price match guarantee to prove it! Our fashion sunglasses are sold in bulk by the dozen with many styles starting at $24.00 per dozen—which is only $2.00 per piece. We even provide discounts of up to 20% off on larger volume purchases. The majority of orders are shipped within one business day and delivered to most locations within the United States within two to four business days. Best of all, Miami Wholesale Sunglasses is known in the industry as having the highest quality standards in the discount fashion sunglasses market!
Once you have chosen us as your supplier of fashion sunglasses, you will need to purchase inventory. It is good to start off with a smaller order and grow from there. Keep in mind, Miami Wholesale Sunglasses requires NO MINIMUM order, so you can purchase only one dozen if you would like. Also, if you are unsatisfied with any style for any reason, you can return it within 30 days for a refund or exchange. This offers great peace of mind.
2. Obtain Required Documents
Many states, counties, and cities require you to have a business license and/or resale permit so you can collect sales tax while operating your business. A good resource to see if you are required to have these specific documents is the United States Small Business Administration. Visit them here: www.sba.gov
3. Choose a Retail Location
Selecting the best retail location can be a challenging task, but with a little trial and error you can find the best sunglass location for you. There are mainly two ways to sell fashion sunglasses. The first involves setting up a booth—usually 10x10 or 10x20—with a canopy that you can buy at any local superstore. The second way to sell sunglasses is setting up retail display or sunglass rack at a local retailer. Once you have located the best location, you could be making up to $1000 or more a week! Below are a few ideas on where to find the best retail locations.
Setup a Booth:
· Flea Markets & Swap Meets
· Carnivals & Festivals
· City, County & State Fairs
· Street Fairs
· Sporting Events
· Boat Shows
· Mall Kiosks
Setup a Sunglass Rack:
· Tanning Salons
· Hair Salons
· Tattoo Parlors
· Beach Stores
· Gift Shops
· Convenience Stores
· Specialty Retailers
· and many others, options are endless!
4. Select Sunglass Displays
The Best Displays for a Booth
are usually countertop displays. Countertop displays easily showcase 12 to 36 pairs of fashion sunglasses and can be put on any fold up table or counter. Here are a few examples:
The Best Sunglass Racks for a Retailer
are usually floor displays which hold anywhere from 72 to 120 fashion sunglasses at one-time. Most only take up one or two square feet of space and are ideal for any retailer. Here are a few examples:
5. Sell Sunglasses - Make a Profit!
Once you've completed all these steps, you will need to set a retail price for your fashion sunglasses. As we already know, the wholesale cost on most sunglasses is $1.50 to $2.50 per pair. The most common retail price is $10 to $15 per pair. Some locations do really well by selling one pair of fashion sunglasses for $12, and two pairs for $20. This way you can up-sell the customer by providing them a small discount. If you decide to become a wholesale sunglasses distributor
, and sell your sunglasses to a local retailer, remember you will have to split the profit with them. It is usually a 50/50 or a 60/40 split. Whatever price or location you choose, there is a large profit margin in the fashion sunglasses industry of up to 1000%.
