From my modest experience of reselling stolen goods I realized that stealing a high value item doesn't necessarily mean that you can resell it quickly and at a high price. Reselling items with high demand like Bose headphones or airpods is way much easier than reselling razors. To me electronic door locks and bathroom faucet seem too specific and with a very low demand. I understand the argument that they are not watched as tightly as high end electronics but does it worth it? Do you resell it fast and at what percentage of the original price?

Amazn is a great platform for reselling. You can sell goods at full retail value but yeah it’s verrrry finicky. You can hire services to get approved in the different categories but at any time Amazn/brand owners can come a knockin for invoices and require proof that you’re allowed to sell that particular brand. If you don’t have the required invoices then they either block your listing forever or just shut down your account. You have to constantly be on the look out for new products with good margins to make it worth your while. If you do it right, you can easily make 6 figures with minimal to moderate effort

30% off is still very decent to me, I personally sell on websites dedicated to second hand items and I can't get rid of my goods at more than half of the original price even if I label them as brand new. I'm not familiar with eBay but I might try it now that I read your thread on fencing goods on it and considering that you sell at 70% of the in store price. I just don't understand if you use eBay as an individual like people use it to sell second hands goods or if you present yourself as a private company because both categories exist on eBay. I think the second ones can manage to sell at an higher price but if you can sell at 70% as an individual it is not necessary.
