Coming from strictly a business perspective it is a failed model from the start. You are here doing market reasearch for a plan and you are already at the achilles heal. If you put a plan in place you will form a detectable pattern. At any sort of scale that results in successful business for you there will be more attention from losses of the company. Do you see what I am getting at? The more successful you are the more likely you are to fail. Its a stupid business decision. Your plan will have flaws and the only way you are going to learn what they are is when you get caught.

Damn this is true. But what if you split up your “business” across multiple shops like Mercari, Ebay, Amazon, Facebook, and even to friends.

I’m no expert by any means, but I’ve heard that people got a good following and loyal customers that they could regularly sell to.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but a quality over quantity mindset wouldn’t make you stick out as well. Like selling one high-end camera every now and then, but mixing low-end things to get you a stable income.

I’m not at that point yet but just putting my thoughts out there.

Generally speaking, one shoplifting rule is not to be greedy. Don't act stupid and set up your plan carefully

The goal of business is to generate profit. Why are you starting a business with a model so limited? Your also exposing yourself to high risks with little reward. There are ways to mitigate these risks but why even invest your time with such limitations built into your model?

From a strictly business point of view its just an all around foolish endeavor. Put in some work on something more worthwhile and you can have your own shop one day where you can go in and take anything you want without such risk.

What he's trying to tell you is that the deeper into this "business" you get the more chances you'll be busted and the business will be closed. Common sense says it's better to have a small but functioning business for long term rather than a big one that will land you in jail
