Flipmine discovers over 1 million new products every day, and allows you to search all of its
products in less than 2 seconds. There is no other platform (that we know of) that comes close to
this data volume and speed.
Many users have told us that Flipmine is the most user-friendly online arbitrage platform out there!
You can browse the opportunity feed without doing anything, or you can quickly target product niches
powerful rule system.
At the moment, yes. Our research shows that eBay has the largest arbitrage pool (Flipmine discovers
over 1 million products each day) when compared to any
online retail store. By sourcing from eBay, you’ll find limited-quantity opportunities that you
won’t find anywhere else, so you won’t be competing with other flippers for the sale.
Unfortunately some eBay sellers tie the wrong product information to their listing, and our system
does not have a way of eliminating this. We’ve noticed that the number of mismatches/fake
opportunities greatly increases if your search rules are too ambitious (e.g. looking for $10 books
with $200 profit). See “Finding the Sweet Spot.”
In short, Spotlight Mode allows you to find more opportunities with less work. With it enabled,
Flipmine auto-applies filters that remove mismatches, getting you closer to the "sweet spot." If you
want to see Flipmine's raw data feed (you'll see more opportunities but also more junk), disable
this. For more information, see “What is Spotlight Mode?”.
Flipmine's reported selling price for a given opportunity defaults to the lowest FBA price for that
opportunity's condition. If the lowest FBA price is not available, the buy-box price for the
condition is reported. And, if the buy-box price is not available, the lowest price for that
condition is reported. By clicking "inspect" on a given opportunity, you can view
both the price
type and when it was last updated.
Possibly, but it won't happen anytime soon. The eBay -> FBA market is massive! Each week, we
track the purchase of around 115,000 items on eBay that can be flipped on FBA for a
profit. Only a fraction
of these items are likely being purchased by flippers. There's plenty
of meat on the bone here.
We are all active Amazon sellers! David (the founder) originally built it for himself, and it's
still the only product he uses to source. The market is also too massive for us to dominate by
ourselves (see the question above).
If you're new, we recommend sourcing books or video games. Be sure not to set the sales rank too
low, otherwise you'll have a higher chance of running into gated products. If you do come across a
product that is gated due to a restricted brand, make sure to click the "ban this brand" button.
This way, products belonging to that brand won't show up in future searches.
