I love the Anime business. Ebay is just terrible, and I have already looked at another sight called " Shopify " which is free to have your bussiness site on and they take a small percentage of each sale you make.
As far as the exclusive deal with the company in China, that was hard fought, but with all the things happening with foreign trade in general right now, that may be hard to maintain. It`s also tough to do this full time while working a full time job. As far as the business right now, I am in the hole for a lot of cash due to Ebay and some miscalculations as far as overseas shipping goes. And it`s tough doing all this by myself.
Honestly, I would much rather take the business from the web and put it in a brick and mortor. It would take a lot of cash, but the idea here is that this could eventually become a franchise oppertunity. The business would also cater to the Collectible card & Collectible Miniatures industry. Holding tournments, selling the product and being sanctioned with the big organizations like Wizards of the Coast and Upper Deck Entertainment. This would also give me the oppertunity to work with underpriviliged children and get them involved in playing these types of games and keep them out of gangs and the like.
A lofty plan and I would definetly need an angel or two who understand this type of business.
