Anyone sell on amazon as business or passive income?

I’m wondering if there are any Canadians doing this on Amazon.com?

Basically the model is getting cheap products in bulk from China and selling them on amazon. Apparently it’s the best thing since sliced bread.

it's unlikely you're going to make any money with cheap Chinese products, that market is very very saturated

Very saturated.
Unless you can find some sort of obscure niche market to exploit.

Bread has already been sliced, just like this idea.

yup. you need to add value. I tried to sell in the past the shipping/amazon fees eat any profits away. plus the china factories seem to find it easier to hire some translators and now they're all selling their products direct.
