However, what should be done to contact companies such as forever 21 and other inexpensive but still chic designers to buy their off season products and sell them online? If you give me info about it I will appreciate it.

    Hi All, Online business is very easy to start, try to make your website on magento or opencart, both are very reliable.
    Opencart website = www.seeandwear.com.
    @Suman - Do you want to start this business from home or you have team?

    @Bridgit, First try to start in India , you will automatically come to know the loopholes then select other countries. Important point is you can sell at very low prices because of less overheads as you are planning to start from home.
