Well...how does woot.com make money?<br>
I mean really there is basically no way they could make money selling all that expensive stuff dirt cheap. How do they do it??<br><br>
They must have SUPER wholesalers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick out tounge caps">

A lot of their stuff is refurbed and/or open box/OEM. Plus they must get it at a deal for buying overstock from someone else.

They probably buy it in bulk and sell it to you guys for cheap. Then they have advertisements because all those people go on that site and check every day so that brings them alot of traffic so they can get alot of money for having other company's logos/banners on their site.

and they only have one item everyday. so it's not like they have to keep TONS of items at a low price, but have to get surplus whenever they can find it for cheap and sell it.

i wonder if you could have a business model like that. sell hardware at a loss and make up for it in ad revenue from the incredible traffic you're sure to get

Or its the fact that retailers make probably 200% profits off of some items, they may make like 130%, for example..
