hello guys!
i'm considering to sell some fresh coffee bean from Indonesia via ebay such as Aceh Gayo, Mandheling, Bali Kintamani, etc.
the price would be around 15$/ 0.5 kg without shipping. roasted or not will be by request.
will it be worth it? or maybe some of you would be interested?
thanks, looking forward for the responses.

if you sell your beans at that pricing $15/1lbs plus shipping, green beans, it will be "death" of your business from the get-go.

currently, they are selling at ebay around $4 per pound. plus shipping. shipping is around $10.00
and there are people offering Indonesia green beans around $4 per pound from USA with low shipping.

I do not know where you are located at, but if you ask me, it ain't gonna work.

wow i never found beans in that price on ebay or online market. could you give me a link?

Sorry, but deathoo is completely right. Maybe your thinking of roasted beans but green beans go for a lot cheaper. Now, if you are going to roast them and sell them fresh(usually use roasted beans within two weeks) then go ahead and give it a try.

Why don't you try selling it on Aliexpress? This platform has no hidden charges, and it will allow you to sell it at a lower price. I became a seller on AliExpress 4 years ago, so I know how things are going here. The commission fee is about 5-8% depending on the category, and that's more than convenient. Besides, the shipping is very cheap, because all parcels are delivered by china post, which is one of the best in this area. Anyways, I think that you'll have greater success here than on eBay. Just give it a try.
