A COUPLE has revealed how it makes enough money to cover its mortgage payments by selling off products in an Amazon return pallet.
Jamie and Sarah McCauley, from West Michigan, brought two boxes full of electrical equipment that were returned for £750.
They shared their behavior in a recent YouTube videotapesrevealed that they planned to sell the kitchen equipment and use the profits to pay off that month’s mortgage.
Jamie explains: “The reason we pay so much for them is because they are mostly household items and we know we can sell them quickly and make a good profit.
“Our mortgage is about $1000 (£750) a month, so even if we sell these items for 60% of retail value, we will have enough money to pay off our mortgage. I add a little more.”
Inside the pallets, the couple found themselves 4 Nespresso machines, 2 microwaves, 2 deep fryers and 3 air fryers.
Sarah said: “We added all the values and the total came to $4,582 (£3,408).
“I will try to calculate my hours and see if it is really worth my time because my time is valuable, it is not worth anything.”
After testing the products, the couple removes any errors before placing them for sale on Facebook Marketplace or Ebay.
Despite initial difficulties, the pair were eventually able to ship most of the devices after cutting the price down to 40% of retail value.
Responding to their experience, Jamie said: “We like the Facebook marketplace because of our porch pickup, which is really convenient for us because people will come and put money under our pads.
“Ebay is a bit more complicated, but I’ve sold a lot of stuff through it, you have to weigh it, measure it, and take it to a UPS store.
“But when we learned how to do it, we did it very easily and we started doing it very quickly so far our sales are $1,496 (£1,113).”
He continued: “We have enough merchandise to make an extra $500 (£372) if we sell things for around 40% of retail value.”
The couple expected a profit of $966 (£718) left after holding a Nespresso machine, more than enough to pay off their mortgage that month.
Sarah said: “It’s certainly possible, you can make money from this, however, we definitely recommend proceeding with caution as it’s a lot of work.”
For more pallet profit, this a couple paid £18 for a return and take away pallet with £10k worth of merchandise.
