Reselling Software: Don’t Start a SaaS — White Label Someone Else’s Instead

chris lollini

Reselling software gives you many of the benefits of a software business, without the upfront development cost.

That means you can enjoy recurring revenue, selling one product to multiple customers, and strong profit margins by white labeling a software tool that already exists.

These benefits are what attract many people to starting a SaaS, or software as a service, but you may not need to go through the trouble.

After all, there may already be a tool that solves the same problem. Could you become a software reseller instead of a software creator?

What’s the fastest way to multiply money? 

It might be reselling.

That is, buy low, sell high, repeat.

Fast forward 15 years–and more than $270,000 in sales–and reselling is now her full-time gig. Today, Keely focuses mostly on vintage goods, clothing, and furniture–all items in great demand right now.

After spending hours of research and using the little money that I had saved, I bought my first pair of shoes to resell. It was a pair of Jordans that I bought for $190. I sold them hours later for $300 — an $80 profit after shipping and fees.

It was the quickest and easiest money I had ever made. I had finally found a product that met all of my criteria: high ticket items with good margins that sold quickly. Sneakers checked those boxes very nicely.
