Hi, if you want to open a physical retail shop, you must see whether the location and crowd is suitable for your products. Maybe setting up one will give people a better impression and they can drop by your shop to check out your latest offering. All the best!  :)

Used to import stuff from china and sold on qoo10. Wasn't too bad but shipping and stuff was really troublesome.

curious about who your main customers are?

mostly young men from age 30 - 45.
Most of them buy physical silvers and coins...

a small segment are ladies age 25 - 35... they buy gold every month as saving.
coz they know buying gold from my shop is a lot more cheaper than buying from banks or jewellery shops.....

a few rich businessmen are buying large amount of silver bars from me for speculations
