    Ukay-ukay business

    Profitable ba talaga ang UKAY-UKAY business?

    I'm Paul, I had been into ukay-ukay business for 10 years already. I just want to share my experience regarding ukay-ukay business.

    May friend ako na nakabili ng bahay at car sa ukay business lang. Itinuro nya sa akin lahat ng nalalaman nya about ukay kaya I just want to share it too.

    First, if you want to start an ukay business, for a 20 sq. meters size of store, you must have a capital of at least P40K for goods only. P8K for hangers, hanger racks, chair, orbit fan, etc., and P20K for at least 2 months deposit of your chosen commercial space (let's assume that your rent is P10K/month).

    Second, you should understand na ang mabenta lang na ukay-ukay items are from: US, Canada, Europe & Japan.

    Third, choose at least 6 items among the following items below; (45KGS BALE)

    Ladies T-Shirts #1 (approx. 360 - 400pcs per bale)
    Children's Shirts #1 (approx. 420 - 480pcs)
    Original Shorts #1 (approx. 190 - 230pcs)
    Bags #1 (approx. 100 - 140pcs)
    Children Rummage #1 (approx. 380 - 450pcs)
    Men's T Shirts #1 (approx. 190 - 230pcs)
    Baby Rummage #1 (approx. 500 - 650pcs)
    Bedsheets #1 (95 - 120pcs)
    Shoes #1 (120 - 150 pairs)
    Capri #1 (170 - 190 pcs)
    Capri Shorts #1 (180 - 200pcs)
    Dresses #1 ( 200 - 250pcs)
    Winbreaker Jackets #1 (120 - 130pcs)

    #1 or no. 1 (number 1) means Class A. Kapag sinabing class A hindi ibig sabihin class A na fakes or imitations. Highest grade yan ng ukay-ukay, it means slightly used IMPORTED AND ORIGINAL na surplus clothing. Kapag number 2 means class B, usually ito ang mga used.

    Fourth, find a supplier who's willing to teach you some techniques in selling ukay, dahil mostly sa kanila nagstart as retailer. Find suppliers of US, Canada, Europe and Japan items only. These items are the most sellable items in the Philippines. Why? Dahil kilala natin ang mga brands from these countries, at mahilig ang mga ukay patronizers sa mga brands na ito.

    Fifth, dapat may target gross sales ka everyday.

    For example: Nakakabenta ka ng average of P3K per day, magkano ang net profit mo? Minimum of P1.5K per day. Why? Refer to the list of items above. price per bale times quantity per bale. Yan ang capital for each item.

    Sixth. Make a list of contact numbers of your customers, everytime na may bibili sa store mo kunin mo ang mobile numbers nila para everytime na may new arrival ka itext mo sila. Dahil tinext mo sila, mahihiya or matutuwa sila na inuuna mo sila kapag may new arrival ka kaya talagang bibili sila agad dahil iniisip nila na nauna sila. Forevery New Arrival day, mahina ang P10K na benta sa 1 araw lang. Ang ibang stores nakakabenta ng P15K to P30K sa first 3 days ng New arrival nila.

    Seventh. Kapag nag-open ka ng bale, wag mo agad ilalaba lahat ng items, divide it into 3 parts at yan unti-unti mong ilabas as new arrival once a week. Dapat CONSISTENT ka, kapag sinabi mong New Arrival every Wednesday and Saturday dapat may ilalabas ka sa days na yan.

    Eight. These brands of ukay bales ang mga kinukuha ko.

    Premium (the original premium)
    Supremo
    Friends
    Samiyatex
    Delmar
    American Mill
    ABS
    Atlantic
    CanAm
    Bell
    AFC
    etc.

    Naparaming brands, basta from US, Canada, Europe and Japan lang na bales ang pinakamabentang items.

    Take note, marami nang yumaman sa ukay-ukay business, kailangan lang ang sipag at tyaga. I can't refer anyone to any supplier. Marami namang suppliers, mag-ingat lang sa mga scammers.
    I hope nakatulong ako.
