I was very excited when I learned VHS could be sold profitably via Fulfillment by
First, the price drop in VHS of the last year has been noticeable. I go to reprice tapes I bought a year ago that were selling at $20 and up, and most are now in the sub-$5 range. The number of VHS tapes I scan that are worth picking up has plummeted. I used to leave every source with a half-dozen or more, and that has dropped off significantly.
This is a “tragedy of the commons” we are likely to see affect other categories soon: Too many people “catching on”, selling their items through Fulfillment by
There are still a lot of profitable VHS tapes out there (I give a list in Amazon Altitude), and films that never made it to DVD will always have value on VHS.
