You found the supplier, and you've comp'd the prices on amazon, so it should... in theory.
Are you competing against your supplier on amazon?
Can you move a 40' container of wine glasses?(guess you'd only have to move 1/4 to get your money back)
You are too small to insure your freight shipments, so you know some of the glassware will break.
You do not have an existing ups, usps, or fedex discount, so shipping will be a major cost burden.
You have to extra pack the glassware because, unlike Chinese boats, the burden of delivery in the united states is on you if the glassware arrives broken.
With those risk factors, you need to make sure your profit margin is around the 90-150% range because products will break, cost too much shipping wise to fully charge customers, and packaging will cost more than expected.
I mean, other people seem to be doing it.
So that is a $4 difference per unit from alibaba to amazon.
