Take a look at the thing directly to your left. Does it look sellable? This is a question that Marcus Pereira has asked himself several times and has been successful in answering. Marcus Pereira is a 17-year-old entrepreneur who has made over 6 figures through his dropshipping business on eBay.
Marcus Pereira hails from Melbourne Australia and was just 15 when he began selling household items using his parents’ computer. However, this was much before anyone even knew about the pandemic that would hit us. Read on to know about how Marcus Pereira took his business to the next level in a time when the entire world was in an economic crisis.
At a time when the entire world was panicking about the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, Marcus Pereira was one of the few who went above and beyond his capabilities and was able to instead benefit from the situation. At first, Marcus Pereira was similarly worried that his business would flop, however it took an unexpected turn when he found himself making more than 3 times what he would earn pre-pandemic. Marcus Pereira quotes making around $20000 in “a good month” however that number grew to more than $60000 in the blink of an eye. As his popularity and credibility in the marketplace grew Marcus Pereira found himself making more than $100,000 in a month. “People were buying stuff because they were indoors,’ he said. “They wanted desks because they were working at home, fitness equipment became really popular, and sales for games increased because kids were also stuck inside.”
Marcus Pereira’s stint at making money online didn’t start at the age of 15. He had started earning and saving money since 12 years of age when he ran a YouTube channel where he would upload gameplays of various video games. “I had about 7000 subscribers and would earn around $300 per month”, he adds. Although this number is quite impressive especially when you consider that many of Marcus Pereira’s peers had not even formed a proper concept of earning and income; Marcus Pereira was not one to stop there. He would spend several hours researching career paths and different means of earning online. Dropshipping in particular seemed like a profitable yet enjoyable option.

Coupled with his fierce business model based on marking up and reselling, Marcus Pereira has cut out quite a strong foothold for himself in the entrepreneurial scenario.
