If you are looking for OA software to do the work for you then have a look at Cleer Platinum,
Profit Sourcery or Profit Spy.

I have not used any of the software myself, so can not give a true verdict, but some people I know swear by them and some swear at them.

You just have to remember to include any fees in your forecasts, and realise that more sellers are selling across more channels at the same or very similar prices therefore reducing the chance of success.

OA is Online Arbitrage. Basically sourcing a low priced product on one shopping channel and then selling it at a higher price on a different channel, often in a different country.

A while back, sellers used to stick with one selling channel and were afraid to ship to a different country. OA was then a great way of making money. With the ease of which sellers can now control stocks across multiple channels in different countries. lower cost international deliveries, and initiatives such as the one by PayPal and WebInterpret, the differences in price from what I can see are diminishing although there are still some bargains to be had.
