What is OA?
OA stands for Online Arbitrage, which is the practice of using the internet to search out market deficiencies, and capitalizing on the price difference. Books have been written on the subject, the most common one being Online Arbitrage: Sourcing Secrets for Buying Products Online to Resell for BIG PROFITS by Chris Green. It is a more advanced book, but many of the basic principles there will be introduced in the following videos. A great intro guide to the thoughts and tactics can be found here, written by Ken Szovati.
