Idea: Pokestop shop
I was thinking of going downtown and setting up the equivalent of a lemonade stand and calling it the Pokestop Shop. I'd set up next to 2-3 pokestops and keep them constantly lured while selling bottled water and snacks. If business is good I'd start selling shirts, stickers, and maybe bring a couple batteries and charge people for charging their phones.
What do you guys think? What are the legal issues I might run into doing this?
You'll probably need licenses if you're an adult doing it
pretend its a good cause and find some kid to help you like a nephew
Sell something mobile in a cart like girls scout cookies and just hold up a sign that says pokestop shop
no one will stop you and you'll bring people in with lures. Get it fast because pokemon fad is slowly dying. Millenials lose interest fast as fuck
Son you're already too late
I've already been doing that for the past 2 weeks, but I drive around to the pokestops in my vehicle, hitting the most popular ones during peak hours
In addition I sell small chip bags, Ash Ketchum hats that I ordered off Alibaba for 2$ a piece and rechargeable portable chargers (18650 battery packs) that I got for 3.50 each and micro USB/lightning cables. All ordered from China
OP I respect your entrepreneurial spirit so I'm not going to trash your dream. I will say, however, that many pokestops are already establishments that sell goods and services to people so your competition is, like, ACTUAL businesses.
If you were in my city I'd buy shit from you though because I dig gumption.
Do enough people actually play this stupid game that this is possible? You make it sound like crowds of people walk around with their phones out.
I guess if you live in the middle of a big ass city then maybe
Please believe that it is not hyperbole when I say this may already be the most-used app in the history of smart phones.
More daily active users than Twitter, more daily usage than Facebook, it took all of 6 days to eclipse Candy Crush as the most played mobile game of all time.
wow damn, I live in a small town in Canada so Idk if its even available here yet. I honestly just think its some new mass surveillance tactic always having to walk around with your phone out pointed at things etc.
So far i have made 1300 USD selling pokemon shit i made for cheap (around 250% ROI), feelsgoodman.
if you really wanna make some money, buy some cheap power banks. something like these, you can pick them up for less than a dollar: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/DIY-Portable-USB-Power-Bank-box-1x-18650-Battery-Charger-Box-18650-power-bank-case-no/32698199296.html?ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_0,searchweb201602_2_10057_10056_10055_10049_10017_405_404_10059_407_10058_10040_9017,searchweb201603_8&btsid=abec0ccf-7edb-4fa9-a416-9a6ead1b4c14
Fully charge them, sell them for $5-10. Pokemon Go drains your battery, and people are always complaining that their batteries died just before they got an elusive rare one. If you're at a popular poke stop, and you're flogging something they can connect to their phone and get a full charge, you'd make a killing.
You got no idea.
I walk around a track usually around 9 pm. Until a few weeks ago it was great, because I had it all to myself, that late. Now there's always 3-4 other people walking around with their phones out. At 9 pm. And I'm not even in a big city.
There's mobs of hundreds playing it in big cities.
Somehow they've popularized an outdoor video game. That's never happened before.
