you have to get an importer’s license and set up as a business- lots of papework and inspections

Do your homework. If you look up importing goji berries from China on Google, you get references like this.

You can probably find candle wax for a lot less. It is pretty much the same thing as Goji berries.

There are actually online resources available for people who want to do business. If I were you, I would start here:

One thing about America, there is always someone willing to help you learn business regulations so that you can pay more taxes.
