What is the best item to sell on eBay?
You might want to leave your full-time job to sell products online because you heard that a friend of yours was making enough to leave his job. Or you are looking for some extra income to help pay some bills or go on a vacation. Whatever your plans might be, finding the right products to sell is important to your success.
There are all kinds of things on sale on eBay. Someone might have inherited a home with a lot of small items that needed to be sold. Or you might have had a baby but no longer need all the items associated with a young child. Many items in good condition have found a buyer on eBay.
Locating the Products
So where do you find the products? Looking in your home is a good place to start. The eBay Idea House is a great seller’s tool that displays all the items in a virtual house. Many new ideals are found in each room including some expected locations and some unexpected locations.
Yard sales are also very good places to start when looking for items to sell. Finding nice items that the owners no longer have a need for anymore, is what you are looking for. Churches, community sales, and larger antique shows are great spots. Make sure to have cash and some decent sized transportation.
That One Item
Make a judgment first on an item whether you would purchase it or not. If you wouldn’t buy the item, bidders on eBay more than likely will not also. Profit margin is in the number one quality you need in a product for eBay sales. If you can sell an item for more than you pay for it, you are in business.
A good example is a game console with limited supply. If you can find one for sale and others are having a difficult time locating one, you can resale on eBay for a profit fairly easily. Supply and demand is an important factor in the possible profit margin.
