If you are going to be a power seller on eBay there are a few things that you must understand. The most important eBay selling tip I can give you is you must know what the hot selling items on eBay are. So how do you find what is selling on eBay?
There are several ways I use to find out what the hot selling items on eBay are. The first way is the easiest and fastest way. Go to eBay Pulse. eBay Pulse is a tool that eBay provides and is a fast way to find out what items are hot on eBay. eBay Pulse will show you the top ten searches for every category within eBay. Why is this important? Well before you can sell many items on eBay you need to know what items are in demand. When people search on eBay for a product then this is an indication as to how much demand there is for that item.
The more searches the more the demand for the item. Pretty simple. Once you know what products are in high demand then it is a matter of finding a wholesale source for the product or a drop shipper. I prefer to use drop shippers because they take care of handling the inventory and shipping. All I have to do is focus on listing and selling items. Drop shippers also give me the opportunity to test what will sell on eBay and at other online auctions. Since I don’t have to pay for an item until I have sold it, all I have at risk is the listing fee. I can test hundreds of different drop ship items for pennies a listing.
There are also some software packages that help you find the niche items on eBay and those that are in high demand. These software packages run between $19 dollars and $100 dollars. I have a few of them and use them frequently.
If you want to sell on eBay start with finding the hot selling items. Good luck.
