Selling products on eBay is one of the quickest ways to earn a good, sustainable income online. Many people use eBay to make a side income and many more have online businesses that sell only on eBay. If you’re not already an eBay seller you should start immediately. Below are some tips are on how you can help to make sure that your eBay items sell.
When it comes to buying items on eBay there are many things to keep in mind. Most buyers are wary of buying anything from sellers without high ratings. If you are just starting out, a quick way to get a lot of positive feedback is to buy several small ticket items. After prompt payment you’ll start to accrue positive feedback ratings. It’s also worth filling out the “About Me” page. This is a useful page to introduce yourself to your buyers. Let them know what you’re selling and how you can give them what they want for less than anyone else. People love a bargain.
Feedback and first impressions are important but even more so is the description of the item you’re selling. One of the first items I started successfully selling on eBay were 8gb USB drives. Yes, believe it or not they sell like hotcakes…and the best part is, it’s what they call a “niche market”. Everyone wants to buy iPods wholesale and resell them for thousands of dollars in profit but it’s just not realistic. You’ve got to find products that sell online AND that you can buy cheaply. I bought my first lot of 50 USB drives for 4 bucks each and resold every single one of them on eBay within 30 days for an average of $17 each.
I still sell hundreds of them to this day. But back to the description of your product for sale. Include pictures. Seriously, even with the USB drives, they sell 10 times as fast when I include a picture. Yes, even something as “boring” as a flash drive sells quicker when people can see what they’re buying. You can’t afford to overlook this point. Remember, this doesn’t mean you have to actually take a picture of your product. Find one online and use it. It’s simple and a HUGE benefit. Don’t let the additional fees from pictures put you off. If you’re getting the right products at the right price, the fee will be well worth it.
The final and BY FAR most important consideration when becoming a profitable seller on eBay is finding good products to sell at wholesale prices! You can spend hours searching the internet like I did or you can purchase some “wholesale lists”. A lot of them are worthless but a few good ones more than make up for it because once you found a good wholesale supplier, you’ve found the goose that lays the golden eggs. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite wholesale suppliers and drop shippers and they make up 60% of my online revenue to this day. The best part is, once you take care of this final point of finding good wholesale suppliers you can start setting your system up and making good money today.
