Selling things on Ebay

United States
June 16, 2008 2:17am CST
So I sell things on Ebay occasionally. Most of the time its just video games I am done playing and some random stuff I find at garage sales. Does anyone know about things to be sell or where to get an inventory to sell?

Guys, no matter what you're told, there's no quick way to make millions online instantly. As stated before, one way to work on ebay is to find a good dropshipper. However, the truth of the matter is there are probably hundreds of others selling those same products. I would say the best thing to do is continue to try and go yard sale searching or research more till you find the best niche market to try and get into. Good luck!

This is the way I operate. It is really good to spend a lot of time understanding something you know or care about. I care about video games so I focus on selling them. I have started to learn about dinnerware and china to expand my knowledge.

Hi, I am planning to start selling stuff on eBay but I am not sure what to sell. Do you have any good suggestions?

Hi You will need to choose what you want to sell, then find a dropshipper who handles your product. However, a word of warning. Choose a product where you can feasibly add a reasonable markup because by the time Ebay and Paypal take their cuts, it really doesn't leave you with much profit if you were only making a dollar/pound or 2 in the fist place. Do some research and find out what is selling on eBay and then try to find a dropshopper who can help you. Good luck Violetdreams

Hi, Thanks for your advice. I never know that PayPal and eBay will deduct my income. May I know where can I get a good dropshipper? I hope to hear from you soon.

Its pretty easy most of the time. With things like DVD, books, and video games they all have SKU codes on the back. You plug those into Ebay and it will bring up what your selling. All you do is add a little description, add a photo, change some settings, and go. Other things take a little more time, but not by much. Do it a couple of times and it will only get easier.

I also sell on ebay but I usually sell kids clothes, purses,etc. I would like to find a good drop shipper that would allow me to sell a lot more "green" items. I am very much into the green detergents and cleaning supplies and I would like to sell more of them. I did a search for drop shippers and came up with a lot of things but never found anything that I was interested in really.

I'm trying to earn some money from internet since long, however, I could not earn any till now because, maybe,I might not be doing the right way. So every opportunity of earning money online including Ebay, is interesting to me. However,I didn't know,how to sell something on ebay, how I would select the thing to sell,how I price it and put it on ebay and finally how I would deliver it to the purchaser. May you please tell something about it. Thanks.
