Start by selling things that you don't want anymore because you never know how much they will bring. You can put a minimum bid on it but it will cost a little to post it, Usually the things that sell are the last things that you would think would sell. You just never really can tell. I do know that because of the economy and the fourth of July vacation that selling is not too good right now on e-bay. I average about four hundred dollars a month and this month I didn't clear one hundred.

Go to eBay pulse and that will tell you the best selling items on the site. The other thing is to narrow it down to a few categories you are interested in selling in and then do a completed search. This will tell you which items are selling and which aren't, how many bids items are getting etc. Usually brand names sell well and anything that is currently in fashion.

there is a list on ebay (it may require some searching) that will tell you what the 10 most popular items that have sold this week are. i think it is changed every week.

Right now I think the easiest thing to profit from selling would be ipod cases, wires, headphones, etc. Small electrical things like that etc. You can buy a box of 500 clear ipod cases for around 400 dollars I think. Then you can turn that around and profit a good 1000 dollars or so, if you know what you are doing. You usually won't find information about what is the best thing to sell on ebay to make money, people don't want to share there secrets, because then they will make less money themselves. It is best to do the research yourself, and come up with your own ideas.
