Recently this idea come into my mind, that open a store online,just like on Ebay. But I do not know what to sell. Do you have some ideas for me, about the best seller products. How about cosmetic things. Do people prefer to buy them online or in the local store?

I do not think it is a good idea to sell cosmetic things because most of people buy these in the local store. I think you should sell somthing special, such as Chinese old coins if you can get it.

it's a good idea,i also want to open a store to sell clothes or cosmetict things online,becaus i want to earn some extra income.as to my friends'ideas,they think selling the cosmetic things is better than clothes,like them,they dont like to buy clothes online,there are two reason,the first is that the quality of the clothes is always worse than we see online.the second is that sometimes the size is not exact,when they bought,it always not suit them,the size of the clothes is either too big or too small.but they very like to buy the cosmatic things online,they are cheaper than market price.

You shoul be cautious to open an online store.At first ,have a detailed plan.Some people in China can not imagine buying a product without seeing it.Also the delivery and payment would be an obstacle to some people.I sometimes worry about the quality of the item.So just carefully think about it.

Greetings Mjanne, I am an online seller. What to sell, that should be things you know about or like. As for cosmetics, there are those who prefer to shop online. I think the discontinued cosmetics would do well. I also stared a discussion about where to sell and how to find products. I also talked about a site where you can choose from over 6 million products, but that site is a ref. link and free to join. so after reading the discussion, if you want more info or have any questions, you will have to PM me. Here is the link to the discussion I started about selling online. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1992241.aspx

Hmmm...could you elaborate a little more? Like for the cosmetics, if you were planning to sell some, do you have your own cosmetics to sell? Or are you planning on creating your own cosmetics? Are you selling other already-made cosmetics? And are you somewhat knowledgeable about cosmetics or was that just a wild card you through out there? Just wondering, anyways here's a few tips. 1. Research: the first research you must do is to research yourself, what are you into? What are you passionate about? Of course, you don't have to be interested in the product you are selling to sell it, but it helps. The second research you must do is in the internet, if you are up for the challenge then you might try something that is already saturated in the market, like cosmetics as you said for example. Or you could try to look into a niche that is less saturated and may try your luck there, an example would be herbs and herbal remedies, not a popular niche but one guy makes a living off of teaching people and selling his products to people, with just a website. *This guy sold board games about herbs! I forgot his name, but I'm getting a little off topic here anyways. 2. As for the cosmetics, your cosmetics may be very effective to sell online in countries where not many cosmetic stores are offered to them around their city, but don't limit yourself to these countries, open your doors wide for the world to buy them, I usually buy clothes from stores, but once in a while I'll buy something online. 3. If you are worried about if people will go buy from the store instead of online, then try getting something where people can't get it from stores so they'll have to buy it online. That's usually the reason why I buy clothes online, because I can't get them in the stores or because they aren't in my city, and I don't want to go all the way to the store outside my city just to get a shirt or jean. If you got anymore questions ask, I'm glad to help!
