Start up - Selling on eBay

United States
November 13, 2006 10:13am CST
My son-in-law is looking into selling on eBay. Not personal items or used items, but new items. Anyone with experience and advice please respond. What is the easiest way to get started? What should he look out for and what should he definitely do to make it easier and more profitable? He is currently looking for a good drop shipping company to start up with so he doesn't have much out of pocket expense. Can anyone recommend a drop shipper they have used/ Where do you get most of your product from?

have following suggestions. 1.He should also try other auctions sites and places like bidville.com ( where there is no insertion fees) For a new entrant like him no listing fees type of auctions are better because you know ebay is charging fees. 2.He should do some research on ebay i.e. what are the top searched products or hot selling products.we are power seller on ebay India and our id on ebay India is vikasintlcom and we did the same....research first than list. 3.you can visit our site http://www.vikasintl.com/products.htm and we have the products which we think(after research)that are best sold in markets like USA. 4.We don't drop ship..at least now..but this will give you some hints.
