    Default What items on eBay are good to buy and resell?

    Was trying to think of some things to buy on eBay and resell, but really cant think of anything, besides gold.

    Smart phones? Now the phone companies are cutting back on doing to free phones like they use to.

    Thanks

    i would try lowballing people on craigslist and reselling on ebay, as on craigslist people want cash instead of trying to sell on ebay and waiting up to a week to get their money in their bank account

    The bargain days seem long gone, fees are very toppy now so margins can be thin

    I guess I should just stick with gold then.

    I have set up my own search page that can refresh as fast as I want. I search for new BIN items and snag them as fast as possible, when it is a good deal. Not as easy as it sounds because you have to be quick at your math, see items and guess their weight if they dont list any weight. I then scrap the gold for 90% scrap value. I have been doing $1500-3000 a month. I have to put in a lot of hours just watching the page refresh, checking some items that look promising, till I finally find something I can make 20-40% on. I could buy a lot I could make less than 10%.

    The good thing about gold is if it is fake, you will get your money back. I have never lost a case on something that was suppose to be gold, but was not. Seems like other items I could get stuck.

    I was just wondering if I could expand and buy other items. Something that I could do BIN's and snag them before anyone else.

    I also use a highlighter that highlights key words.

    I have tried other snipe type programs and what I am doing shows new items faster because I am using JQuery and I strip the ebay page of everything but the results, and I change the links to open in a new tab.

    Anyways, if anyone comes up with some items, please post. If someone

    Have you ever searched on ebay for something and didn't get much of a selection? Sell that. Make sure it's ok to sell and profitable and you will make money. You can get a lot of stuff on Alibaba for cheap to sell as well. I am going to make a video presentation soon about how to be successful with the new eBay (a lot has changed recently) pm me if you want to be on the mailing list for that when it is finished.

    Hi friends,

    After reading all still confused how you guys making money on ebay. I had ebay account from years and now used to sell one product but ebay removed my listing because of seller limit restrictions. Its nightmare, called ebay and due to some tech issues they cant increase my limit.

    I am making only 1.50 profit on each item if ebay increase my limit .....I was thinking to make money in quanties..

    Does some one know how to be on top pages on ebay ....eg if people search for ipad covers so how to make my listing to get viewed on first page or on top of pages....I have seen lots of sellers comes on top page even though they are not top sellers..

    Any idea any one ........please let me know ..

    thanks

    I haven't using ebay very much. But I have tried out some selling and the profit isn't good. So I stopped selling and moved on.

    Believe me the profit is great on ebay if you find the right product. And it takes a bit of time and research to find the perfect product.

    Really buying on eBay and reselling does not work that well.
    The key is to find the right supplier and sell on ebay

    Sounds like you've got this down to a T.

    Is this your own script that you use?

    Default Re: What items on eBay are good to buy and resell?

    I used to buy big job lots - always buy it now (unless I could find good auctions) and work out the cost per item (including p/p most people forget to add this cost it) then I would work out P/P prices (for me to send it/sell it) and work out if splitting the joblot up would be worth the time/effort or if it would make more sense to resell it at a higher price

    There is no "golden" item to sell on Ebay.. many people want many different things. Just don't go for saturated markets like phone cases, ipad cases etc.. try to find a nice little niche that is a little less untouched

    When searching for items, go for ones you know a bit about..I used to go for phone cases as I knew the tech market so knew what was currently selling well etc and what new products were coming soon, but the biggest problem you will face is saturation from India, China, Japan and Korea and maybe a few other places.

    Also when searching for items also look for how many listings there are for example "331,415 results found for iphone 4 case" but only" 30,670 results found for beanie hat"

    Hope that helps a little

    My suggestions

    - Find something that you can source locally at a cheap price (by buying in bulk)
    - Start listing that product on eBay
    - Ideally, a product that isn't a big brand name so you don't have to deal with eBay's Vero requirements
    - Something with thin margins isn't great, as Paypal fees are huge

    Ebay fees are pretty high but I make a decent profit, I buy on craigslist in the computer section and sell on e-bay. Just a matter of finding someone who doesn't know much about computers and thinks theirs is broken when all it needed is a cleaning or something else simple. I make $75 to $200 profit a computer, not much but hey it's something..lol

    Yes exactly, Remember time you pay eBay Fees and PayPal fees you are looking at paying out allot
    on your gross return profit. So in that case make sure to do market research and find products with
    decent sell value but cheap cost. Easier said than done I know but it can be done

    Buying on ebay and reselling it there has become more difficult. You can still find things sometimes that are listed in the wrong category or have spelling mistakes in the headline. But a lot of people look for those oops listings. Not really effective if you like to buy and sell a lot of things.

    If you are okay with buying stuff from overseas you may want to check other ebay sites, like Philippines or Malaysia. There ebay is still free to use and the sellers have access to all sorts of cheap goods. Make some contacts, spend a bit of your time.
    If you see something listed you think you can resell and also import without custom problems look even more into the same item by searching for it on other local websites. You should be able to shave off another 20-30 % of the listed price on ebay

    Best way is to probably some nice liquidation lots. Preferably ones that don't list on national sites. You can make some solid money with that but it will require some work sorting and listing all of that.

    You need to make sure it is a healthy profit margin involved. Do some research on the products
    you are curious about selling by going to terapeak. It works pretty well for me.

    I would say there are many different paths you can take with this - but it also depends on where you live.
    OP - if you are asking about buying on eBay and reselling on eBay those days are somewhat gone (used to be an awesome market, misspelling, wrong category poor keywords) and with the higher fees the margins continue to erode.

    That being said there are many ways to make money selling on ebay and people have posted some very good and profitable ones on the thread (I have been selling on ebay for more than 10 years). Most are simple, not overly complicated.
    But decide how much you can "invest" into buying and what you are looking to make in net profits (net = after all fees, not just ebay fees, but also shipping to and from, paypal, and any other fees you will incur - including your time).
    If you need to start small do that, and make sure the returns are solid and reinvest the money until it gets to the level you are happy with.

    I think this recent thread has a good 3 points about why people do not make money on ebay:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackha...must-read.html

    If you are in the US and are looking for a good product I have some products (no "brands", no replicas stuff, no clothing or apparel) that sells very well that I cannot sell all of right now so I would be willing to speak to people you are interested in doing something together, feel free to PM me.
