Ask me ANYTHING about eBay!

I'm looking to make $300-600/mo profit (after everything) selling electronic accessories (usb cables, styluses, etc)

My main advantage is that you'll be paying slightly more to have it shipped locally, versus waiting 3-4 weeks for the item to arrive from China

Is this viable? Should I bother?

I've done some Terapeak research and the margins are 20-30% (after most fee's) but I'm not sure if the volume is there to make the profit I'm looking for
 
Hi Infini,
I have a question:

I have been trying to sell some electronic products that I have (all new, branded, and genuine!) on ebay. But, I have only little success.
I have the best price on all EU ebay for all these products, and yet I don't seem to get it going. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I only have had 6 sales till now, out of which I got 3 feedbacks, all positive (the other three didn't even bother to give any feedback)
So, I don't know, should I just be patient till the feedback comes, and will I sell more then? Or, is there something I can do right now to boost up my sales?
I'd like to sell a lot more, because I have lots of stock coming up. So, it needs to move on!
Any tips?
Thanks! :)
 
Hi Bro,

business credit and whole amount of good funds to start really legit business.

I even have 411 listing , company address and business line.

I have a question regarding find sources, does anyone use sights like salehoo ect for finding a source?

I have an ebay store and am trying to find some suppliers of proactiv, rogaine, wen hair, and moroccan oil? If anyone knows how to get a supplier or help me out would be greatly appreciated.

cheers
 
I am thinking about writing an eBook about selling cell phones on eBay. Thoughts? How much would you pay for this eBook?
 
hey there!

i have a business paypal account in the uk. this one is unverified, and it seems i would need a business bank account with the exact same name as the business shown on my paypal... is this the only way for me to get verified? can i use a personal account or a cc/vba or something?

thanks in advance :)
 
You're lucky to get feedback on a third of your sales so that's normal. I have 5-10 sales per day with my eBay business and I get about 1 feedback per day, so most people don't even bother with it unfortunately.

The only one of those you'd have a chance of getting would be rogaine through shelf pulls in liquidated lots from places like Walmart and such. If you want that hookup, pm me. The other products are with companies who are very protective of their products being sold through diversion. Trust me, I tried lol. :). Good luck.
 
I'm totally new to eBay,so I need to know a few things about receiving payments.
I need to know whether Indian user can receive payment through Paypal or not?Because when I check "how to sell" it says "to list items on eBay.in you must have a PaisaPay account", which I don't have.So does that mean I can't sell anything on whole of eBay or just that I won't be able to sell it to Indian buyers".Also, I created this account back in September 2011 and never used it and to sell items it is required to have a seller account but I can't remember what type of account I made.Can't one eBay account do both buying and selling?
Thank you.

Hello, you will most likely need a new paypal account since ebay owns paypal and they have a database of ebay accounts associated with paypal account Id's. A buddy of mine recently had this problem and he worked it out by just creating a new paypal account after his other ebay account was banned. Hope this helps.
 
Great thread! Thanks! Im looking forward to your site your starting.
 
has anyone ordered a pallet?
Im just wondering what the delivery is like...when they pull up to your house what happens? do I need a team of people with me to get the product inside? or is it relatively simple?
 
Hi InfinityAI,

How can I spot private listings with 0 bids.

After the first bid it's easy for me to spot but before any bid had been placed how can I identify private listings?

Will I need a script to do that? Or is there an easier way?

Thanks
 
anyone know any good custom software that can manage large quantity of inventory, fast posts, multiple listers on same account, etc etc. Thx
