    Sell things that people want but without a lot of competition.

    Like special electronics: car diagnostic equipment, marihuana growlights, ...
    You can dropship it from sites like dhgate.

    Too much competition these days, you have to find a niche product that lots of people want. For example, self balancing scooters back 6 months ago. Now it's very hard to sell them because market's been flooded.

    If you have any artistic skills or talent for electronics etc you could make your own products.

    Get some inspiration from instructables or wikihow for this. Used to do it myself and could easily make a decent amount.

    If you aren't particularly skilled in these areas then you need to offer something your average ebayer isn't such as bundling items together to make a package deal or find something that very few people are selling, otherwise you will end up getting into a price war and making pennies per item.

    I've done this before and found that the key is to find high margin, low competition niche products. If you find if on Amazon, chances are hundreds of other sellers have as well.

    I always sell products that I am interested in or know a lot about this helps a lot (at least for me). I then research them on Terapeak, find stuff I like and then find a great source (Amazon or otherwise). This method has worked for me, might not be for everyone. There are a ton of ways to find high volume selling items, this is just one way.

    Why dont you try looking for some wholesalers? You can start your search on alibaba just to get the lay of the land and get your feet wet. Keep reading and doing research and you will find items and make great profit if you work at it.

    The key is finding a product that you can get cheaper than others or is not being sold.

    You our literally got to find an item, look it up on eBay to see who else is selling it and go from there.

    I had one item I was selling several years ago and did a ton of sales until I got competition from others.

    It was a discontinued item, so I called the distributor, put $50,000 on a credit card and bought every single item in the warehouse.

    Waited till all the lowballers ran out of product and then listed mine and jacked up the price.

    Made a ton of money
