    I recently got made redundant at work and am looking to try my hand at buying and selling on ebay. I'm currently looking at spending £1,000 but not too sure what to sell. What would you recommend? What would you would do in my position?

    Buy cheap electronics / import them -> Take to ebay is what i'd probably do if i had no P. You can get alright looking ipod style things for like £3. -> sell at £10 for a 233% return.

    Maybe try to brand them if you could. I don't know much about that.



    Jewellery can do quite well on ebay

    It's tough to buy from ebay and then resell. After fees retail arbitrage is not that doable there.

    Go to liquidation.com
    Buy in bulk
    Sell

    Or you can go to other places where they sell things in bulk. dh is a great place.

    Build yourself up and be sure you have no limitations. I can refer you a few places where you can buy cheap electronics that are refurbished. I had the lead from another business. The process is like 20 hours a week.

    Good luck and steer clear from the shady deals.
