    Check eBay trends. It will show you what makes the most profit, but then there's a lot of competition. Good thing most people on eBay have no idea about SEO or an algo. Learn it and rank your items.

    My advice would be to stay away from the best selling items, Unless you're choosing a very specialist market.

    Reason I say that is anything that sells popular will be picked up by large brands, and you simply wont compete with large brands as they can buy bulk which means they can sell cheap.

    Sure you will get sales but not enough to make a living from. So pick wisely and research your competition first.

    I just plain and simple don't like ebay. Their final value fees are way too high, then after Paypal takes a cut, it's not even worth it anymore.

    Just be sure not to start selling VERO items, you will have more trouble than you can imagine, talking from my own experience.. As i didint knew about VERO at all, supplier told me that this going to be okey and we will work it out.. yeah sure.. bye eBay also high fees..

    It is not that eBay's fees are to high, the problem is you are selling items with to small profit margin. eBay / PayPal fees are only 10%. If you sell items that make over 100% profit 10% is not a problem. There re tons of items which make over 100% profit. Check out Waterhouse Research.

    If you have something to ship try selling on craigslist instead. The fees on ebay just kill your profit margins.

    First step is to know the eBay market and what is selling and what is not. Reality is noone in their right mind is going to tell you
    what their niche is or what is working for them in fear of competition. So do your own market research. Plenty of tools to do this
