    Hi
    i am thinking of start selling at ebay. So i would like to have advice of you before start. As far as i know .some people buy lot of same item from whole traders probably in china or hongkong area and sell them in ebay with the auctions . Some people resell items probably taking from other sellers and sell them in auction . So what method do you think a beginner like me to start with ? i will not be able to invest lot of money by the way :( . i really appreciate your help. thank you

    Do your research check the sold listings in different categories on Ebay.

    As said above try researching hot items. Do not start with a dropshipping at the very beginning unless you want to mess with lots of stealth accounts. Start with selling your own, parents, friends stuff. Like this you will build your feedback base and will lift limits. If you are able to get some real old stuff from your grandpas etc. it may be worth selling it on eBay. A friend of mine is in to WW1, WW2 stuff and it sells for $$$ easily on eBay

    If one of your cousins is an artisan or like an artist and makes his own staff for hobby or even if he sells them, you can start from there.

    It will help you to test the waters.
