    Was trying to think of some things to buy on eBay and resell, but really cant think of anything, besides gold.

    Smart phones? Now the phone companies are cutting back on doing to free phones like they use to.

    Thanks

    i would try lowballing people on craigslist and reselling on ebay, as on craigslist people want cash instead of trying to sell on ebay and waiting up to a week to get their money in their bank account

    The bargain days seem long gone, fees are very toppy now so margins can be thin

    I guess I should just stick with gold then.

    I have set up my own search page that can refresh as fast as I want. I search for new BIN items and snag them as fast as possible, when it is a good deal. Not as easy as it sounds because you have to be quick at your math, see items and guess their weight if they dont list any weight. I then scrap the gold for 90% scrap value. I have been doing $1500-3000 a month. I have to put in a lot of hours just watching the page refresh, checking some items that look promising, till I finally find something I can make 20-40% on. I could buy a lot I could make less than 10%.

    The good thing about gold is if it is fake, you will get your money back. I have never lost a case on something that was suppose to be gold, but was not. Seems like other items I could get stuck.

    I was just wondering if I could expand and buy other items. Something that I could do BIN's and snag them before anyone else.

    I also use a highlighter that highlights key words.

    I have tried other snipe type programs and what I am doing shows new items faster because I am using JQuery and I strip the ebay page of everything but the results, and I change the links to open in a new tab.

    Anyways, if anyone comes up with some items, please post. If someone

    Have you ever searched on ebay for something and didn't get much of a selection? Sell that. Make sure it's ok to sell and profitable and you will make money. You can get a lot of stuff on Alibaba for cheap to sell as well. I am going to make a video presentation soon about how to be successful with the new eBay (a lot has changed recently) pm me if you want to be on the mailing list for that when it is finished.

    Hi friends,

    After reading all still confused how you guys making money on ebay. I had ebay account from years and now used to sell one product but ebay removed my listing because of seller limit restrictions. Its nightmare, called ebay and due to some tech issues they cant increase my limit.

    I am making only £1.50 profit on each item if ebay increase my limit .....I was thinking to make money in quanties..

    Does some one know how to be on top pages on ebay ....eg if people search for ipad covers so how to make my listing to get viewed on first page or on top of pages....I have seen lots of sellers comes on top page even though they are not top sellers..

    Any idea any one ........please let me know ..

    thanks

    I haven't using ebay very much. But I have tried out some selling and the profit isn't good. So I stopped selling and moved on.

    Believe me the profit is great on ebay if you find the right product. And it takes a bit of time and research to find the perfect product.

    Really buying on eBay and reselling does not work that well.
    The key is to find the right supplier and sell on ebay ;)

    Sounds like you've got this down to a T.

    Is this your own script that you use?

    I think you can buy china watches or tablets and sell them :p But all items are good to resell.
