    I want to open a online store in my country, and I want to know what sells the most.

    I was thinking about jewelries. Anything else?

    Damn, I'm late....

    Anyway, you shouldn't open a store if you don't even know what you want to sell. DO you have any experience in the field?

    Why I shouldn't open? I'm currently researching the niche.

    I have experience in selling offline.

    To be honest, different countries sell different types of things...

    For example, the US might sell more of Coke than the UK but the UK might sell more Office Plants than the US.

    I would say easily cheaper cell phones, but that's just me. I see them getting sold left and right.

    Do your research on how much competition there is in your target niche. How big the market is is not as important as how big the barrier of entry is and how competitive it is.

    How about cell phone cases and accessories?

    Everyone has a cell phone and the cost to run this type of this business is relatively cheap.

    Regardless of what sells the most - also consider;


    • What has the most profit margin in each sale?
    • How many competitors are there for that niche?
    • Will you compete on price and try to undercut your competitors?
    • How much start up capital do you have available?
    • Is the product supplier you're thinking of using reliable?

    You may do well to try one of the few eBay research tools/services that are out there. Do your homework first and remember, you make money when you BUY your stock.
