How to Find Profitable Products to Sell on eBay (Part 1)

You would have heard of people making a lot of money with eBay, selling various products. These success stories compel us to read about eBay and understand how it works.

It is an auction website that is said to be one of the largest online websites and receives millions of visitors every day. Selling on eBay gives us the opportunity to sell to people from all over the world, unlike a physical store, where only locals are targeted. Earning a full time income from home is no longer a dream!

Your first question would be what to sell and where do you find products to sell? Start by selling the few odds and ends that are lying around the house. The saying that one man’s junk is another’s gold holds so true. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you sell under quality stuff. Below are some of the ways to find products to sell on ebay:

Your Home
A good place to find products to sell in the initial stages is your home. I am sure you have plenty of baby clothes, car seats, toys, monitors, books, china, cards, comics, electronics and a number of other things. As long as they are in good condition, these can be sold easily. Once you make some cash with these, you can venture into buying stuff for selling on eBay.

Second Hand Shops and Garage Sales
With the money that was made from selling things around the house, you can now start buying from second hand shops and garage sales. Look out for things that are in good condition. If you are lucky, you may find things that sell well. Do not venture into selling things that are too heavy and go for lightweight items that are easy to send. You will be amazed at the number of things you will find and the profit that can be made.

Once you have made enough from the above methods, you can start searching for a good wholesaler, where you can find goods at great wholesale rates.

Finding a good wholesaler is not an easy task. There are so many so-called wholesalers whose prices are not competitive. You will not find much help here if you ask others because nobody wants to share the names of good wholesalers as they don’t want competition. This is the art of survival at it’s best!

First, you will need to look around at what is being sold on ebay and what sells well, and check the pulse of eBay. From my experience, I would say that electronics sell very well and since new ones keep entering the market every day, you will find a lot of buyers. Search for wholesalers in this niche, and settle for one that is the best.

I would suggest you join This is a place where you can find some of the best wholesalers for anything and everything you can think of. They even have a forum where you can meet others and get some ideas on legitimate wholesalers.
