Moreover, a few people has turned their small little store space in eBay and turned it into a million dollar investment, with some hitting it big on eBay and earning a respectable income out of it. The question is how do they do it, and also can you do the same?

Basically, what fuels the success of these people are not that they start of better than others, its simple the fact that they know what to sell and when to sell it. Let look into the mechanics of online auctions; you offer an item, people bid for it and the highest bidder wins. What is the first step again, you first offer an item. The fundamental step to success on eBay is knowing what you want to sell. It is not necessary for you to start off with extremely fashionable clothing or accessories for sale; you can actually start off with small items like stuff from your local flea market.

1) Research

Anything you want to do in a new business has to be first researched on before you start on it. Before you can know what the hottest deals in town are, you have to find out which items sells best on eBay. Also, through research, you can start to pen down some items that you may want to aim for that are easily attainable for you but is hot in demand and its selling price is higher than what you would get it for. Basically, you just want to know which goods sell well and also can allow you to have a reasonable profit.

Now that you know what you are aiming for, head down to the local flea markets or garages sales if there are any. Find the best deals available that help you earn the highest profit. Alternatively, if you are aiming for something more 'professional' such as providing digital products, you should look for a good wholesaler or manufacturer that can produce and sell to you at a reasonable good price.

That's really all there is to knowing about what to sell on eBay; however there is another important key to take note after choosing a saleable product. That would have to be buyer feedback. Being the seller of an item, customers may not fully trust your words when you claim that your product is better than others or how excellent your product is. It often takes the testimonial of another fellow customer to bring them over to your side. Other than that, open communication, fast delivery and good ethical business practices are the only way to obtain good feedback and ultimately a good customer base that will keep coming back for more. What are you waiting for? Start researching and finding the items you want to sell today, and you are sure to have a reasonable return of profits in the days to come.
