If You Sell It, They Will Come!

Aug 11, 2008
Auction sites have been around for several years, but still the top site has been and probably always will be eBay. This is for good reason! Not only can you buy and sell on ebay, but you can also find anything you want on there, for more than a 1/4 less than you will find anywhere else. It doesn't matter what the product is it could be a vitamin. It could be a DVD player. It can be a car. You will find it cheaper on eBay than any other site. Just yesterday I was on eBay I was looking up brand-new laptops. And I found several ones on there where the box hadn't even been opened and it cost like $200. You really cant beat that period.

A lot of people will appreciate the prices they find on eBay, but they don't understand why they are so low. Well here's a little secret, the people that are selling expensive products for low prices are usually wholesalers. What they do is they buy the product as a bulk item from a drop shipper for X amount of dollars (which is usually cheap) in then the seller takes the product and sells it on eBay and he can sell it cheap because he still making a profit. But he doesn't need to charge the same amount that say, BestBuy or Sears charges. He doesnt necassarily care about prices. He cares about selling the bulk lot he bought, as well as making a profit.

This is a great thing for YOU the buyer, because you can buy a brand new Toshiba laptop that just came out a month ago, that sells in BestBuy for $1500 and get it on ebay for $500. A lot of these products also come from places other than the USA, they come directly from the country the product is made. Of course your going to have to pay a lot for shipping and handling if its coming from some place like Japan for instance, but $500 for the product plus $100 for shipping and handling, doesnt even compare to the price you would have to pay in a brand name department store, chain store, or anywhere else for that matter.

Ebay offers all sorts of product categories, heres a few just to keep you interested and then when your done reading this you can check out the link below and see what else they offer.

Art
Cameras and photo
Cell phones and PDAs
Computers
Entertainment
Jewelery
Real estate
Tickets
Travel
Video Games
and more!

I only use this slogan once in a blue moon, but with this it really is true so I feel the need to say it. If you cant find it on ebay, then you dont need it. Simple as that. It doesnt matter if its old or new, big or small, cheap or expensive in the real world, you can find it on ebay if your looking for the right words to use. Most things are organized nicely and are in the right categories, but if you cant find what your looking for you can try one of two things. Use google and look for the product and end it with "ebay" with out quote marks, or use ebays search engine system thats directly on the site.
