How To Find Products To Sell On Ebay!!

Feb 4, 2008
If you have ever sold on eBay before you know what it's like to run out of things to sell. I have been selling on eBay for a little over a year, and I have enjoyed every second of it. I gained my Powerseller status 8 months after I started selling. What does one do when they have sold everything in their home that they didn't want? In this guide, I will give you some great ideas on what to do when you are in this situation and ways you can find more things to sell.

The first thing I want to talk about is going to garage sales. Garage sales can be a great source of finding products if done correctly. The main key to success is dedication. You have to have a strategy or you will never find anything worth while. Knowing what you are looking for is very important especially if you are going to 20 or more garage sales a day. When I go to garage sales I focus on vintage electronics. If you know what you are looking for you can get in, look around, and get out quickly so you can go to the next one. I have made thousands of dollars using this method. The hardest thing is getting up at 6 in the morning on a Saturday.

The second thing I want to talk about is finding products using www.Craigslist.org. Most people don't realize how powerful this site is and they don't give it much of a chance. Craigslist is an online classifieds website that features thousands of cities in the U.S and many countries overseas. When you visit this site find your state, and then city or a city near you. The section you should focus on is the "For Sale" section, especially the Electronics section. The way I search for products is I have craigslist open and have eBay opened in another window. As I go through the electronics section of craigslist if I see something I am interested in I check the price, then check the completed listings on eBay. If there is a great enough profit I contact the seller on craigslist to arrange the sale. This is an awesome way to find products, because craigslist changes everyday which means there are more potential products to find. Please note when you do arrange a sale make sure you do it in a public place to ensure your safety.

The next thing I will talk to you about is creating your own product to sell. Digital delivery products have exploded on eBay and people are making thousands of dollars everyday. The most popular type is selling eBooks. There are thousands of ebooks for sale on eBay from "How to get rich" to "How to cook." The best part about selling ebooks is that once you have created an ebook you can sell it as many times as you like.

The final thing we will talk about is bargain shopping. I have made far more money using this method that any other. The website you should visit is www.slickdeals.net. This website is where people post the deals that they found shopping at stores and online. I suggest you visit this site everyday looking for hot deals. As you go down the list just compare sale prices, and check the completed listings on eBay. If the deal is sweet enough go to the store and buy as many as you can. The best thing about this method is that you usually have between a 30-90 day return policy. This is great because you can't lose. If you can't sell the product you can just bring it back to the store and get your money back.

No matter what you decide to sell just make sure you are having fun doing it. I hope these methods will help you find more things to sell on eBay. Best of luck!
