STEP ONE: DO YOUR HOMEWORK
So how do you uncover things to sell on Ebay? Before you list your item, it’s a good idea to
browse eBay for similar items. This will give you an idea of whether the item is going to
get a lot of interest and the best price to set for your item. Adding items to eBay’s ‘Watch
List’ is also a great way to track listings over time to see how well they are performing.
You can also view third party sites like watchcount which are great as they provide
an overview of the best-selling items on eBay.
Popular searches on eBay range from electronics to furniture and wedding dresses. Furniture
is heavily searched on eBay, more specifically ‘Chest of Drawers’ and ‘Wardrobes’. The
biggest thing to consider with items like these is shipping. More than likely these items
will exceed parcel dimensions and weights of courier services; so it’s recommended that if
you do sell these items on eBay that you require them to be collected. Or, if possible flat
pack your items, if possible, to ensure they fit the correct weights and dimensions.
Electronics are also very popular on eBay.
Perhaps you’ve just updated your phone to the
latest and greatest version and your old one is sitting in a drawer, or maybe you’ve swapped
your dated games console for the newest model; someone, somewhere will buy your old devices.
