The best advice about selecting products for selling on eBay is to focus on products that you actually know and use. You can sell both used and new products. If you want to sell a new product you will have to conduct extra research. Don’t forget that you cannot sell everything you want on eBay. For example, you can’t sell drugs or animals. There’s a special section on eBay where you can check their policies which will give you a better picture about the stuff you can’t sell there.
New sellers usually have limitations when it comes to a number of sold items per month. So, even if you don’t want to, you will have to start small on eBay. This is a good thing because one month is not a long period of time to analyze your success in this marketplace. In addition, you should find sources from where you will buy the products and resell them in case you are into reselling. It’s obvious that you will also have to think about shipping and storage too. At the end of this step, check the trending and hot items directly on eBay’s main page and consider selling some of these products.
