Those that sell on ebay and other auction sites, what are your best sellers?

My best sellers are things I BUY on Ebay and re-sell on Facebook.
Selling items on Ebay is a crap shoot. High Fees, Buyer Scams, and the Post office just
raised their rates and Ebay reduced their shipping discounts, so shipping went up 25% this week.

Ebay is a very tough market to make any money on, unless you have extremely good luck sourching products. Those that find a product will not share their source info with you or anybody else.
good luck

There are many trustworthy sellers and buyers on e-bay. One of the best items I have found as both a seller and a buyer is designer clothing in very good condition - meaning clean, slightly worn with no tears, no flaws in the material, no missing buttons, etc. Sourcing designer clothing is fairly easy at estate sales, high end garage sales, and a few consignment shops. If you add accessories - such as designer purses, shoes, scarves ... you could be on your way to a nice part-time "boutique" income.

Do you have a particular niche ? For example - you could cater to those who are looking for designer evening wear or executive women who prefer dark colors - black or dark blue - for their important board room meetings; or ladies who are looking for designer clothing in larger plus sizes. (Yes - each of these niches and many other have both buyers and sellers on e-bay).

Packing your product is also a key for your buyers to remember you. For example - I use only pink and white tissue paper for wrapping, and I also add my business card, and include a small gift bag to include a $5.00 gift card for future purchases and a handwritten thank you note.

It's the little things that count that set can set you apart from other sellers Good luck !

To Your Success,

These are GREAT ideas! I have been an Ebay seller since 1997, off and on. I am in the process of ramping up my Ebay biz as a part of my diversified home-based business ventures along with some other things that I do freelance and as a contractor.
In the past I have sold a variety of stuff from my own closet but I am planning to hit thrift shops, yard sales, and eventually a few auctions once my "capital" builds up a bit.
Seasoned sellers say to "find a niche" and watch always for current trends on Ebay and Amazon.
There are plenty of people making a good living on Ebay and they are willing to share their advice on the Ebay community forum. I have just started looking at this myself and am hoping to make a good income from this as I am now a full time caregiver and cannot work out of the home right now.
Anyway, good luck to you!
