Hello everyone! I'm a new member and would like to do business online. Does anyone know about the most searched products in eBay,like top 10, so I can focus and take further research on those products.

I don't really have a background in business which is why i need help regarding this. To describe a few things about me: I am working in a medical field, I am also a sports enthusiast (tennis), I love technologies(electronics), and most of all I love fashion. Hope this helps.

Cheers!
Aron

Hi Aron,

There are two ways to find out what is selling well on eBay:

1) Check out the popular searches and most popular products on eBay:

Popular searches: Link hidden: Login to view
Best selling products: Link hidden: Login to view
eBay pulse: Link hidden: Login to view

2) Perform completed listings searches for products or brand names to see the conversion rate and average selling price.

To do a completed listings search, simply click the Advanced Search button next to the main eBay search box. Enter your search keywords as usual, and then check the Completed Listings box. Hit search and you'll see historical data for the previous 30 days. Successful items are in green; unsuccessful items are in red.

Hope that helps :)

Just a word on the side aron, the hottest selling items on eBay is also the hardest market to crack because it's the most competitive. Everyone wants to sell the most popular selling products, and that end of town is usually pretty cramped because of it.

I think the list does get updated but eBay shoppers are out for the same products at most times that is why the list may seem the same and would lead one to think that it never gets updated.

Yep, the same items pretty much keep showing up in Pulse, but that's because they are always the most searched for lol

When it come to eBay there are pretty much two ways you can approach it.

1. Hot selling items, of course the market is always firing because there is plenty of buyers for the products.

The negative aspects of these products is the competitiveness between sellers that forces very low margins. It's an increasingly difficult market to drop effectively into as more and more suppliers are moving to wholesale business models to ensure the cheapest possible supply prices.

2. Niche products. A niche product is one that there is buyers for, but is being under supplied.

Of course the fact that the market is under supplied means that sales of these types of products can still be very strong. However the negative aspect of targeting a niche market is the research side.

No top 10 list of hottest selling products is going to have niche items on it, so you are starting with pretty much a blank page. You have to somehow identify a niche market, then identify a supplier to cater to that market.

If you're cashed up, can afford to buy in bulk and rely on volume sales to make your money, then getting into the hottest selling items would be the way to go in my opinion.

That said, if you don't have those sorts of resources open to you, then I would be suggesting either settling in for doing some serious researching into a niche market, or just jumping in somewhere in the middle.

Every day products, second hand items, consumables, that type of thing. They won't be the hottest selling items, nor perhaps turn out to be niche products, but they still sell everyday to everyday kind of buyers.

I think that is a very wise move, Aron :)

Oftentimes people/sellers find it easier to progress when pursuing things that interest them. For one your passion will fuel you all the way and you familiarity with the products make it much easier to market them too!

All the best! Do keep us posted with your progress...

I know I must seem like a cuckoo clock popping into threads like this but whenever I see questions about what's going on eBay, the answer to 99/100 of those questions is "TeraPeak." Hands-down the best investment one can make in getting serious about eBay.

I know, the thread is about the top 10 searched products on eBay, but I figured you guys might be interested to learn that Amazon.com will now give its seller's a list of the most sought after products with low supply which I think will be quite helpful in targeting product categories especially for new sellers who are still at the phase of deciding what products to sell :)

Hello richelle,

I will be highly appreciated if you give me some suggestion for the layout of product range. We have a lot of buyers whom are selling items by E-bay. As their dropshipper, I think it's really important for us to find the right product posting on our website. Up to now we have more than 3,000 items for sell from our website (Link hidden: Login to view), but always E-bay resellers asking for us trying find some others new products for them.. I hope there is a way to find the right products for them.

thanks richelle..

Hi Eric,

You might find the ways suggested above useful in finding out what is selling on eBay right now. This will give you a rough idea.

Ideally its good to have stock of the latest trends as people will certainly try to sell those.

Hope this helps:)

Hi Asalazar,

I would suggest starting a new thread altogether, so that your product/supplier requests can be given attention right away.

Also, you can try searching through our forum by using the 'Search in the forum' option. There have been many similar requests in the past.

Hope this helps :)
