Digital Scale - Monday Market of the Week

A digital scale provides accurate readings when measuring the weight of objects like ingredients in the kitchen or a parcel for delivery. A digital scale is relatively compact and durable compared to other types of scales. With these advantages over other types of scales, it's no wonder digital scales are popular on eBay... but are they popular enough for you to sell them for a profit? Let's take a look! 

Sell-through Rate: Did you really find a hot niche?

The digital scale had a sell-through rate of 50.02% so yes we have found this week’s niche! Remember that the sell-through rate helps show a product’s potential so go for products with a sell-through rate of at least 50%.

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

The median end price of digital scales is $17.47. As always, keep in mind that the median end price on eBay can be ambiguous because the median end price is for all listings of a certain product which can include bulk listings that sell two or more units of digital scales in a single listing.  The median end price can also be affected by listings that are using similar keywords for closely related products. The presence of others brands and models on eBay can skew our data.

Let's check the Average Price and Average Buy It Now price using our lab’s snapshot feature. According to our lab the average price of a digital scale is $29 while the average Buy It Now price is $35.  

Total Listings, Total Bids and Total Sellers: How viable is your market?

Digital scales have one of the largest markets I have encountered since starting the Monday Market of the Week blog series, with 25,862 listings you might think this market’s another highly saturated one but before you do, take a close look at the total number of bids for the month of April – 99,156! Need I say more?

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

If you’re still doubtful about the potential of this week’s niche, I think the total revenue for April might help convince you that this is a niche worth investing in. Start listing digital scales and get the chance to earn as much as $36,449.96! So what are you waiting?

eBay has very strict poielics on posting. Only post items that you have on hand.Now to your question: contact eBay and they will instruct you on how to download, upload the text information. Contact the wholesaler and let them know you require more pictures. They should be labeled by item number. Post them in your listing.
