MAC Foundation - Monday Market of the Week

In today’s world, makeup has become an integral part of life for many women across the globe. From your stay-at-home-moms to the working, makeup has becoming a necessity. With the help of the SaleHoo Research Lab, we found  a makeup brand that is guaranteed to sell!

Let’s check just how good a niche MAC foundation is.

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

Based on the data shown by our Research Lab, MAC foundation has a sell-through rate of 70.25% which is very good indicator that we have found a promising niche.

Always try to pursue products that have a sell-through rate of at least 50%, the higher the better!

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

For the month of February the recorded price of MAC foundation is $21.69, it may not seem that much but if you check the rate these are selling, then you certainly see how you can make a profit selling Mac foundation on eBay.

Remember that the median end price on eBay can be ambiguous because the median end price is for all listings for MAC foundation which can include bulk listings that sell two or more MAC foundation in a single listing which can skew data. Check eBay completed listings and compare them to your supplier's prices before you go making a bulk order. 

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

There are only 1,936 listing being sold by 1,200 sellers on eBay, yet if you check closely there are at least 6,687 bids for MAC foundation which is more than 3 times the total number of live listings.

This just goes to show that your market demand is more than sufficient and certainly makes your market more promising.

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

Notice how the total revenue for the month of February is relatively constant between $2,000 to a little over $3,000? The market seems to display a stable sales rate, with the highest total revenue pegged at $3,203.74 and the lowest one at $2,066.52.

Going beyond eBay: How popular is MAC foundation online?

One of the quickest ways to check for viable traffic is by doing a simple keyword search. I usually use our very own free SEO software, Traffic Travis. Download your own copy by visiting today.

What do these numbers mean?

There are currently 9,900 searches made globally and around 2,400 searches made in the US alone for MAC foundation. This is the amount of traffic you can potentially direct to your eBay listings and/or online store. Although the numbers are not as high as the search results for MAC cosmetics, you have to take into consideration that the term MAC cosmetics is relatively broad and people searching using that keyword may just be looking for MAC foundation as well!

I logged in to Brooklyn supplier and as usual the whale price was 2x the buy now price on eBay! That's why I can't make money on eBay.

Hello everyone :) @Cliff and Oleg: Glad you found the blog helpful! @2glassesofwine: eBay has become an extremely competitive marketplace and it is not uncommon to find products selling at prices the same as or lower than wholesalers. Many wholesalers now sell on eBay directly to the public! Unfair yes, but its the reality. What can you do about it? * Order in bulk quantities to drive the wholesale price down * Sell on another auction site other than eBay – there are heaps to choose from and profit margins are usually better. Craigslist is also a good place to sell if you live in the USA. (Let us know if you need more suggestions for places to sell online) * Buy liquidation – this lets you get product for pennies on the dollar. (I’ll let you in on a secret, this is how lots of powersellers make money on eBay these days) These days, you have to be pretty savvy to survive on eBay, so I hope we’ve given you some ideas. Cheers!
