Like most people will tell you, you probably need to start off with products that are cheap. You can sell cell phone or ipod accessories if you'd like. You can gte lots of these for only a couple hundred bucks. The profit potential is not big, but it is still profit and the risk is low. This will also get you familiar with creating listings on eBay, the best way to ship items and lots of other thigns that you will need to do for each transaction. Not only that, it gives you a chance to build your feedback with little risk.
