I need some guidance on Ebay .. I'm looking for a good place to do my sales .. I want to sell on ebay, I know Ebay percent in rather high.
Here I present an example

I want to sell the product cost is $ 65.00 (Price reseller)
Customer sales price would be $ 75.00
Shipping is $ 5.95
Ebay The 13% percent serious

$ 75.00 Customer sales
x 13% ebay($ 9.75)
$ 65.25 - $ 65.00 = Profit is $ .25 cents

My question is .. How many I can not sell the product to make a profit. Because there are many sellers on ebay that sells its products very cheap and I do not know how to make money or make a profit.

I hope you understand me ..

Hi Mayra,

Unfortunately it's just a fact of online business that you're simply not going to be able to compete on a site like eBay on certain products and against certain sellers, especially if you are using a dropshipping method and you are trying to compete with a seller buying in wholesale volume. Not sure if you've read these posts below, but if not, go through them and they may help you better understand your problem and give you some ideas.
