I've been on salehoo off and on for maybe 5 years now, spend a few months searching for product, then give up for a few months, viscous cycle. Thought I really had something this time.... Til I called to clarify a couple things lol sorry just needed to vent ;) now I know where this gray hair came from. Any one else in the same boat?

Thank you Rachel, I'm fine just felt like venting.... I'm willing to sell anything that I can profit on ebay, but that is easier said than done... Been looking at liquidation pallets again lately. Starting to think that's the only way to go

Hey Jacob,

The funny thing with selling sometimes, we don't realize that we can start from something that's under our noses.

Have you tried to revamp everything and change your niche?

Sell something that you are most interested in. Try looking around your home and start with those.
But it does not stop there. You also really have to look into how you are driving traffic to your store, as this matters a lot in eCommerce.

You can always reach out to us if you need anything.

Cheer up! :)

Thx Rachel, speaking of right our noses, I was looking at some products on some website and thought well that's dumb I could buy it cheaper at the dollar store, so I went on eBay and found that I could actually buy a few bars of soap at the dollar store sell about 4 or 5 in a lot on ebay and make a couple bucks after eBay and PayPal fees. Unfortunately only a couple a month would sell butit just goes to show there are ways to make money on eBay you just have to keep your eyes open

Bingo, eyes open is the thing. Opportunity is out there, just have to keep looking for it because it doesn't often find you itself. Speaking of opportunity, stores will be having their end of season run outs shortly, so this is more for the fashion sellers, but watch out for on sale bargains to cash in on.

With the change of season, fashion style stores need to flush out old stock and replenish for the new season and that means some sharp bargains if you're in the right place at the right time, with a little cash to spare. This is the time when you can get some quality brands and prices where it's still easy to make a few dollars flipping on eBay.

So keep your eyes open for end of season sales and don't be afraid of tying to sneak a few dollars more off the sale price. Cash talks and retailers love what it says, so use that to your advantage. Also helps if you buy more than one thing as well, multiple purchases will usually secure you a further discount.
